Condo pick of the week

For Manhattan's average sales price, a four-bedroom condo in a new development in Flushing

Last quarter's market reports pegged the average sales price of a Manhattan apartment as having climbed to $2.11 million—which, depending on the neighborhood, could get you anywhere from from a one-bedroom to an entire townhouse.

If you're willing to venture to Flushing, you'll find a four-bedroom, two-and-a-half-bath penthouse in a new condominium development bursting at the seams with amenities. The apartment is listed for $2.425 million by Sky View Parc, one of three towers on a 14-acre site that offers outdoor perks like a rooftop pool, tennis courts, and a dog run.

Perched at the top of the condo tower, in a corner location with multiple exposures, loads of natural light is pretty much a guarantee in the open-plan living room (see the main image). From the dining area, you'll have far-reaching vistas of the city; that sense of airiness continues in the kitchen, outfitted with stylish but understated pendant lighting and blond wood cabinetry. 

In the master bedroom, the sunset views you're likely to get could prove distracting. You'll also find a walk-in closet that looks big enough to double as a dressing room, and an en suite bath with upscale fixtures and finishes. 

The apartment comes with some built-in smart home tech, like a keyless entry system unlocked via smartphone and an automatic, energy-saving thermostat. And within the vast complex of this development, you'll be close to the Sky View Center mall, as well as have access to amenities that could make you reluctant to ever leave, including a landscaped rooftop garden (and pool), a spa, running track, children's playground, and private valet parking. While none of this comes cheap, it's clear your dollar goes a lot further here than it would in Manhattan.
