Idyllic Queens mansion with World’s Fair ties wants $2.3M

New, 3 comments

The massive home comes with a huge yard and lots of vintage charm

The brokerbabble for this idyllic Queens Tudor is a little over the top—promising "the best of yesterday which people want but can’t get today," and "magnificent one of a kind, museum quality." But the place is loaded with original details "lovingly preserved by one family for over 80 years," and indeed, it is a beauty.

Designed by architect Angelo Paretta—who also did the Fulton Street Fish Market, among other projects—it’s hard to know quite where to start the property’s many vintage charms, but notable highlights include stained glass windows, decorate hardwood floors, and "wood details taken from the English Pavilion of the 1939 World’s Fair." That is cool.

Listed at $2.3 million, the 2,140-square-foot Murray Hill home comes with plenty of outdoor space, too: it’s nestled on a pleasantly green triple-wide corner lot, ideal for gardeners, children, and golden retrievers.
