Brooklyn Heights’ oldest home gets price-chopped
Wood-frame house at 24 Middagh Street now asking $6.65M
New York /
The oldest home in Brooklyn Heights is looking to knock off some its dust.
The Federal-style wood-frame house at 24 Middagh Street is asking $6.65 million, down from the $7 million when it hit the market in September for the first time in nearly 60 years, according to 6sqft.com.
The home dates back to 1824, about 25 years before wood-framed homes were prohibited in Brooklyn Heights.
And although there are other homes on Middagh Street that date back to the 1820s, No. 24 is the only one that remains unaltered from its original condition, according to the American Institute of Architects, which refers to it as “the queen of Brooklyn Heights houses.”
Formerly known as the Eugene Boisselet house, the five-bedroom home features original details like wood floors, fireplaces and moldings. It comes with a separate carriage house that has been reconfigured as a two-bedroom guesthouse.
The home does need modern upgrades like electric and central air conditioning, according to listing broker Kevin Carberry.
The current owners, Celeste Weisman and her brother Jared, grew up in the home their parents bought in 1958 and have been renting out the property. They both live in San Francisco, and decided to sell after their mother died last year. [6sqft.com] – Rich Bockmann
