Property Notes

This Ottumwa treasure has had the same owner since 1965. Originally owned by the Morrell Foster family, this is a one of a kind great family home with the Ottumwa Golf Course in its back yard. You will enjoy the beautiful views year round from the floor to ceiling windows in the architecturally designed kitchen with cabinets made from native walnut. The outdoors continues to come right inside from the spacious formal dining room and living room full of great built ins. There is a 4 seasons room with Pella windows right off the living room. The main floor den features a Stone City fireplace-from Grant Wood's art colony. Upstairs you will find four large bedrooms, again with special architectural touches throughout. The master suite continues the beautiful golf course views, along with ample room for relaxing, a great built in closet/dressing room and a master bath. The basement is finished with an Asian touch, providing an area for children to entertain their guests, play games and enjoy. There isn't another home in Ottumwa designed quite like this one with all of the executive touches. Make an appointment to see a home where pride in ownership prevails!

“My wife and I lived in the same community as John. We tried to sell our house by ourselves for 2 years before we decided to list with John and Remax. During those two years, John would stop by frequently to see if we would be interested in listing our home with him.
