Want space? Here's a detached, four-bedroom, two-bath house with a front yard, driveway, and garage listed for under $700,000. Located in St. Albans, Queens, 120-08 196th St.  was built in 1945 and is listed for $675,000.

Even though it appears that it was just sold in December for $335,000 and treated to a significant renovation, many of its period details remain. The home has stained glass windows, arched doorways, built-ins, and hardwood floors. A section of the slate roof on the facade however, looks to have been replaced by incongruous white siding. (It's likely there's a good reason for this—one that a new owner probably wouldn't have wanted to deal with.) 

The townhouse has a separate dining room. 

The kitchen is fully renovated.

Both bathrooms are new as well. 

The basement, which has a separate entrance is fully finished. 

While you'll probably need that driveway and garage, the townhouse is a few blocks from the Long Island Railroad. Major retail can be found a few blocks away on Linden Boulevard, with even more options a bit further on Merrick Boulevard.
