This magical enclave looks more like an English village than a part of Queens, but, in fact, Forest Hills Gardens was built in the early 20th century to resemble England’s garden cities. The private community consists of more than 800 free-standing and attached houses, of which one of the latter has just hit the market for $2,485,000. The six-bedroom house at 34 Greenway Terrace has the neighborhood’s signature Tudor style, as well as a front patio, rear private parking spot, finished basement, and plenty of preserved details.

Located within the greater Queens neighborhood of Forest Hills, Forest Hills Gardens is one of America’s oldest planned communities. The ivy-covered three-story single-family home at 17 Bow Street, built in 1905, has been lovingly maintained by its owners over the last 35 years. From the outside it’s a picture of storybook charm and Tudor architecture, garage included. Inside is original woodwork as well as six bedrooms. The home’s historic cachet and unique early modernity made it a logical choice for filming “Mildred Pierce,” a period HBO series about 1930’s Beverly Hills. It’s asking $2.795 million.

Dating back to its early 20th-century roots as NYC’s first garden city, Forest Hills Gardens is a treasure trove of historic Tudor homes. This especially enchanting beauty at 45 Markwood Place, just steps from Forest Park, has just hit the market for $1,875,000. Not only does it have all the characteristics of this fairytale-esque style–like exposed ceiling beams, terra cotta tiles, wrought-iron railings, and stained-glass windows–but it boasts a large, lovely backyard patio, two balconies, a one-car garage, and a spacious layout with four bedrooms.
