|Dairy Plaza built in 1999
This building was built new and designed as an soft service
cream takeout .
It is 42 feet by 18 feet., (with a 8 by 16 jut out for the bathroom and storage area,) with 60 % of the floor
space used for the Ice Cream shop ,the remainder was set up as a crafts shop.
This building has its own well and septic system, it is insulated with 6 inch fiberglass ,
and comes equipped with some remaining equipment, one ice cream machine , 1 fryaltor and a
$11,000 Ansul Fire Suppression Unit with a 8 foot stainless steel hood, 200 lb. ice maker, and a couple
stainless steel tables, most oher equipment has been dispursed of .
In the past we specialized in quality foods and ice cream products .
Because of demand we also carried a leading brand of Hard Ice Cream in 24 flavors !
We are on a tourist route which helps very much, also across from the entrance from the
athletic field and beach and boat launch. This business is seasonal ,and I have enjoyed it
Ice cream customers are ALWAYS in a good mood when they come , but it's time to move on .
My long term plan was to build this place , run it for two years and sell it . It was a good plan , but
in the 6 months that I had it listed by Town and Country, it produced no buyers with a down payment .
Currently I have posted the equipment as being for sale. In the meantime I have converted it
into an apartment for income without the hours involved .
|APARTMENT . former ICE CREAM SHOP
UPDATE on the paragraph below - This has been converted to a residential rental now - the existing commericial plumbing
is still in place , just capped off for residential use.
Opportunity knocks!!! Soft serve ice cream and food takeout
business, includes newer building (built in 1999 ) and remaining equipment. This business is ready to go!
It even has a drive thru pick-up window for phone orders. Plenty of parking. Located across from an active recreational
field and public beach on a busy highway. About half the business location was set up as a craft outlet, as a lease.
Great chance to add canoe ,kayak rentals for the Public beach and boat launch just over 400 feet away .
Live next door in a pleasant country four bedroom home.
Customer base is building the first three seasons in operation , You got to wondering
why am I selling it ? Well , my long range plan was to build this place run it for two years , get out any bugs
,then sell it , It is a good plan !
My sign out front reads "REASON for selling , been there, done that , gone
fishing " (This year I'm Alaska bound !)
|House adjacent to the Dairy Plaza
|This house is currently a rental producing $400.00 per month
House for sale in Maine
This house , building date unknown 1860-1910 is a comfortable
residence. It currently is used as a rental , most tenants stay about 3 years. It has a small cellar with, electric
water heater, waterpump and forced hot air oil furnace in it. The first floor has an outside porch and 4 rooms
downstairs besides the kitchen pantry and full bath. Also from the front porch entry, there is a small hall and coat
rack. Upstairs there are 2 -3 rooms, the third being a wide hallway large enough for a twin bed . There is also a large stone & brick fireplace that has been closed
off by paneling, my estimate is that $1000 would restore this to a nice working fireplace.
There is a nice spacious private back yard with room for a garden, a nice
apple tree and a majestic cedar. and room for a garden !
|BROWN HOUSE 3 to 5 bedroom
Both buildings have their own independent well and new septic systems.
There is adequate storage for two vehicles in the barn as well as much more.
There is nearly equal storage on the second floor of the barn . I used one part for my wife,s vechicle and the
other (larger) for my work shop, saws, drills, planers and misc stuff. Did you notice the sign on the
barn roof ? In Maine under the "billboard law " it is legal to have an "on premises billboard " Mine read ICE
CREAM , FOOD , - VISA / MASTERCHARGE
