My Notes

Own this home and you will also own an amazing piece of Des Moines history. Built in 1931, this was one of the first homes in the western area of Des Moines, not to mention that it is on the National Register of Historic Places. Many of the original details remain including the dramatic carved stone entryway, decorative wrought iron window grills, four hand painted lunettes and an upstairs bathroom with hand painted murals. The main entry is an expansive hall, two stories tall with walnut beams across the ceiling and a Spanish Renaissance mantle of cut stone. The master suite on the main floor has a closet both in the bedroom and a wall of closet space in the bath. The kitchen has new Corian countertops, gas cook top and a wall mount oven and microwave. Additionally the main floor includes a breakfast nook, study, two sun rooms and a formal dining room. There is a wrought iron balcony connecting the two spacious, second floor bedrooms each with their own bath. The finished, walkout basement includes a family room, bedroom, full bath and access to the 2 car attached garage. The lot overlooks Waveland Golf Course and is well over half an acre. Relax in the north side sunroom overlooking the stunning backyard with brick patio. This home is so much more than a list of features. It is history. Welcome home!  More Less

Market guide

Zillow predicts 50311 home values will increase 1.8% next year, compared to a 2.4% rise for Des Moines as a whole. Among 50311 homes, this home is valued 255.7% more than the midpoint (median) home, and is valued 61.1% more per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In the 50311 market, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold decreased 3.9% in the last year. The number of unsold foreclosures is 5.7% greater than in Des Moines, and 58.4% higher than the national average. This higher local number may prevent 50311 home values from rising as quickly as other regions in Des Moines.
