              The house is located in Waukee which is a suburb of Des Moines. You can reach the majority of Des Moines within 15 minutes. The Jordan Creek Town Center is about 4 miles away from the house. This area includes a number of unique shops and restaurants. Downtown Des Moines is about a 10-15 minute drive. Within walking distance of the house is Jethro's BBQ which has won a number of national awards and has been seen on Man vs Food!

              Year Purchased: 2012

              Why the Owner Chose Des Moines:
              I chose this property because it is in a area of Des Moines that has experienced great growth over the past few years. The property is located near some of Des Moines newest restuarants, bars, and shopping areas yet close enough to downtown.
