Property Details

Some wonderful things happened in 1935. Amelia Earhart flew solo across the Pacific, Elvis Presley was born, & the home on 1632 University was built. Here we are, 90 years later, & University is still standing strong - more beautiful than the builder probably ever imagined it could be. This home has been lovingly & thoughtfully restored! Original moldings & refinished hardwoods retain its character. Main level beams with natural light. Have your morning coffee & afternoon tea in the sunroom facing the ample back garden. Flanking the living room is a very cool flex space - an art studio, office, yoga room - the choice is yours! Granite in the kitchen & baths. Prime suite is on the main level but there are 2 large & sunny beds along with a big, bright bath upstairs. Deep closets in each room, a huge unfinished basement, & a massive 2 car garage allow you all the storage you need. An all new roof, HVAC, plumbing, electrical, and water heater. Enjoy Forest Hills park - it is right across the street! If you've been waiting for the perfect home moments from downtown, look no further than this - Fantastic in Forest Hills.
