Welcome to Des Moines! Built in 1948 and featured in Better Homes and Garden, my home is a comfortable house in a lovely and quiet neighborhood. Spacious bedroom with queen bed and shared bath (with me). Centrally located, you'll be 10 minutes from downtown, 5 minutes to the airport, a mile to Waterworks Park and Grays Lake, and less than 20 minutes to everywhere else. Park safely in the driveway.
