A renovation produced a more open living area.


Enjoy space and light in this nicely renovated prewar co-op in Jackson Heights. Listed for $536,500, 35-21 79th St. #6K, is a top-floor one-bedroom, one-bath apartment with views overlooking the elevator building's private garden. Nice details and upgrades include a foyer, skim-coated walls, custom moldings, hardwood floors (with sound-reducing subfloors), and large windows.

The apartment has been renovated to provide an open living space, and there is an island with storage dividing the living area and kitchen, where there's room for dining. 

The kitchen has stainless steel appliances, open shelving, white cabinetry, and a subway-tile backsplash.

The corner bedroom is large and has custom closets. (Serious question: Is that light fixture real or virtual?) The bathroom is modern and appears to have just a shower, no bathtub.

Other nice features here include hard-wired cable lines, new radiator covers, a chalk wall in the foyer, and closet storage systems. 

The building recently updated the interiors, elevators, and laundry room, and offers bike storage, a live-in super, and a pet-friendly policy. Maintenance is $755 a month. 

The building is located on a tree-lined street, and public transit is a few blocks away at the 82nd Street Station for the 7 train; for a slightly longer walk, there are the E, F, M, R, and 7 trains at the Roosevelt Avenue-Jackson Heights stop. Shopping and restaurants can be found nearby on 37th Avenue, Broadway, and Northern Boulevard.
