In New York or LA, this 2-bedroom, 2-bath penthouse loft would go for millions. Here, the place can be had for a mere $599K. With 1700 square feet, the bi-level penthouse has dramatic views of Detroit, both of the city skyline and of gothic mansions in Brush Park. The place has a veritable laundry list of great amenities: walk-in shower, tankless on-demand hot water, a double-oven, golden granite kitchen counters and a balcony.

When we say "walk-in," it's no exaggeration—there's enough room in the massive enclosure with its rain head and hand-held spray options that you could stroll through its glass doors three abreast. Which sounds like a solid plan, come to think of it. Originally a hotel designed by Louis Kamper, the building opened in 1924. With the M-1 Rail opening just steps from the front door, this place blends the best of old and new Detroit. And if you're not that wild about public transit, never fear—there's secure parking here, too.
