The moment you step through the front door, you realize you have entered an exceptional gem of architecture. Designed in 1927 by an international Swedish architect, the rich details welcome all who enter. It takes a moment to soak in the double mahogany staircases, original crystal lighting and exquisite mosaic Italian floor tile. The living room with beamed ceilings is set off by the focal point fireplace with flanking Inglenooks. Peaceful, southern light floods the room.
Across from the center hall, sits the large formal dining room with coved ceilings. The charming breakfast room offers more intimate dining. The original kitchen footprint has been enlarged and is currently a clean slate for you to design your gourmet kitchen. A passageway from the kitchen accesses the three-stall garage and proposed Southern Terrace. Ascending one of the double staircases on the second floor is the light filled family room. Designed to offer space for social gatherings, this original feature of the house has 6-foot-tall windows on three sides and access to the exterior Western Terrace.
Also on the second floor is the large primary bedroom as well as two large bedrooms. A proposed primary bathroom on the front of the house will make for a beautifully designed ensuite. The deep basement features an original game room, two new egress windows, a proposed fourth bedroom, full bathroom, and laundry room. You will find endless opportunities for customization of this space!
Considerable structural and mechanical updates have been added within the past year including a 400-amp electrical service, new HVAC system, plumbing upgrades and a new Ludowici clay tile roof. Located in one of Sioux City’s premier Historic neighborhoods, the sweeping Prairie style design offers eight large original outdoor planters on the terraces to bring the feel of the outside inside. Offered to the public for the first time in years, here is your chance to make this significant piece of Prairie design yours!
