Nolan “Jack” Didion helped design early Corvettes for Chevrolet, so it’s not a big leap to think that such a talented man would be capable of designing his own home, too.

The result of his architectural work – his own 3,930-square-foot mid-century modern home, located at 2525 Marais Ave., Royal Oak, Michigan – is up for sale at the asking price of $1.3 million.

Listing agent Nancy Robinson of Century 21 Curran & Oberski says the home is “one of the coolest” she’s come across during her 25-year career.

The three bedroom/three bath home, built in 1952, features two cube-shaped buildings wrapped in wood siding and linked by a courtyard to provide seamless indoor and outdoor spaces, as commonly found in mid-century design.

The current owners bought the house from Didion in 2015 and have spent the past six years restoring “every inch,” Robinson says.

“They even went to local antiques shops and hunted down some of the original artifacts of the house – lighting fixtures, shelving, and fireplace equipment,” she says.

The kitchen – updated with state-of-the-art cabinets and appliances – has a spectacular view of Marias Park, and throughout the rest of the interior, Robinson says “truly every surface has been enhanced and updated in such a way that the original home has been made better.”

The exterior – including the inground pool, decking, roof, siding, and beautifully restored atrium – has also been meticulously updated, according to Robinson.

“You may never see such a complete and true renovation,” she says. “The epitome of MCM Detroit Design, this is a lovely one-of-a-kind home that could never be recreated – owning it will be the reward of a lifetime.”
