Despite its proximity to the river, Detroit doesn’t really have many houses that have water frontage. The Gold Coast along East Jefferson has many condos and apartment buildings. Jefferson-Chalmers has some canal-adjacent houses. And the newer builds at the odd Morgan Waterfront Estates have some river frontage. It’s unusual to see a house like this new listing—built in 2000—at the gated Shorepointe Estates. While the shoreline itself is rocky, the views are pretty great. And at 4,200 square feet, there’s a lot of room to spread out. It’s listing for $999,995.
The house boasts gorgeous water views from all the living spaces, with a telescope on an upper floor to see what our Canadian neighbors are up to. A huge kitchen has ample storage, peninsula seating, and a breakfast nook surrounded by windows. Also find Pewabic tile in the entry, built-ins throughout, water views from the master bath, a big patio, and an attached garage. What can $1 million buy in Detroit? Usually a big loft or an old mansion. This is yet another choice for that crowd. It’s listed through Joy Santiago at Dwellings Unlimited.
