Tom and Linda Fuller treasure their home at 875 South 14th Street and love their hometown. The Fullers previously lived on Sundance Circle for 17 years.
Linda says “we loved that house and the neighborhood, but were thinking about building when this house was placed on the market.” “I had always admired this place, so I made an appointment to look at the house.” “I walked into the foyer, stopped, and said to the realtor get me out of here because it needs major work and I LOVE IT.”
She told Tom not to even look at the house but he did and the rest is happy history. It was apparent that work was needed to bring the house up to the standard that they wanted but the equilivant to the large lot, view and location were not to be found anywhere else in Adel. Tom and Linda purchased the 12 room house and with extensive work it is now restored to a new house with a scenic backyard surrounded by a white vinyl fence.
The walk out ranch floor plan is extremely spacious, very distinct and provides accessible living. The dining room that easily accommodates the entire family for festive occasions is separate from the living area, kitchen and additional eating area. Entering the house the area is highlighted by expansive windows that provide an exterior focal point. Because of the elevation of the lot the view is beautiful—-you can see forever. The kitchen is now a cook’s paradise with maple cabinetry, top of the line appliances and quartz countertops. All the carpet is new, the hardwood flooring has been refinished, the interior and exterior doors and trim were replaced, the bathrooms reworked and the entire house has been painted.
Tom and Linda were both born and raised in Adel and are well known for their commitment and service to the community. For years they have owned and operated Fullers BP Gas Station and Convenience Store as well as serving a large geographic area as bulk fuel distributors. The Fullers have two daughters and four grandchildren. Daughter Lindsey Fuller Grife owns the Let’s Dance Studio and daughter Megan Fuller Rowe teaches in DeSoto. The Fullers are active members of Faith Lutheran Church.
