  • A seven-acre town 50 miles south of Nashville is on sale for $725,000.

  • The town has four former stores, a barn, and a creek.

  • The real-estate broker said some people had likened it to the fictional Schitt's Creek.

A seven-acre town in central Tennessee has hit the market for $725,000.

Water Valley in Maury County, near the Natchez Trace Parkway, has four former stores built pre-1900, a barn, and "Mulberry trees galore," per the listing by real-estate broker Christa Swartz.

Two of the buildings have updated wiring and plumbing, and could be used for commercial services, housing, or a B&B, per the listing.

The town also comes with a creek. Flyover footage of Water Valley is available on YouTube.

Swartz told Fox Television Stations that she had received multiple offers on the town, and that both locals and from Hollywood producers had inquired.

"I am inundated with calls from all over the United States," she told Fox, including one day where she received 93 calls.

"We've had a couple of calls from Hollywood asking if they might buy the whole town to use as a movie set," she told Nashville station News Channel 5. "It would really strip this of the reality of the history and make it more of a stage rather than something we preserve as the history of Tennessee."

She told News Channel 5 that some of the people who spoke to her about the town mentioned the Schitt's Creek television series, in which a family loses all their money and relocates to a small town they once purchased as a joke.

Swartz told Fox that four relatives had bought the town in the 1970s. She told that they wanted to sell it to someone who would preserve the town and keep all the buildings.

"You could totally be your own mayor," Swartz told Fox. "You would also be your own everything else though, too ... so the cleaner and the mayor and the barkeeper. You could be the antique store owner."

"You get to make the decisions and make the rules for your own little town if you get Water Valley," she added.

County officials would handle the infrastructure, such as roads and water, Swartz told Fox.

The average house price in Tennessee is $472,000, per the Federal Housing Finance Agency's house price index, which is based on sales and appraisals in the second quarter of 2021.

Swartz told Fox that most of the original Water Valley was incorporated into nearby Williamsport, and that what remains was no longer formally recognized as a town because its post office had closed.
