700 Walnut Street Washington MO

2 bedroom, 1 bath, Offered at $110,000

A nostalgic WashMo bungalow built in 1949. This home sits on a large level lot in the heart of Washington.

The home has 2 bedrooms, living room, kitchen and bathroom on the main level.  The kitchen walks out to a nice backyard and a small patio. 

The small bedroom/dining room or whatever room has french doors that lead to a patio.  It would be great to add a deck or a patio though.  The yard is level and big enough to have a touch football game or a soccer game but you would need to dodge a few trees.

The lower level is partially finished and has been used by the family as a family room. It has a family room and a wetbar.

LOCATION

The city of Washington, Missouri, is situated on the Missouri River in Franklin County. It has a population of close to 14000 according to statistics from 2019. Washington is a town where most residents own their homes and is considered to be conservative. The schools are rated above average.

It has a nice little park, Riverfront Park, and boat docks on the riverfront. I lived in Washington when I was a teenager. Our family owned a home on Front Street that was built by slaves, had slave quarters and was rumored to be part of the underground railroad. We loved the location. We could walk to school and the main street of Washington. We loved the noise of the trains as they rumbled right by the house. The home is now offices. (By the way, it was a fluke that the Missouri River was this blue when I took this picture.)

Washington Missouri is famous for its Corn Cob Pipe Factory. The factory is still operational and now has a museum. WashMo is also well-known for its Town and Country Fair. The fair is highly anticipated by the locals and also former Washingtonians. I think the Tractor Pull is a big attraction. Also popular is the livestock competition and auction.

Washington has plenty of family things to do. This list of parks gives a bit of what they offer. When I lived there we spent many a Sunday walking around Lions Lake. WashMo has events throughout the year on its historic Main street.
