Look inside! Former general store on the banks of the French Broad River in NC. $650,000

July 7, 2023

Former general store on the banks of the French Broad River! Nice interior! This general store was built in 1945. It is located on .15 acres in Marshall, North Carolina. Wonder how active the railroad track is? But I imagine back in the day it was a busy a general store with the proximity to the track. The home features hardwood floors, built-ins, baseboards and an art studio. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms and 2,901 square feet. $650,000
