Very Big and Very Grand In Forest Hill

New, 6 comments

It's not uncommon to find a plethora of big abodes in Forest Hill, where the average list price is $1,195,000. It should come as no surprise then to find that 225 Magellan, a 5-bed, 5.5-bath home, has just landed on the market with an asking price of $3,295,000. The Tudorish home was built in 1933 and was designed by starchitect Edward E. Young. The listing tells us that it's a "one of a kind property that demonstrates style and examples of art deco interior, as well as other impressive architectural features throughout." We're going to have to agree. Look up, down, to the right or left, and there's something going on. For instance, the giant rotunda entry has travertine floors and a terrazzo staircase with iron and bronze railings. The atrium rotunda (how many rotundas does it take to make a house a home?) has a marble fountain with European figures. And wow, how about that bathroom? Larger than most studio apartments here in the City, we're sure. Other property highlights include a dog run, wine cellar, library, and "original peacock glass stained window."
