21-43 45th Avenue - Long Island City, New York


EXTREMELY RARE & SPECIAL OFFERING on a landmarked street in Long Island City's highly sought-after Hunters Point Historic District.

Gorgeous circa 1881, 16.8 x 36 2-family house on a 16.8 x 100 lot, with approx. 2,800 square feet of elegant living space comprised of a beautiful lower 2 bedroom duplex with basement and backyard and a lovely upper 2 bedroom duplex. The house is ideally located a block from Murray Park and a block from four subways lines (7/E/M/G), putting you in midtown Manhattan in less than 5 minutes.

Rarely does a townhouse of this caliber, in this charming and coveted historic neighborhood, come to market. Truly a find - perfect for the investor, the buyer seeking an owner duplex with a rental income apartment, or one who envisions creating a fabulous single-family home with a little TLC. Floorplans for both the 2-family layout and a single-family alternative are available.

In its current configuration, the first-floor duplex entrance opens into a gracious foyer, leading to a lovely living room with decorative fireplace, a full bath, and a kitchen with room for dining and access to the large private backyard. The lower level with a laundry area and boiler room can accommodate a family room, den, home office or third bedroom.

This second level is uniquely laid out with 2 spacious bedrooms: the south-facing master bedroom features a walk-in closet/dressing room, and the second bedroom overlooks the backyard, and has a functional vintage cast iron bathtub adding a touch of historic integrity.

The second duplex apartment, entered via the main door and up an interior set of stairs, features a large living room with southern exposure, tasteful crown moldings, original ceiling medallions, a decorative fireplace and other classic details. The roomy kitchen overlooks the backyard and a full bath occupies the third floor.

The fourth floor includes a generously sized master bedroom with abundant natural light, a rear second bedroom, a large walk-in closet and a full bath. Both bedrooms are adorned with decorative fireplaces, one of which can be recommissioned for use.

Set in a historic tree-lined landmark district amid the industrial activity and high-rises of LIC, 45th Ave. has been named one of NYC's best blocks by Time Out New York. The high-stooped, brick, stone, and colorfully painted Italianate rowhouses in this area create a quiet residential enclave that has been lovingly preserved amongst the modern developments surrounding it.
