Sleek and bright with lots of concrete flooring, this bright Long Island City duplex offers what the listing promises is "a once in a lifetime opportunity." It also happens to be the second most expensive condo on the market in Queens right now. (When compared to the same in Manhattan and Brooklyn, $4 million seems like a downright steal.)
So what do you get for that $4.15 million price tag? A 2,415 square-foot "trophy penthouse" with two bedrooms (convertible to three), three-and-a-half bathrooms, and four (4!) terraces, with stellar city views.
apartment "tranquil sanctuary" opens into a thoroughly modern great room, with concrete slate flooring, a slick contemporary fireplace, and a whole wall of windows, designed to allow "endless sunshine." The open kitchen—no surprise here—is bright and white and stocked with the usual roster of premium appliances: Viking stove, Subzero fridge, 50-bottle wine cooler of unspecified origin, etc. The first floor also has one of the bedrooms, complete with an en-suite bath, and access to two of the four terraces, the larger of which offers a "4-foot-deep swim spa pool," a bar and grill area, and an outdoor shower.
The second floor, accessible by a "beautiful, modern buffed metal handrail and glass staircase," houses "the master suite of one’s dreams." And indeed, it is quite a master suite, with an in-room marble-topped bar, another Subzero fridge, another dishwasher, and another wine cooler. Also on the second floor: his and hers separate bathrooms, a laundry room, two more terraces, and a startling number of closets.
Further sweetening the deal: the purchase price gets you the deeds to two indoor parking spaces and two private storage units. Other perks of life at Casa Vizcaya include a virtual doorman, a gym, a fully furnished roof deck, a Zen garden, and a package room with cold storage for food deliveries.
