Listing No. 32901

1853 Italianate Victorian
Fort Madison, IA

Walking up to the freshly painted front porch you can feel the history emanating from this 1853 former nunnery. If walls could talk this wonderfully maintained 4000 plus sq feet home would have more than one secret to tell.

One fascinating secret, is that there is a river view from the upper-level balcony. Watch a storm roll in over the river and change colors during sunrise and sunset right before your eyes.

The main floor has beautiful hard wood floors with an inlaid pattern, 1/2-bathroom, formal living room, formal dining room, sitting room, kitchen with butler's pantry and a 4-season room.

On the upper level you will find 4 bedrooms (with a possible 5th nonconforming) 2 bathrooms and laundry.

A 2-car detached garage rounds out this spectacular historic property. Located within walking distance to 3 city parks, and the historic downtown area, your family will have quick access to recreation and local activities.
