Whether you call it a ‘barndominium’ or a ‘barndo’, a Hartland Township steel and tin house for sale is a unique place to live.
The three story home is located at 2360 Cullen Road near Highland Road and US-23 in Livingston County. It has a mailing address in Howell and is located approximately 9 miles north of Brighton and approximately 12 miles west of Milford.
Built in 2016, the 4,700 square foot home sits on more than five acres of land. The asking price is $ 960,000.
John Luke, associate broker of RE / MAX Platinum in Hartland and who put the house up for sale, said so-called “barndominiums” like this have been around for years on the West Coast and are becoming popular in the Midwest.
âIt’s kind of a craze right now,â he said. “You can have a place where you can both live and work.”
He said that this house has a few things that make it stand out. âDesign, functionality, maintenance free appearance and flexibility make this house unique,â ââsaid Luke.
Luke said the owner of the house, a collector and automaker, had also built and designed with his passion in mind. âHe could have up to 12 cars in his building, all heated or cooled,â he said.
He said that in addition to having the exterior that never needs maintenance, the house can house a small contractor’s equipment, a sportsman’s toys, or a home’s tools and workshop. ‘an amateur. âThere is a lot of flexibility there,â the broker said. “It’s so versatile and fun.”
The house has three bedrooms, five bathrooms, a living room, a dining room, a chef’s kitchen and a cellar for men or women. The Man Cave has televisions, a shuffleboard, and video games, Luke said.
The first floor consists of a master bedroom with bathroom, a large room, a dining area, a kitchen and a laundry room. The living room has a 30 foot ceiling and the kitchen has a commercial stove and oven in addition to high end appliances.
The heated garage for four cars is also on the same floor, connected to the house by a hallway between the living room and the kitchen. It has 2,500 square feet of heated and cooled warehouse space, making it perfect for car storage. It also has an attic where cars can be stored. Each of the four garage doors has a power motor and separate battery powered backups.
The ground floor, which covers over 8,000 square feet, is heated and covered with a metallic epoxy and urethane coating.
On the upper level there are two further bedrooms which have their own full bathrooms like the master bedroom below. Both bedrooms have maple hardwood floors. A lounge area is also located on the same floor.
An open area is on the third floor.
Outside, the house has a 40ft by 16ft patio with heating coils embedded in its concrete, as does the concrete deck in front of the garage and front porch. Luke said there’s never a need to shovel snow.
It also has an outside wood-fired boiler that can heat the whole house on its own or supplement the house’s natural gas furnace.
In addition, all windows and doors in the house are made by Pella. The windows have built-in blinds.
âIt has a lot of features that make it attractive,â Luke said. âThe detail work is phenomenal. But I think the # 1 thing is flexibility of use. It’s a beautiful, entertainment-oriented living situation. If I won the lottery, I would buy this house. I really think so.”
Another selling point: the house is located next to a golf course. âYou can pick up your golf cart out the back door and go out onto the course,â he said.
Luke said he thinks the house would be perfect for a car collector because there is room to work on the cars and store them. âIt’s just the way it was designed,â he said. âIt’s really for the detail-oriented person. You look at him and you’re like ‘Wow, he really thought it all out.’
