Sunny Jackson Heights co-op with a working dumbwaiter wants $948,500

A 3-bedroom “residential oasis” in Queens

“Prepare to be blown away,” warns the brokerbabble ” for this top-floor “residential oasis” at Hawthorne Court Cooperative in Jackson Heights. And it’s true: the stately 3-bedroom, 2-bath co-op has an awful lot going for it, including the price tag. The place is currently listed for $948,500, and it’s accessed by private elevator.

At 1,350 square feet, the space itself is warm and appealing, in a vaguely suburban sort of way: all three bedrooms are legitimately sizable, the living room is bright and cozy with a wood-burning fire place, and there’s a working dumbwaiter. (Truly, what more do you need?) While the kitchen is definitely on the narrow side, it’s well enough appointed, with stainless appliances, granite countertops, and an ornate tin ceiling. Otherwise, the place offers all the standard features of domestic bliss: the floors are hardwood, the ceilings are high, and the closets are plentiful.

As for the perks, the home comes with a private ground-floor storage unit, an “efficient” shared laundry room, a live-in super, and a communal garden. Maintenance is $1,118. In brighter news, pets are allowed.
