Description of 1370 Creamery Road, Decorah

Acreage along Bear Creek Trout Stream.

We have an accepted offer at this time, March 19th, working through contingencies of the offer and can continue to take backup offers until all contingencies have been removed from the offer. Showings of the home itself are being delayed until we work through the effects of our winter weather conditions that occurred over the last few weeks.

You can enjoy the sound of the water rippling over the rocky streambed as you relax on this secluded setting with a Victorian style home overlooking the valley and trout stream.

The 3 Bedroom 2 -story home is nestled on a wooded slope well above the height of the trout stream with a open meadow area on a bench above the banks of the stream.  The lower entrance lane services this bench area and a second driveway easement at the end of Creamery Rd. allows you to park near the covered front porch of the home.


2 Springs on the property once assisted the CREAMERY operated on this parcel around the 1910 timeframe to have a Spring-house to keep the dairy products cool during the Summer and from freezing in the winter months. Great opportunity to create your own FEN Marsh area for unique native plants that love cold wet soils year-round(or construct a walk-in spring house to store your micro brews) 

Recent RipRap completed along a dry run, new gravel added to the lower service lane to the open bench area along the creek bank. Much of the original features to the home still in home and in good condition - 5 panel doors on both levels, original hardware- door knobs- hinges- pocket door to the formal front parlor, acid etched glass on front door, millwork around doors and windows. 2 covered porches, the screen doors are period correct for 1910. Ceiling in master bedroom expanded up through the attic so the light from the arched attic window now comes into the bedroom area. Formal dining room with hardwood flooring, working woodburning stove, built-in hutch and large glass window for ample light and view of the valley with trout stream below the home. WOOD lap siding recently painted to highlight the details and trim of the exterior ( NO Vinyl) Rock basement foundation has been professionally tuckpointed. Recent roof replacement with new sheathing before shingles installed- original wood shingled first layer and all layers over them were totally removed. 200 Amp breaker box in basement. Laundry area on main level within the kitchen. 90% + Eff. forced air furnace. Septic is undergoing time of transfer inspection this month to show fully within code of Iowa standards. Walk from your home right to the South Bear Trout stream, fish from the banks of your property. The Highland General Store is just a short walk from this location for your grocery or tackle / hunting needs for the week. You can spend time in this island of solitude and step away from cell phones and internet interruptions of your personal -vacation time, BUT.... it is possible to have high speed internet and a cell phone hotspot at this location if you just can't be totally disconnected. Irregular shaped LOT has a service access road near the creek bank on the lower portion of the tract for parking, home is on the highest elevation well above the trout stream with a separate lane access to that upper hillside of the parcel.
