October 15, 2021

The pool was a surprise! This is an estate sale and the home is in need of some TLC. This house was built in 1942. It is located on 8.28 acres in Columbus, North Carolina in the foothills of the mountains. This stone cottage has a spacious kitchen and an enclosed back porch. Would love to see what is underneath the carpeting. Definitely needs some updating. There is an inground pool on the property, as well as a detached two car garage and a large workshop. The property looks very private! Three bedrooms, two bathrooms and 1,700 square feet. $299,000
