Prospective homeowners looking for something out of the ordinary in Cedar Rapids can find exceptional features in an award-winning home by Precision Builders.
Unique blends of rustic wood and industrial accents run throughout the house, currently for sale at 6007 Sanden Rd. NE. The five-bedroom, 3 1/2-bath home, in the Wexford Heights addition conveniently located off Blairs Ferry Road, won its price category during the Fall Parade of Homes.
That rustic/industrial theme is seen from first glance outside at the sturdy, dark barnwood-style garage doors and lighter cultured stone, which set the tone for what’s inside.
Kelly Wulfekuhle, owner of Precision Builders with her husband, Arron, said visitors on the Parade of Homes were particularly captivated by the wide-plank European white oak floors in the great room and kitchen. The flooring provides a country-style contrast to the industrial lighting, which dots the home, including an impressive metal light fixture that brightens the dining area.
“It’s just something different,” she said. “I like to do stuff you don’t normally see.”
An abundance of natural light is available, too, with large windows in both the great room and dining room, and a transom window over the front door.
A linear fireplace in the great room is offset with shelving, which is backlit to showcase photos or other collectibles.
The main level of the open-floor plan includes more than 2,200 square feet, with just over 4,000-square-feet throughout the house. Because the home is finished from top to bottom, the new homeowners will need only to move in with their belongings.
An oversized kitchen features a hidden walk-in pantry and clean lines in the off-white cabinetry, with glass doors in the upper cabinets and unique glass subway tile backsplash, offering a modern flair to the room, along with a kitchen island that sports a quartz countertop.
Another unique element is found in the half-bath, which features a stone wall covering that gives the appearance of wood. A laundry room and drop zone, with custom-stained raw wood, continue the rustic theme of the home.
The master suite includes one of the most impressive features of the home: a sliding walnut door with a natural live edge dividing the bedroom from the large walk-in closet. A stunning chandelier provides light inside the closet, offering an elegant contrast to the rustic features, while a reading space is offset in the bedroom, with natural light streaming in from outside.
A transom window provides extra natural light in the master bath, which also features industrial lights in the mirror and a dual-head shower.
On the other side of the main level, two ample-sized bedrooms connect to the Jack-n-Jill bath. Doors in the bedroom and other interior rooms of the home are an attractive design with vertical lines and black hardware.
A custom railing in metal and wood leads to the finished lower level of the home, where another awe-inspiring feature can be found. The wet bar has distressed cabinets and an antiqued mirror, along with an island made from reclaimed barn wood with granite countertops and a distinctive foot rest constructed from metal piping, again reflecting the industrial elements of the home.
“That’s something that tied in really well here with the theme,” Kelly said. “I just wanted to show some more character – something different.”
That character continues with the lower level’s fireplace, featuring a sturdy mantel made from reclaimed wood and metal hardware. Two bedrooms and an exercise room also are finished in the lower level, with a bathroom highlighted by unique industrial lighting.
The home sits on a half-acre lot, with a stamped concrete patio that gives the appearance of wood planks, to carry the rustic theme outdoors. A vertical cable railing leads up to the covered deck, set up with speakers and TV-ready for outdoor entertainment under a protective roof.
