Home Near UMKC (Kansas City MO) For Sale - $150,000

Do you know someone who wants to live near UMKC?  Or perhaps a parent who wants to invest in a home for student rental?  My new listing could be a good match!  Built in 1926, this home is located at 5831 Rockhill Road,  just south of the UMKC main campus, and also  close to Rockhurst University.  Priced right at $150,000--it could be a great investment.


This is a four bedroom, bungalow floorplan home.  There is a spacious living room and  dining room on the first floor, plus a kitchen and cozy breakfast room.  Two bedrooms and a full bath are on the main level.  The second floor has two more bedrooms and a half bath--which I think you could convert into a full bath by adding a shower.  Most all of the windows have been replaced, a new sewer line and furnace were recently installed, and all appliances stay including the refridgerator, washer and dryer. You will appreciate all the original archetectural details too:  crown molding, hardwood floors, subway tile in the bathroom, built-ins and a stone basement. Outside you’ll find a charming front porch, fenced yard in back with a patio and a private drive with enough space for 2+ vehicles.  


The location is great--close to UMKC, Rockhurst, Brookside, and the Country Club Plaza--plus the Metro Bus runs along Rockhill. Click over to my website for more photos or contact me for additional information.  5831 Rockhill Road, just north of 59th St on the east side of Rockhill.
