Architect and urban planner Grosvenor Atterbury made Forest Hills Gardens the picturesque enclave it is today. A four-bedroom house he designed, which has impressive vaulted and beamed ceilings in its three-story-high living room, landed on the market last week with an ask of $2.599 million. There are also "original Dutch doors," wide-plank wood flooring, and a lovely backyard spread over a quarter of an acrewith a stone patio, volleyball court, and "filtered running-water fishpond." Just be warned: in landmarked Forest Hills Gardens, prices are jumping and inventory is high.
