COARSEGOLD — Ownership of one of Coarsegold’s single-largest commercial properties has changed hands.
The 5.78-acre mini-mall and strip development on the east side of Highway 41, home to a number of the town’s most active businesses, was sold to a Bay Area real estate investment trust.
Located at 35335 Highway 41, the center was built in 1990 and actually includes five separate parcels encompassing a total of 27,362 square feet of leasable commercial space.
The $3.25 million sale closed escrow on July 29, according to county records.
The buyer was listed in the deed transfer as Gold Creek Center, LLC.
Local real estate broker John Thor handled the transaction.
Public records confirm Robert and Dru Bratty of Bass Lake were the sellers. He operates Robert Bratty Enterprises and, according to his website, specializes in commercial real estate and office space rental in the Oakhurst, Coarsegold, and Fresno areas.
When reached on his cell phone Wednesday morning, Bratty declined to comment on the sale.
Several proprietors of businesses located within the strip development said this week that as far as they have heard, the new owners have no immediate plans to make changes to the property, which is home to more than a dozen businesses, from G’Ma & Pappa’s Biker Apparel shop on the southern end to the Coarsegold Veterinary Hospital on the north.
