Walk down the entrance hall of 5B, a prime one-bedroom in The Decker, a nautical themed boutique condominium in Long Island City’s Court Square area, and you notice two things not common to New York City apartments: two huge double-door closets and an in-unit washer-dryer.
Then again, the Decker is all about exceeding expectations. The apartment has an open plan and huge multi-planed windows reminiscent of factory design.
Make a right turn and enter the kitchen, a well equipped space outfitted with Miton Cucine cabinetry from Italy, Bosch appliances and plenty of counter space. Speaking of space, the kitchen flows into a large living/dining room illuminated by a wall of windows. It’s a spectacular setting for a dinner or cocktail party.
Alongside the living room sits the bedroom, with its own light-catching window and yet another large, two-door closet. The bathroom is appointed with Grohe and Kohler fixtures, stylish white subway tile and a large soaking tub.
In addition to the three closets in the unit, there is storage available in the building. Extra storage is only the beginning of the perks buyers receive when they buy into The Decker.
As well as a convenient virtual doorman, the building offers a fully equipped fitness center, a lounge, an outdoor space with barbecue grills and a recreation room with a pool table.
One of the The Decker’s best features is its location. In addition to cultural attractions like PS 1 and the SculptureCenter, there are great restaurants and bars throughout the area.
And of course, the Gantry Plaza State Park, with recreational opportunities, is nearby. The Decker is close to the G, 7, N and W trains and the NYC Ferry.
Listed by Carlos Simoes and Mary Beth McGill of Modern Spaces, the apartment is asking $775,000. Monthly taxes are $600 and common charges are $439.
