Anyone can throw a new rug in and paint some walls and call a home "updated". Not this baby!! This one has been completely remodeled from the floor up. New everything!!
First, let's start with the location. Located in desirable Normandy Park, this house is on the corner with Des Moines Memorial Drive for easy access to WA-509, 188th St., I-5, and more. Yet it is very quiet inside so you don't hear the traffic. The bus stop for #122 & 156 is across the street. The yard is surrounded by a beautiful, white fence and includes RV parking, a level, front lawn that is begging for a croquet set!, and plenty of off-street parking as well. Very low maintenance yard. Around the side of the house is a 2-story playhouse/fort with stairs as well as a storage shed in the back for the mower and gardening supplies.
Enter the stylish front door into the living room and notice immediately the freshly refinished ORIGINAL hardwood flooring. (None of that fake laminate here!) A built-in woodstove will help keep the home cozy and the heat bills low in the winter. Beyond the living room and through the pass through are glimpses of the exquisite kitchen -- private enough for guests but still allowing the cook to be part of the event.
The kitchen is equipped with all BRAND NEW stainless steel appliances. Be the first to use the refrigerator with water and ice, glasstop range with oven and dishwasher. All of the granite counters and real wood cabinetry are brand new, as is the vinyl floor. Check out the double, stainless steel sink with long neck faucet with pull-out sprayer. The kitchen has a breakfast bar, pantry, and just beyond are the washer/dryer hookups hidden behind a pair of 6-panel doors. The whole space is sparkling from the downlights and will give you the comfort and class you are looking for.
Between the kitchen and one-car garage is the dining room. And off of this room is a master bedroom with 1/2 bath. The master is about average size as bedrooms go, and has brand new Berber-like carpet. Walk down the hardwood floor in the hall past the coat closet to a full bath all -- you guessed it -- completely new!
There are three additional bedrooms -- 2 average size and 1 smaller. Each bedroom has the same, original hardwood floor in impeccable condition. The smaller bedroom would be great for an infant or as an office or craft room.
Other amenities: All new light and plumbing fixtures; brand new gas furnace; new cabinetry; elongated "comfort" toilet; upscale showerhead; 6-panel doors; cable/dish ready.
Terms: 12-month lease converts to month-to-month. $1,600 security deposit; $300 admin fee; $40/adult app fee. Last month's rent staged over 4 months to ease the burden. No smoking. No Sec. 8.
