Queens, NY (PRWEB) December 4, 2008

The Kamali Organization has announced the sale of a two-story penthouse at The Classic at Kew Gardens (http://www. classickewgardens. com/#p=classic_residences&n=kitchen), the new collection of 52 luxury New York City condominium homes located in this sought-after Queens neighborhood.

The fifth-floor penthouse -- the largest home in the distinctive six-story building -- features 1,385 square feet of living space with three bedrooms, three baths and four terraces offering 561 square feet of outdoor space.

According to The Marketing Directors, Inc., the building's marketing and exclusive sales agent, the home sold for $850,000.

"The Classic continues to gain traction with buyers from throughout New York City who recognize the extraordinary value offered in these upscale condominium homes (http://www. classickewgardens. com/#p=classic_residences&n=bathroom)," notes Jackie Kamali, a principal of the development firm that bears his name.

"We're gaining a competitive edge in the marketplace thanks to our combination of exciting floor plans, upscale amenities and a desirable location in the heart of Kew Gardens with easy access to Manhattan. Buyers also appreciate The Classic's 15-year tax abatement which enhances the value even more."

The penthouse was sold to current Manhattanites who are leaving their Park Avenue South apartment for The Classic.

"Our buyers were attracted to the home's two-story layout and numerous custom appointments - including an expansive skylight which helps flood the home in natural light," notes Jacqueline Urgo, President of The Marketing Directors, Inc. "The four terraces were also a hot selling point as they provide opportunities for extending the living experience outdoors."

The Classic at Kew Gardens perfectly blends old world charm with modern amenities (http://www. classickewgardens. com/#p=home) due to a unique architectural design that combines four newly added floors with two existing levels that all pay homage to the English Colonial design commonly found in Kew Gardens. Prices for the condominium homes initially begin in the mid-$300,000s. The first homeowners will begin moving in this spring.

Manhattan-style amenities and services include The Classic Club (http://www. classickewgardens. com/#p=classic_lifestyle&n=classic_club) which features a fitness center with state-of-the-art equipment, a children's playroom and an exquisitely decorated social lounge with a catering kitchen, dining room, game table and a large plasma TV. There's also The Salon, a relaxed setting for reading the newspaper or utilizing the available wireless capabilities, as well as complimentary bike storage, available personal storage, and an attended indoor garage.

"Elegance and sophistication are personified in The Classic's exquisite attended lobby which was designed by the renowned interior designer Amir Khamneipur Design and boasts Tao Ci Botticino diagonally laid flooring with a coco colored border and walls covered in custom leather panels with recessed lighting," notes Ms. Urgo. "A doorman will be on hand to greet residents when they arrive home and assist with package deliveries and more."

The elegant condominium residences at The Classic combine stylish interiors with an abundance of private outdoor space. The homes offer from 574 to 1,385 square feet of luxury living space, along with a considerable array of high-end amenities and finishes.

The homes feature carefully-selected custom appointments, including gourmet kitchens (http://www. classickewgardens. com/#p=classic_residences&n=kitchen) with Aquamarina granite countertops, espresso-colored cabinetry, and GE® Profile appliances. Lavish master baths feature Calacutta marble counters, Tao Ci porcelain tile floors and showers, glass enclosed shower stalls and Kohler fixtures. Many of the homes also boast considerable outdoor space ranging from unique windowed loggias to expansive terraces.

The Classic is located in the heart of a neighborhood that offers the allure and privacy of a genteel, suburban environment, yet is within easy reach of the modern conveniences and amenities of a cosmopolitan City.

"Kew Gardens (http://www. classickewgardens. com/#p=classic_location&n=area_images) is only minutes from Manhattan, yet has retained the same charm and character of an old fashioned neighborhood," adds Ms. Urgo. "The area is extremely pedestrian-friendly with an abundance of shopping, entertainment and cultural opportunities to reduce the need to travel by car. What's more, The Classic's commuter-friendly location on Kew Gardens Road just minutes from the E and the F subway lines, the Long Island Railroad and the Grand Central, Van Wyck and Jackie Robinson Parkway brings all that New York City has to offer close to home."
