Astoria is one of Queens’ westernmost neighborhoods, offering an easy commute to Manhattan, a diverse range of restaurants and businesses, and lower prices than some of its neighbors, like Long Island City. Still, homes in the neighborhood usually sit well above the median asking price for Queens as a whole. That’s why we’re featuring 30-38 29th St. #5A as our Deal of the Week. This 1-bedroom condo has a dishwasher, private balcony, and tons of space, all for under $600K.

Why You’ll Love It…

This unit is located in Petra, a brand-new building with all the modern amenities you could want, from wide-plank hardwood floors to central air and heating. These modern upgrades really shine in the kitchen, which also serves as the entryway for the apartment. Two-tone cabinetry and white quartz countertops provide a clean, modern feel, plus all the storage and prep space you need. The Frigidaire Gallery range features an induction cooktop and an oven with a built-in air fryer! There’s also a mounted microwave and a dishwasher, in addition to a closet that can be used as a pantry or coat closet.

The rest of the living space is drenched in light thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows, and doors that open onto the private balcony! There’s ample room for living furniture and a dining set. The bedroom has similar windows — which are triple-paned for soundproofing — plus a walk-in closet! Across the hall, the bathroom sports a gray monochromatic look and has a deep soaking tub perfect for relaxing.

The building includes an elevator, laundry room with Miele appliances, storage units, an Amazon package locker system, bicycle storage, and on-site parking. There’s also a shared rooftop deck with plenty of space to enjoy! Located right near 30th Avenue, the building has great access to eateries, bars, coffee shops, and conveniences. Athens Square is a block away, but the larger Astoria Park is also within a mile. Transit is also a breeze, with the N and W trains stopping at nearby 30th Avenue.

…And Why You Might Not

The building’s hyper-modern, gray-and-glass facade does stand out a bit in the neighborhood. The monthly charges are also on the higher side when totaled, but not much more than most Manhattan co-ops would charge.

All in all, if you’ve been looking to buy a newer place in Astoria, this one is worth checking out!
