This spacious duplex apartment with a soaring double-height living room, three bedrooms and two terraces is both inspiring and comfortable. It’s located in a new 42-unit condominium called The Bond, located at 46-20 11th St. in the center of Hunter’s Point, the section of Long Island City experiencing a building boom ahead of Amazon’s new campus.
Floor-to-ceiling windows are a feature of every room, and the finishes throughout are luxe.
The apartment opens onto open-plan living, dining and kitchen areas with a dramatic staircase and even more dramatic views through double-height floor-to-ceiling windows. The space leads out onto a terrace, and there is 5-inch-wide oak flooring throughout the home.
The kitchen features quartz countertops and backsplashes as well as custom Egger cabinetry. There are Bosch appliances and lots of cupboard and counter space.
One of the bedrooms and a Bosch washer/dryer are on this floor; upstairs is the master suite and another bedroom.
The master bedroom has three closets and an ensuite bathroom. The second bedroom has a terrace and two closets.
Both bathrooms have Kohler fixtures and radiant heat flooring. A multi-functional Toshiba heating and cooling system regulates the interior climate and smart door locks aid security.
The glass and brick exterior pays homage to Long Island City’s industrial past. The building, which looks out over the expanse of Gantry Plaza State Park, offers residents a full slate of amenities, including a fitness center, bike room, package room and garage parking for sale. There is a lounge in the building for entertaining guests, as well as a landscaped outdoor courtyard on the ground floor.
Located a few blocks from the waterfront Gantry Plaza State Park, The Bond is near the 7, E, M and G trains at Court Square and about a 10-minute walk from one of the city’s busiest transportation hubs at Queens Plaza, with N and W trains. There is also ferry service for the downtown-bound.
Listed by Andy Dimakopoulos and Heath Tucker of Modern Spaces, the home is asking $1.9 million. Monthly taxes are $1,417 and common charges are $1,127.
