The neighbors of this pretty little house on Gibbes Street used to have roosters roaming their garden. They would serve as an early morning alarm for the whole neighborhood.
This beautiful house, on Murray Boulevard, is nicely dressed for the holidays. With a wonderful view of the Low Battery and the Ashley River, whether looking at or from the house.
The house that this gorgeous Charleston doorway is in dates to Colonial times, but the door itself is a more recent addition. Located on Rainbow Row, as with most buildings on this stretch of East Bay Street, the first floor was originally used commercially (in this case as a counting house and then as a grain and feed store). In 1941, when Susan Pringle Frost — the founder of the modern day preservation movement in Charleston — restored the building she replaced the existing storefront with this door.
Built in 1850, this architecturally diverse antebellum house on Franklin Street was home to French consul in the 1870’s and 1880’s.
