Inscription.
Handsome Georgian style house built by a prosperous Huguenot merchant. An outstanding example of an early Charleston single house well adapted to the narrow lot purchased in 1752. In 1816 an adjacent house was demolished to provide space for the walled garden and elegant Regency piazzas. Interior panelled with wide cypress boards carved in a bold but restrained design. Restored in 1926 by W. Lucas Simons, Esq.
