Columbia County Bungalow + Pool, $167,500

  |  February 11, 2015

Farmhouses, contemporaries, raised ranches, and now we can add bungalows to our growing list of Beautiful Homes that Look Even Better with Pools. In the case of this charming Columbia County property, the pool area does more than just enhance the home’s good looks, it provides an additional setting for friends and family to gather once the weather warms up (and it will, it must). We’re picturing a summer fête that fits everyone’s UV threshold; the pro-summer glow crowd can mingle by the inground pool (assuming they’re applying a generous layer of sunscreen every two hours, at least), and the folks who go from pale to burn in sixty seconds or less can still enjoy the fresh air from underneath the picturesque patio. We’d love to give the bright and shiny kitchen appliances a workout preparing for this event. On that note, we’re intrigued by the previous owner’s reinvention of the work triangle. Did the fridge get put in time-out?
