About Prairie Pointe of Pella
Prairie Pointe’s origins started over lunch with a lifelong friend. Pondering what I would do with my time after retiring from education, I was dreaming of what I could create with my skill set and hobbies. She brainstormed alongside me and the seed was planted.
My contractor husband was totally on board. We spent a year and a half looking for the property that fit our needs and had a great location. Unexpectedly we were shown 719 Broadway, just off the square in beautiful Pella. The house built in 1900 was home to a family doctor which included his medical practice. After many years as a residential property, the house most recently was a Children’s Consignment Store.
The Broadway house was purchased in the summer of 2020. After stripping the plaster and siding down to the exterior walls, rebuilding started. We have many details in the house that resemble how the original house might have looked in 1900 but gave it a modern twist. Three unique bedrooms have a Dutch theme and decor to welcome you to our community. A detail you might note is the intricate door used as a decor piece. It was the door originally on the south side of the house entering into the waiting room for the doctor, Dr. Payne. The garage has a work space for quilters and crafters.
You are a short stroll to our local quilt store along with museums, shopping, and restaurants. We hope you will enjoy the house with friends to create and dream.
