In the market for a new house? Franklin Raines is selling. The former Fannie Mae head’s Forest Hills home went on the market two weeks ago. Called Beechwoods, the 98-year-old stucco Colonial sits on more than an acre and has views of nearby Soapstone Valley National Park. Highlights include a family room with cathedral ceiling, a library, a movie theater, a recreation room, and an exercise room. The remodeled kitchen has granite countertops, a skylight, a SubZero refrigerator/freezer, and double Wolf ovens. Outside is a pool, a cabana, a shared tennis court, and a four-car garage.
