Our semi-regular feature, Monday Mansion, examines the most interesting mega homes on the market in the far reaches of New York. Have a listing in mind that we're missing? Tell us about it. To the outer boroughs we go!
To call this home in Little Neck, Queens "colonial", as its listing does, is like calling Port Authority an inspired work of gothic architecture. From the minty lime green walls to its exhaustive catalog of chandeliers, and not to forget its "banquet-sized dining room," the home at 39-05 234th Street is perhaps anything but colonial. What the $3,999,888 home is, however, is audacious. It has nine bedrooms, five-and-a-half bathrooms, and a whole lot of explaining to do.
