Forest Hills Gardens–the first garden city in NYC and one of the oldest planned neighborhoods in the country–is known for its wealth of Tudor-style homes that make it resemble an English village. One of these homes, located on a storybook block, has just hit the market for $2,595,000. The brick beauty was built in 1930 and has five bedrooms, four bathrooms, and a fully finished basement rec room, all with lovely architectural details.

The home is three stories plus a basement and has a generous backyard, rear deck, and street-facing terrace. It totals 2,682 square feet.

A sunny foyer opens into the living room, which has a wood-burning fireplace, attractive moldings, and beamed ceilings. It’s adjacent to the formal dining room that has French doors leading to the rear patio.

The kitchen is off the dining room and also has access to the patio. It has quartz countertops, commercial-grade appliances, custom cabinetry, and a built-in banquette.

Off the kitchen, back in the front of the house, is a cozy den, complete with a window seat overlooking the street.

There are three bedrooms and a full bathroom on the second floor.

Also on the second floor is the primary bedroom suite, which has another wood-burning fireplace and an en-suite bathroom and opens to the terrace.

There are two more bedrooms on the third level. They both have very large walk-in closets and pitched ceilings with window seats.

The basement has a large recreation room, separate laundry room, full bath, and home office.

A driveway leads to a two-car garage and a lush backyard.
