Homes for Sale in Queens and Manhattan


QUEENS | 10 Holder Place, No. 5A

A two-bedroom, two-bath, 1,700-square-foot prewar apartment, with a living room that has 14-foot ceilings, a formal dining room with French doors, a windowed galley kitchen with a dishwasher, a primary suite, a foyer-turned-sitting area, casement windows and inlaid hardwood floors on the top floor of an elevator building that has a part-time doorman and basement laundry room. Denise Figliolia, Sotheby’s International Realty, 917-747-7525; sothebysrealty.com

MAINTENANCE

$2,818 a month

PROS

The home feels spacious at every turn, especially in the living room, which has an area of about 400 square feet, larger than some New York studio apartments.

CONS

Buyers who expect apartment buildings to come with amenities might be disappointed. There’s no gym, for instance.

MANHATTAN | 133 West 28th Street, No. 3B

A 900-square-foot loft-style prewar apartment, with one bedroom set off by a partial wall, an open floor plan, an open kitchen, one windowless bath, a washer and dryer, exposed brick walls and original hardwood floors on the third floor of a non-doorman elevator building in the flower district. Meagan Buckley, Brown Harris Stevens, 410-279-3336; bhsusa.com

Maintenance

$2,155 a month

Pros

Buyers with an appetite for a renovation may like the blank-slate possibilities of this somewhat raw space, with windows facing south.

Cons

Flower deliveries make for a noisy block.


MANHATTAN | 140 Fifth Avenue, No. 5A

MANHATTAN 140 Fifth Avenue, No. 5A

A one-bedroom, one-bath, 900-square-foot prewar apartment, with a combined living and dining room, an open kitchen with stainless steel appliances, a washer and dryer, a primary bedroom that has two walls lined with built-out closets, a secondary sleeping area with built-in shelving and a pocket door and 11-foot ceilings in a non-doorman Beaux-Arts elevator building at West 19th Street. Kristi Ambrosetti, Sotheby’s International Realty, 917-763-8504; sothebysrealty.com

Maintenance

$1,896 a month

Pros

The home’s enormous windows take in architecturally-interesting buildings and a dynamic streetscape.

Cons

The sleeping area is too small to be a legal bedroom — in fact, a twin bed barely squeezes in now — though the space could be converted to a den or home office.

Given the fast pace of the current market, some properties may no longer be available at the time of publication.
