Simply elegant. The thoughtful and careful craftsmanship of this passive solar home will astound you. Orientation of the home (1/4 mile off the road) is such that the light is captured for warmth in winter and the breeze in summer. The 3" solid concrete floor in living room retains the heat in the winter and cools in the summer. 6" thick exterior walls. Solid center cut oak beams accent the 10' ceilings add to the stature and visual out the 4 beautiful glass doors on the main level. Flooring is 3/4" quarter sawn white oak. Iron railing on the stairway artist designed and crafted to resemble prairie grass & wheat, mimics leaves and this theme is carried throughtout the home. Iron work supporting shelves also artist designed and made. Custom built cabinet, also quarter sawn oak accented with antique panels. Solid oak doors throughout the home. Light fixtures are antique brass solid cast, not plated. Kitchen workspace is wonderful, added area beneath the pantry near the mudroom. Pantry shelves are especially deep and easily accommodate items that need to be tucked away and provide a secondary work space in the kitchen. Mud room shelves are actually benches that are presently stacked. Laundry is in the basement but the main floor Mudroom could easily allow for a stacked set of washer and dryer. Windows are dual pane and low e glass, casements open out and up. Zoned heat, gas forced air & heat pump on the upper level. Wood stove (Jotel) is 98% efficient, very low soot & rated for heating 2000 sq.ft. There are extra trusses that afford the sturdiness of the floor and construction. Both bathrooms have tile floors. The downstairs bath has antique cabinet w/marble top. Loft has built-in oak bookshelves.The blackboard in the loft is out of the Newton Depot when it was remodeled in the 1930's (so it pre-dates that time.) Coat closet by the front door and ample storage in other closets and more unfinished storage in the basement. Tornado shelter into the basement has a door that locks into the frame and has fresh air access. It is also a gun safe if needed and the security camera control panel is in that 4x6 safe room. 50 year Composition Roof. Outbuilding is 24'x50' w/concrete floor (6" slab) and has a hydrant but not plumbing inside the building. It is American Steel heavy duty arch construction, self supporting.

You cannot help but appreciate the 7-10 acres of dense trees, deer, wild turkey, pheasant and all manner of wildlife meandering. 50' x 100' dog run. Harvey County East Lake is less than a mile to the North, scenic campgrounds, fishing, etc. Seller has original blue print. Info reliable but not guaranteed.
