Extraordinary, expansive and exquisite describes this palatial Victorian home. Located in Ditmas Park, which many consider one of the most coveted areas in Brooklyn, consisting of polychromatic tree-lined streets and an eclectic array of early 20th century architecture.
Peeking out amid a lush canopy of mature trees, this palatial treasure will transport you back to a previous era. This home is full to the brim with thoughtfully restored original details. In your tour you will find perfectly preserved parquet floors, artisanal plasterwork, stunning stained-glass windows, original wainscotting, and an entryway staircase fit for royalty. With an abundance of natural light, rooms to work from home and copious amounts of space to entertain, host events or spend time with the family; this historic, hulking home is full of character and endless possibilities. Once upon a time this notable property was a prohibition era 'clubhouse' (The Capitol Club), a catering hall, and since 1942 was a place of worship. Recently restored and re-awakened, you will be surprised to find a real, one-of-a kind 1920's style ballroom in the rear of this stand-alone Victorian house! Whether you're purchasing for a personal residence, event space (or both), this home will be sure to excite. Bring your architect/contractor to re-envision the layout, an optimize it for your needs!
Windows everywhere flood the house with sunlight from dawn until dusk. Upon entering the property you will be greeted to one of the most majestic staircases you have ever seen. A rainbow palate emanates from the stained-glass windows on the second floor landing. The first floor is currently set up as an event space, with a recently renovated muti-stalled bathroom, coat check room, multiple sitting areas and of course, the massive ballroom. There is also a sizable catering kitchen in the basement along with a multitude of ancillary storage spaces. With 7ft+ ceiling height, it would be entirely possible to finish this basement and add an additional living space, gym area, cinema ect. The possibilities are endless.
If this is not enticing enough, the second floor hosts another 2 bathrooms, 3 bedrooms, and a small kitchen. All the rooms are generously sized, and have no shortage of light. One flight up you'll find another full bath and 3 more bedrooms. Additionally, there is a tremendous amount of space in the eaves (currently used as storage space) that is waiting to be incorporated into the rooms. Moreover, this home offers a driveway, a classic Ditmas Park front porch and plenty of yard space.
Sitting at appx 6200sq ft (inclusive of the cellar space), 1016 Beverley road is a once in a lifetime opportunity to create the home, house of worship or event space of your dreams!
