Convenience in a Friendly Neighborhood
For the discerning buyer who seeks a modern, well-maintained, low-maintenance home on one level in a quiet, well-constructed vintage-style building in the sought-after Peninsula Neighborhood, this condominium in The Oaks has everything to offer.
In its 1,250 square feet, plus an expansive porch with timber and green space views, are two bedrooms, two baths, and an open floor plan incorporating the living, dining, and kitchen areas in an elegant transitional style, with a dove-grey palette and generous white trim throughout.
The living area’s gas fireplace has a white subway tile surround and nicely crafted white mantel. This 19-by-20-foot room has a triple-section sliding door with views through the large and lofty porch to a rolling forested bluff. This large window/door is but one source of the generous natural light that fills elegant and restful spaces.
The floors are a dark and durable wood laminate in the open areas and soft beige carpeting in the bedrooms.
The white kitchen has complementary grey quartz countertops, including on the breakfast bar-island, and this attractive and highly durable quartz is repeated with quality in the baths. The kitchen also features excellent lighting, finely crafted cabinetry and functional, attractive stainless steel appliances, including a gas range and French-door refrigerator. A laundry closet with full-sized stacked washer and dryer is convenient from the kitchen.
This well-designed condominium’s master bedroom has an en-suite bath and walk-in closet, and the guest bedroom (or study) at the opposite side of the living area has easy access to a second full bath.
The Oaks building has lovely lobby areas, an elevator from its secure parking and storage areas below, surface spaces for a second car or guest parking, three compact multi-use common rooms, and mailboxes off the main lobby.
The homeowners association is well established, and the building is a neighborhood itself, although allowing great privacy for those who wish it. As part of the Peninsula Neighborhood, this second-floor home has access to walking paths, Après Wine Bar and Bistro next door, a nearby dog park, a walking bridge across the Iowa River to Coralville shopping and restaurants, and good proximity to the numerous amenities of downtown Iowa City. It is served by Iowa City buses on a regular and frequent schedule, and there is easy access to main routes to the Eastern Iowa Airport and to Cedar Rapids.
The Peninsula Neighborhood is an achievement in old-style friendliness and a vintage old-town ambiance with trend-setting interiors--and 1144 Swisher St. is an achievement in elegant and highly comfortable, convenient living.
