Be blocks from the beach in this Rockaway two-bedroom

Ready to quit pounding the pavement and go barefoot instead? The buyer of this two-bedroom condo will live one block from Rockaway Beach, able to kick off their shoes and make the most of a beach community lifestyle within the city. The duplex has been recently renovated, and includes a private terrace for more sunbathing opportunities. Listed by Corcoran for $549,000, the unit is priced for an increasingly popular neighborhood and easy access to the water. 

Despite its first-floor location, the living room is well-illuminated thanks to sliding glass doors that lead to the front terrace. (Note, though, that the apartment's location on Rockaway Beach Boulevard could mean dealing with some street noise.) The open kitchen features marble countertops and new stainless steel appliances, including a dishwasher. 

The bedrooms are located at the back of the home, away from the busy street. The master, pictured here, benefits from double exposures that bring in a sunny, beachy vibe, and also includes an en-suite bath. A second bedroom, not pictured in the listing, has access to a second bath off the living room. 

Your friends will likely want to take advantage of your proximity to the ocean, and a highlight of the condo is its large finished den, which has tons of potential for entertaining. Located on the lower level of the unit, the space has a half bath, plus a hook up for a washer and dryer. 

The condo is part of a development that also includes a shared community garden. And though the city may feel distant, it's only a quick drive away—and luckily, the apartment has its own parking spot.
