But it’s a little more difficult to find some of those blown-up houses, which are stuffed onto hilly lots, with a comfortably sized outdoor space.
The residence at 181-02 Dalny Rd. offers a sizable, tropical-themed backyard featuring an elevated gazebo that is somewhat symbolic of Jamaica Estates’ contrast from usual New York City housing, while the neighborhood is still within the five boroughs. The backyard features a paved patio and garden with a variety of plants.
A few blocks away from the final Queens F train stop at 179th Street and Hillside Avenue, the 6,750-square-foot home was constructed pre-recession in 2006 on a lot of more than 9,000 square feet replacing an older home.
The luxury giant home was listed recently with Michael Miguel at Keller Williams Landmark Realty toward the top of the neighborhood’s market at $2,957,000, and comes with all the amenities one would expect at that price.
There are nine bedrooms and seven and a half bathrooms throughout four levels, which includes an attic with a skylight. Custom finishes, bamboo flooring and marble inlays are found throughout the residence, and the master suit has a Jacuzzi.
