No, your eyes are not deceiving you. In a quest to find expensive-ass houses in metro Detroit, we came across this $4 million listing that is actually located within the city limits.

Yup, $4 million. In Detroit. 

2712 Cass Ave., right in the lungs of Midtown, is an eight-bedroom home with four full bathrooms and one half-bath. Built in 1880, the 
3,344-square-foot home boasts 15 rooms, including two living rooms, two full kitchens, and four fireplaces. 

All of that is impressive, but clearly this hefty price tag has more to do with the potential of the house than its current amenities [read: it's right by the new Red Wings Arena].

According to the listing (which was published as follows): 

WANT TO INVEST WHERE DETROIT'S NEW ENTERTAINMENT DISTRICT WILL BE? THE TIME IS NOW!!! This Awesome Property is LOCATED IN THE HEART OF MIDTOWN TO DOWNTOWN DETROIT. Could make a great BED AND BREAKFAST, NIGHT CLUB, RESTAURANT, HIGH RISE HOTEL, OR PARKING STRUCTURE. Located just a few steps from the NEW HOME OF THE DETROIT RED WINGS HOCKEY ARENA. Also, close to the NEW M-1 RAIL LINE, Comerica Park, Ford Field, Fox Theatre, MGM Casino, and major freeways. CURRENTLY A 15 ROOM HISTORIC HOUSE! 4 fireplaces, two living rooms, two full kitchens, 4 full bathrooms and a lav. Sold as-is.
