Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Richard and Michelle Naughton live in Marshalltown IA. Semi-retired after operating ServiceMaster of Marshalltown Inc. Two of our three sons still work the business.

Why the Owner Chose Montrose, IA, USA:
We feel blessed to have found this property. What an awesome place to be able to use and share with others. We never thought that sitting on a deck doing nothing but watching the river flow by and seeing all the wildlife that comes with it, i.e., Eagles, pelicans, seagulls, geese, etc. could be so intriguing and relaxing.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the fact that the river is only 50' away. It is unusual to find a place on the river that doesn't have either railroad tracks or a road between the house and the river. It is a quiet well kept neighborhood, friendly neighbors and close to larger cities if needed. Sitting on the deck whether it be day or night, watching the wildlife or the reflection of the Navoo temple on the river or a view of the stars!!!
