Located on one of the quietest tree-lined streets in NYC, 20 Cranford is at the Center of Forest Hills Gardens, nestled between Greenway South and Russell Place. The Gardens, conceived in 1909 and masterfully designed by Frederick Law Olmsted Jr. and Grosvenor Atterbury, is a private and protected community brimming with extraordinary old world charm. 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.

This spacious and bright contemporary two-story detached brick home sits on a rarely found 9,868 square foot double-lot and boasts six bedrooms, four and a half bathrooms, a huge finished basement and an attached two-stall car garage with an oversized driveway. The home has a total living area of approximately 7,035 square feet.

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 eat in kitchen features stainless steel appliances, a large pantry and a breakfast area accented by a bay window and skylight. A library/den, an en-suite master bedroom and two additional bedrooms and a full laundry room complete the main floor. The second floor is comprised of three large bedrooms, two full bathrooms and ample closets and storage space. A fully finished 2,725 sq. ft. basement includes a sleeping area, work out space, full bathroom and additional storage and play areas.

The lush coveted grounds of Forest Hills Gardens are an exceptional place to live, offering the most serene, healthy and convenient lifestyle anywhere in the five boroughs. 20 Cranford Street is close to excellent schools, the world renowned West Side Tennis Club, Forest Hill Stadium, charming shops, restaurants and cafes on Austin Street as well as Forest Hills L.I.R.R. Station and NYC MTA Express E and F trains. The neighborhood is protected by a no fly zone ordinance and is perfectly located midway between NYC’s two major international airports and only 15 minutes by rail to midtown east and midtown west Manhattan.
