My Notes

Location - Location - Location!
Location of this property is excellent. It is 8-9 blocks from the Fellows Elementary and Ames High. Schools are within walking distance with no major streets to cross.

This house is centrally located in Ames, close to the Iowa Department of Transportation, Iowa State University campus, and other large employers. This home is sizeable enough for most families and has room in the dry basement for a woodworking shop (previous use), man cave, game room, craft or family room. Lots of options and space!
