An eight million dollar townhouse is up for sale on 51st Avenue in Hunters Point. Though currently configured as a multi-family home, with a total of six bedrooms, six bathrooms, and 4,875 square feet, it could easily be combined into a single home. If so, it would crush any previous single family sale price in LIC, or Queens for that matter.
Built in 1931, it is currently owned by the son of Dorothy Damato. He was born and raised in the townhouse, and currently lives there with his wife. Now that his his kids are all grown up, it is time to sell. In addition, they feel that LIC has become more like Manhattan and lost the flavor of the good old days and charms that they know. Yeah, I hear that, but one man’s loss… The good news is that at $1,600 a square foot you’ll also receive Manhattan pricing!
Despite the old school provenance, the house has been fully renovated for the 21st century (see the fabulous pics in listing below), and is in move-in shape. In addition, it has a lovely backyard garden. The broker on the listing is Kay Moon at Bond New York, and she can provide you with all the projected financials were you to decide to make this an investment property, or a hybrid live/investment one.
So step up to the plate and pay the full listing price. You’ll be one block from a one-stop train ride to Manhattan, and most importantly you’ll be the newest King of Queens!
