Or might it be the city’s finest home auto repair garage? It’s all a question of emphasis in this brand-new Hillendahl Acres (just south of Hammerly Blvd., east of Wirt Rd.) residential listing: The car-repair shop, known to customers for more than 20 years as Palm Motor Company, sits in the back of the almost-half-acre lot and has room for more than a dozen neatly parked cars. The home sits nearer to the street and contains 2 bedrooms. All this (minus the cars) could be yours for the $750,000 asking price. Care for a tour?
It appears to have been redone more recently, but county tax records show the 1,950-or-so-sq.-ft. home predates the repair shop: It was built in 1950, and the 6,000-sq.-ft. column-free space was added in 1979.
The house has its own separate 3 garage spaces, shown at right in the photo below:
Palm Motor first set up shop here in the early nineties.
Visitors to the main house, coming off the main drive, are greeted with this fireplace:
The dining area allows a view to the motor court, so you can see which vehicles are coming or going:
The back side of the fireplace is fed from the kitchen:
This bedroom sits at the far eastern end of the house, with views overlooking the garage entrance (and mirrors helping to catch all the angles even if you’re lying in bed):
If you’d rather not pay attention to the cars outside, there’s also a view directly into the shower:
A separate entrance serves this media room:
A second bedroom looks onto the front gate:
