Residential Living

Young professionals, families and retirees alike have all found a place to call home in Marshalltown. The wide array of housing selections and price ranges is impressive in the area and guarantees that no matter where you are in life, you will find the home that suits you best.

Residential development in early Marshalltown history was centralized in the northwestern portion of town, convenient to the Iowa River. Today, these historic residences, represented by Tudor, Victorian and traditional-style homes, highlight Marshalltown’s past. The Willard Mansion and the Binford House, for example, are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Promoting the preservation of Marshalltown’s bygone era, the Historical Society offers the possibility of grants for those interested in historic home restoration.

Real Estate

Contemporary neighborhoods, featuring high quality single-family dwellings, boast tree-lined avenues, active support programs such as Neighborhood Watch and centralized locations near elementary schools, retail centers and recreation sites—making these residential areas ideal for families. Some of the area’s subdivisions include Cross Country Estates and South Pointe, which offer a variety of single-family residences, with a few villas available as well. Further options include spacious town homes, modern condominium and apartment complexes and downtown lots available for possible residential expansion.

The growing senior population of Marshalltown also has ample residential living options. For those in search of accommodations in an independent living environment, the Embers is a wonderful option. This 108-apartment, active adult community offers carefree living with the choice of eight floor plans. Supplementing the well-equipped apartments are a number of on-site amenities, including: an indoor pool, fitness center, coffee shop, home theater and courtyard putting greens. Additionally, the Village Cooperative offers independent living options for active seniors (55 years and up). With a number floor plans, the Village Cooperative is an alternative for individuals wanting the freedom of independent living without the hassle of yard care.

For a little extra assistance, Glenwood Place is ideal. This retirement community offers outstanding assisted living and memory care services for its residents, and recently opened independent living town homes on-site as well. Glenwood Place’s dedication to excellence in care has resulted in various awards over the years.

Additional housing options are available for every stage of life.
