JACKSON HEIGHTS — A four-bedroom apartment in a historic building sold for $925,000 — the highest price paid for an apartment in Jackson Heights, according to the broker and property records.

The Towers apartment at 33-52 81st St., near 34th Avenue — which comes with two bathrooms and a wood-burning fireplace — beat out the previous record $915,000 sale of a similar apartment in the same complex. The unit officially closed in February, according to sale records.

The complex, made up of eight buildings in the Jackson Heights Historic District, features some of the largest apartments in the area, according to Daniel Karatzas, an associate broker with Beaudoin Realty Group, who released a report on real estate sales in the 11372 zip code this year.

Apartment and house sales in the rest of Jackson Heights have been low during the first quarter of the year, but prices are up compared to last year, Karatzas said.

A duplex in the walk-up Hampton Court, which combined two four-room apartments, closed this quarter for $850,000, according to real estate records.

And a massive single-family home on 75th Street near 37th Road sold for $1.36 million, slightly less than the $1.6 million listing price.

The home, built in the 1920s, included seven bedrooms, a "parlour room" and space for multiple cars in the driveway.
