Here is a special opportunity to acquire and continue the legacy of one of Vermont's oldest country stores. The unique mansard roofed store's history can be traced back to c1858 and has hosted a masonic lodge ("Odd Fellows Hall") a theater known as Sheldon Hall, Grist Mill/Granary (with original huge wooden wheel and spindles in attic!) as well as the store through various owners and generations of Shermans .. It currently houses the West Rupert post office as well generating a monthly rental income. The store has had many upgrades and renovations and has /-4,000 sq ft of store/office/kitchen space all on the main level. The cavernous basement and huge 2nd floor(the old theater) offers much additional space for expansion. Septic was redone c2005, drilled well, 4 leased split unit electric heat pumps for heating and cooling along with propane hot air furnace... The original antiquity and architectural details have been carefully preserved along with the addition of a commercial kitchen and outdoor rear porch with booths for seating.
