The Pitch: Two-bedroom, one-bath apartment on top floor of a pre-war, elevator co-op in Jackson Heights, Queens. Completely restored and updated in 2007, this 1100 square foot home has an all-new kitchen and bathroom, as well as new electrical and plumbing throughout, replastered walls and ceilings, refinished hardwood floors, a working woodburning fireplace and granite countertops. Exposures in all four directions — along with 11 windows throughout the apartment — mean a tremendous amount of light and ventilation. Bonus sunroom off of dining room provides a real workspace separate from the rest of the apartment.
There are also six closets and basement storage (pending waiting list). Residents have access to a private garden and basement laundry machines. A live-in super maintains facilities, provides general handyman services and will accept packages. The building is within a five-minute walk to six subway lines, as well as express bus service. Local elementary schools were graded "A" by NYC Department of Education. This apartment is being sold by the owner; for more information or to schedule a visit, email.
