Spectacular Well Established Art Gallery in Carmel, CA

Carmel, CA

Must-see art gallery in Carmel-by-the-Sea, a world-famous art mecca: • A few blocks from the ocean in the heart of the prime retail area. • Excellent cash flow today with strong future expansion prospects. • Great life style choice for a new owner or husband/wife team. • Beautiful build-out on two floors is a designer’s dream. • Attractive lease. • Enjoys a scarce Carmel multi-use license. (Carmel has strict controls on the number and type of businesses in the prime downtown area. It does not allow new art galleries. A multi-use license means the owner is not only permitted to sell art, but also antiques, clothing and other retail items.) • Has exclusive rights to some of the world’s most famous artists and sculptors. Everything is on consignment which means cash is not tied up in inventory. A new owner (pre-qualified) should be able to continue most of these relationships. The current owner will assist in that process, as well as provide training. • Carmel is a great place to live and work. Carmel (along with nearby Pebble Beach, Pacific Grove and Monterey) attracts year-round visitors, and the downtown shopping area has high-income clientele including both visitors and area residents. The gallery is for sale because the owner wishes to retire. This gorgeous profitable gallery is offered at only $367,000!
