Real Estate Agent with Westbrook Realty Broker-Owner

Forest Hills Plat in Grand Rapids Michigan is a well established

home neighborhood located just west of Forest Hills Drive and

just south of Fulton Street.  Built in the late 1950's and 1960's

by R.D. Brooks, this development has a community outdoor pool,

community association, and common park area for residents who

 belong to the association.  This report also includes The Vineyards,

which is a newer subdivision just north of Forest Hills Plat.

It is in Grand Rapids Township, prestigious Forest Hills Schools, and

 close to the I96 Expressway for fast access to many parts of the city.

 Just minutes away from the Forest Hills shopping area, 28th Street

retail corridor, and about 10 minutes from downtown Grand Rapids or

Gerald R. Ford Airport. A very desirable suburban area to live in,

valued for its safety, quality construction, and convenience.
