215 S 38th Street is a 1600 square foot ranch with no basement. It has 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and backs to the Creekside Elementary school property.

This property was listed on 09/02/2016 for $640,000, went under contract on 09/09/2016 and sold for $629,000 on 10/14/2016.

Originally the house had 1100 or 1200 square feet. There was later another 400 square feet added on the back of the house. The exterior wall of the addition is lined with windows that let the light and the views pour in.

Backing to the elementary school has its pros and cons. The school provides an open feeling with mountain views but there will also be a fair amount of foot traffic from passerby. A brand new school is being built behind the existing one, which will be torn down in 2017. This will be a year of construction but when that is finished this house will be backing to a state of the art elementary school with new fields and playgrounds. Some of the mountain views will be affected but I feel that the pros will outweigh the cons. 

The house is in decent condition. Very livable and there is also a wealth of opportunity to remodel with your personal touch.

At $629,000 this buyer got an excellent property at a good price. This was a rare opportunity to own a lot backing to a park in the quiet heart of the Martin Acres Neighborhood.
