For $633K: A French Normandy Spinoff w/ Cathedral Ceilings

New, 2 comments


Forest Glen, with its occasional French Normandy-style prewar house, bears some resemblance to Beverly on the opposite side of the city. A pretty outstanding example just hit the market, asking $633K. The three-bed cottage leads with a customary but gorgeous sunken living room with beamed cathedral ceilings and a medley of 1920s-reinforcing furniture. The dining room responds with a "cove ceiling" (slightly bowed) and "gracious" proportioning (brokerbabble mainstay). A cedar-paneled family room with vaulted ceilings and fireplace competes successfully with the central living room. French doors lead from here to a deck and landscaped yard. And the kitchen, well, it's a kitchen. Dig.
