Back 2.08 acres are in a forest preserve (for lower taxes). For the last 25 years, this secluded paradise has been the owners own enchanted castle. From the light refracting through the custom stained glass high within the turrets, to the antique chandeliers and woodwork throughout, this home has so much character it it difficult to pick a favorite part. Each of the three large bedrooms offers its own private retreat with en-suite bathroom, secluded sitting room, and sweeping views of the wildlife outside. Majestic gardens have been lovingly maintained and the three acre lot is filled with memories of kids and grandkids exploring in their own personal park. It is hard to believe that this gated, secluded property is less than 5 minutes away from most of Cedar Rapids' best dining and shopping. They will miss the home, but are happy to share this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for a new family to find their own dream castle and begin new adventures.
