Mid-Century Marvel

Character and Upgrades in Windsor Heights



With four bedrooms and three renovated baths, this 1959 ranch in Windsor Heights has generous space and features upgraded for today’s living but retains a highly-sought architectural style.


This home’s shaded street presence is attractive not only for its sleek and linear Mid-Century-Modern profile, but also for its green front landscape  including  a lush weeping evergreen surrounded by attractive plantings in a large circle of limestones.


The welcoming and protective front stoop is recessed beneath the roof.  Upon entering the foyer one is delighted by reflections of natural light on recently installed hardwood floors.






The large, open living and dining area is highlighted by a substantial floor-to-chimney wood-burning fireplace of limestone.  The pleasing view from this open and comfortable entertaining and daily-living space is green--a large fenced yard backed by trees that add privacy.  The dining area opens to a sundeck that expands living space when good weather calls.




The kitchen has a spacious and highly functional layout with oak cabinetry and stainless-steel appliances.  A convenient pantry adds to already generous kitchen storage space.






The main-level 20x13 sq.-ft. master bedroom can accommodate a sitting or desk area and has close access to a tiled full bath. This level includes a spacious second bedroom/study with attractive corner windows, as well as a second full bath




Off the foyer at the edge of the living-dining space is an open stairway to the lower level, highlighted on the main level by white balusters topped by a red-oak rail. The lower level has ample natural light and includes a 24x14 sq.-ft family room, the third and fourth good-sized bedrooms, and the home’s third full bath. The laundry, mechanical room, and storage complete this level.


Among recent upgrades beyond main-level hardwood floors are three remodeled baths, a good number of new windows, new red oak interior doors and trim, new storm doors, and an extensively remodeled lower level, including new carpet and a light-emitting window well. The home’s heating/air-conditioning system was replaced in 2012.




This largely remodeled ranch home and mature lot on Rochester Avenue’s is a warm and welcoming place to be, and is conveniently located near schools and the Iowa City area’s acclaimed amenities and diversions.
