Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
This home was built in 1896 and sits on a hard surface road about 43 miles east of Des Moines Iowa and 4 1/2 miles east of Newton and the Iowa Speedway. Interstate 80 is less than 2 miles to the south. Grinnell is 12 miles to the east. There are 13 acres with a 1 ¼ acre pond.

The space
This home is an old farm house that is close to the Newton Speedway and Grinnell College. It sits on 13 acres and has a pond with an awesome beach! There are walking trails and a flower garden. There is a concrete pad down by the beach where you can grill or just sit out and enjoy the sights and sounds of the country. It is also a great place to look at the stars. If you walk the path and then across the yard to the orchard then you can get a mile walk in. There is also a gravel road to the north of the house that you could walk or jog on. The highway is a little busy, I would be careful, but there are lots of bicycles.

Where you’ll be

Kellogg, Iowa, United States

I technically don't have a neighborhood, but I have a couple of neighbors across the highway and there is a neighbor to the east of my pond. Otherwise the house is surrounded on two side by a farm field (south and west), my land (east) and the highway (north).

I am a Realtor and work a lot of weird hours. I enjoy people so being a Realtor is a good fit for me! My relaxation is my home. I love being at my house because it's warm and cozy and the land is incredible. I do a lot of flower gardening, reading and taking walks. I spend a lot of time on my beach soaking up the sunshine or enjoying a fire and listening to the bull frogs.
