Owner info

Year Purchased: 1988

About the owner: I have lived in Columbus since 1986. My wife, Rabiab, and I love the area and never plan to move. We have four sons, all grown, and three married. We also have five grandchildren. I am retired from the Air Force and now teach technology classes at MUW. Rabiab is retired from United Technologies and now keeps up with our rental homes.

Why the Owner Chose Columbus:
The vacation rental was our home, but we bought and moved into the house of one of our sons in 2010. The move was partially because our son had to leave and houses were not selling well. Also, his house was smaller and we were ready to downsize. Turning our former home into a vacation rental then became a logical choice since we did not want to sell it.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love the peaceful, country setting and spacious yard with private, in-ground pool. We occasionally see deer in our backyard on the hill near the gazebo. The sunroom and large downstairs den are, arguably the two favorite rooms in the house. The convenient location is another plus. Downtown is only 3 miles away.
