We sincerely hope that whoever buys this Victorian home in Midwood decides to keep at least some of the floral wallpaper, and there’s really no choice when it comes to preserving vintage elements like clawfoot tubs, a vintage Kenmore stove, and stained glass windows. The home was built in 1899, and today it’s an intriguing mix of 19th-century architecture and 1950s retro. It has six bedrooms, a covered porch, driveway, two-car garage, and both front and rear yards, and it’s on the market for $1.8 million.

The home is definitely not lacking in curb appeal. It’s located on East 18th Street, between Avenue I and Avenue J. It’s just a few blocks to the Q train at either Avenue H or Avenue J, the latter of which is right near Di Fara Pizza.

The front porch opens into the 340-square-foot living room, which has oversized windows on three sides.

Off the living room is the formal dining room, where plate rail molding wraps the entire space. There’s also a brick fireplace, beamed ceiling, and a stained glass window. Here, you can see the inlaid hardwood floors that are found throughout the home.

At the rear of the first floor is the eat-in kitchen, which feels like stepping back to the 1950s. An adjacent pantry is another retro throwback, and there’s also a second pantry.

The main stairway to get upstairs is off the living room, but there’s another staircase in the kitchen.

On the second floor, there are four bedrooms and a full bathroom.

Up on the third floor, there are two more bedrooms, one of which has a Juliet balcony, and the second full bathroom that has a vintage clawfoot tub.

There’s also a kitchenette on this floor, complete with an antique stove and porcelain sink.

In the backyard, the two-car garage is covered in ivy, and there’s also a big beautiful tree and landscaping all around.
