About the property

Four bedroom, 2 bath, sleeps 9. Updated 1926 cottage in Historic Old Town.

Carefree and homey, comfortable cottage features a refinished lower level (bright daylight basement) with open, spacious great room in old golf resort style with wet bar, game table and large-screen TV perfect for hanging out. Two BR (four twins) 1 BA and laundry downstairs. Upstairs says 'you're home' when you first walk in. You'll find the kitchen functional with most cooking and dining equipment. Kitchen table seats 6. Upstairs is sunny and bright, cozy and carefree with cottage, homey appeal. One double and three twins up. Living room up also features TV. Little front porch begs, 'Sit and rest,' and yard offers a simple retreat to commune with nature. Aside from the obvious proximity to world class golf courses, Cole House is a block from Cannon Park and Camelot, a super cool kiddie playground, and walking trails that lead to other parks. Also walk to the best sports bar or pizza place in town. Village center with other restaurants, shopping and entertainment, and world class spa are all nearby as well, a 10 minute walk. Plenty of parking in front, side and rear. Cablevision, wireless internet, movies, books, cards, board games, poker chips. Built in 1926, updates are ongoing.

About Amy Griggs

Charley is an engineer/builder and Amy is a middle school teacher who both work full time in nearby Wake County. Creativity and craftsmanship are two things we like about remodeling. We always have a work in progress, and we love coming to Pinehurst.

Amy Griggs purchased this cottage in 2009

Why Amy Griggs chose Heartland

Cole House is so named because it is the family name of the original owners and only family before us to occupy this historic cottage. Four seasons a year, the Sandhills, and particularly Pinehurst, offer a garden-like setting, easy-living climate and an otherwise mysterious and inexplicable magnetism.

What makes this cottage unique

Charley recognized the good bones of this sturdy house and knew it'd be a great fixer-upper. It might be impossible to find another place in this price range that says 'no worries' like the Cole House does. Our goal was to have guests enter and feel like Cole House had been in their family forever -- timeless decor, simple comforts, and some of that mystery appeal. The location is convenient and yet feels "off the beaten path."

Cozy home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

The Cole House was perfect for our group of six golfers! Amy and Charlie made us feel very welcome, providing snacks, beer and wine when we arrived.

It is in a great location: less than a 20 minute walk to the Village, and every time we got in the van to go anywhere GPS said we had eight minutes to our destination.

The house--really, more of a cottage--is charming and, with the finished basement, it has more room inside than looks possible from the outside. The basement provided a comfortable place to gather, watch TV, or play cards. I think if we had wanted to cook our dinners, it might have been a challenge: The night we arrived, we picked up a couple pizzas and heated them at Cole at a time. We cooked bacon and eggs each morning without any trouble and ate out for dinner, so, as I said at the beginning, Cole House was perfect for us!

Amy & Charlie, thanks for your hospitality!

Owner's Response: So glad y'all were pleased. That little outdoor spot in the side yard is about as simple as it gets, but the main attraction is the great outdoors anyway. Don't you love fall in the pines!!!

Great for Golfers too

  • 5 of 5

This house is way bigger than expected. We were a group of 8 golfers and still had room. Don't let the pictures fool you. Plenty of room for all at the Cole House. Amy and her husband were great. So convenient to the resort and a short ride to all that the Pines has to offer.

Long Golf Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to Pinehurst for years but this is our first stay here. I can very easily say that this will be our lodging choice for all our future visits. We had a group of 7 but could have easily made it 8. There are plenty of beds and plenty of room. The house is clean, well kept and in a super convenient location. Amy was very prompt and friendly. Do not hesitate to stay here!
