Dubuque, Iowa

Built on 180+/- of land off of the Mississippi River and within the city that Forbes.com listed as the Best City to Raise a Family, this Dubuque, Iowa log estate has been designed as though it was built by the forest surrounding its crops and open fields. Much of this primitive mansion has been hand-crafted and designed by artists; from the custom light-fixtures to the waterfall in the master bathroom designed to recreate a waterfall from a creek off of one of the many hiking trails on the land. It hosts six large bedrooms along with six bathrooms/ four half baths and six fireplaces scattered around this indoor forest. Natural materials were used as much as possible in the architecture of this home to create the most natural feel possible. Built into the log styled walls and floors you will find Oklahoma stone, this feature is used throughout the entire home and is most impressive on the hand carved fire surround in the large living room. While the home may appear to be old country at a glance, you will find nothing short of top-line quality. The gourmet kitchen is decorated with Durasupreme cabinetry and granite counter tops along with enough appliances to run a restaurant. Sub Zero refrigerators and dual refrigerator drawers, two dishwashers, a six burner Wolf stove, and double oven with griddle are just a few of the things that work together to create what is easily a chef’s dream. Even your office/ library has been touched by Mother Nature herself with hand-carved doors and cherry covered ceilings. On this same floor level you will also find a laundry room with dual washer and dryers, a double sink, and a dog wash station. The floor below continues to impress with a personal exercise room, theater, and hand crafted bar with its own appliances. Outside the home you will find a personal pond along with the river just outside your door. The list of eye-popping amenities in and out of this woodsman’s castle goes on and on seemingly endlessly. The property will be auctioned with J.P. King Auction. For more information contact J.
