This 1923 mercantile has been newly renovated into an outstanding private residence, and you are renting the entire space. This building is 2,350 square feet with 2 bedrooms, full kitchen, 2 1/2 baths, deck, hardwoods, and a large great room with a quaint wet bar looking onto the historic Ben Sutton store. Eclectic mix of old and new, with a front porch that sets right on the main street of historic Granville. A perfect getaway place for everyone.
