770 Barber Place

Located in the Peninsula Neighborhood


High Above the Iowa River Valley



With no detail left to chance, the vintage craftsmanship of this fine brick ranch home in the Peninsula Neighborhood offers exceptional quality. Its design, materials, and surfaces reflect a desire for the very best.


Situated prominently on a prime circle of beautiful properties, this home’s well-placed windows look out to its expansive wooded lot and on to the Iowa River Valley below.  To the east, owners will enjoy a friendly urban streetscape.












From the soft reflections of light on stunning hardwood floors, to wide white craftsman trim, wooden plantation shutters, and sophisticated traditional lighting throughout the interior, this is a place of understated elegance, well-planned privacy, and ultimate comfort.



Here, the continuity of charm and character are extraordinary, with a stately presence that begins as one views the home’s red brick, black shutters, and white trim from the street.  The large front porch is welcoming with the pleasing formal and traditional touch of large brick-based white columns spanned by a wooden railing over finely crafted balusters.




From the covered porch one enters a foyer to a gallery from which rooms and large open spaces are accessed gracefully. To the left of the foyer is a parlor or guest bedroom with direct access to a full bath that also opens to main-level living areas and serves as a powder room.  To the right is a study or third main-level bedroom.  Next on the left off the gallery is the laundry and mudroom that conveniently connects the kitchen to the oversized two-car garage.  Straight ahead is a stairway down to the walk-out lower level.








At the end of the gallery and to the right is a dramatically open floor plan incorporating the kitchen, dining area, and formal Great Room with a beautiful fireplace, all ideal for gracious entertaining as well as daily activities in style. Due to the expanse of the living areas, the home accommodates central elements and functions such as formal dining and buffet settings with room to spare.  The kitchen is eye-catching, with detailed white cabinets topped with black granite.  There is generous kitchen storage, and a convenient layout, including a breakfast bar that includes the sink.  A screened porch is centered on the open living area and easily reached from the Great Room, dining area, or kitchen.






Just off the open living and dining spaces, the master bedroom suite offers sumptuous space but retains cozy elegance.  It has two large walk-in closets, a soaking tub and separate shower, and two separate sink areas.  Continued here is well-crafted white cabinetry topped with black granite.




While the home is ideal for one-floor living, it also has a large lower level that includes a family room opening to a walk-out patio with wonderful views, a recreation/bonus area, wet bar/potential second kitchen, fourth bedroom, full bath, and mechanical/storage space.


At 770 Barber Place you will find the kind a detail, quality, thoughtful layout, elevated and attractive wooded lot with a fenced yard, and elegant architecture you can be proud of.  Along with ownership comes access to the benefits and character of the now-renowned Peninsula Neighborhood, with its small, vintage-town ambiance and its proximity to the restaurants, entertainment venues, and other amenities of the Iowa City area.
