About the Real Estate
Real Estate Description
This restored historic commercial/retail building built in 1905 is situated in the downtown square of Burton, TX, which is a historic commercial district on the national register! The building formerly housed the old Hohlt Meat Market & Cafe in Burton, and now having been recently restored has great potential for commercial use as an antique store, art gallery, coffee shop, wine bar, beer tavern, cafe, office, or a retail store front. Its central location is within easy walking distance of nearby shops, restaurants, the local bank, and the US post office.
Although foot traffic in Burton is mostly minimal (except during times of special events in the area), the amount of vehicle traffic that specifically drives by the front of this building located at 12510 W. Texas Street is quite busy due to the regional US post office being located right next door (see map), resulting in higher visibility for commercial/retail purposes. In addition, vehicle traffic that goes by the front of the building will increase even more in the near future as W. Texas Street will be extended westward to hook up with state Hwy 290, which is the main artery that most people use to go back and forth between Houston and Austin.
Specifications wise, recent improvements include an upgraded electric service to 200 amp, rebuilt and insulated west-side wall, installation of new metal roof and ridge cap, new smoothed-out concrete floors, and the installation of 2 bathrooms with pedestal sinks, toilets, and floor drains for future bath/shower. Brand new dual central HVAC units have recently been installed in the building for maximum climate control purposes. The size of the building is 1,219 square feet, which sits on a 0.062 acre lot with an open porch in front, an open patio in back, a large pecan tree in the back yard, and room for a wooden deck area to be built around this pecan tree. The open front porch is 211 square feet and the open back patio's concrete slab area covers 422 square feet. In addition, there are two sections to the building, one on the east side and one on the west side, so theoretically one could set up two businesses there, or just have one business established in one section while using the other section for storage purposes, etc. Finally, each section has its own half bathroom, with shower functionality available in one of them. Overall, the building is gorgeous both inside and out, and is now ready for someone to take it over and set up their retail business in it.
Location wise, the small, historic town of Burton gives you the luxury of the quiet, picturesque feel of the small town life, with the convenience of being just minutes from the amenities of Brenham and the world-famous Spring and Fall antique shows of Round Top. It is the hometown of the historic Texas Cotton Gin Museum, Burton Sausage, Saddlehorn Winery, Brazos Belle Country French Bistro, Burton Roadhouse Restaurant & Bar, White Horse Tavern, several nice antique furniture and B&B venues, and the start of the gorgeous La Bahia Scenic Hwy (FM 390) through Washington County. Best of all, Burton is located right off of Hwy 290 for an easy commute both to and from the nearby destination towns of Brenham and Round Top!

Main Street for two blocks and then take a left onto W. Texas St. The restored building is a block down and to the right (across the street from the Hair Salon).
