Turrets, stonework, stained glass, and inlaid wood: This three-bedroom, two-bath house in Bayside is loaded with design features that evoke the Middle Ages.

Listed for $988,000 by Compass, the house may appeal to buyers seeking that suburbs-in-the-city feel, as it's located in Bayside, one block from Alley Pond Park and three from Bell Boulevard, the Queens neighborhood's restaurant- and bar-lined thoroughfare. Plus, the Bayside Long Island Rail Road stop is a little under a mile away.

The living room, with its stone fireplace, exposed wooden ceiling beams, and stained glass windows, has a definite Game of Thrones vibe.

A curved doorway leads into the dining room, accented by a Tiffany chandelier. Two windows bring some light into the dramatic, wood-paneled space.

You'll find more wood grain on the kitchen cabinetry, which looks more mid-century than medieval, and offers ample storage. 

Upstairs are the three bedrooms. The master bedroom's corner position means it's well illuminated from multiple exposures, and it has an en-suite bath. In another of the bedrooms, all that wood paneling feels a bit 1970s, though on the upside, the listing says that each bedroom has a spacious closet. There's more storage in the second bathroom, as well as another stained glass window.

You'll find another unusual feature in the finished basement: A striking, cone-shaped fireplace, along with a den, laundry room, and more storage.

Out back is a paved patio and yard with room for outdoor entertaining. The house is equipped with central air, and, befitting its suburbs-in-the-city status, there's a garage.
