This c.1880 handyman special needs a bit of TLC to spruce up the exterior, but I love the kitchen cupboards and original woodwork! It is located in a great, small town neighborhood. And for biking and walking enthusiasts, the Iowa River Bike Path runs directly behind the lot’s wooded rear yard.


Steamboat Rock (pop. 310) was named in 1855 for a large rock on the river bluff which is said to resemble a line of steamboats from a distance.

This handyman special home has great potential. It is a ‘must see’ for those looking for charm, character and space in a small town setting. It is sitting on top of a hill and the newly constructed Iowa River Bike Path runs directly behind the property’s wooded back yard.

The interior woodwork is beautiful. The main floor has a sunny eat in kitchen that overlooks the wooded back yard, perfect for birdwatching. The main floor also has a dining room, living room, 3/4 bath, laundry and master bedroom.

The second story has three nice size bedrooms and a bonus room that looks out over the Iowa River Bike Path to the south. The bonus room could be a nice office space or used as a sitting porch. Call Jennings Real Estate today to set up a showing.
