The next fixer upper for HGTV’s “Rehab Addict” has been found. And it’s located in Detroit’s own Brush Park. The historic home, built in 1876, has at vacant for years. This will no longer be the case as Nicole Curtis works to revive the dilapidated, yet still beautiful, Detroit home.

From the Detroit Free Press article.

Nicole Curtis, star of HGTV’s “Rehab Addict,” has announced her latest fixer-upper: a beautiful but rundown 1876 house in Detroit’s Brush Park neighborhood.

After eyeing projects in Brush Park for a while, Curtis told WXYZ-TV that “I think we’ve finally found a way to make the numbers work.” You can watch the interview right here.

The house was designed by the architectural firm Brush & Mason for Ransom Gillis, a wholesale dry goods merchant. Henry T. Brush designed a number of homes in late-19th-century Detroit, as well as the city’s first library. His assistant, a young George D. Mason, would go on to become one of Detroit’s most prolific architects, designing everything from the Masonic Temple to the Detroit Yacht Club to the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island.
