Jan.January 23, 2014 05:10 PM

Now that Queens is poised to become the new Brooklyn, property prices are on the rise.

But just how much are homes going for across the East River? According to Curbed, a $3.8 million brick mansion at 112-38 72nd Avenue in Forest Hills tops the luxury list, complete with windows made of one-way glass and a bidet.

Number two is a brick Mansion at an unspecified locale in Howard Beach, complete with a five-bedroom, five-bath spread, heated pool and jacuzzi. The asking price is $2.8 million — a number that has held steady since the property hit the market in August of 2011. A penthouse unit at 46-30 Center Boulevard, in Long Island City’s the View condominium building, holds the third most expensive spot with a price tag of $2.5 million, an Italian mosaic wall and a marble-floored bathroom.

A $2.5 million Rockaways beach house at 184 Beach 143rd Street with an in-ground pool and two fireplaces and a $2.3 million Beechhurst house at 157-11 Powells Cove round out the top five. The former of which boasts a home theater, double jacuzzi, walk-in shower with 15 shower heads and heated floors throughout. [Curbed]Julie Strickland
