If you like privacy this is the place. Enjoy a gorgeous Iowa sunset as you relax with a cool drink on the front porch. Sit on the expansive deck in back. Look across the pond into the woods & enjoy the sound of silence. At dusk listen to the frogs & crickets. Look skyward on a warm summer day, you may spot a bald eagle or red tailed hawk. Enjoy a sunrise over the pond at daybreak. Everything birds & other animals need is just outside your door. 2 ponds, a ravine with running water, savanna, meadows, & gardens provide for frogs, butterflies, bees, and birds. A new faun taking its 1st meal, a turtle leaving the pond to lay her eggs, & the silent blue heron fishing the pond edge are a small part of what you can observe. Hike the trails through meadows, past the cedar grove & down the ravine amongst the oaks & other hardwoods. Stop by the wildflower garden & see how many species you can identify. When winter comes, enjoy the comfort of radiant heat in the garage and walkout level.
