Beautiful 11+ Acres & 20,000 SF Mfg Space


An exciting real estate opportunity is available on US Hwy 220 North in Franklin County, next to the Rocky Mount Water Plant and Planned Pethood.  This property is zoned for M-1 Manufacturing which covers many different applications (see partial list at left).

Currently in use as a church furniture manufacturing plant, the property has had a variety of uses, including starting as Sheldon Ball & Bat company, a provider of baseball bats in the 1960s to both local kids and the big leagues!

There is 20,000 SF +/- of usable indoor space through 5 buildings. The buildings include an office building with 2 bathrooms, manufacturing building (including spray booths) with storage and a dust collection system, additional manufacturing or warehousing in 2 buildings with an accessible paved loading dock, and a storage building (former kiln with boiler in place). Three phase electric is on the property,  and town water is readily available, although the property is currently served adequately by a shared well.

The buildings utilize only about 3 acres of the 11 with the remainder in pasture on a gentle slope and surrounded on the back side by the Blackwater River in a beautiful setting. There is one main entrance on US 220, with an additional deeded 50 right of way ready to be opened to Shady Lane. A Phase 1 Environmental Study (2004) is available.  Several buildable acres are currently in pasture.

A number of upgrades have been done by the current owners including paving the driveway, office roof replacement, and more.

Recent Appraisal $410,000.  Asking price $399,000.  Broker participation welcome. Note: Property is under lease until June 2016.  

Will consider trades (or partial) for Smith Mountain Lake area property.
