Signficant Architectural Features:
Bordering on the Regency. Built by William G. Steele, the house is an interesting example of the Regency style adapted to a Charleston plan. The house is noted for its particular fine carving on both the interior and the exterior. It has an outstanding carved marble entrance doorway, with its gently shallow brackets supporting an entablature and pediment. The first floor rooms and the center hall have paneled dados, but with a variation in the design of each. The front parlor mantel shows a delicately carved pastoral scene and the woodwork on mantel and trim repeats a pattern of interlocked circles. The dining room mantel is in sunbursts and swags. The second story drawing room is unchanged in its lavishness of design since this room was installed more than 150 years ago.
