The Villages

The Villages offer are unique smattering of lifestyle and landscape; ranging from mansion-lined streets to high-rise condos to modern lofts, to apartments, to affordable rental properties. The Villages are home to a quaint and quirky cross-section of professionals, families and artists. New retail and restaurant developments, proximity to beautiful Belle Isle and the ever-popular Detroit Yacht Club, make this area highly desirable.

Originally designed for automakers, attorneys, lumber barons and captains of finance and commerce, featured styles are reminiscent of the Romanesque, Tudor Revival, Federal, Georgian, Colonial Revival and Arts and Crafts movements.
