Looking for beachfront living that’s only a train ride away from Manhattan? Here’s your answer. This three-bedroom condo has hit the market in the Far Rockaways, at 124-11 Rockaway Beach Boulevard. It’s got all the right beachy interior details: open floorplan, big windows, two outdoor spaces, private parking, and a washer/dryer unit to clean your swimsuits and towels. Because, of course, the location is just a mere block from the Rockaway boardwalk and beachfront. After selling in 2015 for $492,000, it’s now asking a hair under $600,000.
The duplex is a spacious 1,564 square feet. The first floor holds a large living room with gas fireplace and mantle and sliders out to the private terrace. There’s also extra room for an office.
The open kitchen, also on the lower floor, has granite counters and stainless appliances. It opens right up to the dining area.
Two bedrooms, a full bathroom, and the washer/dyer unit complete the first floor.
The upper level is dedicated to the master bedroom. It boasts a big ensuite bathroom, tons of closet space, and access out to another terrace. The cathedral ceilings add nice character up here.
Here’s a look at one of the two outdoor spaces, this one just big enough for an herb garden and a spot to enjoy your morning coffee. No waterfront views, unfortunately, but you can’t really beat a quick, one block jaunt to get to the boardwalk. The apartment is also within walking distance to the increasingly cool bars and restaurants surrounding the beach. The one negative (and where that private parking space will come in handy): the closest subway is a 10-minute drive away.
