Property Description

This is a phenomenal TURN KEY opportunity for anyone thinking of going into business. A local restaurant owner is retiring after 19 years and is offering to sell this land, a building of approximately 2700 SF, & its entire contents. The building sits on approximately 2.8 acres of prime commercial land equipped with a commercial well & a 1000 gallon septic system, making expansion a real possibility. Located just before the intersection of Highways 128 and 107, the building itself is historical. Dating back to when as a grocery store/gas station it was the center of the east side of Mountain Rest, it now holds a successful restaurant & ice cream parlor with ever-increasing mountain traffic due to the resurgence of outdoor activities. The kitchen is fully equipped with all stainless steel shelving, a commercial gas cooktop with 6 double eyes, & a griddle. Underneath the cooktop is two ovens. A state-of-the-art stainless range hood is above the cooktop & the three fryers. A large capacity grease trap, a four-year-old commercial dishwasher, & a new ice machine are some of the other equipment in this well-appointed commercial kitchen. The restaurant by itself currently seats 42 inside customers. An adjoining ice cream parlor with its own separate entrance seats an additional 24. The oversized & covered front porch adds character as well as additional usable space. The ice cream parlor can be a separate business - say a coffee shop, a gift shop, or as it is - an ice cream parlor. It can be anything you can dream of. The building is a great space & ideal location. The “mountain” as the area is affectionately known is becoming increasingly popular and ripe for business development. At one time there was a plan to put campsites or tiny houses on the additional land behind the building. There is a large commercial capacity well & a 1000 gallon septic system. The area is a popular destination for mountain bikers due to the opening of the new Stumphouse Mountain Bike Park originating at Oconee State Park, only 2.5 miles away. The Stumphouse Mountain Tunnel and Issaqueena Falls, popular Yellow Branch Falls & Picnic Area are just down the road. There are many hiking trails & oh so many waterfalls in the area. One must pass this location to go to Highlands or Cashiers. Not far is Whetstone Rd, which leads to zip line adventures & world-class guided rafting on the mighty Chattooga River. This business at this location is a rare find. The opportunities are endless and the "Mountain" locals and visitors are waiting to see what new business will win the opportunity of their patronage.
