Description

Ignite your passion with this classic Prairie-style two-story residence located South of Grand. This gleaming house on a hill, built in 1912, was known as the "Dewey House in publications & has been lovingly restored to its original beauty. Throughout the 2,459 SF of this 4BR/2BA home, the timeless style of architecture was maintained. The main level includes a large living room, formal dining, an updated kitchen, family room, & bath. The custom kitchen features full-height Shaker cabinets, granite counters, & SS appliances. Youll love the central stairwell library, stone fireplace, window seats, built-ins, & double French doors which lead to an impressive front patio. Natural light fills the family room which includes a vaulted ceiling, brick accents, & a charming balcony. Upstairs, a hallway connects to 4 bedrooms & a full bathroom. Hardwood oak floors & wide trim run throughout & each room has expansive windows. Downstairs, the waterproofed basement offers tons of potential with tall ceilings, daylight windows, laundry, & bathroom stub-in. The 2-car garage is tandem-style with entry from a quiet street. Renovations include replacement of the foundation, HVAC system, plaster to drywall, & whole-house wiring/insulation/plumbing. The exterior is low-maintenance stucco. Mature trees & stately homes will be your views plus Greenwood Park, the Des Moines Art Center, & Salisbury House are all within walking distance. Unique Airbnb opportunity!
