Greenpoint living at its best and most exclusive. 48 Box Street 2 is a two-bedroom one-bathroom floor-through apartment with both north and south exposures. Great light greets you through large panel windows in all rooms that lead to two outdoor spaces, a front balcony, and an idyllic expansive rear terrace. This lovely home is part of a six-unit boutique condominium and exclusively occupies the entire second floor, including direct elevator access to your entrance.
Storage is no issue as this unit comes with six closets, plus a large private 10' x 5' storage room in the basement. Common areas also include a gym equipped with cardio machines, Peloton bike, and weights.
The contemporary design features both style and smart technology, including ebony stained white oak flooring, central heat and air conditioning controlled by Nest thermostat, and an Insteon dimmable lighting system, both of which can be connected to a voice-operated smart speaker. An Aiphone video intercom and SimpliSafe security system complete the homes features. Enjoy both low common charges and a 421a property tax exemption.
From the elegant lobby, your elevator takes you right to the home and the expansive living room with dining area and access to the balcony. Adjacent to the dining area but positioned away nicely is the windowed open kitchen with custom white cabinetry, gray granite countertops, GE Profile suite of stainless steel appliances including side by side refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave, and range with a fully vented hood.
The spa-style bathroom has beautiful gray and white marble throughout the floor, accent wall, and glass-enclosed rain shower with handheld. A mirrored wall is the backdrop for a dramatic white pedestal sink. Adjacent to the bathroom is the utility room with a washer and vented dryer. For convenience, the home also has a separate entrance through a mudroom with a large storage closet and access to stairs.
The hallway to the bedrooms has a large coat closet and linen closet. Both bedrooms are located peacefully away from the street and overlooking the terrace and surrounding trees. Each has a large closet and sliding door access to the fabulous terrace, the premier space of this home, boasting 277 square feet, plenty of room for lounging, dining, and playing areas.
48 Box Street could not have a finer location, on a quiet tree-lined street, but with easy access to all forms of transportation: Subway, LIRR, Long Island Expressway, Queens Midtown Tunnel, and NYC Ferry. There is joyful easy access to Manhattan with the 7 Train that is simply a short jaunt across the Pulaski Bridge and alternatively, the Greenpoint G train stop is nearby as well.
The North Greenpoint location provides a multitude of options in shops, conveniences, restaurants, and bars in both Greenpoint and Long Island City, while still maintaining a more tranquil sanctuary away from the busier parts of the city. Nearby, Greenpoints new public greenspaces on the East River offer waterfront parks, playgrounds, and bike/running paths to enjoy.
