This charming property comes from the Fiske Terrace-Midwood Park Historic District, where historic, freestanding homes are the norm. Fiske Terrace is an enclave of Flatbush, a Brooklyn neighborhood located just east of Ditmas Park. (Ditmas is also known for its freestanding beauties.) Here at 819 East 19th Street, which is now on the market for $1.595 million, there are historic details throughout formal living and dining rooms, as well as an enclosed porch, backyard, private driveway and garage.
The four bedroom, three bathroom home was built in 1910 on a 40-foot by 101-foot lot. Inside on the main floor, both the living and dining rooms are framed by windows. The brick fireplace keeps things cozy and compliments details like parquet floors and moldings.
The wide kitchen has plenty of cabinet storage and a door that leads out to the backyard.
Upstairs, the attic was transformed into a comfortable den. Peaked ceilings make any room look more dramatic!
The four bedrooms, located on the upper levels, have views of treetops and the private backyard down below. The bathroom even has a little stained glass detailing on display.
Here’s a look at the outdoor space, an unbeatable amenity for the coming summer months. One thing that’s not pictured: a finished section of the basement outfitted with a built-in bar from the speakeasy period. This home may feel like an escape from the bustle of New York, but it sound like the perfect place to throw a party. It’s located three blocks east of the Q train stop at Avenue H, and right next to the leafy Brooklyn College.
