No, living in this St. Albans, Queens townhouse will not have you in the center of it all, but if you're craving some suburban feel, prewar aesthetic, and lots of space, 173-17 Sayres Ave., #1, could be for you. Listed for $489,000, the two-bedroom, one-and-a-half bath 1930 Tudor has original hardwood floors, two fireplaces, stained glass, and even hand-painted, 1940s chinoiserie wallpaper.
Practically speaking, you'll need a car to get around—but that's what the garage is for.
The first floor has a large living room with beamed ceilings and a corner fireplace. (Note: there's no bathroom on this floor.) A formal dining area features that period wallpaper on one wall.
A separate room on the first floor could be used as a bedroom, or kept as an office space.
