Here’s a listing for a two-bedroom, one-bath co-op with sunroom in one of our favorite Jackson Heights apartment buildings, Laburnum Court. This is one of only a handful of buildings in Jackson Heights with fireplaces. It also has a foyer, French doors between the dining and living rooms, high ceilings, oak floors inlaid with mahogany and maple, a shared garden, and lots of light from all four directions. The preview page for the listing says it’s a fixer-upper; unfortunately there are no interior photos, so we don’t know if the apartment has all its original details, but it does have the original 1920s fireplace. The building is close to the express trains and requires 10 percent down. The maintenance is $787. The one obvious drawback: The unit is on the first floor. Given that it needs some work and is on the first floor, what do you think of the price of $375,000?
