Charming Des Moines home knocks $95,000 off asking price – But it’s still worth millions

November 27, 2023 by No Comments

Located on Grand Ave in Des Moines, this property was originally built in 1920. Here, it sports a typically British look with a combination of brick and beam work which is rarely seen on the outside of most US properties. This property also comes with plenty of land, including a 4.14 acre plot. This houses a 4,909 sqft property which has 5 bedrooms, and 6 bathrooms.

Listed on Zillow, this is currently available for $1,250,000 after recently taking $95,000 off the asking price. Perhaps rather telling, this has been listed for sale for nearly 300 days which may have influenced the decision to cut the price. As seen, it has magnificent woodwork, as well as heated floors and a number of other amenities.


It also includes an office, sunroom, walk-in closet, laundry room, attic space, and basement garage spaces. Despite being built in 1920, it has aged like a fine wine and mixes old with new to perfection. While it still keeps its original charm and character, it doesn’t look too dated or too modernized either.


If anything, this shows just how cheap luxury properties can sell for in Des Moines and Iowa. Although over a million, this sort of property and space could easily could triple or more elsewhere in the country.
