Must love teak wood

Welcome back to The Six Digit Club, in which we take a look at a newish-to-market listing priced under $1 million, because nice things sometimes come in small packages. Send nominations to the tipline.

A unique Long Island City studio with Balinese-inspired decor is looking for a buyer. The roughly 500-square-foot corner condop has been outfitted with custom finishes that invoke a tropical vibe, like tons of built-in teak wood storage including a bespoke Murphy bed that reveals a space-brightening mirror when pulled down.

Those teak wood finishes extend into the windowed galley kitchen, where green marble countertops continue the apartment’s earthy palette alongside unfussy stainless steel appliances. The teak finishes are also in the bathroom, which looks plucked from an exotic resort.

The only thing that seems to give the apartment’s New York location away are its second floor views onto the neighboring buildings and the concealed, mirror-clad support pillar in the corner of the studio’s main room. (The apartment is one of many in the neighborhood’s CityLights building at 4-74 48th Avenue—hence the pillar.) The apartment is a quick walk from Gantry Plaza State Park and the Vernon Blvd-Jackson Ave 7 stop.

The sunny apartment is on the market with Clayton Gurnett of Halstead for $550,000.

The bathroom has been highly customized and includes green marble countertops.
