With news that the most expensive listing in Detroit’s history was taken off the market, it’s time to update our list of the most expensive homes for sale right now.

In 2019, just two homes in Detroit sold for over $1 million. As of today, there’s no less than 10 homes for sale at that price or higher. And it’s an interesting mix of homes: There’s a handful of big historic mansions, a couple of townhomes in new developments, downtown penthouses, warehouse lofts, and more.

Do you think these residences will sell as homebuying season heats up? Take a look at what’s on the market and let us know.

1. Bagley Mansion

Copy Link
2921 E Jefferson Ave
Detroit, MI 48207

$3.27 million

Built for John N. Bagley, son of former Michigan governor John J. Bagley, the 8,495-square-foot French Renaissance Revival was finished over 130 years ago. The enormous brick mansion has some impressive stained-glass windows, a giant turret, stone carvings, and six fireplace mantels designed by Julius Melchers.

It’s an impressive home, but many took issue with the white-painted wood inside.

2. S. S. Kresge Mansion

70 W Boston Blvd
Detroit, MI 48202

$3.25 million

At over 20,000 square feet, it might be the largest residence in Detroit. There’s also 14 bedrooms, 10 fireplaces, garage space for nine cars, six full bathrooms, two carriage houses with their own apartments, all on an almost four acre property that takes up two-thirds of the block.

The Kresge Mansion has been on the market since June last year without a price reduction.

3. Book Cadillac penthouse

1114 Washington Blvd
Detroit, MI 48226

$2.7 million

Penthouses in the Book Cadillac are expensive. This 2,900-square-foot unit, which occupies the 29th and 30th floors of the historic downtown building, offers impressive 360-degree views of the city. There’s also a unique second-floor entertainment loft accessible by a custom Italian spiral staircase.

4. Frederick J. Fisher Mansion

54 Arden Park Blvd
Detroit, MI 48202

$2 million

Perhaps our favorite listing at the moment, this stunning mansion in Arden Park is still filled with period details from when it was built in 1917. Take a look at the limestone exterior, Pewabic tiles, masterful woodwork and metalwork, stained and leaded glass, panel paintings on the ceilings and walls.

It originally listed for $2.17 million, but got a price cut in November.

5. Unfinished penthouse in the Franklin Lofts

Copy Link
2987 Franklin St
Detroit, MI 48207

$1.9 million

This 4,042-square-foot penthouse in an old warehouse near the riverfront has lots of potential, but you’ll have to build it out after the purchase (it’s unclear how much of that cost will be paid for by the developers). There’s also an impressive 2,500 square feet of deck space being marketed as “perfect for big parties.”
