This beautiful and storied 1800’s brick structure has seen many changes and served many purposes over the years.
12 Culpeper St., Warrenton, VA 20186
The current owners undertook a complete renovation in 2017, and the building has most recently operated as the Gateau Bakery, Café, and Tea Room. The top-to-bottom renovation revealed and preserved much of the charming, original features. The three levels are currently designed with a dining room, preparation room, shop area, storage/utility rooms, 3 bathrooms, office, and an expansive, state-of-the-art commercial kitchen.
Some of the distinguishing features of this property include the original safe doors from the late 1800s, original wood floors on the main level, exposed brick, two crystal chandeliers, a dumbwaiter, an angled entry door, built-ins, vertical beams, a 22-seat dining room, and a service entry.
Among the updates are new AC units, a new hot water heater, 2 ADA compliant bathrooms on the main level, a water filtration system, and so much more. The conveyances are extensive (see additional documentation) but include the custom retail display case, outdoor wall lanterns, security camera, antique reclaimed wood pieces, custom balcony railing, a large walk-in refrigerator, 4 Blodgett ovens, two additional refrigerators, range, cooktop, dishwasher, 3-bay sink, and many other items.
This corner-lot building sits in a superb downtown location, with excellent exposure, public parking, and foot traffic. Many possible uses exist making this an outstanding opportunity.
