This freestanding Colonial Revival wood frame with a porch in Ditmas Park could not be more attractive, but it’s going to need a lot of work. We suspect leaks and mold may be an issue, going by the photos in the listing, and it will probably need all the other usual upgrades as well.
The front of the house, located at 476 East 18th Street, was used as a doctor’s office, but the partitions and extra bathroom in the hall look easy to remove.
Even so, the house appears remarkably intact, with all its moldings, doors, staircase, and stained glass. It’s landmarked and has been in the same family for decades, according to public records. It was designed by architect A. White Pierce in 1901 for Charles Cooper, a mechanic, according to the designation report.
The listing says the house needs TLC and is being sold as is. What do you think of it and the ask of $1,550,000?
