Commercial Real Estate Auction


Commercial Real Estate Auction of two carefully renovated historic (circa 1900) retail buildings in downtown Van Alstyne. Sellers are retiring and highly motivated to sell.

The 2 commercial buildings are presently joined by a “walk-thru” opening in the middle of the show room which make this an attractive and functional floor plan of almost 5000 square feet ( according to owner). The buildings are thoroughly updated with electrical, plumbing and Central HVAC and can easily be converted to individual suites. They have hard wood floors, one has Imprinted Tin Ceilings and the other, vintage wood planking, large storage areas in the rear and convenient alley access through a large roll up door in the rear. These buildings are ideally suited for retail, restaurant or offices as they are located in a mixed use retail area of Van Alstyne. One side presently houses the Yellow Rose Antique Drug Store and Soda Fountain and the other side an antique mall. Presently, they are joined, however, they were originally two separate buildings and can be sold separately or jointly. While each building has its own HVAC, meters and access, the bathrooms are located in the Mall portion. There is ample room in the drug store for bathrooms and they can be added very cost effectively.


Overall square footage per tax records 4025’, this does not include an addition that is covered by HVAC, which is used for additional display area and storage. The combined area under HVAC is about 5000 sq ft.

During the past 14 years, the building has been carefully renovated so that it is economical, functional and historically correct. Each side has a high efficiency A/C compressor and gas furnace that was installed by the owner. The interior walls are covered with the original plaster that was painstakingly repaired and painted as was the ceilings. The front has original doors and  the copper frames around the windows are part of the original building. The roof was inspected and repaired within the past 5 years and the floors were carefully refinished in order to reflect the time period.
