Welcome to 71-56 Ingram St! This magnificent home is located in Forest Hills, on the corner of Ingram St. and 72nd Ave, just off of Continental Ave. For those not familiar with the area, this is the epicenter of Forest Hills, just a short walk to Austin St, where you can find the Long Island Railroad and express subway lines E and F, any shops you might need, fine dining, urgent care, bakeries, and boutique stores as well as a short walk to Metropolitan Ave, where there is an express bus to Brooklyn. The corner lot is large for the neighborhood with a total of 6000 sq ft. (60x100) and includes a detached 2-car garage. This historic home is a solid brick construction that was gut renovated by its present owners and restored to its previous glory. All finishes and materials used in this renovation were selected for their rarity and fidelity to the old world aesthetic of the home itself. These materials include Indonesian Cherry for the hardwood flooring seen throughout the house- polished and pre-treated to be scratch resistant, porcelain tiles that are heated in a portion of the first floor, quartz countertops, plaster moldings, custom-made wrought iron railings and solid Honduran Mahogany doors throughout the house. With painstaking attention to detail and respect for the structural integrity of the home, space was added on the second floor, the attic was finished as another bedroom/bathroom, and the basement has been completely finished with its own entrance, creating a mother/daughter layout. In addition to restoring and expanding the home, while preserving its original integrity and appeal, the present owners also added many functional and formal features. These include a 2-zone central cooling system, a 3-zone split cooling system, 6 separate heating zones, stainless steel appliances, modern kitchen and bathrooms. They also employed skilled artisans to add custom features like engraved glass doors and windows throughout and a beautiful custom wood carved and wrought iron railing that continues from the entrance foyer up to the 3rd floor. With 5 bedrooms and 4.5 bathrooms, this home has everything and is certainly the best house on the block! In fact, this home's timeless and stately appearance has made it sought after as a location for movie and TV shoots. Come see it in person!
