Desirable Southeast Corner Home 2 BR/2BA at Powerhouse

2-17 51st Avenue, Apt.413, Long Island City

Perfect light streams through every oversize window in this wonderfully homelike corner apt of 1,268 SF with terrific southeast views facing the East River and NY’s Freedom Tower. 10 foot high ceilings give the apt delightful airiness while complimented by the deep richness of American walnut wood floors throughout. The massive living/dining area features built-in shelving and windows that span a full wall’s width. A Wedgewood ‘sushi bar’ wraps partially around the open setting of the efficient gourmet kitchen with its clean design elements  of white lacquer cabinetry, glass back splash and quartzite stone counter top, accented with deep walnut tones. All this lends harmonized decor while being superbly upgraded with stainless steel Viking appliances. W/D in unit. 

Both bedrooms are amazingly ample with the huge master bedroom offering lovely corner views and an en-suite w/ double sinks and luxurious finishes. The second bedroom extends enough space to comfortably accommodate a Queen size bed. Sizable closets throughout, including one at the welcoming entry foyer.
