The most expensive homes for sale in Detroit, mapped

View as Map

For the latest update of our most expensive listings in Detroit, we’re finding some new options in familiar neighborhoods. Once again, a mega-mansion on Sand Bar Lane takes the top spot, with some old school mansions in Indian Village and Boston Edison also represented.

We didn’t include the top listing in Detroit, which isn’t exactly a house someone would move into. It’s the holdout house by the Little Caesars Arena, which is technically listed under “land for sale” at $4,999,999.

We also didn’t include any condos that aren’t actually ready yet. Many listings from City Modern, Cass + York, and the Saint Charles Residences would also come in on our list if we included them (Note: The first phase of City Modern and the Saint Charles Residences will be available this year). Looking for a condo to move into right now? The Book Cadillac and Willys Overland Lofts have options on our map.

Links to the listing websites can be found underneath each photo.

1. Corktown Show Stopper

Copy Link
2560 Michigan Ave
Detroit, MI 48216

$1,799,999

While this massive remodel is a multi-family home, it's really the main living space that's going to sell it. With 7,500+ square feet and room for a car or two in the living area, it's quite the unique property. Also included? Three smaller rental units. It’s been on the market since December 2016.

2. Boston-Edison Rackham Estate

Copy Link
90 Edison St
Detroit, MI 48202

$1,050,000

We’re a little thrown off by the price on this Boston-Edison estate, built for Horace Rackham, a lawyer who invested early in Ford. The house sits on a half acre near Woodward and it’s in good condition. The house itself has seven bedrooms, three full and two half baths, and beautiful detailing. A carriage house has additional living space and a full kitchen. It listed for over $1 million last summer, perhaps because three other Boston-Edison mansions sold for over $1 million last year.

3. Rivertown Loft

Copy Link
2987 Franklin St
Detroit, MI 48207

$1,250,000

This 4,000-square-foot Rivertown loft has three bedrooms, high end finishes, tech upgrades, and a massive patio with skyline views. More lofts are under construction in this building, but this one is far and away the largest and priciest.

4. Sand Bar Lane Mega-Mansion

Copy Link
18 Sand Bar Ln
Detroit, MI 48214

$2,499,900

Claiming the top spot on our list is the always-for-sale mega-mansion in the Morgan Waterfront Estates. This 14,471-square-foot behemoth sits in a gated community on the Detroit River, close to a decommissioned power plant and a boat graveyard. The big windows have views of Belle Isle, though. You’ll also get six bedrooms, five full and three half baths, 130 feet of water frontage, tons of entertaining space, and three levels of balconies.

5. Palmer Woods Contemporary

Copy Link
19301 Burlington Dr
Detroit, MI 48203

$948,800

This Palmer Woods mansion will have to find a very special new owner. Built in 1979, the design reflects the time period with a bold red kitchen, skylights galore, chandeliers everywhere, and so many different kinds of bathrooms. It was designed by San Diego architect Mark Steele, and reflects a California contemporary way of life. You won’t see another house like this in Detroit.

6. Indian Village Update

Copy Link
2415 Burns Ave
Detroit, MI 48214

$849,000

This Indian Village brick home listed back in January and while it’s a lovely house and move-in ready, the price seemed a bit on the high side for what it offered. It’s coming in at 5,200 square feet with six bedrooms, four full and two half baths, butter yellow walls, and a kitchen that looks out of place.

7. Willys Loft

Copy Link
444 W Willis St
Detroit, MI 48201

$674,900

A glam corner loft at Willys recently sold for $828,000. This 1,800-square-foot corner loft is a little more raw, with cement floors; exposed brick, ceiling, and ductwork; and newer cabinetry and fixtures in the kitchen and bathrooms. It has two beds, two baths, indoor parking, and a balcony overlooking Midtown.

8. Sherwood Forest Castle

Copy Link
19541 Renfrew Rd
Detroit, MI 48221

$625,000

This 5,000-square-foot Sherwood Forest home has been in the same family for 50 years. Sure, it could use some updating, but it has incredible curb appeal, a speakeasy in the basement, and so many original details. It’s everything we love about old Detroit homes from this time period.

Copy Link
1783 Iroquois Ave
Detroit, MI 48214

$614,900

This classic Indian Village home was designed by Albert Kahn. Inside, find 4,200 square feet, with five bedrooms, four and a half baths, two sunrooms, a wood-paneled den, multiple fireplaces, and a commercial kitchen.
