Like the action in the show that stole everyone’s hearts and everyone’s Emmys, Schitt’s Creek is a small village for sale in Tennessee at a shockingly low price.

The seven-acre village of Water Valley can be purchased for $ 725,000 — much cheaper than the million dollars an average one-bedroom apartment in New York City costs.

The potential owner will take possession of four out-of-the-ordinary stores that were built in the 19th century. Two of the buildings have updated wiring and plumbing and are grandfather to be used for business, housing or a B&B.

Another of the historic properties has been renovated into a settlement by the river with three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The construction also boasts the two-story Stock Barn, which overlooks a grove of trees.

‘This particular area became famous for the apple orchards that were through this area back in the 1800s. It thrived so much that the railroad came through here ‘she said of the city which was busy in the 1930s and 40s until the area changed,’ said Christa Swartz, who has the unique list.

The Maury County property is only about 50 miles south of Nashville and is surrounded by other charming towns such as Leiper’s Fork, which offers few local eateries, a small record store, an antique shop, local art galleries and cozy cabins where guests can stay overnight.

Water Valley is sold by four family members who have owned the land for more than 20 years and appreciate the history of the picturesque place, but hope to sell their beloved Tennessee property to someone who will promote a small town charm similar to Leiper’s Fork.

‘The sellers are really hoping now that whoever gets it first and foremost does not destroy any of the buildings that are here,’ Christa Swartz, who built the property on June 28, told News Channel 5.

‘Yes, it needs help, but they hope it can be something a little Leipers Fork-ish. Maybe a destination for antiques, music venue or hold your wedding here. ‘

With reference to old Dr. Pepper and Vick’s VapoRub signs hanging from a wall in one of the buildings, Swartz explained to News Channel 7, ‘All these signs are original.’

She noticed the hole in a wall that was once a store’s mail opening and the cut-off part of the sidewalk where a man used to sit and press his cane.

The historic town was bustling in the 1800s and early 1900s as a thriving apple orchard until cedar trees were introduced and the apple trees wiped out

The city began to decline when ‘cedar trees were introduced to the area,’ Swartz said.

‘They carried with them a blush that killed the apple trees, and soon after stopped the railway through. It is probably the end of many small towns throughout America. People went on. ‘

The property sale also comes with parking spaces along 3520 and 3535 Water Valley Road.

‘I think this is a steal. For someone who has more money to invest in it, to make it what it should be … it’s an incredibly good deal, ‘said Swartz, who works for Fathom Realty.

A few other cities are on the market, but most have price tags over a million dollars. Bridgeville, California, costs $ 1.5 million. Tuthill, Maine sells for $ 5.5 million and Little Hawkins Island, Georgia, is booked for $ 15.9 million.

Water Valley is not just much compared to other cities, asking price is less than what more homes sell for just down the road in Williamson County.

Many people have noticed the sale of the Water Valley to the grounds of Schitt's Creek, but the owners of the land do not want to sell the land to Hollywood, even though they have received calls

And nearby, Nashville’s red-hot housing market rose to another staggering high after a $ 1.5 million mobile home sold – for a property that fetched just over $ 130,000 in 2007 – ahead of software giant Oracle’s plans to build its second headquarters in Music By.

The trailer, located on the east bank of the Cumberland River, contains only 528 square feet, according to Zillow, but sits on a 1.23-acre plot that the buyer is expected to develop into more units in the gentrifying neighborhood.

But the sellers of Water Valley do not want to sell to anyone who plans to build the property or disturb the charm of the area in the small town.

According to Swartz, they are looking for a buyer who ‘can really appreciate and recreate it as much as possible for something that thrives and has as much future as before.’

The real estate agent admitted: ‘I got a couple of people to mention the TV series Schitt’s Creek.’

The popular TV series follows the Rose family as they are forced to move to the fictional Schitt’s Creek – a small village Johnny (Eugene Levy) had bought for his son David (Daniel Levy) as a muzzle – after their business boss embezzled the family business.

The show swept the comedy categories at the Emmys 2020 and won six awards.

But the sellers have said ‘Ew, David’ to anyone who might free the city from its original charm.

‘We’ve had a couple of calls from Hollywood asking if they could buy the whole city to use as a movie set.’ But she said that ‘it would really remove this from the reality of history and make it more of a scene rather than something we preserve as the history of Tennessee.’
