Brooklyn Heights is filled with charming old homes—it is America's First Suburb, after all—but one of the most unique and treasured of them all is the clapboard house at 24 Middagh Street. The 19th century abode—which has been in the same family since the 1950s—sits on the corner of Willow Street, and just a block from the best view of the Manhattan Skyline. The house is more like a compound, featuring the main house and a carriage house (the two are joined by a private courtyard), and it's now on the market for $6,650,000 (down from $7 million, which it listed for when it went on the market late last year). The rare opportunity to own the oldest house in Brooklyn Heights means that anyone can get a look inside, finally.

The sellers have set up a website for the sale, featuring photos of the interior of the home, and a little bit of its history:

The oldest house in Brooklyn Heights, 24 Middagh Street, known as the "Boisselet house," can be dated to the early 19th century; some archivists surmise that it dates to 1790 and moved from near the Fulton Ferry Landing. Its Federal-style clapboard structure and charm remain intact, and its doorway alone, with elegant top- and sidelights and period bootscrapers are notable examples of the form.

The main house spans four floors and features a kitchen, dining room, and five bedrooms, while the carriage house has a living and dining area, two bedrooms, and a wood burning fire place. Seems like a good place to hygge out.

According to 6sqft, the current owners are Celeste Weisman and her brother Jared, who grew up in the house but have been renting it out. Their parents bought the home in 1958.
