From Buildings of Iowa, David Gebhard & Gerald Mansheim: "The architect of this house held the irregularity of a picturesque design in check by carefully tying all of the volumes together, and then by emphasizing the horizontal through broad overhanging eaves, projecting gable ends, bands of horizontal shingles and an extensive wraparound porch. A visitor to the dwelling ascends a broad curved stairway that is oriented toward the dominant wide corner bay tower."

1904 historic brownstone in the heart of Estherville Iowa. Conveniently located only 18 miles from Iowa's premiere fishing, boating and recreational haven. The Iowa’s Great Lakes Region encompasses seven beautiful natural lakes. Spirit Lake’s local economy thrives on its rich mix of recreational, industrial and commercial businesses, making it a great place to live, work and raise a family.

This charmer is a 3 story with a full basement. The main floor hosts a kitchen, dining, foyer, parlor, living room and 1/2 bath. The second floor has 3 large bedrooms, each with its own full bath. There is also a common room on the second floor. The 3rd floor has a full bath, 3 bedrooms and the turret room.

Built in cabinets, leaded windows and exquisite inlaid wood floors fill this beauty. Each room is carefully apportioned with period antiques.

A new high-efficiency boiler system was just installed in January, there is an option to add on the on-demand hot water heat to the system. A nice option with a B&B.

This home sits on a 1/2 acre corner lot and also boasts a 2 stall garage, large inviting front porch and a relaxed outdoor patio area.

We have, in the past, rented rooms to traveling nurses working at the local hospital; this kept all guest rooms full the majority of the time.

Purchase of house contents will be considered apart from the sale of the property. This would include furniture, TVs in the bedrooms, light fixtures, china, antiques, paintings and sculptures. Also up for consideration is a huge array of Halloween and Christmas décor, interior and exterior.
