Amazing live/work opportunity! Ever dreamed of owning a lovely, quiet, rural property where you can live and carry on business economically? The former home of the iconic Wooden Nickel antique shop which ran successfully as a family business for 35 years is just such a place. The owners retired and closed the shop in 2009 but have continued to live in their family home until now - it's time for their next adventure. The property is 0.64 acres with wide frontage on and easy access from Hilliers Rd. The building offers a charming 2 bed, 2 bath home above a 5000 s.f. shop efficiently heated with 2 woodstoves and 2 heatpumps and the C-1 zoning allows a wide range of uses. The original character building was constructed around 1912 and has been carefully and sensitively maintained, expanded and renovated over the years. Need room for a second dwelling? The adjacent 0.5 acre lot could be available to add to the package. Inquire with your Realtor to get details.
