In 1849, the relevant lot was acquired by Charles Short and in the following year was sold to Sarah Platt (otherwise Short).

In 1946, it was acquired from the Porte estate by John H. Fife. It stayed in the Fife family until 1967, when it was purchased by the Henry and Lillian Life, who kept it for the next 16 years. Ilse J. Schneider bought it in 1991.

Architectural: This red brick with white trim, 1 ¾ storey house has been partially renovated. In its early years it had a screened balcony over the front door, whereas today there is an exterior front vestibule that extends to the second floor. Further, the front windows have been altered and replaced (modern casement type that project out about nine inches). It has aluminum soffits and fascia.
