If you’ve always dreamed of living in the country, owning your own business and love both people and history, perhaps there’s an opportunity for you in this week’s unique property.

The Enterprise Community Hall, 1477 19 Road in Fruita, is for sale, along with the adjacent house. Anyone who grew up in the Lower Valley has probably been to a wedding, party or funeral at the Enterprise Hall. The building has been hosting community gatherings since the 1920s, although it started out as a one-room school built in a different location in 1891. The school was moved to its current location in 1916, but was closed by the 1920s, when it became known as the Enterprise Hall of Good Cheer. 

The house, which sits at 1473 19 Road and has a separate deed, is considerably newer than the hall, since it was built in 1962. Both the house and the hall were given extensive remodeling when the current owner bought them in 2000.

The house remodel included updated plumbing and electrical systems, a new kitchen, bathrooms, windows, siding, roof and a deck. Although the house doesn’t seem large from the front, it has 2,260 square feet, and includes a full, finished basement with a large master suite. 

Upstairs, there is a large family room with a pellet stove that can be used to heat the living area and the kitchen. The kitchen is a great working kitchen, with plenty of countertops, storage and a convenient layout that makes it easy whether there’s one or three cooks working together in the kitchen.

Two additional bedrooms and a bathroom are also upstairs. Outside, a large back deck looks out over the shady yard that’s surrounded by corn fields. A separate shop sits behind the house, with 220-volt wiring for welding, a pellet stove, a half-bath, a separate storage area for yard equipment and enough room to house an RV. The house and shop sit on 1.3 acres. 

The real pearl of this offering, however, is the hall. Included in the hall property are three storage sheds with tables, chairs, centerpieces, fountains, linens and decorations needed for multiple events already booked at the hall. There is plenty of parking, along with a children’s play area, a horseshoe pit and a large, shady outdoor area where chairs can be set up for outdoor celebrations.

When the current owner bought the property, the building was simply the original one-room schoolhouse, with a small lean-to on the back for cooking and outhouses behind the building. He built an addition to the facility to give it a large kitchen, two multiple-stall bathrooms downstairs, and an upstairs changing area for brides with its own private bathroom. 

Business is fairly brisk at the hall, with events booked every weekend from April through October. Although November is typically slow, December picks back up with Christmas and holiday parties and gatherings. Generally, the first three months of the new year are slow, but there are two weddings already booked at the hall for 2014.

The two properties are listed separately, but would make an ideal purchase together for a caterer or event planner or anyone who’s interested in running a business from home. Sharon Vaughn with Coldwell banker is listing the Enterprise Community Hall for $335,000 and the home for $275,000, or $610,000 for both.
