INVESTOR ALERT!! FOR SALE BY OWNER: Reduced for retirement.
Our 1912 historic home/business building is now empty and for sale. This charming home/business was used as a bookshop for the past 13 years and we have just cleared it out for retirement. We are 2 blocks from the river and Downtown River District in a new designated arts area called Gardener’s Park. Our downtown has undergone a hundred million dollar renovation and planning is currently in place for this area’s expansion. The zoning is Urban Center and Residential which allows for mixed use. We are in the historic original area of Ft. Myers with old growth trees in a safe and established neighborhood of artists, eco-attraction, restaurants, tea & coffee shops, micro-brewery and antique mall across the street. There is a incredible opportunity for the right person with vision. We are ready to re-locate and have priced this for a quick sale.

This building sits on a 80 x 90 ft. lot. The downstairs and upstairs are 1800+ sq. ft. ea. The downstairs has 3 entrances which makes it possible to be divided for multi-tenants. The first floor has one large center main room, and 3 large rooms to each side with a very large upstairs loft apartment with 13 Ft. ceilings and skylights. Hardwood yellow pine flooring throughout. 1 full bath and one half bath downstairs ( no tub or shower) original enamel sinks. One full bathroom upstairs with a shower. Large windows with original glass and counter weights all working, pocket doors and french doors, and transom windows. Roof is a 30 year roof and was replaced in 2006. There are a few temporary window a/c units and the central HVAC A/C unit will need to be replaced. There is a large back deck that has a wheelchair ramp and will need to be repaired. Most of the repairs/renovations are cosmetic. This is a home in need of repairs and is priced accordingly and under current market value. All appliances are included in the sale.
