Wrapped around three exposures of the most iconic Jackson Heights building, this massive four-bed, two-and-a-half-bath home offers a wood-burning fireplace, formal dining, exquisite original hardwood floors, four garden-facing bedrooms, a windowed galley kitchen, an in-unit washer-dryer, ample closets, built-in shelving and much more. The living room is spacious enough to house a grand piano and gracious seating around the fireplace, while the adjacent formal dining room has a floor-to-ceiling window and convenient access to the kitchen. The Master bedroom has its own en-suite full bath, while all bedrooms also enjoy a charming view of the historic garden.

Additionally, the co-op provides each apartment with a storage room.

Built in 1923-25 and designed by Andrew J. Thomas, this complex was once home to film icons like Charlie Chaplin and Alfred Hitchcock, The Towers is perhaps the most iconic and sought-after building in Jackson Heights. It exhibits all the elements which set the precedent for further development in Jackson Heights, with features such as a massive private garden, ornate architectural and sculptural elements, iron and glass double doors with fanlights, stone trim at the towers, and the celebrated stone griffons flanking its iron gates. The Towers is a U-shaped structure comprised of eight buildings that span an entire city block on 34th Avenue, with its wings spanning all the way to Northern Blvd. It encases some of the largest apartments in Jackson Heights, complete with fireplaces, high ceilings, gorgeous hardwood floors, massive windows and more. It has a live-in super, laundry facilities, elevators, storage, and is pet friendly. As you would expect based on its prime location, the building is within striking distance to all local amenities and all forms of transportation, including the Roosevelt Avenue express hub.

This is a complete package of a rare NYC home, which we are excited to bring to the market. Showings are by appointment only. Call listing agent to schedule!
