No. 30 Orange Street, a cherished North Heights landmark, has been the home of one family for 60 years. A 4-storied brick and brownstone row house with Italianate and Greek Revival detail, it is one of the five continuous brick facade houses in Brides' Row.

Circa 1840, it is 20 feet wide by 30 feet deep, on a lot 50 foot deep. The main floor has 12 foot ceilings, original crown moldings and tall windows front and back. A graceful arch between the front and rear parlors is embellished by decorative brackets and there is a working fireplace with a carved white marble mantle and surround.

The living spaces include a double parlor on the main floor, kitchen, dining room, and half bath on garden level, and a total of five bedrooms and two baths on the second and third floors. The cellar beneath the kitchen and dining level is paved in bluestone, as are the garden and front walk.

The south-facing garden is accessible from the rear parlor and from the kitchen. Among the specimen trees are a large-leafed curly maple and an overhanging flowering choke cherry. Neighboring gardens have additional flowering species to be enjoyed each spring.

Well-preserved architectural features and original details include cast iron railing and fence, four fireplaces, a deep cooking hearth and pressed tin ceiling and walls in the kitchen, crown moldings, cornices, staircase, doors, cabinetry, knobs and fastening hardware, and a skylight of etched glass.

From the front stoop, there are views across Willow Street to the Promenade, and Manhattan across the harbor, and in the opposite direction, across Hicks, the beautiful buildings and gardens of historic Plymouth Church. Historic references to the house include that it was, for a time, a pastoral residence for Henry Ward Beecher.

A complete restoration is required, including plaster work, plumbing, electrical, and mechanicals.
