See Inside the Biggest Private Home in Iowa [PHOTOS]
This is the biggest house I have ever seen... I mean, in pictures 'cuz they wouldn't let scruffy old me within 300 yards of it. If I could peak inside, it would be hard to decide where to start exploring.
Maybe one of the 8 bedrooms? I could check out one of the 15 bathrooms, of which I think a couple of these are the size of most nice homes' master bedrooms. Maybe I'll ride the elevator. Yes, the house has an elevator inside.
Maybe the movie theater? Or, I could visit the bar. Nooo, it's not a bar like a couple of stools and a basement bartop. It's a bar. A real bar.
The home has a full-size Irish bar. It's complete with a pool table, and stage set-up for live music. This home is truly one of a kind. And, it's officially the largest private residents in the state of Iowa according to Angi.
The home, named Peace Harbor, is located in Spirit Lake and sits right on beautiful West Okoboji. According to a Zillow listing (the home is not for sale), the mansion has 178 feet of the shoreline and 227 feet on the road and sits atop 1.25 acres. The house is so large, it has its own website dedicated to its history and press releases.
