Groton Auto store building

Lot # 1

A business building that offers showroom, workshops and offices. 3,090 sq ft with offices, bathroom, cold storage, workshop and lots of usable space. Well suited for a small business that's looking to expand into its own space. Parking spaces for more than a dozen vehicles with almost 2 acres of open and wooded land. It's located in the village and has municipal water and sewer and natural gas heat. A new furnace as of the end of 2017.

The current owner is VERY motivated to sell and wants to make a deal. Groton's zoning enforcement officer indicated that the planning board is favorable towards business and would be open to meetings to discuss potential uses for the property. Inexpensive property with commercial possibilities are hard to find, this is a sound building in a great spot. All contents of the auto supply store will be sold via auction as well and the building will be empty at the time of sale.
