From the Zillow listing:


The Circa 1915 Cox-Rufty Rental house is a late one story victorian with a full width from porch and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Home retains 2 original fireplaces and mantles and all its original beadboard walls, woodwork and wood floors. Located in the Brooklyn South Square Historic district and is a mere 4 blocks from the center of the Downtown. This home is in need of some TLC but well worth the time and energy. The home is due for a new roof, interior and exterior painting and some cosmetic work. The front room with the book cases can serve as a third bedroom with the addition of a door or closing off an old closet wall that was removed. This could easily be a stunning home once again. Large fenced back yard and a shared driveway. Sold as is with no repairs being made, therefore not FHA eligible. This home is however eligible for both Federal and State historic tax credits, and yearly exterior grants through Salisburys Historic Preservation Commission.
