Rarely available, this significantly designed, four story, two family Clinton Hill home wasdesigned by Architect William B. Tubby. Tubby was considered a master of form and composition, the simplicity of his design considered genius and use of materials elegant. He also designed the Pratt Institute Library, Scheiren Mansion and Charles Pratt Mansion.
One in a row of five Tubby houses on an historic, leafy block, 135 Cambridge Place was built in 1894 in the English Queen Anne/Arts and Crafts style with Dutch style gables and Renaissance Revival brickwork. This house offers beautiful light and many original details. Streaming light enters from two skylights as well as bright, double lot, easterly exposure on the garden side, while afternoon westerly light dapples the front façade.
A cascading center stair allows each room to embrace the full15’ width of the house which is spacious at 45’ deep, on a 100’ lot. Stripped of any modern day mishaps, leaving only original design in place, the house includes 6 fireplaces, hand-crafted Oak parquet floors with inlaid Mahogany detail, built in corner cabinets, and twin leaded and beveled glass doors to a balcony overlooking the garden. Current condition showcases its original beauty (with no kitchens or baths). Bring your contractor as this is a unique opportunity to capture history while creating your own piece of perfection.
Additional features of this building include: All rooms are full width, Cascading center stair, One of 5 in a row with Dutch-sytle gabled facades, Renaissance Revival brickwork, English Queen Anne/Arts and Crafts built 1864, Rear Parlor with built in cabiets, Bright, easterly facing garden, Original interior detail, Twin leaded and beveled glass doors to balcony, and Handcrafted oak and mahogany parquet.
