$1M NYC Tour Part 3- “Live Like a King in Queens”


Share

In the city in 15mins via LIRR

The tour continues, if you missed it try here and here for the first two installments.

Now if you needed to catch up to speed on what this tour is all about, let’s keep it moving. This is something to think about if you like parks. Queens has more total acreage of park space than any part of the region. If you are looking for space, there is nothing in the city that can compare to what I found in Forest Hills for under a million dollars. This is a super safe and beautiful area with old world charm in Forest Hills Gardens where there are tons of Tudor style homes.

For those that don’t know, this is the most scenic and serviceable area in Queens as you have multiple transportation options such as E/F/G/R trains, the Long Island Railroad, taxi services and bus routes a plenty. The trip into Manhattan is easier than some parts of Washington Heights and the area is much nicer overall.  I actually will start a mini tour based off of this area as I found perhaps some of the lowest priced starter apartments in this area of the city that totally trump ANYTHING in North Manhattan.

Co-op

$599,000 1573sf  4BR/3Bath There is actually a place that just hit the market that is going for $849K and sounds like comparable square footage, but why break the bank!With no floor plan or pictures to examine, it may as well be a pipe dream.  Seeing is believing! This extremely rare, four bedroom, three bathroom Forest Hills residence thrills from the floor to the ceiling with its country home feel, windowed dining room alcove, spacious living room, hardwood floors and lots of closet space. The kitchen has granite countertops, brand new stainless steel appliances, designer cabinetry and ceramic tile. The master bedroom features an ensuite windowed bathroom, alcove sitting area and a large walk-in closet with a California closet system. The second bedroom easily transitions into a library or office. One of the three bathrooms includes a bathtub and separate shower stall. The six-story, post-war co-op building has an elevator, laundry room, parking garage and intercom system. Pets are welcome board approval. For the pictures (proof) slide over here.

Condo

$875,000 1788sf Penthouse Designed by famed designer Andres Escobar, this penthouse offers contemporary living in a luxurious environment. The spacious lay out is complemented by floor to ceiling windows, top of the line fixtures and appliances. Take a look at the floor plan and observe the TWO large private terraces! There is healthy mix of local retail along Austin Street to keep you busy and the property footprint is equidistant between both airports for the constant traveler. Enjoy unprecedented amenities including Shuttle transportation, fitness center, cinema, children’s play room, owners lounge, and 24 Hr Doorman to name a few.  Slide right in here!
