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.

Hefty oak and glass double doors lead to a dramatic foyer lined with original plaster and woodwork. The well-preserved inlaid parquet floor has been polished to an amber glow.

A sitting room opens to a piano room with a side door leading to the porch. The spacious formal dining room is framed by a coffered ceiling. A massive eat-in kitchen, lit by windows and two skylights, boasts a classic commercial grade Garland stove

There’s outdoor space, too, including a grassy, shaded garden and a mature Norway Maple.

Lit by a stained-glass window, the stairway to the second floor opens onto a landing off which you’ll find three bedrooms, two full bathrooms and a laundry room. An elegant master suite has a wall of custom closets and a luxurious bath with a deep soaking tub.

On the top floor are four more rooms and another bath with a clawfoot bathtub. If you dream of a romantic garret, the space tucked into the top of the home’s turret is a dream come true with its light-filled octagonal design. In addition to all of this vertical space, an unfinished basement provides even more potential.

The property’s current owners and neighbors are working toward getting approval on a shared driveway to be installed between this house and the neighboring one, which, if approved, would provide the new owner with parking for two cars.
