Detroit House Hunting: Corktown's $1.2 million auto shop
A Corktown car garage built in the early 1900s that's been transformed into a lavish living space is now on the market for $1.2 million.
Driving the news: More attainable homes are typically highlighted in our recurring real estate feature, but this restored relic is a must-see.
- The overhaul incorporated salvaged doors from a Stroh's delivery truck, tin ceilings in the bathroom and a kitchen island that converts to a shuffleboard table.
What they're saying: Owner Trevor Greene renovated the property in 2019 with touches of automotive history throughout and an emphasis on open space.
- "There's a lot of love, fashion and design put into the detail," Greene told the Free Press.
Details: Two bedrooms, two bathrooms and 2,050 square feet.
- The roof, walls, floor, electrical, plumbing and HVAC systems have all been redone.
- High-tech conveniences are found throughout — including a garage door with laser detection, heated floors and remote-powered window shades.
Between the lines: Greene, who works in vehicle design, teamed on the project with Push Design, an architecture firm that's worked on other Corktown properties.
💭 Joe's thought bubble: This is the kind of place I'll buy after I win the lottery and go on a global real estate shopping spree.
