Property Description

You'll be amazed by the open spaces, craftsmanship and overall quality found throughout this fabulous 4-bedroom, 3 1/2 bath home in a highly sought-after South of Grand location! This private woodland get-away is just minutes from downtown Des Moines and it's offered at a price below appraised value. This stately brick walk-out 2-story sits atop a gentle rise that's surrounded with mature trees, multiple patio spaces, and woodland landscaping. Today's main entrance to this fabulous home brings you into a grand entry foyer that takes you up to the main living level. Our description begins in the formal living room with its unusual vaulted ceiling, extra tall windows providing amazing views of the city, a gas fireplace and a lovely open staircase to the upper level. These all combine to make you say WOW! The living room is open to the sunny dining room, with beautiful hardwood floors, and the hand carved woodwork that can be found throughout many areas of the home. It flows into the perfect kitchen, and an awe-inspiring great room that flow together as one. The oversized kitchen is perfect for entertaining! It boasts ample cupboard and counter space with custom soft-close Omega cabinetry, stunning granite countertops, and a unique tiled backsplash. A solid hammered copper farmhouse sink leads around to a convenient peninsula-style breakfast bar, with another copper bar sink and beverage/wine cooler. The kitchen is open to the vaulted family/great room, anchored by a floor-to-ceiling gas fireplace, flanked with custom solid cherry built-ins, display areas and floor-to-ceiling library style bookshelves. The great room extends around into a second private loft seating area, with skylights and a wall of windows, bathing the room in sunlight and overlooking the entry foyer. This area is also vaulted and is the perfect size for a billiard table! Off this family/great room you'll find a Trex-built screened porch and patio area. The master bedroom suite is on the main floor and includes an en-suite bathroom with a step-in shower. The upper level of the home includes 2 bedrooms and a perfectly appointed full bath with tub/shower combination. There is even more great space on the lower level! You'll find a large recreation room with a gas fireplace and more large windows, and a bedroom with an en-suite full bathroom. The laundry is also on this level. The home includes 3 garages, a large finished storeroom (14' x 14') and a large cedar closet. There is a built-in 14'+ workbench with cabinetry between the garages. All windows are Pella brand with roll screens, and the 10-year-old premium roof comes with a 40-year guarantee. There are dual furnaces and A/C units for maximum comfort and efficiency. The exterior landscaping is an oasis, with 3+ heritage oak trees, an irrigation system for the sloped front lawn, and many smaller trees, shrubs and perennial plantings for multi-season enjoyment. This home is in the heart of a friendly and engaging neighborhood with lots of green space and easy access to bike trails, parks and downtown Des Moines. Don't miss your chance to own this spectacular home with a total of nearly 3,800 square feet of must-have living space.
