One of the oldest townhouses in Brooklyn is back on the market after an extensive renovation.

Located just a five-minute subway ride from Wall Street, 6,300-square-foot, fully modernised townhouse offers six bedrooms, five full bathrooms and three powder rooms, as well as boasting breath-taking views of the Manhattan skyline from one of the most historic neighborhoods in the United States, Brooklyn Heights.

Brooklyn Heights is dominated by more than 900 pre-Civil War townhouses and possessing few high-rise buildings, it has long been a centre of the arts and over the years famous residents have included Marylin Monroe, Matt Damon, Arthur Miller and Truman Capote amongst many others.

59 Middagh Street is one of the oldest homes in the neighbourhood, and has now has undergone a meticulous and thoughtful gut renovation and expansion by Alan Berman, AIA in conjunction with Ductchman Contracting on behalf of 522 Commercial Real Estate, LLC.

The parlor floor of the house has been designed as fluid space without walls, allowing for the living room at the front of the house, a 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.

A fully equipped gym and sauna, along with functioning bar area, occupy the basement floor, which also includes a study and private bedroom suite. The open-plan nature of the home allows for the space to have multiple uses, either as a playroom, dining room or further lounge space. Also on the basement floor are two bathrooms and a laundry room.

The second floor features the master bedroom suite, which consists of an expansive bedroom spanning the width of the house, a large dressing room, a master bathroom with dual vanities, and a separate bathroom. On the same floor, there is a second guest bedroom with bathroom.  In addition, the third floor offers three graciously sized 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 that span the width of the house. There is also a wet bar for entertaining, powder room, closet, sink area, and a customized linen closet. An elevator runs throughout the property, enabling easy access to all floors.

“59 Middagh Street has been developed into a beautiful luxury townhome with a width and space that make it truly one of a kind,” says Ravi Kantha, Senior Real Estate Adviser at Leslie J. Garfield. “Additionally, it’s an incredible opportunity to work on a project with such a rich and varied history. It’s exciting to see female developers playing an increasingly prominent role in New York real estate.”
