Townhouse-style living distinguishes The Craftsmen, a new row of eight four-story buildings whose apartments range from studios to three-bedrooms in Long Island City in Queens. It is just around the corner from MOMA PS1, steps from neighborhood bars and restaurants and has easy access to the G, 7 and E trains.
This bright and airy one-bedroom, Unit 2 at 21-20 45th Rd., has a flexible lower level opening onto a private garden.
On the main level, high ceilings and large windows give the space an open and modern feel. In the living room, a glass door opens onto a balcony overlooking the garden. White oak floors extend throughout the 25-foot-wide home — significantly wider than most historic row houses in the city.
The kitchen, which is open to the living space, is outfitted with high-end appliances including a Bosch refrigerator and a Bertazzoni range. The Caesarstone countertop offers plenty of room to work.
The bedroom also has large windows overlooking the rear garden. The bathrooms are equipped with Grohe hardware and Kohler sinks and toilets.
The flexible lower level includes a half bath as well as washer-dryer hookups. More than 1,000 square feet, the garden is more than big enough for any summer barbecue.
Listed by Carlos Simoes and Mary Beth McGill of Modern Spaces, the home is asking $1.349 million. Monthly taxes are $890 and common charges are $319.
