Property Description

Designed in 1930 by the noted Decorah architect, Charles Alfillisch (https://www.decorahia.org/historic-tour/407-e-main-st), this historic, elegant stucco family home, located on Main Street and just a short walk from downtown Decorah, offers you a unique combination of attention to original character and integration of smart technology. As an unusually well-preserved example of the Tudor Cottage, with its steep gables, cat-slide roof, and broad-faced chimney, the house is distinguished by a sunburst brick pattern around the entryway. Upon entry through the arched doorway, you’re greeted by attention to detail in every corner—meticulously preserved birch stairway, oak floors, and eight-paneled doors with original brass and glass doorknobs. Off the dining room, you’ll see a secluded, large stamped-concrete patio and cedar pergola perfect for entertaining. Upstairs, there are three bedrooms with original hardwood floors, as well as a full bath, ideal for your family members or visitors. In the basement, a ¾ bath and a small workshop are nice additions. Also, you’ll adore the large fireplace and its original, simple birch mantle, small birch wood frame, and red brick hearth frame and hearth extension. Lastly, a two-door garage is tailor-made for your vehicle and storage needs. As noted earlier, this home combines historic charm with smart technology. Regarding the latter, Yoolax Shangri-la smart blinds have been added to three main bedroom windows. Additionally, items such as a DiversiTech wet switch flood detector, Hue smart bulbs in many rooms, and motion sensors inside and out are astute upgrades you’ll find to be of great value. Also, a Honeywell Smart thermostat with RedLINK internet gateway makes it possible for you to control the home heating and cooling from anywhere in the world via smartphone. With your Alexa hub, you will be connected. This new technology not only offers you tremendous comfort and security, but also provides you with considerable financial savings from one month to the next. To put it simply, this is a one-of-a-kind home–charming, iconic, and fitted to today’s needs. See it now!
