For $429K, A Queens House With a Speakeasy-Like Basement

New, 8 comments

Have you ever considered moving to Laurelton, Queens? (Hint: it's near JFK Airport.) You might after getting a peek at this three-bedroom townhouse, built in that charmingly retro Tudor style you see all over outer Queens. The 1,500-square-foot home, recently listed for only $429,000, is full of quirky details (the listing compares it to "an old English estate in the countryside"), including dark-wood paneling throughout, stained-glass windows in the bathroom, an adorable corner fireplace, and—the pièce de résistance—a wood-paneled basement with a bar that's straight out of our vintage speakeasy fantasies. Adding to that countryside feel: 2,000 square feet of outdoor space, including a leafy backyard. Laurelton, here we come. [h/t 6sqft]
