In the Fiske Terrace section of the Fiske Terrace-Midwood Park Historic District, this freestanding Arts and Crafts style stucco house could use some work but has a lot of redeeming original details. Built between 1910 and 1920, according to the designation report, 807 East 19th Street has limited photos in its listing, but highlights include a garage and a driveway.
The single-family home, for which a floor plan is not included, is a center hall, with three stories, five bedrooms and 2.5 baths.
The exterior is reminiscent of a bungalow, with a third-floor dormer window and a low-slung porch with red-brick columns.
Inside is at least one original bathroom and an intact living room. Period details include a columned mantel, moldings, parquet floors, French doors and coved ceilings.
From the porch, the home opens to an entry with zigzag-pattern marble tile, period moldings and a staircase with the simple lines of the Arts and Crafts era.
The long living room has a large neo-Classical mantel and working wood-burning fireplace flanked by built-in bookcases. The floor is parquet and there are coved ceilings.
Also on this floor is a large eat-in kitchen with turquoise cabinetry that appears to date from the mid-20th century. The kitchen has two wall ovens, a cooktop, dishwasher and tile floor.
Carpeted stairs lead to the upper levels, with three bedrooms on the second floor – including the master and its en suite bath – and two more bedrooms on the top. Both have built-in cabinets.
A two-car garage — with space for four more cars in its private driveway — isn’t pictured, but like the house dates from the early 20th century and has original wood and glass doors, according to the designation report.
The listing specifies the home “needs TLC” and, based on the photos, it appears to be in estate condition.
Fiske Terrace is a Flatbush micronabe covering about six blocks.
The home is 4.5 blocks from the Q train at the Avenue H station and slightly farther from the B and Q express trains at the Newkirk Plaza stop. Brooklyn College is less than two blocks away.
