This iconic Iowa City historical home on Summit Street was renovated while preserving sought-after authentic details like original, exterior five-pointed star bolts and areas of hardwood flooring running on the diagonal. This all-brick home with vintage exterior woodwork, floor-to-ceiling windows flanking the front door, a chimney on each end of the house, and an expansive front porch, is a testament to symmetrical design standing the test of time. Margaret N. Keyes reports in her book Nineteenth Century Home Architecture of Iowa City the property was built as a farmhouse beyond city limits and is the earliest home on South Summit Street. Here is a chance to take part in classic legacy. A large front lawn ushers you to a covered front porch, with blue-painted ceiling, in harmony with lush, floral surroundings. The front door, complete with mechanical doorbell, opens to a spacious main-floor living plan not commonly found in classic, original homes. The living room offers multiple possibilities for sitting and reading areas. A formal dining area with a distinctive bay window is open to the living room. The main-floor family room, with built-in bookshelves and storage cabinets, also opens to the living room. The flow of the house is both leisurely and intentional. At the back of the home is a gorgeous kitchen designed with purpose. An island with a kitchen sink affords prep space, the wall of built-in cabinets offers plentiful storage, and major appliances are placed to maximize countertop areas and blend with the overall airy aesthetic. Creative spaces exist thanks to glass doors on upper cabinets, a nook in the built-in, and a cabinet top adjoining the windowsill. Natural light abounds throughout the home, and the kitchen is no exception, thanks to a seamless den addition designed by architect Sue Licht in 1994. The den overlooks a grassy backyard, and casement windows without center bars offer unobstructed views. A peaked ceiling design combined with the numerous windows and a glass exterior door brings volume to the vaulted space. The den is open to the kitchen and has plenty of room for a breakfast table and working desk. The main floor also includes a powder room, laundry closet, and access to the unfinished basement. A small back deck area, ideal for grilling, is reached from the den or a convenient hallway. Steps from the back deck lead to the driveway and backyard. A beautiful open stairwell with woodwork details accentuates the uncommonly high ceilings of the main living areas. The stairs lead to a spacious landing and accommodate yet-another sitting space.
