One of the oldest townhomes in Brooklyn, located at 59 Middagh Street, is coming to market for $11.5 million after an extensive renovation. Developers Jennifer Robertson and Brenda Walker, founders of 522 Commercial Real Estate, spearheaded the project. Together they both boast over 40 years of expertise in all aspects of commercial real estate and capital markets.
Located a five minute subway ride from Wall Street, the 29-foot wide, 6,300-square-foot, fully renovated and modernized townhouse offers six bedrooms, five full bathrooms and three powder rooms, as well as breathtaking views of the Manhattan skyline from one of the most historic neighborhoods in the United States, Brooklyn Heights.
The property is within walking distance of the beloved local Promenade, Cadman Plaza Park, Brooklyn Bridge Park and Walt Whitman Park – providing an abundance of green space for a new homeowner. 59 Middagh Street underwent a meticulous gut renovation and expansion by Alan Berman, AIA, in conjunction with Dutchman Contracting, on behalf of 522 Commercial Real Estate. The parlor floor of the house has been designed as fluid space without walls, with the living room in the front, dining room in the middle, and the kitchen at the back of the house. The kitchen opens up to a deck with stairs that lead down to a large 1,035-square-foot private garden.
According to Clay Lancaster, a 20th century authority on American architecture, 59 Middagh St. was originally a farmhouse built in 1832 for William Rog, a professor of Hebrew. The property was also owned by two famous New York dynasties in the 19th century: the influential Middaghs – the pre-revolutionary clan who gave the street its name, and the Hicks – Long Island royalty whose roots in New York go back to the 1600s.
A fully equipped gym and sauna, along with functioning bar area, occupy the basement floor. The second floor features the master bedroom suite, which spans the width of the house, a large dressing room, a master bathroom with dual vanities, and a separate bathroom. The third floor offers three bedrooms, each featuring built-in closets and bathrooms, as well as a large laundry room. Crowning the house on the fourth floor is an impressively designed sunroom with terraces at either end, and a wet bar for entertaining. An elevator runs throughout the property, enabling easy access to all floors.
Ravi Kantha and Matthew Lesser, of the luxury real estate and townhouse specialist Leslie J. Garfield, are representing the palatial, historic property.
