New York City is the Art Deco capital of the world! Of all the world's great cities, none is so defined by its Art Deco buildings as is New York with its noble Art Deco skyscrapers, such as Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall, the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building, along with countless other apartment houses, public buildings, and theaters found throughout the five boroughs. This “Unicorn of Astoria” is a truly fascinating Art Deco 3-Family Townhouse that was inspired by the Chrysler and Empire State Buildings and captures the glamour and elegance trend of the 1920s and 1930s. It's sleek design and bold, geometric motifs illustrate this type of architecture beautifully, and its upward pointing railings, vertical exterior wall facade, windows and outdoor spiral staircase were all purposely arranged to symbolize “prosper in life.”
Remarkable inside and out, it boasts a total of (8) bedrooms, (5) bathrooms, elevator, office/workout room, movie room, (2) car garage with EV charging station, and rear yard. The first-floor residence is a (1) bedroom, (1) bathroom with private outdoor space and is currently tenant occupied. The second-floor residence is a (3) bedroom, (2) bathroom, also tenant occupied. The 3rd, 4th, and 5th floors were the owner's duplex which is currently vacant and includes (4) bedrooms, (2) full bathrooms, (2) half bathrooms, movie room, workout room, and a private laundry room. The 4th floor features 20-foot ceilings, marble gas fireplace, heated floors, recessed lighting, recessed audio speakers, GE profile appliances and a striking, spiral staircase that ascends from the large private outdoor space on the 4th floor to an additional outdoor space on the 5th. This is the ideal area for entertaining guests or enjoying a beautiful sunset. This apartment was designed to have an upside-down layout, placing the bedrooms on the main floor and the living area on the floors above. This design places and emphasis on the outdoor space which features amazing views, an abundance of natural light, extra privacy, and makes a bold impression. Additionally, there is a laundry room and storage room in the sublevel of the house for the residents to share. Conveniently located near the 30th Avenue train station (N&Q) and 20 minutes away from midtown. The area offers diverse cafes, eateries, businesses, parks, and more.
