Immaculately renovated with the finest finishes and architectural imagination, this rare, top-floor, one-bedroom apartment will have your attention the moment you enter. The welcoming foyer offers an immediate look into the sunlit living space framed by wide windows. You will then be captured by the immaculate hardwood floors, laid over a sound-reducing subfloor. Skim coated walls are smooth to the touch and are framed with custom molding. The original floor plan has been reconfigured into a massive open-concept living space, bathed in natural light. Windows overlook the building’s private garden, while also enjoying views of ethereal skies as this home towers over neighboring buildings.
No detail was overlooked in creating this editorial-worthy, open-concept kitchen offering top-of-the-line appliances, high-end finishes, and a true designer’s vision. The island seats plenty and has added storage. The living room has designated dining and lounge areas while offering plentiful floor space. The corner bedroom offers a view of the garden, as well as massive custom closets and enough room to house several beds or a home office. Spa-like, the bath has been outfitted with the finest finishes in exquisite taste.
Less prominent but worthy details include hard-wired cable lines, updated electric, new radiator covers, sturdy curtain rods, a chalk wall in the foyer, closet storage systems, high-end doors, quality window shades, light fixtures, and a sub-layer of built-in privacy accentuate and complete this package of an ideal turn-key home.
Recently updated with a new interior, new elevators and laundry room, the Monroe was erected in 1948 to the designs of William Hohauser. Centrally located in the Jackson Heights Historic District on a quiet tree-lined street, moments to all amenities, schools, and five minutes from the Roosevelt Transit Hub, it offers amenities such as a private garden, and a live-in super.
