This magnificent Italianate style home holds some golden memories of Cedar Falls' past. It was built in 1876 by Peter Melendy, one of the city's pioneers. This historical gem sits on a half acre corner lot within walking distance of downtown. It includes 6 fireplaces, 5 bedrooms, 4 baths, 3 living areas, 2 staircases and main level laundry room. The exotic dining room hardwoods have alternating panels of walnut & maple and the winding front stairway is guarded by a gorgeous mahogany handrail. The natural looking gas fireplace in the living room is framed by an intricately hand carved mantle imported from Boston. You'll love the screen porch which overlooks an incredibly private yard framed by mature shade trees. The master bedroom has a huge walk-in closet, exposed red brick fireplace, updated bathroom and large sun porch. The master closet is connected to a bedroom set up perfectly for a nursery. The kitchen has a new stove & microwave, cozy breakfast nook and has views of both large side yards. This character-filled beauty was set up as a 'Forever Home' with wheel-chair accessibility, roll-in shower and first floor bedroom. And, since a large storage space was added on, the 2 stall garage could easily be converted to a 3-stall. The basement has endless storage space and endless possibilities. The mechanicals have been meticulously maintained. The owners purchased this landmark in 1986 and have always enjoyed having friends and family over to watch the Sturgis Falls Parade from their wraparound front porch and sprawling lawn. This is a special home. Take a tour and make it yours. (priced $40,000 below assessed value) OPEN HOUSE every Sunday 12:00-1:00
