This majestic townhouse was built in 1881 and sits in the middle of one of the most historic tree-lined blocks in NYC. It is currently configured as a spacious owner's duplex with a deck, large backyard and a renovated second apartment on the third and fourth floors. Live in one unit and rent the other or easily combine both units into a huge singe-family home. Low taxes makes this very attractive from an expense point of view.
The owner's unit features high ceilings on the parlor floor with large windows and fireplaces in both the living and dining areas. Off the kitchen you will find a 16x14 deck that overlooks the garden patio and provides light, air and blue sky views. The garden level houses two large bedrooms, an office and includes exposed brick and beamed ceilings along with a third fireplace as well as access to the back yard.
The second unit on the top two floors have great light, views and a renovated kitchen with skylight. There are two more fireplaces in the dining and living rooms and two bright and large bedrooms.
The building has been owner occupied and consequently has been very well maintained with a relatively new roof and mechanicals already in place so little to no maintenance should be required. There is a full basement used for storage and available FAR should the new owner want to expand.
Highlights of Hunters Point include a bevy of amazing new restaurants, the LIC waterfront and Gantry State Park's 12 acres of fields, walkways, playgrounds, along with NYC's newest public library, Hunter's Point Library.
21-51 45th Avenue is less than one block from the 7 train at Court Square, and about 1 block from the E, M and G trains. The N, W, and R trains are just a couple of blocks further. The waterfront also has two stops on the NYC Ferry system (Hunters Point South and Long Island City). Drivers can easily reach Brooklyn, Manhattan and Long Island via the Long Island Expressway, Queens Midtown Tunnel, Ed Koch Queensboro (formerly 59th St) Bridge, and Pulaski Bridge.
