Located at 42-83 Hunter Street in Long Island City, the Canvas is an intimate 14-unit boutique condominium with a decidedly artistic theme. An immense, multi-story work by artist Jojo Anavim decorates the building’s facade while another of his works is showcased in the lobby. But the creativity doesn’t end there.
The minimalist finishes, white walls and big windows create a backdrop to display your own works of art. The living room in Unit 3B has a large picture window and sliding glass door that opens onto the balcony.
The open-plan kitchen’s white Caesarstone countertops contrast with the wood cabinetry. Samsung refrigerators, Bosch gas ranges and dishwashers keep the kitchen functioning smoothly.
The flooring throughout the apartment is engineered with a wood finish in desert hues. The bedroom features a double closet customized by California Closets.
Porcelain tile, a mosaic accent wall, radiant heated floors, and Kohler toilets, sinks and bathtub give the bathroom a comforting and contemporary feel. The home has its own washer-dryer in a closet next to the bathroom.
Building amenities include an additional laundry room in the basement, a virtual doorman, and a fully equipped fitness center on the first floor.
The neighborhood is rapidly becoming a masterwork as well. Gourmets will love the fact that two Michelin-rated restaurants — M. Wells Steakhouse and Casa Enrique — are close by. Those who live for art will find themselves returning again and again to MoMA PS1 and the Noguchi Museum.
And there’s always a nightcap to be had at the Dutch Kills speakeasy a block away. For commuters, the Court Square and Queensboro Plaza transit hubs are both within walking distance.
Listed by Mae Liew and Janette James of Modern Spaces, the home is asking $710,000. Monthly taxes are $65 and common charges are $474.
