Right on the border between Brooklyn and Queens, Ridgewood is one of those precious neighborhoods reminiscent of old New York.

The neighborhood that remains today was built at the turn of the 20th century, mostly for workers of the nearby breweries in Bushwick, according to the so-called “mayor of Ridgewood,” Paul Kerzner. It’s filled with low-rise buildings and brick rowhouses, surrounded by the bustling thoroughfares of Fresh Pond Road and Myrtle Avenue.

Now, a circa-1940 row home is on the market for $1.35 million. The two-story property has a ton of charming touches, including its restored original hardwood floors, wooden counters and hexagon tiles in its kitchen, crown and base moldings, and wood panels in its bedrooms.

It comes with three bedrooms, a large living room, a garden with a hot tub and space for a sitting and grill area, and a finished basement. The 1,899-square-foot home, listed by the owner, is located at 1877 Willoughby Avenue, between Woodward and Onderdonk avenues, a nine-minute walk to the L train at Jefferson Street.
