In Brooklyn’s Prospect Park South Historic District, a block from the park, this Victorian beauty built in 1908 is asking $2,395,000. Per the listing, the home at 85 Westminster Road is a “unique blend of Greek Revival temple style with the asymmetry and turrets of a Queen Anne.” In addition to 3,578 square feet of historic detail-filled living space, it has tons of curb appeal with a grassy green paint job, two-story colonnade, and wrap-around veranda that follows the curve of the turrets.
This freestanding Victorian home was built at 204 Richmond Terrace on the Staten Island waterfront way back in the 1870s. Impressively, it still stands today and has hit the market for $2 million. Lots of historic details, like a curving staircase, fireplaces and wood carvings, can be found inside. Buyers also have some options upon purchase: the zoning allows for an expansion to the home, or they could replace the existing structure with a multi-story building of at least 10 apartments, retail and parking (but we’ve gotta say, we prefer what stands).
It’s hard not to fall in love with this freestanding Victorian at 770 Rugby Road in Ditmas Park, Brooklyn. The house has had the same owner for more than 50 years, and only a few owners since it was built in 1905. The interior is chock full of well-kept period details, not to mention a grassy lawn and a front porch. Are you falling as hard as we are? It’s on the market now for $2.195 million.
