Property Description

Want a one-of a kind property? This 127+ acre estate, located an hour from Iowa City or five minutes from Fairfield is located on pavement and is truly a special property, teeming with wildlife AND privacy. The rolling, wooded terrain through much of this acreage has multiple trails throughout, with numerous opportunities to spot wildlife, as well as a stream-fed pond. What about the house? Well, this all-brick, Georgian-style manor house is truly special, with unparalleled quality of construction and numerous details throughout. It's laid out for entertaining on a substantial scale, yet has plenty of more intimate spaces to enjoy throughout. Pictures don't do this house justice, as each visit reveals more terrific details. While one can detach from the world here, it's still well-connected to the outside world, with rural water and fiber internet to the house. Whether you make this your private weekend getaway retreat, a quiet and secluded country inn, a base for a hunting resort, or something completely different, the opportunities here are one-of-a-kind.
