My Notes

Gorgeous story and a half brick home in a charming neighborhood! Featured in the 2002 Des Moines Tour of Remodeled homes and has been well maintained and updated since. The home features a large living room with fireplace off the front entry that flows into the dining room (with hardwood floor) and kitchen. A beautiful bathroom and a den/bedroom complete the main level. The kitchen has beautiful cabinetry and a stainless steel backsplash behind the range. The hardwood stairs lead up to the second level with two spacious bedrooms and a large full bath. The back of the home offers great views of the beautifully landscaped rear yard from a three season room. The basement has 2 great living areas that are easily finished and one of them features a walkout double door to the brick paver patio, garden, and Koi pond. Other great amenities: recently remodeled baths, unique architectural features including built ins and archways, an oversized two car garage (28'x30'), close proximity to Gray's Lake and Water Works Park, and an easy commute to downtown.

    Foreclosures (per 10K)

    4.2 Gray's Lake
    7.3 Des Moines
    3.5 United States
    Zillow predicts Gray's Lake home values will increase 1.8% next year, compared to a 1.7% rise for Des Moines as a whole. Among Gray's Lake homes, this home is valued 67.7% more than the midpoint (median) home, and is valued 25.5% more per square foot.

    Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In Gray's Lake, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 11.2% higher than in Des Moines, and 88.6% higher than the national average. This higher local number may prevent Gray's Lake home values from rising as quickly as other regions in Des Moines.
