EXCLUSIVE LISTING OF TERRACE SOTHEBY'S INTERNATIONAL REALTY.
As one of the most prestigious and architecturally distinctive homes, this perfectly scaled 7 bedroom, 7 bathroom house is positioned on Greenway Terrace at the entrance to Forest Hills Gardens. This stunning Tudor residence was designed in 1920 by renowned American architect Grosvenor Atterbury. Atterbury is most recognized for designing The Metropolitan Museum's American Wing, the Parish Art Museum, Main Street Southampton, and the Rockefeller Stone Barns.
This Gardens' home, with its uncompromised architectural integrity and highest standards of interior décor, conveys the utmost charm and warmth. Sunlit and spacious rooms lend themselves to everyday modern living with substantial space for home office and workout rooms, children's playroom, wine cellar, and indoor and outdoor entertaining.
Aside from its prominent position along the Terrace,a glance beyond the stone, brick and ivy-covered entryway reveals a masterfully designed example of Atterbury's well respected style. Design elements include 4 original fireplaces, a Butler's pantry with beautifully restored cabinetry, expansive second floor landing, rear staircase, original leaded glass pane windows, volume ceilings, decorative copper exterior elements, and tapestry brickwork. The rooms with lovely sunlit views overlook the beautiful community open space along Flagpole Green. The house, with its separate 2 car garage and upper studio space, is situated on an estate sized landscaped property.
An integral part of one of America’s oldest planned communities, the home is perfectly located just minutes from Station Square, neighborhood schools, and the well known West Side Tennis Club, which offers professional grade tennis, pool and dining facilities. It is just a few minutes from public transportation including the LIRR, several express and local subway lines, andis convenient to shopping areas and restaurants. It is approximately 15 minutes by rail to Manhattan, in close proximity to highways and both NYC’s major airports, and nearby to Forest Park with horseback riding, golf, and dedicated biking and running paths.
