If you want space, a nice mix of old and new, and a family-friendly area, 67-80 Selfridge St. in Forest Hills might be for you. Listed for $1,2999,000, the three-bedroom, two-and-a-half bath townouse is renovated but retains a lot of 1940s Tudor flair.
Charming touches include hardwood floors, a working fireplace in the living room, crown moldings, and exposed beams.
A slightly raised formal dining room is spacious, and the kitchen has a subway-tile backsplash, granite counters, and stainless-steel appliances. The basement also looks nicely finished.
Upstairs, the master bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, and the two remaining bedrooms share a full bathroom.
A large, handsome stone patio out back offers a place to entertain in the warmer months.
Trains are a bit of a hike: the E, F, M, and R trains at 71st Avenue are about a 20-minute walk, and the Forest Hills Long Island Rail Road station is three quarters of a mile away. But there's an express bus stop just four blocks away, and in good traffic, the bus should get you into Midtown in under 45 minutes, slightly ahead of the trains if you factor in the walking time.
Intrigued? There's an open house by appointment on Saturday, January 20th from 1-2 p.m.
