Forest Hills homes offer unique character, central location

Almost 100 homes have been sold in Forest Hills during the past year but only three are now on the market. 

The larger Midtown Montgomery neighborhood provides residents an ideal launching pad to reach all parts of the Capital City. Forest Hills is bounded by Harrison Road on the south, Perry Hill Road, Atlanta Highway, Greenwood Cemetery and Lee Oaks.

“Forest Hills has a central location, close to Interstate 85 and shopping,” Realtor Brandt Wright said. “Forest Hills is close to almost anything you might need.”

Forest Hills residents can easily access Interstate 85, Atlanta Highway and Perry Hill Road, making a trip to either east Montgomery or downtown a breeze.

Moreland Hills home is a testament to 1990s design: House of the Week

MORELAND HILLS, Ohio — The arches, glass block and minimalist exterior give it away immediately: 30 Easton Lane was built in the 1990s. The home is truly a product of its time, yet it’s unlike anything you’ve seen before.

On the outside, the massive 7,455 sq. ft. structure resembles two modernist barns joined together by a trio of silos. Inside, there are 5 bedrooms and 5.5 bathrooms.

“This home has the wow factor,” says Howard Hanna agent Adam Kaufman, who has the property listed for $1,175,000.
