A Beautiful Ranch Condo in Marion - A Must-See!

This is one you need to see . . .

335 Antler Court, Marion

Listing courtesy of Chad Gloede, RE/MAX Concepts.

What are you dreaming of for your next home?

Open floor plan? 

Updated and move-in ready? 

Bright with lots of windows? 

Living Room and Family Room? 

Bonus room for office or workout space? 


Large main-floor Laundry? 

2 stall attached garage? 

Quick access to major roads but on a quiet street? 

This Ranch condo checks all those items and more.

1335 sf on the main level plus an additional 995 finished below, so there's no shortage of space.
Not only does the main level have all that you need, it has beautiful finishes - lovely flooring, granite counter tops, and a subway tile backsplash.  

Follow along on our tour.

But first, some basic information:
3 bedrooms, 3 baths
Built in 2000
Pets are welcome!
Annual Taxes: $3210
Association fee: $125/month
All kitchen appliances as well as washer and dryer.
This home is on a quiet cul-de-sac plus has nice curb appeal!
Here's the view from the front door.  Note the tall ceilings.
You'll appreciate the open-concept floor plan - the main level is airy and bright.  
Granite counters and subway tile for the back splash lend a fresh feel.
The island offers additional prep space as well as seating.  This home has great flow.
Appliances are included - Dishwasher, disposal, microwave, range and refrigerator.
A refreshingly beautiful and functional kitchen.

The living room has space for plenty of seating. 
There's newer carpet in the living room and bedroom.
Built-in shelves for displaying special items or books in the living room.
A view from the living room.
The view toward the front of the house: stairwell, laundry room, main bath and bedroom.
Welcome to the spacious master suite!

The master bath has a double vanity and large walk-in closet.
Notice the tile accents over the tub, which also frame the vanity mirror.
Cheerful, fresh main bathroom
The Laundry room is off the garage.

Laundry room storage
Grab your things as you head out the door
What a beautiful family room space!  
Yes, this is the lower level but with the light streaming in and the abundance of 
windows it doesn't feel like it.
Who can resist a great gas fireplace for our cold winter months?
Additional view of the living room, as well as entry to the 3rd bedroom and bonus room.
3rd bedroom in the lower level offers privacy for family or guests - their own retreat.
This unexpected room might be my favorite!  It has rustic charm and endless possibilities - anything from an office or craft room to a great workout area.  

There's a 3rd bathroom, rounding out the lower level as a retreat space.
It's pretty cute too - check out the corrugated metal on the exterior of the shower stall.

Enjoy the deck during the warmer months and remember, pets are welcome!

Thank you for taking a look at this Marion home.

New Listing - 625 Concord Lane NW, Cedar Rapids

625 Concord Lane NW

Beautiful NW Cedar Rapids Home

Quiet neighborhood, Great location

4 Bedroom, 2 bath L-Foyer

You might be asking, what is an L-foyer?

Upon entering the front door you'll find a generous sized foyer where there's 
usually a large coat closet.  There's a door that leads to the garage
 and then steps that lead either upstairs or down. The house itself runs the depth
 of the yard, unlike a Ranch would, which generally runs the width of the yard.

Once a buyer has looked at an L-foyer, they can appreciate what a great plan it is. 
 Both upstairs and downstairs are spacious plus there's room for storage,
 something that's often scarce in a split-foyer or even split-level plan.

Clean, well-maintained - it's ready for you to call home!
