The prewar co-op was designed by architect George H. Wells. 


Three-bedroom apartments for under $1 million—a relatively affordable price in New York City—can be tough to find. Here's one that's asking $940,000 and has been renovated as well. Located in the Jackson Heights Historic District, 34-50 80th St., #42, is on the top floor of a prewar co-op building known as Elm Court. 

The co-op has original features such as wood floors and a working fireplace with marble mantel. An elevator opens directly into the apartment. 

The living space has an open layout and oversized windows, providing light from eastern and western exposures. 

The kitchen is renovated and features an island, marble countertops, stainless steel appliances, and a Fisher Paykel refrigerator.  

The apartment has two bathrooms; the master bath is also renovated and features subway tile. 

The bedrooms are a nice size, and two look out onto a large, shared, landscaped central garden. 

The co-op's amenities include personal storage and a bike room; maintenance is $938.  

The building is a short walk to the Roosevelt Avenue subway station, where you can catch the 7, E, F, and R trains, and shopping, eating, and entertainment can be found on both Northern Boulevard and Roosevelt Avenue.
