Description: A bright and cheery winged 2 bedroom/2 bath in 5SL, Long Island City's premier luxury doorman address. Apartment features gourmet kitchen with Bosch Dishwasher, Bosch stove and cook top, Liebherr fridge, "Alpine Snow" Sile Stone counters with breakfast bar and garbage disposal. The master suite has gorgeous maple hardwood floors (which are throughout), a spacious walk-in closet and en-suite master bath with spa shower, honed limestone double sink and bamboo vanity. The living room is 16' wide with over sized windows, great light, and a Bosch washer and Bosch dryer stacked in nearby closet. The 2nd bedroom is generously proportioned and adjacent to a second full bath that features soaking tub and marble pedestal sink. The building features 24 hour concierge, gym, playroom, cold storage, bike storage and common outdoor space. The building is located in the heart of Hunters Point in Long Island City- 1 block from the waterfront Gantry State Park, and 2 block from the 7 train which is one stop from Grand Central.
The skinny: Buying this never lived in resale saves a ton on closing costs (approximately $25,000.) and on that basis makes this apartment the best priced 2 bedroom available in the building. Additional savings can be had by buying the parking spot, which the owner is offering for $50k if purchased with the apartment, a savings of $20k at the going rate.
UPDATE: We are planning to hold an open house tomorrow (Weds 7/2) from 4-6pm (pending clearance from the managing agent). If you would like to have a look, give a call to check on Open House status, or call to see by appointment any time.
