Description

PRICED TO SELL! BELOW APPRAISED VALUE! You're going to fall in love with everything about this fantastic 2 and possibly 3 bedroom story-and-a-half home in the much sought-after BEAVERDALE AREA. You'll be just minutes away from the Beaverdale shopping and dining district. The curb appeal is eye-catching as you approach in a friendly well-established neighborhood with lots of mature trees. You'll greet your guests on a covered front porch and when they step inside they'll discover the home's unique character that's coupled with modern updates. You'll greet your guests in an entry foyer where they'll immediately notice the fabulous hardwood floors that have been protected by carpet for many years and now have been totally re-finished to perfection. The floors are a stunning feature that runs throughout the living room and most of the main level. The living room is huge and features a cathedral ceiling and large windows that provide lots of sunlight and add to the feeling of openness. You'll love the beautiful wood paneling and custom-built floor-to-ceiling cabinets and bookshelves that fill an entire wall. The living room is open to a marvelous dining room that features leaded glass windows that are original to the home. All other windows have been replaced with new Anderson Windows. The combination of the hardwood floors, the amazing windows, and the white wainscoting make this a fabulous place to gather with friends and family. The adjoining kitchen has also been fully updated. It has more than ample cupboard and counter space and the appliances are included. An exit from the kitchen takes you to a covered patio that also serves as a breezeway to the 2-car garage, providing great cover during inclement weather. Back inside, there are 2 main floor bedrooms, both with hardwood floors. The closets in the master bedroom include built-in drawers and shoe shelves. The main level also features a full bath with a tub/shower combination. The level also includes a good-sized laundry room. The upper level of the home includes a large bonus area that's ripe for renovation and could be transformed into a 3rd bedroom, a play area for the kids, or whatever you desire. The lower level is unfinished and would be great for a workshop, your work-out gear, plenty of storage space, and more. The entire interior of the home has fresh paint, the steel siding has a lifetime warranty and the roof is just 13 years old. This home is within walking distance to Snookie's Ice Cream shop, it's a short drive to Drake University, downtown Des Moines and so much more. The current owners enjoyed it for more than 40 years. Now it's your turn! Don't wait to call the homeowner directly at (515) 238-6664 to learn more and to schedule a showing. AGENT OFFERS ARE WELCOME!
