Prices creeping toward the $3 million mark are typically reserved for Manhattan condos and Brooklyn brownstones, but this rather unsightly home in the Rockaways thinks it can fetch a similar sum. Sure it’s on the water in the affluent enclave of Neponsit (and has enough parking for eight cars–what New Yorker doesn’t want that?), but $2.5 million is much higher than most comparable houses in the area. But if you’re willing to drop the dough, you’ll get pretty impressive bay views, balconies off every bedroom, a rear deck, and a backyard with a greenhouse.
The listing describes the home as “European-style.” Though we’re not quite sure what that means, it certainly is very unlike your typical NYC listing. Enter through the Jerusalem stone foyer, complete with radiant heat floors, and head into the living room, where you’ll find some very ostentatious furnishings, what appears to be a working fireplace, and a detailed scenic mural.
With a little bit of updating, the kitchen could become a very spectacular room. It boasts a ton of cabinets and counter space, a four-seat breakfast bar, huge solarium-style windows overlooking the bay, a large window seat, and enough open space for a 10-seat table.
Upstairs are the three bedrooms and their respective balconies.
There are two additional bedrooms on the lower level, along with a massive entertainment space that opens to an outdoor kitchen area and a sauna.
The backyard and patio are definitely the selling point. And don’t forget that there’s a garage plus parking for all eight of your vehicles!
