The ground floor apartment at the Canvas at 42-83 Hunter St. offers the best of both worlds: a berth in a luxury building loaded with amenities and outdoor space in which to relax and enjoy the seasons — whether entertaining or simply taking in the fresh air.
The garden itself is sizable — at 30 by 25 feet — and it’s private. The rest of the apartment retains the “wide open spaces” theme with a large open living area on the garden floor.
As with everything at the Canvas — a boutique condominium named for the artists’ medium and a showcase for the works of Pop Art artist Jojo Anavim — aesthetics are given a top priority with this apartment, which is new to the market.
Premium craftsmanship is a keynote throughout, from customized closets by California Closets to the wood flooring in a desert sand finish. The kitchen’s wood cabinetry and Caesarstone countertops complement a sleek stainless-steel refrigerator, gas range and Bosch dishwasher.
The bathroom has porcelain tile, a radiant heated floor and Kohler toilet, sink, bathtub and fixtures. On the lower level is the laundry room and a large open bonus space that could be used as a rec room, office, storage or guest quarters.
Building amenities include a virtual doorman, laundry room and fully equipped fitness center.
It’s no surprise to find a building committed to being in the vanguard in Court Square. MoMA PS1, Noguchi Museum and the SculptureCenter are all nearby. For recreation, Gantry Plaza State Park, the riverside retreat with fishing piers and running paths, is within strolling distance. Acclaimed steakhouse M. Wells is less than a block away. And you can get to Manhattan quickly at the Queens Plaza subway complex within walking distance.
Listed by Mae Liew of Modern Spaces, the home is asking $1.17 million with taxes of $104 and monthly common charges of $767.
