Have you ever wanted to own an iconic business on the plateau? Now is your chance! The Town and Country General Store, conveniently located between Highlands and Cashiers, is offered for sale.The store opened in 2019 and has continued to grow year after year. The property has almost four acres with multiple buildings. The building could remain a general store or would make a fantastic restaurant with a one bedroom home included to live in, rent out, or use for employee housing. There is a built-in market growing every day with dozens of new homes being developed in the adjoining affluent Glen Cove community. Built in 1920, the property was originally a logging home. Workers gathered around the distinctive fireplace to stay warm during the mountain winters. Later, the first dentist of Jackson County lived on the property and raised three daughters. In recent decades, descendants of the creator of the iconic Raggedy Ann doll had a store and a museum here. A collection of Raggedy Ann and Andy memorabilia is still on display in the store as a connection to the store's history. When the current owner purchased the property, it was her desire to preserve its history. After discovering that the building wasn't salvageable, she went to great lengths to keep the original chimney as part of the store. As a result, when you walk through the front door of Town & Country, the chimney remains as a testament to what once was. The business possibilities are endless whether you continue with the award-winning vision or put your own touch on an already successful concept. Completely renovated in 2019. The one bedroom, one bath cabin on the property was recently updated and is currently being used as a vacation rental. Seller will consider owner financing with the right terms and approval.
