As the story goes, the history of this house is as follows: Colonel Poole (ret), and past Raeford Mayor, built this house for his family from a sketch his wife did on the back of a napkin for the architect based off of the house she grew up in. The original blueprints are framed in the dining room and will convey with the house. The Colonel raised his four children here and one of the sons raised his four children here after his parents passed. The Current owners are the second family to have owned this home. This truly is a restored piece of Raeford history. If your heart sings for a house with charm and character - this is it. There really are too many upgrades and special features to mention.
