With Southwestern exposures and oversized dimensions, 5J at The Colony immediately feels like the most welcoming of homes. The large entry foyer gives way to a long and generous sunken living room with a bright, windowed kitchen perfect for entertaining, cooking, and serving meals from the most elaborate to simple dishes for two. Within the last year, the kitchen and bathroom have both been meticulously and thoughtfully renovated; updated with new, highly contemporary finishes while maintaining and complimenting its beautiful, pre-war aesthetic. At a well laid-out 850 SF, charming and useful nooks and spaces abound throughout this apartment allowing for multiple home offices, reading corners, book shelves, and more. As the pictures clearly show, it receives ample sunlight throughout this delightful home.
Maintenance is well-below average at less-than-a-dollar per square foot.
The Colony is a well-maintained, pre-war co-op with a live-in super and a superb management team. It's perfectly situated in the heart of the Astoria; with the 30th Ave subway on the N and W subway lines right around the corner. Of course the Greek cuisine nearby is top flight, but you're also within a few short blocks of Hoja Santa, Sanfords Astoria, Point Brazil, The Trestle, Vesta Trattoria & Wine Bar, and so many more amazing restaurants. Socrates Sculpture Park, Astoria Park, and the globally-influential Noguchi Museum are all within 20 minutes by foot and under 10 by car or bike. The Colony has laundry and storage in the basement as well. Pets are case-by-case.
