Property Description

If you're looking for a "project home", this 2-bedroom, 2-story fixer-upper in a great south Des Moines neighborhood may be the one for you. You'll work directly with the homeowner to achieve great savings. The home is in a very convenient location and has excellent curb appeal. You'll greet your guests in a huge carpeted living room that can be configured to include a formal dining area, both with extra high ceilings. The kitchen features vinyl floors, laminate counters and kitchen appliances are included. There's a casual dining area/porch with an exit to a concrete patio that's perfect for grilling and outdoor entertaining. The patio overlooks the extra-large backyard with mature trees and a utility shed. You can also access the oversized 2-car detached garage from the patio. Back inside, the carpeted master bedroom is located on the main level and features an en-suite half bath. There's also a full bath in the hallway outside the master bedroom. On the upper level, you'll have the potential for 2 non-conforming bedrooms. The largest bedroom on the upper level includes its own wall air conditioning unit. The unfinished lower level of the home includes the laundry hook-ups and provides room for future expansion. The washer and dryer are included. Exterior features include a storage shed and large corner perennial garden featuring many daylilies, flowering hibiscus tree, and clematis. There are also a variety of grasses to provide a natural privacy fence. This yard is very bird-friendly and hummingbirds typically visit. There are daylilies established on the north side of the garage and large hostas on the East side of the garage. There is an everblooming lilac bush on the driveway side underneath the bedroom window. This home is just 1 block south of Lincoln High School, a block from SW 9th and in easy walking distance to Paesano's Pizza, Taco Johns and Henry J's. It's close to Park Avenue Elementary School and a bus stop at bottom of the hill from the house on SW 9th. Access to downtown Des Moines is a breeze. You can take a closer look by contacting the homeowner direct. Call today to schedule a showing.
