Forest Hills homes for sale are some of the most attractive and comfortable that you can find in the area of Queens. Our real estate agents love having the opportunity to show people all of the things they may never have expected from this historic borough.
There are many terrific Queens residential neighborhoods you could choose, no matter if you're buying your first home, downsizing, or trading up for a growing family. One of the very best of these--and certainly one of our favorites--is Forest Hills.
Forest Hills encompasses several distinct styles, and one of them is sure to entice any home buyer.
Launched all the way back in 1909, Forest Hills Gardens is one of the most beautiful planned communities anywhere in the state of New York. Upon Queens Boulevard, you'll see a range of smaller condos and co-ops. To the west and south stand historic single-family homes.
Forest Hills combines the diverse amenities of a modern urban cityscape with the quiet and peaceful atmosphere of one of New York's safest suburbs. Although many other fine neighborhoods are just within reach, you will always be convenient to world-class shopping on inviting Austin Street.
Over the passing century, Forest Hills has remained true to its roots thanks to its status as a master planned community. The streets are lovingly maintained by the Forest Hills Gardens Corporation, which also provides support to residents maintaining the 100-year old structures.
The neighborhood is surely one of the most gorgeous that most visitors have laid eyes on since all of the infrastructure and landscaping have been maintained with this long history in mind. The broad, winding streets grant plenty of room to amble and enjoy the atmosphere.
Not surprisingly, the homes are impressive and distinctive. Tudor and colonial single-family homes make up the bulk of the housing stock in the area. Large green spaces have been both preserved and carefully manicured – they're ideal for kids to run and play.
Foodies will be able to taste a wide range of palate-pleasing cuisines throughout Forest Hills and in the Station Square area. Nick's serves the best thin crust pizza. For burgers, you can't go wrong with Dirty Pierre's. And, of course, Bann Thai has been mentioned in the renowned NYC Michelin Guide.
If historic modernity is your taste, Forest Hills is perfect for you. But, no matter what you've been looking for in a home, Laffey Real Estate can help you find it. Our agents have years of experience in and around Long Island and know how to make your house-hunt successful.
