Houses in Sunnyside Gardens are not the only residential listings in the neighborhood going for more than $1 million.

In what local real estate agents believe is a first, a co-op in Sunnyside has just been put on the market for more than $1 million.

The co-op has been listed for $1.145 million and is a 3.5-bedroom unit on the top floor of The Oxford, a six-story building located on the corner of 41st Street and 43rd Avenue.

“This is the largest apartment on the market [in Sunnyside] as two apartments have been combined and gut renovated from top to bottom,” said Bonnie Milcarek, an associate broker with Welcome Home Real Estate who listed the apartment.

Milcarek said the apartment is over 1,500 square feet, larger than many 2-family houses in Sunnyside Gardens. “It’s a special unit. It feels like a Brooklyn loft when you walk inside.”

The highest listing prices for co-ops in Sunnyside until now have fetched in the mid $700,000 range, Milcarek said.

A 2-bedroom, 1,124 square foot unit in Sunnyside Towers, located at 46-01 39th Ave., was recently listed for $739,000 and has just gone into contract. A large co-op at 45-08 40th St. sold for $748,000 earlier this year, she said.

Milcarek said the attraction of the co-op at The Oxford is its size and that it’s on the top floor with great lighting. She said that three-bedroom co-ops—let alone 3.5 bedrooms—are a rare find in Sunnyside.

The Oxford, she said, has a live-in super and porter, laundry room, bike storage, storage lockers for rent and a common courtyard. There is no flip tax, and sublets are permitted after 2 years of occupancy.

The maintenance for the apartment is $1,517 per month, which includes heat, water and gas.

For a price of 1,100,000.00 it needs Mitsubisi air con units not window units for a/c. Window units in a Co-op of a price 0f $1.1 M is wrong.

Serious question

Um, where did that outrageous price come from? The finishes look suspiciously like ikea to me.

“It’s a special unit. It feels like a Brooklyn loft when you walk inside.”

Yeah, but eventually you have to go outside.

Outside is one of best areas in Queens. I was in Sunnyside for years and it’s great!

Condos are a better deal generally speaking. Co-ops are glorified rentals IMO having owned a co-op for many years.

Surreal- Cooperatives are good for security minded . They have stringent rules regarding a buyers down payment, finances and sublets. Boards help keep out drug dealers. Buyers need to prove where money comes from. Boards do not have to have a reason to turn down a buyer, see the cases involving Richard Nixon and Madonna.

Nice! I own 2 apartments. I’m renting out one and living in the other. Getting nice rent for one and bought the other one for 67,000. I’m sure some of you bitter people will make sarcastic comments but too bad!

Cute apartment but waay overpriced. Also I’m confused by what’s going on with that kitchen floor. Is it a rug or tile? Or tile made to look like a rug? It hurts my eyes to look at it. And I don’t understand why they have an old yellowing refrigerator that doesn’t match the other appliances.

No balcony? Some transplant will want it. Same happened in Astoria. The purchased and rented homes right next to the elevated train and then complain about the noise level and smells from the train and street vendors.

Allow me to retort.

Randomly blurting out “FOX NEWS!!!!” everytime you disagree with someone is not considered a coherent argument for anything among sane people.

Retort- The dude seems be spot on. Every time he posts that type of comment you turn up.

@eyeroll- Have some respect. Cult members get very sensitive when the cult is mentioned.

Is it news or is it entertainment

Retort – It’s not random, it’s directed right at you. Where do you see the word news? Fox told judges in actual court cases they’re not news they’re opinion and entertainment owned by News Corp an entertainment company.

Most people do not watch cable new anymore. They get their news from Twitter and IG.
Though many folks around here watch BET and telemundo (which airs free).

Smh

Oh wow it’s the liberal gang bullying again. Fox News Fanboy, Lefty Dave, and the pronoun queen Barb must share the same lame brain. But @retort, thank you. The FoxNews Fanboy changed his moniker again because of you. @Lefty Dave, did you plant the post so you and the good time boys (or whatever gender you claim) can comment? Lmao. And Barb, there is no cult bigger than theWoke cult who assume everything is racist, sexist, anti LBgTQ, etc. Same people who claim trannies are real women and guns kill and people don’t.

Overpriced.

Ridiculous. The construction quality of those buildings is not for such a price, even if it’s a 3.5 bedroom Apt. on the top floor. And then $1500 maintenance? I guess that’s for the “green areas”, pool, tennis court that “are not visible” from the street…

Why would someone pay that much for a coop? Most of the houses are around that price (which is still insane) and you have $1,500 a month in maintenance on top?

Would you really want the dubious distinction of paying the most anyone has ever paid for a place in a neighborhood?
