Most Expensive Homes on the Market: A $4.85 Million House in Forest Hills

For those who need four dishwashers.

This five-story home in Forest Hills fuses a traditional facade with a sleek, modern interior. Built in 1991 by architect Jim Gibson, the nearly 9,000-square-foot six-bedroom boasts park views and a stunning 50-foot swimming pool. Other highlights: On the first floor, inlaid wood floors open to a living room featuring a wood-burning fireplace with a marble hearth; a huge dining room with a cantilevered, marble-topped buffet; a rear family room with a stone fireplace and French doors leading to a private deck; and—here’s the downstairs crown jewel—an über-modern kitchen designed by contemporary architect Robert Gurney, which offers a marble-topped island, a built-in coffee maker, a Gaggenau stovetop and dual wall ovens, three sinks, four dishwashers, and a breakfast nook that sits adjacent to a full wall of windows. Upstairs, there’s a master suite with another wood-burning fireplace, two walk-in closets, and a master bath with a whirlpool tub and steam spa shower, as well as three more guest bedrooms. Elsewhere, there’s second family room that opens to a covered terrace, a billiards room, and a wine cellar. Outside, the aforementioned pool shares yard space with a pool house and a secluded garden. The home is listed at $4.85 million. Read on for a tour, then go to Washington Fine Properties for the complete details.
