Located on the historic Canton Square, the E & A Hesdorffer building has been completely and beautifully renovated with modern standards, all while keeping the integrity of the unique craftsmanship of it's original construction in 1905. With impeccable attention to detail, the owners have designed a well appointed lower level retail/multi use area with a luxury loft apartment upstairs that would rival any five star hotel. Many of the original features remain, including wood floors, transoms, doors, hardware, bead board ceilings, plaster exposed brick, and the still functioning Manly Machine Co. freight elevator. All HVAC, electric, plumbing, etc. has been completely redone along with a new roof. The apartment features an open kitchen/living area and adjacent keeping room, all with large arching windows overlooking the Courthouse and the many other buildings being rejuvenated on the square. There are two bedrooms, each with double closets and a large suite sized bath between them that includes a walk in shower, double sinks, toilet room, storage, and a full size stackable washer/dryer area. All Jenn Air stainless appliances in the kitchen, including a flat top range, refrigerator, microwave, and dishwasher. The separate front entrance to the apartment has its own street level door and is tucked to the right of the retail space windows. A second interior staircase is located in the back storage area, which is separated from the main living with a door in the long corridor hallway that runs the length of the building. This back hall and storage is large enough to almost double the size of the living space, or include office space, another shop or spa, art studio, etc! The Downstairs retail space includes front street parking, display windows, private office, break area with two restrooms, and a large backstock room with a metal door to the back alley and additional parking in the rear lot. Canton is a destination for thousands each year, who visit the Canton Flea Market in spring and fall, The Mississippi Championship Hot Air Balloon Festival, the Canton Lights at Christmas time and the many beautiful homes and landmarks that have been used in several Hollywood Films. With Amazon, Nissan, and Continental Tire among many others continuing to bring commerce to the area, this is a great time to join in with the rebirth happening in this unique community!
