  • Love Forrest Hills. Huge lots and pretty neighborhood. Wife and I took a shot at a place there a few years ago (shortsale) but walked away when the owner wanted us to basically perpetrate a fraud by paying 25k under the table for some worthless personal property in the house. Should have done it in retrospect.

    What a gorgeous house… love the dark wood floors, all the windows, the built-ins, the sun room, and the backyard patio. Could use some cosmetic upgrades in the kitchen and bathrooms though.

  • Hate the kitchen, but every room in the house is gigantic!

  • Is this decorating a joke? I wouldn’t normally notice or comment on aesthetic details but this is so gaudy it made me cackle at my desk.

  • I think this (or a very similar house on Linnean) was a residence for Opus Dei male numerary members about 10 years ago or so. I visited that residence a couple of times back in the late 90s (I think), and if it is the same house, it is a very nice, classy, and comfortable house, indeed.

  • wow. laura ashley overload.
