One of New York City’s oldest homes for sale is back on the market, albeit with a significant price cut. When we last wrote about this charming property, located at 24 Middagh Street, in Brooklyn Heights, it was asking $6.65 million, now it’s back on the market for $4.995 million.

When we last wrote about the property, it was the first time the home had come on the market in 58 years—it’s been owned by the same family since 1958. This time around, the property has also traded brokers, going from Kevin Carberry Real Estate to Corcoran.

The house was reportedly built in 1829, though some estimates date it back all the way to 1790, according to the broker on the property.

Described by the AIA Guide to New York City as the “the queen of Brooklyn Heights houses,” the frame house still retains much of its 19th century charm, according to the broker on the home. The property is comprised of two structures, a four-story main house with five bedrooms and two-and-a-half bathrooms, and the two-story carriage house with two bedrooms.

Some of the standout features of the overall property include five fireplaces with wooden mantels, the pine wooden flooring, the quarter round attic windows, and the top floor dormer windows. Do you think this price cut will help it sell?
