Forest Hills is known for its quaint-looking yet pretty enormous Tudor homes, but they don't come to market all that frequently. Located on a street lined with other picturesque gingerbread house lookalikes, 20 Norden Road has six bedrooms, 4.5 baths, and clocks in at over 3,000 square feet total. Original details aboundin the oak hardwood floors, the stone fireplace, the slate stone patio, and the yellow-enlivened facadeplus there's a two-car garage, private driveway, fully furnished basement and sun room. The brick-clad home in the tight-knit, planned community of Forest Hills Gardens is asking $2.2M. Sure, it's no Staten Island-style manse and doesn't come with a private marina, but with some fixing up it could be just as grand.
