I remember when Julie and I bought our house years ago, the realtor said "It's all about location." He was right. Our part of Cedar Rapids has exploded with economic activity since we moved in and we're two minutes from the interstate. We love where we are. However, the perfect place for one couple is the direct opposite of what some people are looking for.

The above home, the most-expensive one currently on sale in the corridor, is just the opposite of where we live. This time, the location is all about tranquility in a sought after location, next to Coralville Lake.

Up a private drive, nearly hidden from the world, is a 5-bedroom, 6-bath home with nearly 9,500 square feet of floor space, bordered by a 60-acre property.

The property also has a massive, heated shop that's over 4,800 square feet, complete with 12-foot doors to get any massive toy you may need inside and out of the elements. There's also a private pond, according to the listing on Zillow.

In addition to the five bedrooms and six baths, the home has maple floors, a chef's kitchen with cherry cabinets, a wrap-around deck, a master suite, and a gorgeous pool/hot tub room that's lined with cedar.

The home is located at 2101 Scales Bend Road NE in North Liberty. It's currently on sale for $4 million. The listing agent is Jerad Ruth of Skogman Realty. Take a look around below.
