                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2011

                          About the owner: I grew up in Iowa near here and enjoyed the family picnics at the state park. My extended family is still in the area! We now live in downtown Chicago, and this retreat is a great escape from our hectic lives.

                          Why the Owner Chose Iowa City:
                          My family has been enjoying Lake MacBride since it first opened. My grandmother told me about her experiences growing up and enjoying the lake so she made sure to bring her children. My mother has great stories of Lake MacBride and the Coralville Reservoir and she made sure to bring me and my brothers! Now a fourth generation, my own daughters, are growing up with peace and tranquility because of this fabulous property.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Look at the pictures! Words cannot express the beauty of this home and area.
