The possibilities with this property are endless.
Sewer hookup is available. We opted out of hooking up to sewer because the location we would choose to connect would cross the property that is open field. We were concerned if someone wanted to build a shopping mall on the vacant land, it could interfere. Therefore, we did not connect, however, sewer is available. The building that is there has three septic tanks.
The traffic count, last checked, was trucks 21,000 per day and cars 17,000 per day. That was checked in 2010.
This property is grandfathered in with Georgia Department of Transportation and Never will be required to have a turning lane installed.
Across the street is Dog River Basin, therefore will never be commercialized.
Prior to this property on the same side is Bear Creek River Basin, and will never be commercialized.
Douglas County just changed all its commercial properties from neighborhood commercial to just “commercial”.
The building has a full daylight basement
There is a serious need for a grocery store, restaurant, plant nursery and fast food on this end of Highway 5. This is very close to Bright Star Road which is drastically changing to commercial and warehouse.
In the beginning, this property belonged to Mr. Edwards that started Edward's Pie. There still remain a lot of fruit trees and fruits vines throughout the property.
There are three fully handicapped bathrooms, with showers and tubs.
I have new appliances to be installed, however, I am waiting to see if the new owner will be using the building or getting rid of the building.
The property is priced just as land only, and I did not include the price of the building for fast sale.
The building is in really good shape, newly painted, fairly new roof, updated sprinkler system.
The barn on the property is beautiful. We have had photographers in the past use it as a photoshoot. The barn is over 100 years old, 4 horse stalls, and really beautiful. It is covered up right now with growth and needs to be cut.
You can have a business that sells alcohol as long as the entrance to the business is on the left side of the standing building. Law requires the entrance to be 1000 feet from the preschool next door. You just go from the front door of your business to the red light and to the front door of the daycare.
The property is paid for and there are no liens on the property.
We have had this property in my family for 40 years.
No real estate fees are involved because it is not listed with any real estate company.
