105 Cambridge Place was built in 1873 by Thomas Lambert, who was a partner in the construction and development firm Lambert & Mason. The new buyers will enjoy the original details plus have the opportunity of having a house that is "move-in ready"!

Clinton Hill encapsulates the history of New York. Walt Whitman, a 28-year resident of Brooklyn, had lived for less than a year in the area in 1855, where he completed his masterpiece "Leaves of Grass".

The Clinton Hill Historic District was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985. The district includes the mansions of Clinton Avenue, built in the 1870s and 1880s. The rest of the historic district is noted for its prominent Italianate and Beaux-Arts rowhouses. The Clinton Hill South Historic District was listed in 1986.

Close to Pratt University, BAM, Brooklyn Flea and Fort Greene Park as well as a supermarket, organic grocery store and post office, it is just blocks away from established shops, bars, cafes and great restaurants in Clinton Hill and Fort Greene.

This home will be delivered vacant.
