October 28, 2020

Love the pressed tin ceilings! This would make a great space for condos. The Americus Hospital was built in 1913. It is located on 1.71 acres in Americus, Georgia. It is located in a residential area and qualifies for tax credits. Definitely needs someone with deep pockets and very knowledgeable with restoration. Currently it sits at four bedrooms and four bathrooms, but it has 13,170 square feet. $99,999

From the Zillow listing:


Great Investment Opportunity!! Old Americus Hospital: Through a deal with the Sumter Historic Trust, I currently own and maintain this building. It is for sale, and it would be a terrific location for upscale condominiums or apartments — something needed in Americus. It’s located in a residential neighborhood. I know it’s eligible for historic building tax credits and I think it’s in the enterprise zone for additional tax credits. Several years ago, an architect owned it and priced out 11 to 13 condos in the building for $1 million investment. Building is in poor condition but foundation on both floors is solid and dry except for a small porch added on to the building. Roof has no leaks, and it’s a massive Prairie-style building, c. 1913, offers over 13,000 square feet of space on a huge (1.7 acre) tree-shaded lot in the middle of a pleasant residential neighborhood, close to the University. Architectural details include stylized Art Deco brickwork, interior columns, pressed metal ceilings, extra-wide doors, and a skylight in the original operating theater on the second floor. Building is in need of complete renovation, but has terrific potential for conversion into upscale apartments or condominiums. Zoned R-3. Historic District.
