Tudor Revival in Quincy’s Forbes Hill neighborhood is Home of the week

EVERYTHING -> {lastPubDate=20130621165106, author={picture=, twitter=, source=, email=, name=}, bodyContent=

Wrapped by trees and bushes, the stone-faced tower and slate roof of this Tudor Revival home juts out of the foliage. The tower creates a circular entryway leading to a reception area that has a curving stairway to the second floor. Two steps down is a living room with dark, exposed beams and a wood mantel around the fireplace, which is carved with grapes and leaves. Adjacent is a three-season room that leads to a patio and hot tub pool.

The dining room has original crown moulding, wainscoting, and oak floors. Tudor arches separate the rooms. The updated kitchen has Travertine marble, black granite counters, and recessed lighting. A huge pantry with built-in cabinetry connects kitchen and dining room. A first-floor bedroom has built-in shelving. On the second floor, the master is spacious, has double closets and its own bath. The family bath has a deep soaking tub with shower. The finished basement has an office and a stone fireplace. There is an exterior 40-amp plug for car-charging. Carrie Reid of Streamline Brokerage in Cambridge will hold an open house 1 to 3 p.m. Sunday.
