Owner asking $14.9 million for northwest Iowa home

WEST OKOBOJI LAKE, Iowa (AP) — Iowans looking for a little extra space might want to consider a nearly 25,000 square foot home for sale at West Okoboji Lake in northwest Iowa.

The lakefront home includes nine bedrooms, 16 bathrooms and a full-size Irish pub, but it won’t come cheap.

The Des Moines Register reports (http://dmreg.co/1jvJe4t)Businessman Tom Bedell is asking $14.9 million for the lakefront mansion.

Bedell earned his fortune by expanding his father’s fishing tackle business into an international company, which he sold in 2007 for $400 million. He now owns a guitar company based in Oregon.

Bedell’s home is assessed at $12.4 million.

To put its value in context, the most expensive Des Moines area home for sale is a 9,000-square-foot home in Urbandale listed for $4.9 million.
