Impressive Penthouse Makes a Case For $600K Price Tag

New, 12 comments

Perched on an upper level of the venerable Garden Court Apartments, a giant condo has the square footage of a suburban home and the price of something even bigger. The four-bedroom "penthouse" just hit the market today with an ask of $600K, making it one of the priciest buys in Detroit.

As an Albert Kahn-designed building on Jefferson Avenue, Garden Court has been a swanky address since it opened in 1915. While $600K is a lot to ask within the Detroit market, "luxurious" might be a legitimate descriptor for this sky palace. The foyer makes for a dramatic entrance, the kitchen is full of granite, and the three full bathrooms have heated floors.

With a separate dining room, library, and gymnasium-sized living room, the apartment is unlikely to ever feel cramped. On the off chance it does, one can always visit Garden Court's roof deck for views of downtown, Belle Isle, and what's actually a really good dollar store next door. The buyer might come to rely on it after paying the $843 monthly condo fee.
