Description

Your opportunity to own a piece of Des Moines history. Welcome to the double house. The first mention of a double house in the Iowa State Register was on August 21, 1877. The article was aptly titled "Handsome Houses". A century ago double houses were mainly constructed by prominent individuals as their primary residence, renting the other residence for additional income. Des Moines has approximately 88 of such homes; 618-620 16th Street being one of the first. Originally built near street-car lines, location today is just as prime. Sitting catty-cornered from the Hoyt Sherman grounds, live music is literally at your doorstep. Blocks to breweries, festivals, the Avenues of Ingersoll + Grand and the sculpture garden. Stepping inside you'll immediately feel the rooms telling a story in the rich woodwork, amazing natural light, skylights, character + grand design. Each side has 3 bedrooms, 3 baths, front + rear porches, numerous updates and a delightful side yard with gazebo. Offered at $850,000.
