We’re going to switch things up a bit and head into increasingly-coveted Long Island City where a 1,010-square-foot duplex is asking $1.15 million. This Powerhouse loft features 20-foot ceilings, a home office and a lofted sleeping area, giving you a modern two-bedroom if privacy isn’t an issue. But its impeccable finishes and attention to detail make it a standout, and who are we kidding? Just look at that colossal window.
That iconic arched window framed by an exposed brick wall is certainly the focal point of the entire unit. The open layout allows the window to flood the entire space with light. A modern gourmet kitchen opens up to the living space, with white lacquer cabinets, quartzite stone counters, high-end stainless steel appliances, that green glass subway tile backsplash that’s so popular these days, a wenge wood breakfast bar and deep brown accents.
Upstairs, a lofted sleeping area overlooks the living and dining room below, while a second bedroom/home office with sliding doors sits on the main level. Both spaces have luxurious adjoining bathrooms covered in Italian marble, with floating Italian sinks, marble and wood vanities, overhead rain showers and a deep soaking tub.
The perks of living at the Powerhouse condo are on par with being on vacation in your own home. For starters there’s a lounge area with a pool table, plasma TV, and a wet bar, a children’s playroom, a state-of-the-art fitness center, a business center and free wifi. But they don’t stop there. A full-service spa has a social sauna, a Jacuzzi, massage services and beauty treatments, and there’s a rooftop with grills, seating and panoramic views. There’s also an around-the-clock concierge, cold storage, bike storage and parking. Um…we’ll take it.
