This home base of the old, famous Mooney's Auction House for decades, is now available for sale. The 8,500 sq. ft. historic building, originally a general store and a hotel, has been extensively altered and improved over the years and has become a flexible, functional space that lands itself well to many potential commercial/residential scenarios. Scenario 1: a retail store on the ground level, a multi-shop Co-op on the second, while the third floor's large, voluminous loft and 4 additional rooms would make a great, spacious living space. The ground floor already has a commercial kitchen, a walk-in freezer and two bathrooms. Use that part to run a food establishment and use the other half for a different-type of business with a B&B upstairs, while living in the top floor. A full, dry, clean basement with 8' ceiling height is very useable. With huge parking area, exposure and accessibility it's easier to make your business successful here.
