Old Detroit Auto Shop Becomes a High-Tech Home Marvel
On the outside, this Detroit building looks a lot like it did a century ago when it was one of Detroit's first auto repair shops. But on the inside, it's a much different story.
Unique Style and Then Some
Stepping inside (through either one of this building's front doors), you'll see a luxurious residential space that has been transformed from top to bottom. It boasts more than 2,000 square feet of living space and the large garage door entrance that opens into the home's kitchen is made from repurposed slider doors from a 1955 Detroit Stroh's delivery truck.
Other repurposed materials include tin ceilings in the bathrooms and recycled bricks on the home's outside.
According to the Zillow listing, there's enough room for 30 guests around the kitchen's main island and a high-tech touchless faucet. There's a built-in drainer carved into the granite countertop and removing the island's countertop reveals a hidden shuffleboard court. (And you can keep score on the chalkboard front of the built-in refrigerator.)
Lots of Cool Tech Throughout
The entire home is outfitted with nice tech features like Wifi-enabled laundry appliances, electronic window blinds, and a Samsung SmartThings home automation system. There are heated floors and a 220-volt hookup for electric vehicles.
A Hefty Price
This unique home has two bedrooms (check out the loft area in the pictures below) and two bathrooms. There's a new roof, new walls, ceilings, and flooring throughout. The price tag is hefty - $1.2 million - but have you ever seen a property this unique?
