A magical three-story storybook home in the prestigious Forest Hills Gardens, minutes away from transportation and bustling city life The House This freestanding three-story, single-family home at 17 Bow Street features original Tudor architecture and a dreamy ivy-covered facade. Built in 1905, this portal to another place and time offers 6 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, a built-in car garage, and sits on a 92.42 x 24 ft lot. The backyard opens onto a large open grassy field with access to you & your... neighbors own private road. The home has been lovingly maintained by its owners of the last 35 years, with original woodwork, co-existing organically with tastefully updated details. Past the porch-adorned main entrance, the first floor ushers one into the foyer, from which a spacious living room opens to the left, featuring an original wood-burning fireplace and a stunning winter garden. This glass-enclosed rounded veranda provides a commanding view onto cozy private quarters in front of the house. To the right of the foyer is the formal dining room with a dedicated buffet area. Further in is the fully-equipped kitchen with a separate windowed breakfast area and maids room/nanny suite. The original staircase stands proudly in the middle of the house, leading onward and upward to the second floor, which boasts a spacious master and second bedroom, along with a windowed bathroom. The third floor has two additional bedrooms, one of which is perfectly suited as a home office with a private balcony and bathroom. The basement surprises with a spacious studio apartment featuring a separate kitchen, one bath, wine cellar and mechanics room. The neighborhoodIn the first decade of the 20th century, renowned architect and urban planner Grosvenor Atterbury and landscape architect Frederick Law Olmsted Jr.son and partner of Frederick Law Olmsted, the landscape architect who co-designed Central Parkreceived a commission to plan a new town on a 140-acre, leafy swath of Queens County. Over the intervening century, Forest Hills Gardens, their masterpiece, has remained one of Americas best-preserved planned communities, retaining much of its idyllic nature. This fairy-tale village of sloping, curved streets contains four parks just for residents and their guests. Inspired by Englands storied Garden Cities Movement, Forest Hills Gardens put in place a covenant limiting industry in order to preserve the idea of country living in the city and create a lasting residential haven. Atterburys love of the Tudor style gave the community the aesthetic that still defines it today. Elegant Tudor-style homes abound. There are towers, spires, Norman-style turrets, fancy brickwork, exposed half-timbers, red-tiled gabled roofs, and mullioned windows everywhere. Named Best Community in 2007 by Cottage Living magazine, Forest Hills Gardens is known as one of the best neighborhoods in the city, with easy access into Midtown via E, F or R subways from the Forest Hills stop; with express taking just about 20 minutes. The Long Island Rail Road leaves from Station Square and arrives at Pennsylvania Station in about 15 minutes. The West Side Tennis Club, Station Square (LIRR), 71st Avenue and bustling Austin Street with all neighborhood amenities are all just a 3-minute walk away. 17 Bow Street provides a unique opportunity to enjoy suburban living all while being just moments away from all the city has to offer. Mildred Pierce, a period HBO series about 1930s Beverly Hills, was filmed here, and the neighborhood played a key role in the Alfred Hitchcock classic Strangers on a Train.
