True Ranch has much to offer


Jan. 12, 2011

Looking for a cozy Ranch-style house with all the updates and amenities of new, but with the coziness of an older neighborhood? Look no further because here it is. In the heart of the Pendleton Heights neighborhood, 216 Olive is a stone’s throw from Historic Kessler Park and the Cliff Drive State Scenic Byway, Missouri’s only urban Scenic Byway.

Constructed entirely of weeping mortar brick in 1960, the home’s footprint is unique in that it actually sits sideways on the old-school narrow lot, rather than spanning the breadth of the lot like most suburban Ranch homes do.

The home features a large bay window in the living room, as well as a corner, wood-burning fireplace with gas assist for those cold winter evenings spent watching sports. Custom built, internally-lit glass curio cabinets separate the dining room and living room areas. The kitchen features a large, eat-in area, as well as new cabinetry, countertops and laminate flooring. Appliances include a newer gas range, side-by-side fridge and a built-in dishwasher. New wall-to-wall carpet has been laid over the hardwoods for added insulation and comfort.

The home also features three bedrooms on the main level and two bathrooms — one master and a three-quarters bath — off the master bedroom. Downstairs in the finished basement, there are two additional bedrooms, a wet bar and a third bath. The walkout door to the side and back patio makes for the perfect indoor-outdoor entertaining option.

Mechanically, the house is turnkey ready for the new owner. A new roof protects the entire investment. A lovely back patio and back yard make a perfect escape on a summer afternoon. Built-ins throughout the kitchen add extra convenience for storage, too.

If you’re a fan of Ranch style homes, this is not one to pass up. Listed at a modest $99,000 by Bill and Jim Lawless of Northeast Realty, this house won’t be on the market long. Call Northeast Realty at (816) 241-8442 to schedule an exclusive showing.
