On the Market: Home For Sale Is a 1960s Colorado Grocery Store
For $800,000, you can buy an entire grocery store, which is kind of a bargain because it's also a house. Can we get a price check?
This chunk of real estate sits just off of Main Street in Florence, at 111 Church Avenue. Florence is west of Pueblo, and there's not too much out there. OK, there's a supermax prison down the road, but according to PeakDream — aside from El Chapo — the town is also known as 'the Antique Capital of Colorado.' This antique you can live in —business in the front and home in the back.
'Before this building was constructed in 1960, the area was a railroad freight yard and interchange for trains for the Florence & Cripple Creek Railroad. After changing hands in ownership, the current building was built as a Safeway grocery store which closed in the 1980s.' - PeakDream
Currently, the 8,000 square-foot property is an antiques and collectibles store, and attached to the back is a one-bedroom, one-bathroom home with a gourmet kitchen, laundry room, hardwood flooring, fireplace, garage, and private patio.
In addition to really cool wood beam ceilings, the commercial space has a 'workshop area, two bathrooms, ample storage, kitchenette, loading dock, a separate building for more storage and 24 parking spaces,' the listing says.
If you're looking for a mixed-use property, or you want to empty it out and make it into a roller rink (me), this may be considered a discount in Colorado at its listing price. The property is listed by Berkshire Hathaway Rocky Mountain, Realtors. You can see the listing here.
