DESCRIPTION: One of the most unique properties in San Saba is strategically located on the busiest street in town offering excellent business exposure. This claim can be confirmed by the success of the current tenant. The front 1/3 of the ground floor was beautifully remodeled in 2003 with a new storefront, electrical wiring, carpet and commercial lighting to provide a classy atmosphere appropriate for displaying works of art. The back 2/3 of the downstairs is split into two areas approx. 980 sq. ft. each. Both these areas have approx. 14 high ceilings with R-30 fiberglass insulation. The front 2/3 of the downstairs is currently leased; the rear 1/3 opens to an alley/parking area and is presently used for a wood shop and has 220 3-phase electric power installed. This area could also provide additional income if rented. The downstairs floor plan includes a restroom with hot & cold water and a photo dark room.
