Property Details


Sellers said to lower the price so here is your chance to own a historic commerical building with loft living!

Built in 1887, this beautiful two story building located in downtown Council Grove KS was placed on the National Registor of Historic Places on July 22, 2010.  The building has a finished upstairs loft for residential living as well as a large retail space on the ground floor.

Over the last 128 years the retail portion of the building has been an office complex, a seminar center, a hardware store, a book store, an art gallery, and a cafe.  The original pressed tin ceilings are still in place!  The lower level features a large room at the front of the building, a private office and a catering kitchen as well as two restrooms in the center of the building.  The back portion of the first floor is utilized as a garage/work shop.

The second floor serves as a loft style residence with a full kitchen, a bedroom, full bath, and a spacious living room with a beautiful view of downtown Council Grove.   A large area in the back of the building offers a buyer multiple potential uses!  

This building  could be used by an entrepreneur who wants to live close to work, or the properties could be rented separately.  The retail and residential areas have separate utilites and the loft has its own street level private entrance.  

Council Grove sets at the intersection of KS Hwy 177 and US Hwy 56.  Topeka, Emporia, and Manhattan are all within an hour's drive.  The Flint Hills Scenic Byway runs from Council Grove to Cassoday.  The Santa Fe Trail runs through Council Grove and there are 25 scenic historic sites in Council Grove related to the history of the community.  Bikers and hikers are utilizing the new Flint Hills Nature Trail which runs from Eastern Kansas to Council Grove.   The Council Grove Federal Resevoir, managed by the Corp of Engineers provides abundant recreational opportunities for the camper, boater, and fisherman.   The Council Grove City Lake features  lakefront properties ranging from simple cabins to homes in the upper six figures.  

There are a lot of reasons to make your home or start your business in Council Grove, and priced at just $155,000, this property is priced to sell!  Call Marty Wright at 620-767-3258 to learn more or schedule an appointment to see this historical building!
