In the heart of the picturesque village of El Rito lies 1213 State Road 554, a testament to both history and community resilience. Built in 1912 as Martin's General Mercantile, this establishment stood as a gathering point for generations. Its familiar facade, marking the center of town, resonates deeply with stories of yesteryears. By 2017, a meticulous renovation orchestrated by the current owner seamlessly blended the charm of yesteryears with today's modern conveniences. This endeavor unveiled a 2-bedroom, 2-bath residence enriched with character. Bathrooms gleam with classic subway tiles, and footsteps are cushioned by the allure of penny tile floors. In specific areas of the home, one can admire the original, antique tin square ceilings, echoing a time when such ceilings were introduced as a cost-effective method to enhance the aesthetic of a room's uppermost wall. The kitchen, a modern chef's delight, features pristine subway tiles, a professional gas range with a griddle, and a spacious walk-in pantry, ensuring culinary endeavors are both enjoyable and efficient. Adjacent to this living space is an art studio, bathed in abundant natural light, a haven that inspires creativity and offers tranquility for reflection and work. Positioned strategically along the highway, the property extends an unparalleled advantage to artists or entrepreneurs. Its location presents a harmonious blend of a serene live/work studio space with the potential for visibility, ideal for those keen on showcasing their art or other ventures.
