Situated on an unusually large, approximately one third of an acre, property, this English inspired architectural masterpiece and its landscaped gardens are truly one of the finest properties in Forest Hills Gardens. Its classic Tudor design is signature of the fine, impressively built homes in the community and as such is featured prominently in the mosaic of Forest Hills Gardens that overlooks passersby along Queens Blvd where it is greatly admired by all who view it. Upon entering through the arched door into the front entry hall with walls ornately designed with plaster relief and frieze moldings, and leaded glass emblazoned with a coat of armor, one is transported into a former era. The welcoming Grand Center Hall has peaked archways that lead to a spacious Living Room and banquet-sized Dining Room that are the perfect setting for gracious entertaining. The beautiful, original variable width hardwood floors and stucco walls provide an air of character and grace. The Living Room welcomes you with a wood burning fireplace and a window seat surrounded by leaded glass windows graced with rare color etchings of the home and the famous archway from Station Square that leads into Forest Hills Gardens. A pair of leaded glass French Doors leads from the Living Room to the Library/Music Room which is surrounded by windows. The Center Hall also has a marble powder room and a leaded glass door that opens to the breakfast room which has a picturesque view of the lush landscaped gardens, patios and stone water fountain beyond. The expansive rear garden is ideal for relaxing and entertaining! It is surrounded by a 5' stucco wall and fence for year-round privacy. The country kitchen which is newly remodeled with granite countertops, tumbled marble backsplash and high-end built-in appliances, leads to a mud room and a heated, attached two car Garage. A gracious center hall staircase has finely crafted wood balusters and rarely seen newel posts that continue to the third floor. Each landing has a large leaded glass window that affords a sweeping view of the lovely property below, and the first landing has a door to a hidden back stairway that leads down to the Kitchen. The Master Suite boasts, in addition to a marble Master Bath, deep closets, a wood-burning fireplace and a secluded patio retreat not visible from the street. The second floor also has two additional spacious bedrooms with very large closets and a newly redone designer hall Bath. The third floor has two bedrooms with custom built-in furniture, walk-in closets and a full bath. The lower level of the home has a wet bar, an entertainment area and a wine cellar with slate floors, a photographer's dark room with a sink, and a laundry room with two washers and two driers. The famed architect, Grosvenor Atterbury, is said to have been influenced by the English Cotswolds when he lovingly designed every detail of this magnificent home. Property Size: 108'x140'.
