This brick house in Forest Hills has five bedrooms, five bathrooms, and a whole lot of charm. The leaded glass windows and hardwood floors help, as do the light fixtures and circular staircase that leads up to an attic full of nooks and crannies. (Part of which, it should be noted, has been turned into a walk-in closet, sloped ceilings be damned.) The basement has a fully equipped guest suite for visitors or perhaps in-laws, with a living room, kitchen, bedroom, and separate entrance. It's asking $2,250,000.
