Description: 26,600±SF 34-room brick- sided assisted living facility on two tracts totaling 10.8± acres on the east side of Business U.S. 27. Property was in service as an assisted living facility prior to being forced to shut down during Covid.
All 34 rooms were designed for either single or double occupancy. Amenities offered by the facility included an activity center, a dining room and commercial kitchen, a salon, a nurses station and conference room, a therapy room, and a laundry facility. Gated access, and 43 parking spaces with 9 dedicated as handicapped-only use.
An easement benefiting a 7.48-acre tract to the east of the site runs along the course of the drive servicing the property from Business U.S. 27 and continues along the north boundary of the property. Public water, sewer and natural gas serve the property (CONFIRM).
Zoned C-1 by the city of Buchanan with 365± feet of frontage on Business U.S. Highway 27 in Buchanan. C-1 zoning allows for a variety of uses, as can be seen on the Buchanan zoning ordinance, posted to our website.
Permitted uses include but are not limited to retail stores, banks, health clubs/spas, barbershops, cafes and restaurants (without drive-through windows).
Conditional uses include but are not limited to auto service stations, appliance repair, bus terminal, theater (excluding drive-in theaters) wholesaling establishments, places of worship, public and private schools, golf, swimming, tennis or country clubs, hotels and motels, professional and business offices, hospitals, clinics and convalescent or nursing homes, dry cleaning shopping centers, and funeral homes.
After the property became vacant, vandals damaged a water line and a portion of the building flooded. This has resulted in a mold outbreak in the building which has not been addressed.
Haralson County Tax ID# 0074 0075AA (6.83 acres) and 0074 0075A (4 acres). All improvements with the exception of a small portion of the driveway are located on the 6.83 acre tract.
2022 Tax Value $3.146 million (6.83 acres) and $55,000 (4 acres). Because the owner is a non-profit, the 6.83 acre site with most of the improvements has not been subject to property tax.
