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.
