"Just Gorgeous"

What more could you want when you live here? This is an area of town that truly has it all! When you go through here you see some of the most gorgeous homes around. They are well kept, have gorgeous yards, and are like something you might see out of a storybook.

This is a neighborhood with rich history and so the community has stayed intact and worked hard to keep that going strong. The neighborhood is very tight knit and it shows that people really take pride in their homes and in living here. This is a well kept secret as some people within Detroit don't even know that this beautiful area of town exists.

It is admittedly a rather expensive area of town but many would argue that you are getting a lot for your money. You get waterfront property, are close to the downtown area and to other preferred spots within town like Indian village, and you have many amenities right nearby. You have parks, culture, and a great sense of community.

If you want to be a part of things in Detroit and have the money for a beautiful home like this, then this neighborhood should be top on your list of places to check into.

"High class neighborhood down by the river"

This one of the areas that people who want to just tour the historic neighborhoods down by the river check out. We used to drive through here during the summer.

Some of the most classic, stately looking homes in Detroit are in this neighborhood. In fact most of the neighborhoods close by has expensive homes like these. These areas are just beautiful to drive through. All you see are large manicured lawns, pricey cars, and stunning homes. The houses in this area are worth at least several hundred thousand dollars. There are a couple of high rise apartments around here as well, with great views of the river and across to Canada. Buses do run up and down Jefferson, but judging from all the nice cars I have seen through here, they don't ride the bus much.

This neighborhood is not very wide, only about 4 blocks across. On both sides you have yachts docked, surely owned by some of the locals. There are also several parks off the water and of course downtown Detroit is right down the street.

This is a pricey neighborhood, and everyone will not be able to afford living here. But if you have the means, I would definitely investigate this one.
