    What a gorgeous home!!

  2. Urban Explorer says:

    1837 seems a bit far back (and oddly specific) for this property, based on style of the house. “Year built” information from the City Assessor’s office is notoriously inaccurate for properties built before 1920, and mostly reflect the best guess of an assessor, few of whom are architectural historians or have the time to do detailed research.

    It’s possible this house was built in 1837 and subsequently renovated, but based on the form and style, I would say it was built sometime between 1875 and 1900.

    All that being said, it does not diminish the fact that this is a great house, on a great street, in a great neighborhood!

    FWIW, it does not appear to be on the 1888 plat map when Field St was, I believe, still called Paddy Lane. Hope this link works: http://photo.libraryweb.org/carlweb/jsp/FullRecord?databaseID=716&record=31&controlNumber=8668.

    It is also not there on the 1888 plat map, but has been subdivided (and Field St named). http://photo.libraryweb.org/carlweb/jsp/FullRecord?databaseID=716&record=19&controlNumber=15698

    It is there on the 1900 plat map (hope THIS link works too http://photo.libraryweb.org/carlweb/jsp/FullRecord?databaseID=716&record=22&controlNumber=8698. That at least narrows things down to the house being built between 1888 and 1900.

    If the links don’t work, Google Rochester Plat Maps and go to the Monroe County Image Library and this area is on plate 36 of the 1875 Plat, plate 24 in 1888, and plate 28 in 1900.
