This house at 1120 31st Street in Des Moines will be going on the market soon, probably in January… It’s a beautiful craftsman. Beautiful unpainted woodwork on both levels, an open staircase with panelling, colonnades between living/dining rooms, non-working fireplace with built in bookcase, a built-in buffet in the dining room. It has 3 bedrooms 1 bath. It appears to be structurally sound. The downside – not a good location – half a block south of University on 31st street, no garage, some window panes broken, needs thorough cleaning and painting, some plaster damage to the kitchen ceiling and stairwell, but otherwise the plaster is in great shape. There appear to be some wiring issues. However, I’m sure the price will be fairly low as the owners are tired of renting it out and want to sell it quickly – possibly to one of those “cash-for-houses” places.
