4-74 48th Avenue #33F

If an ultra-high floor, wonderfully gut-renovated ~865 SF one bedroom corner unit (convertible to the original two bedroom configuration) piques your interest, this under $1M opportunity — a rare find for a residence of this caliber with two exposures and panoramic views on the Hunters Point waterfront — may just be your NextHome.

As soon as you enter this pin-drop-quiet apartment, the open plan layout dazzles and the thoughtful renovation takes your breath away. The wall of oversized window coverage with northern exposure illuminates the home and delivers scenes of Manhattan, Hunters Point, and downtown LIC that are not to be missed. Even the window frames were recast with metal tones to focus the eye on the world outside.

Marvel at the Caesarstone quartz and stainless kitchen opened and expanded by the current owners: modern, pure white soft-close cabinets impress, gleaming white stone counters accented with pendant lighting seem endless, the dual-compartment undermount sink with Kohler gooseneck fixture delights, 2021-installed gleaming full-sized appliances amaze, and the inspired glass and metal hood suspended over the slide-in range is an avid home cook’s delight. There’s even a clever dine-in nook under the counter to store seating for a quick bite or entertaining. The adjacent dining area was originally conceived as a second bedroom — still supported by its own heating and cooling unit — and is now enhanced with a flat panel television mounted over embedded wiring and accented with a distinctive wall outline. The TV placement services the kitchen, dining, and expansive living space, including your extended 25’+ long living room which can support an array of seating configurations, coffee and side tables, and even a desk or workstation for the occasional Zoom meeting.

The full bathroom boasts all of the modern touches: suspended vanity with waterfall faucet, accented round mirror, bell glass light fixture, white subway tile decorated shower and tub area, large-scale dark gray slate tile flooring, and even a luxurious towel warmer behind the door for the best after-shower experience ever. And when it comes to sleeping spaces, the master bedroom is breathtaking. Three segments of windows with northern and eastern exposure envelope the room, drench it with sunlight, and deliver captivating panoramic views in every direction: from absorbing the most captivating sunrise to observing an array of aircraft landing at LaGuardia Airport in the distance, you will not be disappointed. Its over 180 SF of floor space supports a king bed, nightstands, and an array of dressers and more with a generous wall-length closet to the south that has been upgraded with a custom organization system. The entire home is nicely integrated with 5″ wide plank flooring, solid wood doors with custom inset and modern matte black hardware, and kitchen island/bedroom USB outlets to support even the most wired lifestyle to complete the space.

Easily accessible by land and sea, and adjacent to the wonderfully manicured 22-acre Gantry Plaza State Park on the Hunters Point waterfront, Citylights at Queens Landing is a 42-story full service, luxury condop designed by Cesar Pelli & Associates and SLCE Architects on the vibrant Long Island City coast. Amenities are extravagant, including 24-hour concierge and extensive support staff, live-in resident manager with round-the-clock maintenance coverage, new elevators, laundry room, secure bike room, package room, storage room (waitlisted), residents-only fitness center with sauna, showers, and locker room, open-air tennis courts, and green roof deck. The attached parking garage can be accessed through the lobby, supports Tesla charging, operates a Zipcar location, and offers a discounted monthly rate to building residents.

Pets are welcome, unlimited subletting is allowed after one year of owner occupancy, and a board interview is not required. In addition to convenient bridge and highway access by car, NYC Subway, NYC Ferry, and Long Island Rail Road service are all moments away for the most diverse transit available into Manhattan (under 15 minutes) and all throughout Queens and Long Island.
