HGTV's Nicole Curtis opens doors at newly-renovated Ransom Gillis House

- A big crowd lined up to tour the newly-renovated Ransom Gillis House Sunday. HGBT's "Rehab Addict" Nicole Curtis opened up the doors to the 139-year-old Venetian Gothic home that was once crumbling.

The home is in Detroit's Brush Park, at the corner of John R and Alfred streets not too far from where Woodward Avenue intersects I-75.

Curtis hired some help from a crew in Flint to do some of the work. Quicken Loans also helped fund the renovation. The project was also in partnership with Detroit-based Brush Park Development. The group is dedicated to developing an 8-acre section of Brush Park.

The mansion has been turned into a duplex and the units are expected to be rented out within the next couple months.
