If you've been considering buying in Sunnyside, there's a lot to like about this two-bedroom, one-bath co-op in the nine-acre Celtic Park complex. Located in a prewar elevator building, 43-10 48th Avenue #5H is listed at $449,000 with a monthly maintenance charge of $808.
Every room has a window, and the bedroom is southern-facing and overlooks a courtyard. Other features include restored original wood floors, and an updated kitchen with a breakfast nook and stainless steel appliances. The bathroom, however, looks less refreshed, with some rough-looking tile work.
Celtic Park has a 22-person staff (super, porter, maintenance), security, storage, bike storage, composting, and a pet-friendly policy. Heat, gas, and electricity are included in the maintenance fee.
The closest train is the 7 at Biss Street-46th Street, which will get you to Grand Central in about 30 minutes. For those with a car, the Long Island Expressway is a few blocks away. Shopping for food and essentials and a park are within walking distance on Greenpoint Avenue.
