Elegant country home in beautiful, natural setting 5 miles north of Fairfield, Iowa

Our Story

Sixteen years ago we built what many people say is their favorite house in our community. Naturally, we agree with this sentiment; it’s truly been a wonderful place to raise our family. Our Vastu home is elegant yet livable, surrounded by natural beauty, and has been filled with light, love, fun and good health these past fifteen years. It is so solidly built it still feels like new. But now our nest is getting empty and we have a desire to downsize. Accordingly, we have decided to offer our house and property for sale and let someone else enjoy the beauty and serenity of this special place.
