What’s more, this home in the back of residential Brooklyn looks horribly stuck in the 1950s.

A corner lot on a tiny triangular street just a block from the Marine Park neighborhood’s eponymous green space looks like the setting of a mid-century comedy series. From floral wallpaper to carpeted stairs, pale green kitchen curtains and a stone-floored foyer, this four-bedroom apartment couldn’t look more elegant. It is listed with Serhant’s Trisha Lee for $1.22 million and is “entering the market for the first time.” list.

The house has been owned by the same family for its entire existence, and its 82-year-old owner grew up in it, Lee told The Post.

The family has owned the terraced house since 1940, and the salesman’s father, a 1933 graduate of Columbia Medical School, ran his medical practice at a lower level for most of his career.

The property is now configured as a duplex and the lower level is still dedicated to medical practice.

“Future owners have the option to keep the office for commercial use, convert it into an income-generating rental unit, or combine it with a duplex to turn the entire property into a large single-family home,” the listing notes.

“[He] treated everyone who showed up on his doorstep during the polio outbreak,” Lee said.

Due to its unique location in a small, non-square block within a network of streets, the property technically has three addresses: 3001 Ave. S, 1877-1893 Batchelder St. and 1930 Gerritsen Ave. Its corner lot also allows it to be an extra 43 feet long and almost 26 feet deep than most homes in the area, Lee says.

Original details, including crown mouldings, arched doorways, and custom built-in elements, remain throughout. Red brick front, wood-burning fireplace in the living room and a two-car garage under the living room.
