704 North St. Decorah, Iowa 52101
3+ bedroom home, near Luther College, 100% gut-rehab of entire property
This is probably the “newest, old house” in all of Decorah. It has just undergone a 15 month complete rehab. It was gutted to the studs and rebuilt. Virtually everything is new, spaces have been reconfigured, and high-end finishes have been used throughout. It has been constructed and decorated utilizing a professional interior designer, as well as home/landscape designers.
The property had been a student rental/fraternity house/party house for over 30 years. The developer is a neighbor who has eliminated several college rentals in the neighborhood and has returned them to high-end single family dwellings. Consequently, nearly the entire neighborhood has been upgraded and is a quiet, established area of family residences. It is now a peaceful place to call home!
City-approved 5 year property tax abatement on 44% of the asking price, providing significant savings to the buyer.
The renovation of this property has been a labor of love, along with a desire to create a peaceful neighborhood for all. It is located within eye-sight of the Upper Iowa (far above flooding concerns), 2 blocks from the bike trail, and is immediately adjacent to Luther College. It provides the best of all worlds: charm, elegance, efficiency, convenience, location, and value. It has become an airy, spacious, highly efficient home, looking for an appreciative new owner who wants a move-in ready property in a wonderful location.
