This 121-year-old farmhouse in Clarkston features marble from Detroit’s Hudson building and a full-blown chapel


Remember Donny and Marie Osmond? Who could forget their feathered hair, white teeth, and matching sequined cumberbunds? Well, like them, this 121-year-old multi-barn farmhouse in Clarkston is a little bit country and a little bit Detroit rock 'n' roll — all for $699,900.

Described as a “unique property opportunity for art lovers, car enthusiasts, or hobbyists” (we would like to add “cultists” because, well, you'll see), this property, built and designed by Paul Gonzalez, offers three separate barns on a 2.11-acre lot with a grand total of 4,620 square feet of living/praying/cult stuff space. The wood-heavy main farmhouse features 3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, vaulted ceilings, french doors, and a few majorly cool touches from Detroit.

First, there are stained glass windows from Detroit churches, lamp lights from the original Rouge River Bridge, and chandeliers from old hotels. One of the barns also features marble flooring from Detroit's Hudson's building. The “grand barn” which connects to the home has the potential to transform into “the talk-of-the-town rec room,” per the listing, and the gray barn has electricity and heat. The small red barn is ready for water and electric hookups.
