This is an amazing opportunity to own a large warehouse approved building of amazing proportions. Factory history on this building, known as the Brooks factory, shows uses as far back as 1848 with the manufacturing of screw eyes and hooks. The old grist and saw mill is across the creek located on the property and the water rushes over the rocks with a pleasing sound. Many special principal uses are listed as permitted with special exception, such as a Bed $ Breakfast or Art Facility, according to R-1 town zoning regs. Already in place in the main building is a loading dock and 3 floors of large workspaces with some spaces drywalled. Plenty of light streams in from the original leaded windows which adds to the character of this property. Located in the thriving Art, unique shopping boutique and top-rated restaurant community of Chester, CT., the possibilities for this property are endless and many uses come to mind, such as artist workspaces, galleries, shops, designer spaces, theatre. No representation is made regarding uses and buyer due diligence is required. Property is unique and seeks a buyer with capital and vision. Descendants of the Brooks family repurchased the property in 2019 and have done many updates to the building including a new roof on the entire back section of the building, some electrical wiring, a new hot water heater, lighting fixtures in the main living area. A large expanse of the property was cleared to a lovely grass lawn.
