Town House

Built in 1834

57 Middagh perfectly captures the many storied past of Brooklyn Heights while ushering you into the present with its contemporary comforts.


Built for a Dutch merchant around 1834, this meticulously renovated townhouse has been thoroughly updated while carefully preserving the artistry of the past. 57 Middagh is a 4 story townhouse that is almost 22' wide, has 7 bedrooms and 6 full + 2 half baths and is configured as a triplex over a duplex (incl the cellar).

Up the restored wooden stoop, through the Dutch lacquered doors, past the moody entry foyer, you arrive in the upper triplex. With full, flowing sight lines from the quiet street to the leafy garden, you are greeted with exceptionally high parlor ceilings that have highly ornate, original tin ceilings. The wood burning fireplace in the living room is echoed by the decorative mantel in the large dining room. Easy moving pocket doors can give privacy between these two. An open archway leads to the brand new chef's kitchen. A custom shiplap hood, honed marble island and cabinetry build out the space, while the Thermador and Miele appliances do the heavy lifting. The triple, oversized windows give full views of the back deck and the well planted garden. Ample storage and a powder room round out this floor.

Up the stairs to the second floor is the primary suite with en suite bath. The beautiful tile selection creates the perfect environment to enjoy the deep, egg shaped soaking tub and then pass through the dressing room, a second en suite bath, to arrive at the front bedroom/ family room where you can enjoy the wood burning fireplace. An open study with reading nook sits off the front room and basks in dreamy, southern light. Down the hall is a spacious laundry room.

If you hadn't noticed by now, each window offers its own special view to unique vantage points in the northern end of Brooklyn Heights, with a fantastic blend of almost 200 years of architectural styles and materials. Each window is its own vacation.

The top floor yields more charm, original detail and light. Tin ceilings and oversized windows draw your eyes up and out from the three bedrooms and two full baths. Steps from the back bedroom give access to a full width terrace with Brooklyn Bridge and Dumbo views. An internal home office anchors this floor.

Entrance to the duplex is through the front garden and under the stoop. The modern kitchen with island blends smoothly with the flowing layout of the open plan front room
. Two full baths, laundry and two bedrooms face the back terrace with one of them giving access to outside.

The cellar consists of a large great room - currently used for exercise, a 1/2 bath, mechanicals and front room ripe for wine storage. This well considered duplex is perfect for high rental income, an amazing home office or otherwise.

Three zones of HVAC keep the house cool and two boilers keep the house warm. Radiant heat in the baths of the triplex keep you cozy.

57 Middagh St is close to Manhattan but quietly tucked away in the best-of-the-best Brooklyn Heights location. It's a short stroll to the Promenade, bistros, amenities and DUMBO. The A/C train stop is 1.5 blocks away making for quick travel to Manhattan or Fort Greene for work or play. There is a pathway and footbridge to Brooklyn Bridge Park and the new deep-water marina at the end of Middagh Street.
