Property Description

This home is back on the market after the sellers accepted an offer from a couple from California whose home sale fell apart, making them unable to finalize the purchase of this stunning property! From these circumstances that have nothing to do with the house or its condition, this rare opportunity is once again being presented for someone else to become the new owner of one of Cedar Rapids’ most distinctive, architecturally significant, McKay-built luxury homes. With nearly 6,300 square feet of finished living space, 5 bedrooms, 4.5 baths, 4 fireplaces, and over $171,000 in recent improvements by the current homeowners! Situated on a rare 1.17 acre in-town, wooded lot with plenty of usable yard, the grounds of this property are substantially elevated from the street level and distant enough from neighbors to show the high value placed on privacy at the time of this Colonial Revival home’s construction in 1919. The classic features of this vintage are here; the Greek, fluted columns that flank the gorgeous front door system with its English elliptical fanlight and six sidelight windows with their beveled glass; the roughcut, rough-faced limestone walls with irregular courses; the gabled dormers with copper side walls, pilasters and stunning architraves; the hardwood floors; the hardy original woodwork, pocket doors and expansive stone fireplaces; and so much more. In a more recent chapter of this home’s storied history, a 2,000 square foot addition was added that totally transformed how this home functions and created a layout and features so highly sought after by today’s buyers, but that are so rare to find in a home of this vintage; features like an open floor plan with direct site lines from the kitchen to the great room and an eat-in kitchen dining space adjacent to the expansive breakfast bar and close to the screened-in porch that keeps everyone included in a gathering. This addition also created soaring ceilings that have allowed for a 28’ stone chimney that anchors the great room and draws your eye up to the robust trussed beams that then turn your attention further up to the charming loft that features custom bookshelves, exposed limestone walls, and open attic windows with shutters that mimic Juliet balconies that have custom shutters to allow privacy for the finished living spaces beyond. Also on offer are a 2nd floor laundry in addition to the lower-level laundry; primary bedroom suite with recently remodeled primary bath with heated flooring, four closets, custom double vanities, and skylight; attached 3-car garage that doubles as a sport court with wooden walls for durability; new garage door openers; new light fixtures inside and out; and new roof (2021); Large family room in the walk-out lower level that has a large kitchenette, a sauna built out and ready for the equipment to restore use; poured foundation with sump pumps; two new furnaces and air conditioners (2017), new water heater (2016), new tankless water heater for primary bath (2021). Custom firepit, new prairie installations that offer privacy and thoughtful habitat. This is a lot, but there is so much more than can be detailed here. Utility Averages: Electric $237/mo and Gas $225/mo. Come see this truly enchanting property for yourself! *Subject to Sale Offer Accepted*
