Question: Since the listing states that the business can be bought for an additional sum, does this mean that the property is subject to an executory contract that would prevent the property from ceasing to be used as a bed and breakfast and instead used as a private residence?
Answer: We are checking with the owners now. Will let you know as soon as we get an answer. Thank you. Just to be sure, you are asking if you would be able to continue running a B&B even if you do not purchase the existing business and the house only? Thanks
Question: No, I'm not interested in operating a B&B. I would like to know if the property can be used exclusively as a private residence.
Answer: Thomas, Yes the property can be used as a home exclusively. It's zoned single family residential with a special use permit. Does not have to be operated as a business, however has freedom to do so.Does that answer the question for you?
