Here's a garage conversion that lacks gritty polish, but retains its real grit. That's mostly because it appears to still work as a commercial garage. The loft above it is not the world's most gorgeous home, but it has the potential to be made over into something else.
The asking price does seem a bit high, especially when far more polished converted garages have asked a lot less. However, the selling point here appears to be that the conversion is not yet complete: there's still space to operate a business on the ground floor. At least whoever buys this place will never want for parking.
Size: The listing doesn't say, but very large is a safe assumption.
Amenities include: Space for untold numbers of cars, exposed beams, hardwood floors, a juliet balcony, and a high ceiling.
Asking Price: $995,000
