Overview / Comments

This truly unique property was originally designed and developed as the headquarters supporting the creativity and talent of Jim Davis, creator of one of the world's most syndicated comic strips, Garfield the Cat. Located only 10 minutes from Muncie's downtown central business district, the facility is situated on 20 serene, wooded acres and boasts the country’s first permitted, permanent solar aquatic system, which treats waste water generated by the facility to return to the ground 95 percent free of impurities. This gem of a property includes a primary structure consisting of large, open spaces, private offices, a beautiful, sun-filled atrium, a commercial kitchen, exercise facility with showers/lockers and a poured concrete basement housing the mechanical systems and archive storage. The separate studio includes 2,233 SF of finished office plus attached greenhouse, poured concrete basement, kitchenette, bath/shower, wood burning stove and fireplace. The studio has potential for use as living quarters for an on-site care taker, additional office space or event space. The 7,952 sf warehouse has multiple overhead doors (exterior and interior) heat and restrooms and is currently used as storage. Approximately 5.5 acres are designated as Wildlife Habitat (a bonus for property taxes) and an additional 2,736 SF greenhouse structure utilized for the waste water treatment process is situated on an adjacent parcel. This property truly is beyond words to describe. Please schedule a tour to enjoy the amenities this property has to offer. See attachments for additional information on the property's history. Personal property is negotiable.
