24 Middagh St is one of Brooklyn Heights Historic Districts' oldest homes built between 1790 - 1829, in the Federal style. Architect William F. Schorn of Manhattan added a second and separate dwelling at the rear of the property in 1938, previously a carriage house. The convenient gate to Willow St was also added at this time.

Uniquely situated in the North Heights on the leafy desirable corner of Middagh and Willow Streets, just a stone's throw from the lovely Brooklyn Heights Promenade, the award-winning Brooklyn Bridge Park, and a short commute to Downtown Manhattan, the main house and carriage house sit on one lot joined by a private and quaint courtyard.

The Federal Style main house, remodeled by Architect Sidney Daub in 1936 for its newly-wed buyers added a picket fence, enlarged the attic windows on the rear and added shutters to all the facades. These changes remain today. The main house stands 4 stories tall and includes five bedrooms, a double parlor with twin wood-burning fireplaces, a lower eat-in kitchen and a formal dining room with an amazing 3 exposures for natural light and air.

A cozy and very private walled garden with gate access to Willow St is convenient for gardeners and for storing all manner of wheeled modes of transportation such as bikes and scooters. It's also a lovely place to entertain friends under a tranquil leafy canopy.

The rear carriage house is a 2-story guest house or extended family home with 2 bedrooms, one and a half baths, a wood-burning fireplace and additional kitchen.

Original details include Federal-style doorways with colonnettes, quarter-round attic windows, top floor dormer windows, 5 fireplaces with original wooden mantels, ornate moldings and stunning wide-pine plank solid wooden flooring throughout.

This is a rare opportunity to own your own private piece of history in Brooklyn Heights with a rare and convenient corner location, and two buildings.

Showings by appointment only - no open houses will be posted.
