Description

Sitting atop a hill, the Armstrong mansion exudes the elegance of an earlier era. The structure, which was designed by Demon and Fisk and built by Theodore Stark and Sons in 1903, was moved from its original location to Forest Dr. in the early 1900s. Only six families have owned the home, most of which were relatives to the Armstrong’s. The grand entrance has a large foyer and open staircases, evoking the romance of simpler times. The second floor contains five bedrooms and two baths, along with a large foyer. The once-glorious ballroom on the third floor is now a family space that preserves the original pine floors and paneled walls. Updates to the eat-in kitchen include high-end appliances and marble counter tops. The large dinning room, living room, and library all showcase new lighting, crown moldings, revitalized pocket doors, and fresh paint. The breathtaking grounds contain a unique glass conservatory and gardens that are documented in the Smithsonian. If you love history, don't miss your chance to own the most iconic home in Cedar Rapids . Call today for a private showing.
