63 Mulberry Street – House & Carriage House

HISTORY

mulberryst63img2

In 1895, local architect Guy Kirkham designed a large Colonial Revival style house and Shingle style carriage house for Chester Bliss  at 63 Mulberry Street.

THREAT

Both buildings are in serious disrepair and is a good example of demolition by neglect. It’s also a complex shamble of ownership and code violations that the City continues to deal with.  The Law Department has brought legal action against the former and current owners. At the present, there are open code violations and police issue tickets. The City continues to pursue action in court.

REUSE

Large carriages houses can be an asset to a property, as there is an opportunity to create an accessory apartment that can provide revenue that helps with the upkeep of the main house.
