Charleston in Charleston County, South Carolina — The American South (South Atlantic)
Home of Robert Limehouse
Originally this area was Limehouse farmland. The small scale and sturdy appearance denote that it is older than its neighbors. The bold colonade of piazza columns give the house dignity and permanence.
The exceptionally fine brickwork is laid in Flemish bond. The Egyptian design reflects interest in Napoleonís Egyptian campaign.
