The most expensive house currently on the market in Queens is listed at a whopping $4.15 million in Forest Hills, according to data compiled by Localize.city.
The 6-bedroom, 4.5-bath detached brick home is located at 20 Cranford St inside “The Gardens,” a private protected community designed by Frederick Law Olmsted Jr and Grosvenor Atterbury in 1909. It offers a spacious 7,035 square feet of living area and a 9,868 square foot double-lot.
“The garden level features an extraordinary double height center hall with curved staircase and a powder room, flanked by a formal living room and a formal dining room, both with oversized bay windows overlooking manicured gardens and historic homes,” the home’s listing on Compass reads.
The home also comes with a large finished basement, eat-in kitchen, laundry room, work out area, attached two-stall garage and driveway. It’s close to great schools like P.S. 101, which Localize.city’s analysis rates highly, as well as the West Side Tennis Club, Forest Hills Stadium, and restaurants and shops on Austin Street.
“Arguably America’s best planned garden community, the lush grounds, green spaces and quiet streets of Forest Hills Gardens make it the ideal place to live, all just minutes away from Manhattan via the L.I.R.R. and E and F express trains,” the listing states.
