Description

Located in the heart of historic Cape Charles, these two buildings are iconic and picturesque of small-town USA. This is truly a one-of-a-kind investment and redevelopment opportunity.

225 Mason Avenue is an 8,000+ SF hardware store that has been in continuous operation for over 100 years, owned/operated by the Watson family for the past five decades. This building is two full levels, with a mezzanine between and a historic freight elevator which is still operational.

Adjoining is 219 Mason Avenue, a 4,000+ SF building which housed the Radium Movie Theatre in the early 1900’s. Today this building includes two retail shops at street level and three small offices upstairs, but most of it is vacant, waiting to be reimagined.

Located on Mason Avenue, in the center of town with views of the harbor, these buildings include  13,000 SF with 80’ of frontage on Mason Avenue. This is a unique opportunity to help define what Cape Charles looks like for the next generation. Potential uses include mixed use with retail downstairs and office or multi-family upstairs. Think grocery, bike shop, offices, boutique market, brewery, distillery, restaurant, art gallery and myriad of other options!
