Historic Homes in Black Rock - Clarkson House

By
Real Estate Agent with William Raveis Real Estate RES.0772823

36 LivingstonCLARKSON HOUSE The  house was built by John Clarkson, Sr., an Englishman. The house was moved from its original location, Fairfield Avenue, corner of Gilman Street, to make way for the Beverly Theatre Building. It is now located on 36 Livingston Street.

I listed and sold this 2,078 SF Colonial with 4 bedrooms, 1.5 baths in 2005 for $341,550 "as is" in need of restoration.  A couple who love historic homes purchased it and did meticulous research to restore it to it's full historic period beauty while adding modern conveniences. 

I love looking up the history of homes and understanding what makes each one special.  The sellers grew up in this home and were glad that the buyers appreciated it and restored it.

That's a very cool story. It's always interesting to see what people do with historic homes, and knowing the history is fascinating.

I love hearing that families cared about where they lived enough to pass on the stories and to sell to someone who cares...

I love old homes!
