1205 Beverley Road a picturesque Queen Anne style single-family home flush with architectural details, settled in Prospect Park South Historic District, between Westminster and Argyle Roads, was designed in 1899 by architect Henry A. Stunek, and built for developer George T. Moore. Acquainted within a carefully tamed natural landscape with picturesque winding roads of Prospect Park South, this lovely Landmarked building is representative of one of the major trends in American Architecture in the late 19th and early 20th centuries - that of the development of landscaped suburban areas laid out on a street grid, built up with single family houses, successfully combining urban convenience with a rural ambience. The robust but lighthearted exterior of this detached 2,933 SF two-story residence with asymmetrical roof, multiple gables, bays, oriels, tall round shingled tower crowned by a projecting conical roof, open loggia and roomy porch with Doric columns, wrapping around the side of the house showcasing sculptural shapes and ornamentations - hints at the eclecticism of rooms inside. Upon the entrance, decorated with bold-patterned wall-paper and enhanced with multi-colored stained-glass windows, the living, sitting and dining rooms flow from one to another, in asymmetrical pattern around the significant central staircase leading up to the second floor. The gracious living room with bay-windows and southern exposure is flooded with natural light and flows seamlessly into the sitting room with ornate fire place, and adjacent dining room with interior siding panels, exposed wooden beams and bold red and white wall-paper, creating an idyllic atmosphere for entertaining. Off the formal dining room, passing by the butler pantry and powder room, is situated an immense windowed kitchen with access to second floor, basement and a manicured backyard with a wrap-around patio, private driveway and free-standing garage. The second floor of this grandiose home, consisting of Primary Bedroom suite with en-suite shower and two additional extremely spacious bedrooms with a shared full-bath is a perfect white canvas for any creative mind with a desire to convert this sprawling residence into an efficient, fully functioning 21st century home. The third floor comes with four additional bedrooms and a potential of realizing the possibility of adding functionality into an already impressive square footage of the house.
