187-year-old Brooklyn Heights townhouse gets price cut, asks $10M

New, 11 comments

The five-story property was recently gut renovated

A gut renovated, Federal-style townhouse in Brooklyn Height’s historic district—one of Brooklyn’s oldest homes—has just listed for $10 million. Back in September, the property was asking $11.5 million.

The 6,300-square-foot townhouse was built in 1832 for William Rog, a New York University professor. Alan Berman (Archetype LLC), EMTG Consulting Engineers, and Dutchman Contracting were in charge of its recent gut renovation.

Even though it was fully changed on the inside, as we previously reported, the house’s facade resembles other 19th-century properties in the area with details like a front porch that evokes its original entryway.

The five-story prewar home has six bedrooms, a private guest suite, eight bathrooms, an elevator, and a large garden described in the brokerbabble as a “peaceful oasis.” Other features include a Chesneys-designed limestone gas fireplace, a gym, sauna, and a vanishing vanity TV in its master bathroom.

The property is located at 59 Middagh Street, between Henry and Hicks streets, down the block from an Alice’s Tea Cup and a couple of minutes away from Cadman Plaza Park and the High Street A, C train station. Taxes will be $2,443/month.

Rafael Malka and David Hubschman of Douglas Elliman have the listing.
