Cindy Pasky and her husband, Paul Huxley, get bragging rights by spending big bucks to own a big space with panoramic vistas of downtown Detroit.

Kirk Pinho of Crain's Detroit Business, who just spotted the purchase of a three-story condo atop the Westin Book Cadillac hotel/residential redevelopment, says it is "Detroit's most expensive single-family home sale recorded in more than a quarter-century." His knowledgeable numbers-crunching estimates the December sales price at $3,537,000.

The purchase price was not disclosed but Crain's calculated the purchase price based on state and county real estate transfer taxes and deed recording fees publicly listed on the Wayne County Register of Deeds website. ...

When the three-story, 5,100-square-foot condo hit the market in [April] 2019, it was the most expensive single-family residential listing ever at $4.9 million. ... It has three bedrooms, three full bathrooms and three half-baths

Pasky is founder, president and chief executive of Strategic Staffing Solutions, a 31-year-old global IT consulting and business services corporation based on West Grand Boulevard. Huxley is its chief financial officer.

Their Shelby Street residence on Floors 29, 30 and 31 has 30-foot ceilings, 360-degree views (photos below), Carrara marble flooring on the first level, hardwood on the second and third floors, a Jacuzzi, huge walk-in closets and fireplaces in the master suite and living room.

Pinho quotes a Realtor, Lyndsey Sass of Re/Max in Dearborn Heights, as saying this "one-of-a-kind condo ...  maybe [is] not the most sound investment opportunity, we have to remember that homes are where people live, and everyone's priorities are different."

The seller was Dr. Kathleen Yaremchuk of Henry Ford Health System, according to Pinho. She took it off the market at start of 2020 and sold it six months ago for nearly 28 percent less than her first asking price. 

Gallery from Berskhire Hathaway Home Services (2019):

Master bedroom has dual views of the cityscape and no window treatments.

Dining room views are light-splashed by day and twinkling after dark.

An urban-gazing perch overlooks Washington Boulevard, Michigan Avenue and beyond.

Even a guest bedroom has an "oh my" view that needs no privacy blinds, curtains or drapes. (Sunrise wakeup seems likely, though.)

Windows, windows everywhere.
