This historic building started life in 1911 as the local Grange Hall and, for the past 43 years, has encompassed an antiques consignment mall known as the "Bittersweet Shop" - with leased exhibit/retail spaces for 16 dealers - plus a charming 550 s.f. one-bedroom apartment. The 3,300 s.f. two-story retail space offers 10' ceilings and an open floor plan, with a separate office, storage rooms, half bath and lower level workshop space/laundry. The private apartment is accessed from either within the building or via a separate entrance and serves as the home of the building's long-time owner. Another prime rental opportunity, the apartment offers parquet flooring, custom built-ins and French doors leading to a 30' x 10' Trex deck that overlooks the backyard and the Housatonic River and valley beyond - an area owned by C, L & P that can never be developed. Bring your imagination: the building could continue as an antiques mall or other type of retail establishment or could be repurposed as an artist studio/gallery, small in-home business or single family home. In its first 66 years as the Grange Hall, the building was the prime local venue for banquets, shows, dances and served as a meeting hall for all local happenings. The building's location on Route 7 is on a stretch through the Litchfield Hills named by "National Geographic Traveler" as one of the most scenic driving destinations in the country. This is a unique investment opportunity in the heart of historic Gaylordsville!
