    1890 was the build date given but it’s possible this is just slightly older than that.

    I think Kelly is right about the build date, it might even be antebellum (pre-Civil War, for all the realtors out there 😉 ) The first thing I would do would be to find some period mantels for those fireplaces; other than new wallpaper and some updates to the kitchen and baths, it looks good to me. Very light and airy, I love those floor-level windows!

      I figured the porch was embellished (or even mostly added) around that date, as well as the sun room being more modern, but the house as a whole felt older to me.

      —Hijack—Mike, where is the house in your profile pic?

        Gypsy, I am almost certain that house is Rosemont, in Greene County, Alabama, one of the greatest of the many fine black belt homes. Since you are so obviously well-informed about the Columbus houses, I am wondering if you might be from Oktibbeha County, Mississippi, and if so, you are almost certainly my relative, and I would love to correspond with you. I think you would like my house, it is 1840 and very much like a Columbus eclectic house.

          I AM from the area….relatives all around that I keep discovering as I explore my genealogy.

          My email is trouble at cableone dot net. Look forward to hearing from you.

      Mantles are a must…. a little wallpaper removal, and I’m set. I love this house, the curb appeal is huge!

    This is one beautiful home and yard. The kitchen is nice and large and light. The sun room is so light. Seems to an open, friendly feel. I love its great porch and the Spanish Moss is the thing that sold it to me. 🙂

    I wonder what is under that ratty carpet upstairs? I hope more hardwood! I’d replace those newer mantels too.

    I agree about the kitchen AND the Spanish moss. I grew up in central Florida, back when all the oaks were draped with Spanish moss, and over the years, as the state of Florida has been paved, and lots of the old oaks lost to storms and development, only a few trees have moss these days, and nothing says southern to me like stately, moss-draped oaks. I have never understood why people actively remove it. It’s beautiful stuff and provides homes to lots of creatures. My first thought when I saw the kitchen was that in my mind’s eye, I could see a big farmhouse table in there, with lots of baking going on…
    This house is another beautiful bargain, and I hope she finds a loving new guardian. I would change almost nothing about her, except maybe some paint and such

      I really like that you used the word “guardian”. A lot of these homes need just that.

        I believe that animals, homes and other fragile things need guardians… no one owns that kind of thing, we just have the honor and privilege of caring for them.

    It’s a shame about the mantels. Other than that I love this place. And a pool to boot. I always wanted a pool but they can be tricky to incorporate into a historic property.

    It looks like that sunroom might be an addition?? In the photo looking back towards the kitchen there seems to be a couple inches height difference in the floors and the ceiling is textured, where all the other rooms are very smooth. It’s a really cute house in any case.

    Why don’t these adorable homes come with lots of acreage?
