About this Property
PRICE IMPROVEMENTKnown as the Queen of Brooklyn Heights" 24 Middagh is the oldest home in the Heights Historic District and has been loved and lived in by the same family for half a century. Some would argue that this is one of the best examples of New York's wood-framed houses which interestingly were outlawed in Brooklyn Heights in the year 1852. The Brooklyn Historical Society praised the home as "one of the best reminders of the early days of Brooklyn Heights". This storied frame home can be dated to the early 19th century (some archivists surmise that it dates to 1790) with its Federal-style clapboard structure and charm still remaining intact today. The main house with both grace and charm stands 4 stories, has 3 exposures and includes five-bedrooms, 2.5 baths, a double parlor with 2 fireplaces, an eat-in kitchen and a formal dining room. The enchanting, leafy walled courtyard beyond the main residence extends to an income producing 2 story, two-bedroom carriage house. Nestled on a tree lined street corner in the fabled northern Heights, nearby the promenade with its views of the Manhattan skyline - this unique property represents a rare chance to own an expansive historic single-family home and a separate two-bedroom carriage house. Remarkable details include the exquisite Federal doorway with its collonettes, the quarter-round attic windows and top floor dormer windows, 5 gorgeous fireplaces with wooden mantels, ornate moldings and the spectacular wide-plank pine wooden flooring throughout. This property will be shown by appointment only."
