The Miller Building
With one of the best commercial locations in Rappahannock, the Miller Building is an excellent investment opportunity. It is located on Main Street in Little Washington, two blocks from the renowned Inn at Little Washington. The Inn’s 23 guest rooms plus three active B&Bs within a two-block radius produce a steady stream of well-heeled customers. Little Washington is a picturesque small-town brimming with arts venues, interesting shops and galleries that attract tourists from the entire east coast. The Miller Building is also one block from the County Courthouse and office complex with its insatiable appetite for office space.
The Miller Building features plenty of off-street parking with storefront parking on Main Street and a 12-car parking lot on the lower level. It has five HVAC zones, handicap accessible rest rooms, cable internet and town sewer and water. The building is fully rented.
The main level of the Miller Building is home to Rare Finds, an eclectic gift and antique shop. The main retail space features two large showrooms with display windows and a spacious foyer for additional retail space. The shop area features heart of pine wood floors.
A second entrance from Main Street opens to additional retail space that previously housed a well-appointed lawyer’s office. The old offices are now retail showrooms and the ex-conference room is a large open room with fine mountain views. With two entrances on Main Street, the building has a great deal of flexibility for future use.
The lower level is home to Hampton Title Company and Battle Mountain Antiques. The office space features a private entrance, large windows for plenty of natural light and a handicap accessible bathroom. With great light and an open floor plan, this space would make an excellent show room or gallery. It includes a generous storage area that could easily be turned into a workshop.
Battle Mountain Antiques fills the remainder of the lower level. It features a second private entrance with a small outside sitting area. Historically, this space was an apartment and the full bath and kitchen intact are still intact. A large staircase connects the lower level to the upper level.
The Miller Building is perfect for retail shops, galleries, offices, apartments or mixed usage. With its enviable location and flexibility, it is an opportunity not to be missed.
