There’s a deal to be found in the Queens neighborhood Forest Hills Gardens, where this lofted one-bedroom apartment has hit the market for $329,000. This is the only duplex in the entire cooperative, a historic Arts and Crafts style building located at 1 Station Square. Custom storage and closets maximize the space, which holds a living area, open kitchen and master bedroom below. Above, accessed by a spiral staircase, is a bonus space for an office and second bedroom. The apartment last sold in 2008 for $340,000.

The lower level is configured with a bathroom, open kitchen, combination living and dining room, and finally the master bathroom. Because the building is so unique, cathedral ceilings line the apartment.

A bold accent wall lines the lower-floor living room.

Here’s a look at the master bedroom–also with a unique ceiling above–which has a few closets and a window.

The lofted bonus space, which looks down to the living room below, gets light from a skylight. There’s a hallway connecting one side (now used as a second bedroom) to the other (used as an office).

This unique co-op was built in 1930 by Grosvenor Atterbury, the architect who also designed NYC City Hall. Station Square was actually envisioned as the centerpiece of Forest Hills Gardens–a large public space surrounded by public transit, shops, a hotel and apartment houses like this one. So today, 1 Station Square is conveniently located to just about everything you’d need in the neighborhood, including the Long Island Railroad station.
