Most Expensive Listing: A look inside

Posted: Updated:

Finding the perfect place to live can be a struggle.

Whether you're looking for a home with character or trying to find a place that fits your lifestyle, it ultimately comes down to price for most people.

4544 William Drive in Waterloo is the most expensive listing in the Cedar Valley.

With a $1.69 million price tag, Real Estate Broker Amy Wienands says it's worth every penny.

"This house can be bought today at a price you can't build it for. You own the three acres behind you. So, you have a really an awesome, amazing spot. It feels like you're living in a retreat home. This is a vacation home, tucked in the heart of the Cedar Valley," Wienands said.

The features in this home are truly endless.

From the stainless steel appliances to the hidden pantry right off the kitchen, Wienands says this home can accommodate anyone's needs.

"But, when you walk through it everything is quality, from the moldings to the fixtures. It's over the top in every sense, and yet today if you went to build it, it would cost more than what he has into it," Wienands said.

It's been on the market for a couple months, and Wienands said this 6-year-old, more than 7,000 sq-ft, one-owner home is custom-designed for entertaining and relaxing.

"It is literally built as a lifestyle, that I work hard, I want to play hard, and I want to play at home. That's how it's built," Wienands said.

For those with a taste for wine and workouts, there's a walk-in wine cellar and golf simulator.

There's even a theater room, weight room, and basketball court.

"It's literally built for the family that wants to really enjoy their home. So, they can work hard, they can play hard, and all be right here," Wienands said.

At this price, Wienands said many people are looking to build, but she says it's cheaper to buy.

"You can buy it today for less money than you can go build it. There's a lot of headaches that come with building brand new, especially with this kind of custom build. This custom build took over two years to build it," Wienands said.

Even with the hefty price tag, Wienands said she's confident it'll sell.

"The Cedar Valley actually has a lot of money in it.  It's whether they want to invest their dollars in this market at this price point, or they want to build their own," Wienands said.

Wienands says she's had a lot of out-of-town interest in the home, but it's still on the market.
