MASON CITY, IOWA
This 6,000 square foot home is sited on an isthmus of land between the Winnebago River and an abandoned limestone quarry near Mason City, Iowa. The two-story structure rises out of the natural rock cliffs at the edge of the lake, nestled among aspen, oak, and ash trees that grow out of limestone beds. The main floor houses all living areas and the master suite, while the upper level contains guest quarters and a large room with views to the west of a tributary and waterfall that runs into the river. A two-story corridor runs the entire length of the home, beginning at the study and second floor bird watch on the west, and ending at a screened porch perched on an outcropping of rock at the east.
