Rent a historical Victorian dream home! We recently put nearly $300,000 in rehab/restoration expenses into this beautiful turn-of-the-century Sears Victorian farmhouse. Both a massive enclosed front porch and generous enclosed back porch (featuring the original Frigidaire ice box!) surround the house. First floor opens to living room with pocket doors, formal parlor with fireplace, office, half bath, formal dining room with built-ins, kitchen, and butler?s pantry. Take the grand staircase, or servant?s stairs, to the second floor with built-ins, three bedrooms, master bedroom, storage closet, and oversized custom-marble bathroom with Victorian clawfoot tub. Escalate to attic, which opens to a nearly 1,500 s.f. master suite with gorgeous leaded and stained glass windows, as well as a huge custom-marble bathroom with Victorian clawfoot tub. Enjoy intricate patterned hardwood floors throughout the house, oil rubbed bronze finishes and high-end black stainless LG appliances. Basement has laundry facilities and tons of storage space. This gorgeous family home is located within walking distance of the bike path/hub at the edge of this western Des Moines suburb. The property itself is stunning, with a fenced-in back yard, a storm shelter, two detached garages, and a glow-in-the-dark driveway. Too many updates to list! Immediate possession available! Call to see for yourself!
