Art and Architecture meet in this rare adaptive reuse of a 1923 3-story school building. Referred by many as a ''Prairie Castle,'' this fully renovated, all-brick structure offers fantastic 360-degree views of rural Iowa with its expansive windows. Located just north east of Ames, Iowa, the property is zoned Agricultural residential. With ~22,000 square feet of conditioned space, plus an additional garage/shop of 5,800 square feet, this re-imagined school is nimble and flexible in its ability to take on new and creative uses. Located in the heart of the American Cultivation Corridor, this structure is ideal for potential entrepreneurial start-ups and incubation of business ideas would find inspiration as well. Featuring a four bedroom, five bath, with two full kitchens and three morning kitchens. The rooms feature spacious ceiling heights of 10'-23', exposed structural and brick elements, and original maple flooring. New lighting, fireplaces, appliances, and trim bring modern living updates along with a 3-stop elevator that provides full accessibility. Overall improvements include a new roof, windows, electric, plumbing, HVAC, and tuck-pointing. (More details on a separate sheet.) As this building celebrates its 100th anniversary this year, you can be sure it is well-positioned to embark on its next journey!
