Thursday is "This Old House Day"



Number 139-141 Clay Street is one of three similarly designed double residences in a row on Clay Street. This house is one of the early double residences built in the 1860s in a traditional style, with steep Gothic Revival gables dominating the facade. A simple hip roof balustraded porch, supported by square posts, unites the two entrances. The house is set on a typical Quincy granite foundation and the red color brings out the wonderful architectural details.

Great. What a dream. It looks like a wonderful place to live and to spend one's old days.

There's a house with very similar lines up the hill from here but I believe it is a single residence. So interesting.
