    Just before Brooklyn battened down the hatches, this intriguing property popped up for sale. It’s a circa 1920 house in seemingly perfect condition, with original details, a new kitchen and a two-car garage.

    Located at 1316 71st Street in Dyker Heights, the single-family house has high ceilings, original parquet and moldings. There is no floor plan, but the main floor has a sunroom, living room, dining room and kitchen, the listing shows.

    The new kitchen is a looker, with granite counters, slate-look tile floor, white cabinets and dark subway tile backsplash. All the bathrooms shown have also been recently updated in a classic style, including one with white subway tile and a black and white vintage style tile floor.

    Upstairs are four bedrooms and a balcony. The cellar is finished and contains an in-law unit with its own entrance, according to the listing. (Depending on the particulars, a second unit could cause challenges with financing.) There is a shared driveway for the two-car garage, and Google Maps’ satellite view shows a small backyard covered in concrete.

    The house has a new boiler, hot water tank and electric, according to the listing, from Billy E. Apter of RE/MAX Real Estate.

    A 1920 Brooklyn Daily Eagle ad for its next door neighbor describes seven rooms plus a bath on “easy terms.” The builder was Lambert Building Co.

    Its 1940 tax photo shows it surrounded by a cluster of late model sedans but otherwise looking much as it does today, orange tapestry brick and a blue tile roof.

    In the hands of the same family for decades, the house is asking $980,000. What do you think?
