If you've been saving your pennies for a hefty down payment on a spacious two bedroom, two bath and don't have a dog, 35-55 76th St., #51, in Jackson Heights, Queens, could be a match. Listed for $815,000, the co-op is located on the top floor of a building in the 1922 Hawthorne Court complex. You'll need those savings: Buyers are required to put 33 percent down, and maintenance is $1,000 a month. 

The apartment has eastern exposures that provide views of a garden courtyard below, and western exposures that look out onto the tree-lined street, and original hardwood floors. Additional features include custom closets and nine-foot ceilings; it's also been recently painted. 

The living and dining area has an open plan, and an elevator opens directly into the apartment. The wood-burning fireplace in the apartment is functional. 

The windowed, galley kitchen has two entry points, facilitating movement. 

The master bedroom is adjacent to a bathroom.

The second bedroom (or sunroom, office, etc.) has its own en suite bathroom with a shower. 

The building has recently undergone roof and brick repairs, and the shared laundry space received an upgrade as well. This apartment comes with a large, private storage space in the basement. No dogs or subletting are allowed. 

The co-op is conveniently located three blocks from the Roosevelt Avenue Jackson Heights subway station, and significant  shopping and dining options are also close by on Broadway and 37th Avenue.
