This unique property in Detroit is now up for sale, offering a remarkable transformation from its original purpose as a pharmacy and later a gym. The exterior of the building, constructed in 1960 with brick walls, glass block windows, and two large steel garage doors, presents a traditional facade that contrasts sharply with its modern interior living space.
Located on Puritan Avenue in Detroit’s Martin Park neighborhood, amidst commercial buildings, churches, parks, and vacant lots, this property has undergone extensive renovations over the past two years, resulting in a stunning loft-style industrial home. The 4,500-square-foot space is currently listed at $799,500 and is being represented by Christina Gennari of KW Domain in Birmingham.
Upon entering, one is greeted by an open concept living area featuring high ceilings, exposed brick walls, ductwork, and striking metals and epoxy flooring, creating a unique blend of character and modern finishes. This spacious dwelling comprises two bedrooms, one bathroom, a living room, dining room, kitchen, family room, and several large flexible areas, offering versatile possibilities for residential or commercial purposes.
The garage area provides enclosed parking for up to five cars and includes additional storage space. Notably, the interior of one steel door displays an impressive mural of the late hip-hop icon, Tupac Shakur, masterfully painted by Desiree Kelly—an award-winning artist and Detroit native renowned for her exceptional street art.
The kitchen is equipped with an island featuring seating, sleek stainless-steel appliances, and black cabinets, while the adjacent dining area is elevated on a platform and features an electric fireplace. A flight of stairs near the open kitchen/dining space leads to a lofted family room, adding another dimension to the living area. Below the family room, a generous office/flex space enhances the versatility of the property.
The primary bedroom is a private retreat with an enclosed design, a spacious walk-in closet, and stairs that lead to a carpeted bedroom above. The bathroom exudes a spa-like ambiance with a Euro-glass shower, a soaking tub, and a modern double sink vanity.
Towards the front section of the building, abundant natural light fills the space, illuminating a second bedroom and a large living room/flex room. Additionally, a laundry room with a sink and countertop is conveniently included.
Furthermore, the sale of the property encompasses a fenced lot adjacent to the building, offering added space and potential.
Originally listed at $850,000, this remarkable Detroit property presents a captivating blend of history and contemporary design, providing an extraordinary opportunity for those seeking a distinctive living experience.
