This iconic Chatham property has been many things over its life including a bike shop, auto parts store, and gas station. Today it serves as a private garage. The structure is almost identical in its footprint and design but that is where the similarities stop. The two-story section of the garage is home to a chef’s kitchen, a billiard table, and a wet bar. The second floor has two offices, one of which has a picture window that looks over their car collection. The basement features a custom brick wine cellar with a sink made from a wine barrel as well as a tasting room with a table fabricated by local artisans. Custom oak barn doors separate the kitchen area from the garage. Giant oak trusses support the roof structure. The ceiling of the garage is covered in wood paneling.
