This house is based on a Classical Revival home located on historic Murray Blvd. in Charleston. Positioned along the seawall running along the southern tip of the peninsula, the Charleston home has a sweeping view of the harbor and Fort Sumter. Houses of this style were very symmetrical with a simple rectilinear form and minimum detailing, such as the keystone lintels above the windows and doors. The large, two-story portico has a rooftop parapet and is supported by two sets of four columns. Exterior walls were typically made of brick, stucco or wood.
