It should come as no surprise that the most expensive home for sale in Queens right now—according to StreetEasy, at least—is in the tony enclave of Malba, situated at the foot of the Bronx-Whitestone Bridge on the East River waterfront. (One ambitious broker once described’ the neighborhood as “the Hamptons of Queens,” which, sure.)
It should also come as no surprise that the house—listed with Ryan Serhant, and asking a whopping $8.795 million—is an enormous single-family property (with McMansiony qualities) built in the 1990s, as is typical of homes in this price range in this particular part of town.
The 12,000-square-foot space—16,000, if you take its full lot into account—comes with seven bedrooms, nine bathrooms, a seven-car driveway (and a three-car garage), two family rooms, a temperature-controlled wine cellar, a wood-fired oven in its second kitchen, an outdoor kitchen, and a 40-foot in-ground pool, and really, that’s just scratching the surface.
It’s all spread out over two floors (plus a fully kitted-out basement), with an enormous backyard as part of the package; alas, there’s no floorplan that we could find, but we’re willing to bet it’s ridiculous. Incredibly, the house seemed to be asking $9.2 million not too long ago—maybe this time around, someone with a penchant for mahogany will be willing to scoop it up.
