1882 Victorian

322 Fifth St E
Fifth Street Bluff District
Ottumwa, Iowa

A Piece of History

Built in 1882, this 4+ bedroom, 3 bath Victorian sits on the Fifth Street Bluff Historic District in Ottumwa, IA. The Bluffs are a major landscape feature and placed an important role in Ottumwa's development. The Fifth Street Bluff District is a prestigious residential neighborhood of well-groomed yards and brick-laid streets and was established in 1843. It is listed in the National Register of Historic Places. This home is unique with much originality, style, materials, and character rarely found in today's homes.
Enter this beautiful Victorian Home from a lovely foyer with a beveled glass window. Go through French doors into an elegant sitting room. The focal points of the sitting room are two original stained glass windows and a beautiful swan chandelier. Pocket doors take you to a huge, but cozy, living room. The front porch entrance has a Victorian era lamp post which gives it an authentic ambience.
