One of seven brick Italianate residences built in 1870 by W. Tiffts. The three buildings on the Irving Street end were converted for commercial use. Those at 149-155 recall the early streetscape. They were originally distinguishable only by the variance in pitch of their gable roofs, and the differences in application of their ornately scrolled and pendanted brackets. The buildings were distinguished in the early twentieth century by the addition of individual Georgian entryways and window treatments.
