This 8-year-old contemporary brick townhouse is located in Canton, Mich., roughly 30 miles west of Detroit and 18 miles east of Ann Arbor, Mich.

"The layout's nice, the finishes are nice, and it's mostly brick -- which you don't always find" in the area, says Eric Kostoff, real estate consultant for RichRealty in Plymouth, Mich.

It has two bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths, a bonus room and a finished basement, he says. The main level features oak floors. And the kitchen, which has hardwood cabinets and granite countertops, opens to the dining room.

The master suite has a marbled bathroom with a jetted tub, separate tiled shower and adjacent media room. It also has an upstairs laundry room. "It's quite a layout," Kostoff says.

The finished basement has laminate floors, exposed brick and rafters, plus halogen lighting "for an industrial look," he says.

The 1,726-square-foot home also has a two-car garage. A $265 monthly fee covers water, outdoor maintenance and trash collection.

With the median price in Canton at about $160,000, homes in the $175,000 to $178,000 range most often appeal to two-income first-time buyers, move-up buyers and corporate transfers, he says.
