Dining area or extra bedroom? You decide. 


You get a lot of space for your bucks at 67 108th Street, #B56 in Forest Hills, Queens. Listed for $489,000 with $1,004 maintenance, the two-bedroom, one-bath co-op is large enough that the dining area could be turned into a third bedroom or office. 

A corner apartment, the co-op gets lots of natural light; an entry foyer has two closets, there are hardwood floors throughout.

The apartment also has crown and base moldings, high ceilings, and ceiling medallions, as well as new interior doors with modern hardware. 

The kitchen has been updated and has a new refrigerator, dishwasher, granite countertops and a window.

The corner master bedroom has his-and-her closets, and the bathroom has a separate tub and standing shower, as well as a window. 

The co-op was built in 1949 and has six stories. Amenities include a full-time door attendant, gym, bike room, storage area, parking garage, and full-time valet. 

The building is two blocks from the M and R trains at 67th Avenue; a park is a half a block away, and shopping, eating, exercising can be done a long Queens Boulevard, or a bit further on Austin Street.
