Jackson Heights has a large stock of lovely co-op apartments, and this is one of them. It’s a two-bedroom unit from 83-10 35th Street, one of the historic district buildings with a central, shared courtyard for residents. (When Jackson Heights was developed, it was called a “garden city” for those very courtyards.) It boasts a spacious floorplan and a foyer so large that, according to the listing, the seller put up a sliding door to create an extra guest bedroom.
The foyer, even with a bedroom carved out of it, is still massive. It flows nicely into the living room, which has all the Art Deco details we love in Jackson Heights co-ops: high, 11-foot ceilings; moldings; and oak floors. Instead of the rounded entryways, though, this unit has been modernized with the large, sliding glass door.
The living room is spacious and framed by two large windows at one end and a sliding door which opens to the foyer on the other.
The window in the dining area of the kitchen keeps this space really bright. Some perks in here include a dishwasher and a pantry. And we are digging the wood counters and shelving against the stainless steel!
Each bedroom has two large windows, while the master comes with two exposures.
And of course, the interior courtyard that makes many of these Jackson Heights buildings so special. Plantings, trees, shade — you’ve got all the makings of a great outdoor space.
