Description

Built by Scottish merchant Charles Edmondston, the three-story mansion is now a museum that showcases the way the wealthy landed gentry lived in the early 19th Century. Bought and refurbished by Charles Alston in 1838, the guided tours on offer take you through beautifully furnished rooms with period silver, antiques, books and paintings. A stroll on the second floor piazza offers great views of Charleston Harbor. During the Christmas season the house is decorated for the holidays as it would have been in 1860. The mansion's former carriage house has been renovated into a lovely bed and breakfast. The current owner of the house resides on the third floor.
