3848 River Oaks Dr., Des Moines
An unusual, “ultra contemporary” luxurious home has been outlined for sale in the Salisbury Oaks neighborhood of Des Moines, hoping to attract likely homebuyers who are looking for a non-traditional room and can also pay for its $2.5 million asking value.
Built from scratch with a present day aesthetic by Kris McVicker of Marc Kris Modern-day Residences, the 3,855-square-foot home includes 4 bedrooms, five bogs, a few family rooms and a 4-car garage.
Situated south of Grand Ave., the .48-acre whole lot sits on the far south edge of the district and was purposely developed to choose comprehensive benefit of its southern-dealing with sights.
Stephanie Thomas of RE/MAX Concepts is symbolizing the vendor and reveals McVicker selected not to put in window coverings in the main dwelling areas. “She didn’t want to break up the wall of glass, and distract from the seasons, the trees, the woods and the river,” she explained.
The house seems down on to the horse stables of Irish Run Farms, plus bicycle and walking trails, and the Raccoon River, views that can be savored from inside or on the outdoor patio.
In spite of the modern-day layout and hanging white colour plan, Thomas states possible consumers have described the interior atmosphere as “spa-like,” and “calm and tranquil,” she explained.
Thomas stated McVicker didn’t make the dwelling with “one kind of family members in brain,” but the open format makes a lot of alternatives for an owner who likes to entertain visitors. A common question amongst modern people has been if the household furniture and artwork are element of the seven-figure asking cost.
“She would consider leaving, or providing the furnishings, if the consumer requests it,” Thomas explained, which include a piano that resides on the mezzanine level.
To harmony the neutral colour palate, the interior has been decorated with floral tapestries, vibrant wallpapers and “chandeliers which are amazing and pretty much far more like sculptures to me,” Thomas reported.
From 1947 until 2019, a one-loved ones ranch dwelling occupied the lot. McVicker bought the residence, razed the property and made a new landscape, developing a distinctive distinction to other residences alongside River Oak Travel.
“Even while South of Grand is primarily classic houses, it is also loaded with lots of special households of plenty of distinctive ages. And just since it truly is an established neighborhood doesn’t imply that the people today in all those neighborhoods will not enjoy unique households,” Thomas claimed.
The assets is mentioned at $2,500,000 by Stephanie Thomas of RE/MAX Ideas. Call (515) 771-7788 to tour this house or equivalent properties.
