Property Details

This 2-story, 3-bay brick Greek revival house with a high foundation was built in 1842 by brick maker Benjamin Ford after making a deal with architect John McMurtry to furnish 146,866 brick at $3.50 in J. M. Pindell's house for this lot and the lot next door both originally given to John Todd for his Revolutionary war service in 1778. Ben Ford had built & lived at 606 W Short Street since 1835 and built or provided the bricks for many of the houses on the street. When Ben died in 1843 he left this house to his son C. W. Ford. Much loved by various owners over the last 178 years this house has the best of mechanical advances! Stunning contemporary features combined with the patina of the ages, old growth wood floors, handcrafted woodwork and trim seldom available today & with off street parking! Private treed garden, brick patios, walks to restaurants, galleries, shopping, parks and fitness all steps from the front door! H-1 protected. Exterior changes require BOAR approval.
