Whether you’re a car enthusiast or simply adore converted structures with industrial vibes, this reimagined residence in Lyon, France, may be of interest. Tucked away in the city’s bustling seventh arrondissement—close to the central Parc Sergent Blandan—the former garage was renovated in 2017 and now features roughly 2,163 square feet of dreamy interior space.
Upon entry, expansive steel-framed windows and exposed rafters emphasize the structure’s original charm. A cozy mezzanine level can be accessed via a black-metal spiral staircase in the open-plan living area.
The primary suite includes a fully revamped bathroom with a freestanding soaking tub. At the top of another spiral staircase, the loft’s upper level hosts three additional bedrooms—one of which offers direct access to the roof terrace.
The renovated four-bedroom, two-bathroom home retains a strong connection to the building’s past—it even offers a fully equipped mechanic’s workshop complete with a raised car platform. Refurbished cabinetry from the original garage is also used in the kitchen, which features a repurposed bistro bar near the entry to the outdoor courtyard.
"The high-quality renovation, brightness, and volumes are the strengths of this unique property," notes the listing agent. Other notable features include a large cellar, garden, and rooftop terrace. Scroll ahead to see more of the converted residence.
This loft in a former garage in Lyon, France, is currently listed for €945,000 (approximately $1,113,540 USD) by Espaces Atypiques.
