121 to 135 S. Ross Street, Auburn, AL 36830
The Columns have a unique place in our line-up. Originally, we bought these 3 duplexes so that we could tear them down and build some new condos on this same property. When the economy started to turn for the worse in 2008, we figured we should make some improvements, and hold on to them. Because most of the units have ceramic tile, and are almost indestructible, they were the first units we offered as pet friendly, and a very roomy option for folks that don’t want a roommate, but want more space than a typical 1 bedroom. The location of The Columns is definitely close enough to walk to campus or the Downtown Auburn shops and restaurants. They are actually located right next to the Walker’s Point Condos on one side, and Park Hill on the other side.
Once we decided to keep these units and not tear them down, we started to notice there were some solid bones, and some character to the old places. We have updated the kitchen cabinets and added a dishwasher and garbage disposal in 2 of the 4 units. Cabinet space is limited, but there is a very large walk-in pantry for kitchen storage. At some time in the last 20 years or so, a full-size stack washer and dryer was added to each kitchen for added convenience. Despite being from the 1940’s, each bedroom has a mini-walk-in closet, and many of the bedrooms have an operable transom above the door to provide some ventilation white retaining the privacy of a closed bedroom door. The bathrooms are somewhat out of date, but they do have the classic look of black and white tile on the walls and floors. Two of the units have carpet in the living room and the bedrooms, but as of now, 4 of the 6 units have ceramic tile throughout.
In these 6 units, more than half of the tenants are typically graduate students, with the remainder being local professionals or undergrads. The units are older than our others, but rock solid, will provide a different experience than an apartment or mass-produced duplex neighborhood. The Columns is one our larger “pet friendly” place, and our pet deposits are probably the lowest in town. We don’t often have more than one or two come open in any given year, and as with our other properties, tenants usually stay until they leave Auburn. If you need a pet-friendly place, or just want a little more elbow room, please call us about The Columns.
