Queens’s second-priciest condo is a $4.15M Long Island City penthouse

New, 2 comments

The contemporary apartment at Casa Vizcaya has four terraces, two wine coolers, and tons of light

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.

The 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.
