There are plenty of opportunities to buy a luxury home in Lancaster County but finding one that offers a bird’s-eye view of a downtown renaissance, and a chance to be a part of it, is rare.
That rare opportunity exists at 101NQ, the transformative mixed-use space at the corner of North Queen and Orange streets, part of a revitalization effort that also includes the new Barney Ewell Plaza and a new Lancaster Public Library.
Once the windowless Bulova Building, 101NQ is now a striking showpiece with a glass façade and a new purpose as a home to street-level high-end retail shops, second- and third-floor office spaces and upper-level luxury condominiums.
“101NQ is such a great place to live,” says Anne Lusk of Lusk and Associates Sotheby’s International Realty, the listing agent for the condominiums.
Thanks to its convenient location in the heart of downtown, condo owners may never need to take their vehicle out of the ground-floor garage. 101NQ is within easy walking distance of Central Market, restaurants, specialty shops, the post office, drug stores, Lancaster General Hospital, historic sites, parks and so much more that Lancaster city has to offer.
“It is truly just a unique situation,” Lusk says. “You couldn’t ask for a better location.”
And you couldn’t ask for a better home at 101NQ than Unit 404, a spacious west-facing condo with spectacular sunset views and a host of upgrades, from bamboo flooring to custom cabinetry. With the current owners relocating out of state, this like-new condo will be ready to welcome new residents in October.
The home has two ensuite bedrooms, plus a study or hobby room, and a dining area and living room with a Mendota full-view luxury gas fireplace.
The gourmet kitchen features a Bluestar range with Zephyr range hood, Miele dishwasher, sub-zero refrigerator and Kinetico K5 drinking water station with reverse osmosis system. The kitchen, office, baths and laundry all have custom cabinets by Red Rose Cabinetry with pull-out chrome shelving in the master, guest and laundry base units.
The master and guest bathrooms also feature Corian showers, Sidler LED mirror cabinets, Aquabrass faucets and an electric floor warming system by Schluter-Ditra-Heat. ADA compliant blocking in the bathrooms allows for the future installation of grab bars.
A large outdoor terrace overlooks the new Barney Ewell Plaza and offers year-round enjoyment thanks to an electronically operated louvered roof that can open or close with the touch of a button. The terrace is the perfect spot for plants and flowers to thrive.
The home also has a tankless water heater and water softener.
“The owners put a lot of care and thought into it,” Lusk says. “It’s a magnificent unit. What I love is it has a very timeless, classic design … It would be beautiful now, it would be beautiful 10 years ago, and it would be beautiful 20 years from now.”
That beauty is magnified by the expansive west-facing windows that not only offer stunning views of the city skyline but also bathe the residence in natural light.
In addition to the residence itself and the many downtown amenities right at the doorstep of 101NQ, condo owners also have access to a community room on the fourth floor and a dedicated garage with private elevator on the ground floor. Unit 404 has two parking spaces with a charging station for electric cars, along with a large storage area on the garage level.
As part of the Local Economic Revitalization Tax Assistance program (LERTA), 101NQ condo owners benefit from a discounted tax for a set period of time.
Unit 404 is priced at $1,050,000.
