2012: the year of the Forbes house? The Malcolm S. Forbes House at 11 West 12th Street sold in April at a 47.5 percent discount, and now the year is bookended by the sale of another Forbes house, Timothy Forbes's place nearby at 60 West 11th Street.The house sold for $11.5 million, The Real Deal notes, after asking $12.5 million. So maybe Timothy Forbes learned something from the family's PriceChopper troubles.
The 5BR, 3.5BA house was built in 1842 (but has, the listing hastens to note, been restored since). The decor is a puzzling mix of styles, which is probably why our favorite area is the garden.
