Dating back to 1904 as one of the first car shops in Detroit, this incredible 2,050-square-foot space was transformed into a modern private residence with two bedrooms after a top-to-bottom re-build, including new systems, roof, walls, floor and the creative use of interesting, reused materials like tin ceilings in the bathrooms, slider doors from a local 1955 Detroit Stroh’s delivery truck; and rescued brick found stacked outside the building. The beautiful high-end, high-tech entertaining kitchen–that fits 30 people around the main island–features endless list of thoughtful details, from a custom faucet with touchless sensors to a drainboard carved directly into the granite, as well as an imaginative island that doubles as a shuffle-board court when you remove the wood countertop (need to see it to believe it). Keep score on the chalkboard door of the built-in fridge.
The front windows are custom designed and tinted for max safety and privacy, and state-of-the-art technology abounds: individually powered doors roll open in two seconds and quickly closes with laser detection; a pre-wired 220v pipe designed for use of electric vehicle charging; heated floors (heated with a controlled recycled water system); windows covered by remote powered electric shades from Levolor; wifi-enabled Samsung washer and dryer; and the whole-building Smartthings app to control lighting annotations, AC/ Heat, music, Alexa integration and Ring doorbell video. This incredible space sits directly on Corktown’s Trumbull Avenue and less than a block from Folk, Alpino, Bearded Lady, Spectacle Society, Mink, Mama Coo’s Boutique and Metaphysica, as well as easy walkability to the whole of historic Corktown, as well as downtown and the new Southwest Greenway and Roosevelt Park.
