Jackson Heights, Queens, is one of those neighborhoods where the apartments are large and full of character (and the area is family friendly, too!). This particular co-op is no exception. Even sweeter, the 1,500-square-foot, three-bedroom, two-bath, repped by Nu-Place Realty, has an asking price under a million: $935,000 to be exact. 

Apartments in the Art Deco prewar building, built in 1940, has classic features from that era, like high ceilings, crown moldings, and archways. The Italian-style kitchen in this apartment will have solid wood cabinetry, Caesarstone countertops and stainless steel appliances, and the bathrooms have Grohe Grandera accessories.

Once a rental, Washington Plaza is now being redeveloped into a luxury co-op (complete with a new gym), and this particular apartment is a sponsor unit, which means you won't have to pass a co-op board. (Occupancy is expected in late fall.) The building complex has some serious design cred, too. Originally designed by Sylvan Bien, architect of Manhattan’s Hotel Carlyle and 737 Park Avenue, it's a collection of six, six-story buildings surrounding a private landscaped garden with a pond, cascading fountain, and attended gate-house. 

The complex has been awarded “Recognition for the Historical and Architectural Merit” by the Queens Historical Society and has National Register Historic District status.
