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.
The home was built in 1920, but was recently renovated to include modern amenities such as a high-end kitchen, radiant heat floors, and a finished basement with all updated mechanicals and utilities.
The marble entrance leads to the family room, which has a wood-burning fireplace.
Through there is the lovely dining room. A decorative wrought-iron screen leads to the sunroom, where the original exposed ceiling beams and terra cotta tiles are on full display.
The kitchen has granite counters, stainless steel appliances, radiant heated floors, and a breakfast counter.
From the kitchen, walk out into the magical garden with a flagstone patio, lots of landscaping, and access to the garage.
On the second floor is the master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and a home office that leads to one of the balconies. Two more bedrooms are on the third floor.
