About 342 Burns Street, Forest Hills Gardens,
EXCLUSIVE LISTING OF TERRACE SOTHEBY'S INTERNATIONAL REALTY.
Nestled in beautiful Forest Hills Gardens, this English Tudor townhouse offers charm, quiet, and all of the conveniences of suburban New York City living. With its up-kept decorative arbor, pebble-stone porch, clay tiled roof and colorful garden, this timeless property is truly characteristic of the charm in this one-of-a-kind community.
As designed by architect Grosvenor Atterbury, the turreted entryway of the house leads through a French door into a bright and spacious living room with large windows and a wood burning fireplace. Distinguished architectural features of the home are prominent between its crown moldings, hardwood floors, stately staircase and banisters across three levels and wainscoting in the formal dining room. A bank of large windows in the dining room allows light to filter in through the room. The kitchen is well appointed with white cabinetry and appliances and several windows that bring in bright natural light. Enjoy dining alfresco and hosting guests on the lovely outdoor patio conveniently accessed from the kitchen door.
On the second and third floors are four large bedrooms and two hall bathrooms. Built in closets on the landings provide rarely found additional storage space. A full staircase on the third level leads to a rarely found fourth story with skylight that can easily be finished and converted to approximately 400 square feet of additional living space. The already finished basement is an additional 772 square feet approximately, with a private room, laundry area and half bath.
A fantastic location, within minutes to the LIRR with trains going directly to Penn and Grand Central Madison stations and the E/F/M/R subway lines, Forest Hills is a commuter's dream. The community also offers fine schools and parks, many restaurants and shops on Austin St. and nearby areas, and the historic West Side Tennis Club.
