$500,000 ▪ 2532 Sq Ft ▪ 4 bed ▪ 2 bath ▪ MLS: 202202858

Perched on a hill and nestled amongst flora and fauna on a secluded street, this home offers the iconic Manville Heights lifestyle. The location of 145 Oakridge is superb, offering walkability to both upper and lower Iowa City Park, various playgrounds, baseball fields, tennis courts, City Park Pool, Hancher Auditorium, and the Iowa River Trail. From the landscaped front lawn with limestone details and tiered planting areas to the patios, winding stone walking paths, and upper yard space, this property is a gardeners' paradise. The large formal living room has a gas fireplace, built-in bookshelves, and plenty of space for a reading nook. The sunroom is located off the living room and thanks to its Eastern exposure, morning light pours through the space and onto beautiful hardwoods. The sunroom has ample windows for cross breezes and electric heat in the ceiling can be utilized during the colder months. A convenient office is on the main level with views of the surrounding landscaping and City Park in the distance. A full bath on the main level has character and offers convenience. Views of City Park can also be enjoyed from the formal living room. However, it’s the completely remodeled kitchen and adjoining dining/sitting area that steals the show. During 2015/2016 Lammers Construction crafted a kitchen that blends a modern palette, beautiful surfaces, creative cabinet storage, and contemporary preferences with the home’s original charm. A large peninsula/breakfast bar overlooks the adjoining dining and sitting area. Here we see a flare for the dramatic thanks to a vaulted ceiling, numerous skylights, and plentiful windows offering views of the backyard. Upstairs the primary bedroom is characterized by hardwood floors and wonderful windows allowing natural light to pour in, as well as views of City Park. Three additional bedrooms are upstairs bringing the total bedroom count to four. A full bath with a similar creative character as the main level bath is located upstairs. The lower level has a well-sized family/recreation room with a built-in, unfinished storage/mechanical area, and a workshop space once used for a previous owner’s photography hobby. The lower level also offers access to the attached two-car garage. Outdoor entertaining spaces abound thanks to the large concrete patio above the garage and accessed from the sunroom. A deck is located off the kitchen/sitting/dining area and is perfect for grilling. A discreet closet on the deck is prime gardening storage. Enjoy discovering the beautiful plants, landscape details, and upper backyard as you view this home. It truly is an oasis at the end of the day. This home’s exterior was recently repainted. New roof in 2021. New gutters in 2021.

Directions: Park Road to Holt Avenue. Left on Oakridge Avenue.
