A Rare Opportunity To Step Into History

About this Property
Not simply a stunning evocation of an earlier era, 24 Middagh Street is full of charm and possibility. It includes a five-bedroom main house and a two-bedroom carriage house, separated by a lovely, leafy courtyard. More than history, a family compound in Brooklyn Heights The oldest house in Brooklyn Heights, 24 Middagh Street, known as the “Boisselet house,” can be dated to the early 19th century; some archivists surmise that it dates to 1790 and moved from near the Fulton Ferry Landing. Its Federal-style clapboard structure and charm remain intact, and its doorway alone, with elegant top- and sidelights and period bootscrapers are notable examples of the form. But 24 Middagh offers more than a compelling story. The property represents a rare chance to own an expansive single-family home with outdoor space and a lovely carriage house, fully finished as a separate two-bedroom residence. In the four-floor main house, light from three sides floods the living room, a country kitchen and spacious dining room, all with magnificent wide-plank floors. The upper floors contain five bedrooms, some with characteristic dormer windows. There are two full and two half baths in the main house. The carriage house features a spacious living and dining area with wood-burning fireplace, and two bedrooms and a full bath upstairs. There is one full and one half bath in the carriage house. This remarkable property represents a significant opportunity at $7,000,000.
