A Private Residence


The builder of this outstanding handsome "single" house was a native of Scotland, an eminent merchant of Charleston, and a provincial lay judge who helped to open the Revolution by resisting the Stamp Act.
His residence situated on Lots 87 and 88 of the Grand Model of 1672 is remarkable for its fine proportions and beautiful decorations; also because in its long history it has belonged to only two family connections besides his. The current owner's family has owned the house for almost 100 years.
 
Erected 1966 by The Preservation Society of Charleston.
