A standalone house in New York City for less than $1 million? It’s possible...in Bayside Hills, Queens. The dream is alive with the new listing for a Tudor-style three-bedroom, two-bathroom house at 48-12 217th Street.
The property oozes charm. A turreted entrance opens onto a living room with leaded glass windows, a wood-trimmed ceiling, and a wood-burning fireplace topped by an original plaster crest.
Two steps up sits a proper dining room decked out in refined wood paneling and topped by a Tiffany chandelier, per the brokerbabble. The eat-in kitchen, however, could use some work.
All three bedrooms are found on the house’s upper floor. Two of those bedrooms (one fully decked in wood paneling of the 1960s variety) share a full bathroom off the hall. The master bedroom comes with an en suite bathroom, a rarity for older homes.
The finished basement offers up a den with a unique focal point in a retro conical hearth, as well as a laundry room and storage.
The house comes with its own garage, and parking for four or five cars. It also has both a front and back yard, albeit both small. Does this sound like the dream? The house with “unrivaled suburban tranquility within the bounds of New York City” is on the market for $988,000 with Compass.
