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!
