A two-family house was sold for $2 million, a record price for the area, according to NY Space Finders.
The house, located at 48-07 21st Ave., was sold on Feb. 1 by real estate broker Luca DiCiero at a markedly higher price than other Astoria homes in the last three years.
“This was a unique house, tailor-made for an owner occupier and is not your typical two-family house. I think this is only [the] beginning of the high-end Astoria market,” DiCiero said. “I started with luxury apartments and now townhouses are what’s popular. I was born and raised in the Astoria and I’m always excited for what’s to come.”
On average, other one-, two- and three-family homes in the area have been sold for about $1,200,000. Previously, the largest sale of a two-family home in Astoria was made for $1,359,000, according to the real estate firm.
The two-family luxury home includes a ground floor and basement with amenities such as a home theater with a 110-inch television screen, a custom bar and pool table and laundry room. The second floor houses three bedrooms, two bathrooms and access to the front patio.
The house is also equipped with a free-standing Jacuzzi, a chef’s eat-in kitchen with an island breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances and a touchscreen security system.
