This early-19th century Federal style house, the Elizabeth Stuyvesant and Nicholas Fish residence, is a magnificent example of the architectural traditions of fine urban dwellings in the in the early period of the Union. It is the oldest house in the area with a fully intact facade. Significant in size, the house is three bays wide and three and a half stories tall with a solidly built brownstone basement and a shallow doorway. The facade wall is brick laid in the characteristic Flemish bond pattern, the entry door is of a grand width with a wood and glass surround, and the double hung windows are topped with splayed stone lintels. A simple white cornice underlies the sloped roof with twin arched dormer windows, exemplary of the Federal style. Furthermore, the house showcases a low brownstone stoop, brownstone sills and lintels, sidelights set off by slender columns, a semi-elliptical fanlight, and six-over-six windows.
