Man Found a Magnificent Hidden Swimming Pool on a Property he Bought for Only $20k

35-year-old nurse John Reynolds had bought a dilapidated house previously owned by a hoarder for $20k. It was filled with junk, and the garden was like an overgrown jungle. He had planned to fix it up then sell it for profit.

One day, a torrential downpour hit his locality and washed away the debris in the backyard. And to his surprise, he found a massive swimming pool amid all the muck. He proceeded to clean it up, which took him 18 months and cost him $10k.

Because of this, the worth of the property has gone up but John changed his mind about putting it up for sale. He felt that he has won the lottery by stumbling across something so valuable. He was utterly surprised to see a swimming pool in his own property!
