Big Reveal: $695,000 for a Five-Bed Abode in One of Detroit's Poshest Nabes

New, 17 comments

Curbed readers really hated this week's chosen home. For yesterday's PriceSpotter, readers had to guess the price of this five-bedroom single-family home at the Morgan Waterfront Estates, an area known for housing Detroit's most expensive single-family home currently on the market. Before we discuss the comment section, Curbed first has to give props to a commenter named levanoff for having the closest guess with $723,000. Good job!

For now, here is a quick run down of what readers thought of the listing: "so blah," "so ugly," and "bland." One commenter named Bowser K said, "Houses like these have all the character and charm of a cardboard box," while another named Adverse Domain said, "Everything about the 'details' in this house looks cheap." Is this listing really so bad? What do you think? Last-minute shout out to Commonwealth who wrote this epic:

My three year old can assembly legos with a better sense of proportion than whatever algorithm designed this house. What style are they calling these new types of houses anyway? In all honesty. Is there a term other than McMansion?

Have we all given up?

Is Architecture dead?

Are there [any] institutions that are not failing us!?

Do you agree? Let us know what you think in the comments.
