Welcome to a semi-regular feature, Price Points, in which we pick a relatively low asking price and a type of apartment, then scour StreetEasy to find the best available options around the city. Today's task: Queens two-bedrooms asking $600,000 or less.
Last week we took ourselves to task searching for Brooklyn one-bedrooms that are on the market for $600,000 or less. This week, we wanted to one-up that effort by scouting out comparable two-bedrooms in Brooklyn’s less pricey neighbor to the north. The results of that effort are below. (Don’t forget to vote for which you’d choose!)
↑ Nestled in the landmark historic district of Jackson Heights, this two-bedroom co-op maintains tons of vintage detail. Rounded arches, a checkered black and white kitchen floor, and tin ceilings give the 1,100-square-foot co-op a homey feel. The apartment’s on the market for $579,000, and includes access to the co-op’s private garden. [Floorplan]
↑ Beachfront living is probably not the first thing that comes to mind when thinking about Queens, but Rockaway offers up just that. Here, $549,000 buys a new two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo with ocean views from every room. Other perks include an en suite master bathroom, master walk-in closet, Poggenpohl cabinetry in the kitchen, and best yet, a covered terrace overlooking the beach. Downside: it takes about an hour and a half to get to Times Square. [Floorplan]
↑ This two-bedroom, one-bathroom condo in the Ditmars-Steinway section of Astoria is a short walk to the Ditmars Boulevard N/W station. On the market for $489,000, the petite but nicely renovated apartment includes two bedrooms that can fit more than just a bed, and a dishwasher in the kitchen. The bathrooms go unpictured, but have also been updated according to the listing.
↑ Prices in the Hunters Point section of Long Island City are rising quickly, but this two-bedroom, one-bathroom condop just ekes in to this round-up with its $600,000 price point (down from $690,000.) The apartment offers up some East River views—albeit obstructed—and the finishes here are uninspired, but it’s location can’t be beat. [Floorplan]
↑ In Kew Gardens, $459,000 buys a sunny two-bedroom, two-bathroom with an open layout and updated kitchen. The apartment’s large enough that it can be converted to three-bedrooms. This co-op comes with a full-time doorman, a gym, central air, a roof sun deck, communal laundry on each floor, and a parking garage, although that’s likely available with an additional fee.
