Are you looking for a private space at a reasonable rate? Welcome to my home! This upstairs apartment is a converted attic in a duplex and is completely separate from the downstairs living space. There is parking for 2 cars and the stairs to the unit are just steps away from parking. Roughly 750 sq ft, freshly painted from the ceiling to baseboards, and new carpet in the last 6 months.
Valley Junction is such an eclectic area! Shopping, restaurants and a Thursday farmers market are all about 2 blocks away. The neighborhood itself is modest yet safe.
There is a bus stop just around the corner, but I've honestly never used the Des Moines public transit, so I don't have much insight on that. A car is definitely the easiest way to get around.
