Signficant Architectural Features:
Built by a member of the Huguenot family of Cordes, the house incorporated both Adam and Greek Revival influence. It's general outline is clearly of the 1830's and 40's with the lines of its gable slate roof and cornice of wooden triglyphs already showing the new strength of the Greek Revival. The brick and stucco piers on the basement level supporting the piazza are solid and squat. The fluted Doric columns and pilasters of the two top tiers of the piazzas have none of the slender delicacy of the Adam style. The house is of beaded weatherboarding and a Palladian stair window is on the east side of the house.
