Yes, this apartment in Jackson Heights, 35-20 77th St., #41, is almost a million dollars, but you get a lot for your money. Listed for $975,000, this three bedroom, two bath is in Hawthorne Court, a prewar co-op building built in 1921. (And it's priced a bit higher than the median asking price for a three-bedroom in the neighborhood, $850,000, according to StreetEasy).

With an elevator that opens directly into the apartment, the co-op also has nine-foot ceilings, large windows, east and west exposures, and walnut and oak hardwood floors. There's also a wood-burning fireplace, extensive built-in bookcases and a separate, formal dining area.

The electrical system in the apartment has been updated, and there's a washer/dryer as well. 

The kitchen is renovated and has stainless steel appliances and a pretty, powder blue backsplash. We don't get a photo of the bathroom, so maybe that needs an update. 

Part of a complex of buildings with 50,000 square feet of communal gardens, the building has a live-in super and pets are allowed; maintenance is $995. 

The apartment is two blocks from the 7, E, F, M, R trains at Roosevelt Avenue/Jackson Heights, and shopping, dining and entertainment options can be found on both 37th and Roosevelt avenues.
