Property Description

You're going to love this charming story-and-a-half 3-bedroom home in an unbeatable location on the far West side of Des Moines. The curb appeal is great with a brick facade and lots of mature trees in the yard. When you step inside you'll immediately notice the fabulous hardwood floors that run throughout the main level with exception of the kitchen and bathroom. The living room is extra spacious and has lots of windows to bathe the area in natural sunlight. It flows into the dining area that includes a built-in corner hutch. The dining room gives you access to a marvelous kitchen with more than ample cupboard and counter space. You'll love the subway tiled backsplash that looks great with the beautiful countertops and soft-close cabinetry. The stainless kitchen appliances are included. The kitchen has a hinged door exit to a marvelous backyard with a huge paving brick patio that's covered. It's perfect for grilling and outdoor entertaining. There's a privacy fence and you'll appreciate all the mature trees providing fantastic shade in the summer. Back inside, there are 2 nice-sized bedrooms on the main floor, both with the hardwood floors. The full bathroom has been nicely updated with a pedestal sink, a tub/shower combination and wainscoting on the walls. On the upper level, you'll discover a huge bedroom or possible play area for the kids. It includes 2 dormer-style windows and has lots of personality! The laundry is on the unfinished lower level and the washer and dryer stay with the home. There's lots of potential for the addition of a family room or whatever you may desire. Outside the home, you'll find an oversized single car garage. This location is near the intersection of Merle Hay Road and University Avenue providing fast access to Windsor Heights, Hy-Vee, Interstate 235, and a multitude of shopping and dining options.
