BARTRAM HOUSE - 427 Brewster Street - $475,000
Thomas Bartram, the builder of the house at the corner of Bartram avenue and Brewster street . He followed the West India trade, and he died of yellow fever in the West Indies, in 1803.
Thomas Bartram was married to Sarah Burr in 1797. He kept a careful record of his business transactions commences in 1801, the year he set up his house at Black Rock, and continued through 1835, three years before his death. Three volumeshave been preserved, covering the years between 1801 and 1819, and the period from 1830 to 1835. Two and perhaps three volumes, from the period 1819-1830, are missing, but the surviving volumes provide historic details.
This is one of my listings and is still currently on the market. It is now a two-family home, but could easily be converted back to the grand one-family 12 room home that it once was. It has 5 bedroom, 4.5 baths, 4,139 SF and 7 fireplaces. More photos and details at www.blackrockhomesforsale.com
