The whole idea of Detroit real estate is often misunderstood by those of us who live in other parts of Michigan and out of state. Most people think downtown is nothing but abandoned, leveled, or dilapidated homes, but there are some beautiful properties if you care enough to look.

When it comes to moving into any new living space, it is all about location, location, location. And with condos, convenience is a big plus.

With pristine hardwood floors, a gas fireplace in the living room, and unique wood trim and beams to accent the dining area, this place just might have everything.

The ceramic tiled spa-like bathroom with a walk-in shower is reminiscent of an all-inclusive resort.

The unit also includes a private 1.5 car garage, which is pretty spacious for a condo.

Plus, this unit is in close proximity to many sought-after attractions in the area like the QLine Ferry Street Station, The Detroit Institute of Arts, Charles H. Wright Museum, Detroit Historical Museum, the Science Center, Wayne State University, and more.

From the photos, it seems to be located in a quaint neighborhood, but is still close to Midtown's best.

And Not a Bad Price

This beautiful condo is listed for just $225,000. Between the location, amenities, and design, this place is certainly a hidden gem in Detroit.

Check out these pictures and feel free to decorate it in your mind.
