This new listing is where history and grandeur meet. Marked as the third oldest home in the Brooklyn Heights area, the five-story townhouse exudes the essence and charm of the early 1800s while also proclaiming modern beauty due to recent renovations.
Located at 59 Middagh Street, luxury lives within the 6,300 square feet of sun-soaked and pristine spaces. The open floor plan allows plenty of freedom for inhabitants to nurture their own atmosphere. Filled with six bedrooms, eight bathrooms and an enviable, top-of-the-line open chef’s kitchen, this home is inherently designed to please.
The grand entry invites guests into a triple parlor consisting of the kitchen, living room and dining room. The living room holds a central limestone gas fireplace for the chilliest of winter nights, designed by Chesneys. A grand staircase winds through the home, while an elevator also services each level.
Below the front stoop, a second entrance leads to another level of the same high class. This floor features a private guest suite including a bedroom, bathroom, wet bar and laundry appliances. Retractable glass doors lead to the greenest highlight of the listing.
On the second floor lies a master bedroom suite, complete with a sitting area and a private terrace looking into the property’s 1,000+ square foot garden. The garden is perfect for outdoor entertainment for a party of any size. Along with a green oasis, relaxation continues at the private sauna, perhaps after a workout at the gym located at the back of the house. The master bathroom boasts marble and custom finishes, a floating tub, enclosed glass shower and a vanishing vanity television.
The townhouse’s third level holds three spacious bedrooms, a laundry room, two full bathrooms and ample storage space. Upward on the fourth floor, a pitched ceiling reaches for Brooklyn’s famed skyline, offering atelier skylights to bathe the interior in the sun’s warmth.
Nestled in a convenient location within minutes of New York’s hot spots, 59 Middagh claims a pleasant and desirable presence, designed by Alan Berman of Archetype LLC, engineered by EMTG Consulting Engineers, and constructed by Dutchman Contracting.
