New, 14 comments

The stunning century-old home comes with resplendent details like stained glass

Anyone with dreams of grandeur and $4.5 million to spare should check out the charming French Tudor home at 140 Greenway North that just hit the market. Set amid the secluded greenery of exclusive Forest Hills Gardens, the Queens estate "preserves the refined character of a golden era," according to its listing.

And the house is refined indeed: the dignified 21-room, eight-bedroom property comes with three wood-burning fireplaces, Art Deco bathrooms, parquet hardwood floors, and custom-carved stone and wood finishings, to name just a few of its more notable amenities. The house, built in 1920, looks like something straight out of The Great Gatsby.

On the first floor, a grand foyer leads into a living room that’s adjacent to a music room, a library with stained glass windows, and a dining room with Juliet balconies overlooking the garden. The master bath on the second floor features a deep soaking bathtub with a separate steam shower. The basement gives way to a curved wooden wet bar and entertainment room that round out the stunning century-old property.
