According to the Clinton Hill Historic District Designation Report, the 2-story building was 'erected as a carriage house and coachman's residence for Amos M. Kidder' and designed in 1879 by architect Amzi Hill in pure neo-Grec style, though it was heavily altered over the years. The beautiful brick facade was rebuilt using cleaned and salvaged brick from the rear of the house. The keystones, lintels, and detail blocks are rare, original bluestone. Some of the additional work that has already been completed includes metal decking laid on the first floor and the entire structure has been reinforced with steel beams.
This is a chance-of-a lifetime to create a special dream home or investment property in lovely Clinton Hill!
