Description

This stunning 1925 single-family townhouse in the Sunnyside Heights Historic District was thoughtfully gut-renovated and re-engineered by Castrucci Architects in 2018 to conform with passive house standards while preserving as many original details as possible, and is the pinnacle of clean modern design and energy efficiency. There is nothing quite like this home on the market and we are excited to share it with you.

...This stunning 1925 single-family townhouse in the Sunnyside Heights Historic District was thoughtfully gut-renovated and re-engineered by Castrucci Architects in 2018 to conform with passive house standards while preserving as many original details as possible, and is the pinnacle of clean modern design and energy efficiency. There is nothing quite like this home on the market and we are excited to share it with you.


First, the aesthetics: this charming 3BR/2BA home sits on one of the quietest and most beautiful tree-lined blocks in the neighborhood. This home has a bright and open feel with large triple-paned windows throughout, both maximizing light and minimizing ambient sounds; it’s pin-drop quiet. The living space consists of an open living-dining-kitchen floorplan on the main floor and three comfortably-proportioned bedrooms and one bath on the upper level. The kitchen is large, modern and designed for the home chef, featuring Bosch and Summit appliances and luxurious soapstone countertops plus ample storage. Original hardwood floors were maintained throughout the home. There’s also a finished, windowed basement accessible from within the house or by separate entrance, where you’ll find laundry, mechanicals, and additional space for recreation or storage. The private rear garden is really quite special, boasting both a dining/grilling patio, a vegetable garden, and lush perennial gardens including a mature fig tree and additional lounging areas. In addition, this home shares a lush inner garden with the properties adjacent, maintained by the garden committee, which creates a wall of vegetation affording privacy and a sense that you’re in the woods as well as safe harbor for any number of local birds and fauna.


In addition to its beauty and charm, this home’s passive house attributes make it a unique find in this neighborhood. These eco features are designed to preserve the home’s internal temperature: the mechanicals include the aforementioned triple-paned windows and insulated doors for a tight seal preventing energy loss, as well as Mitsubishi heating and cooling systems and a Zehnder air filtration system which cleans and recirculates the air and helps efficiently maintain a constant temperature. This home is 100% electric and includes a solar array on the roof which keeps energy bills very low and affords a property tax credit to boot. The architect’s study demonstrated that this home utilizes 60% less energy than the median NYC rowhouse, quite the savings.


Located around the corner from Sunnyside Gardens Park, one of the city’s only private parks featuring tennis courts and playgrounds, as well as several public parks, this home is situated in one of the best spots in the neighborhood. You’ll have easy access to the year-round farmer’s market as well as the shops and restaurants on Skillman and 43rd Ave, and it’s only a few blocks to the commercial corridor on Queens Blvd and the 7 train for a 15 minute commute to midtown.
