Daily Dream Home: Meeting Street

Today’s home is a Charleston, South Carolina landmark on Meeting Street. The original home  was built in the 1740s and still exists within walls of the four-story mansion situated at the northeast corner of Tradd and Meeting Streets.

William Ellis, a Charleston merchant, built the three-story structure in the mid eighteenth century. Bertram Kramer, a Charleston building contractor, who acquired the property in 1884, transformed the house in high Victorian taste.

Imagine, a renovation by Mr. Kramer including the addition of a full fourth floor encased in a mansard roof with a conical peak. The renovation enlarged every window, widening the front door, adding a Moorish arch and iron balconies on the second floor as well as bay windows, dripstone cornices and a heavy bracketed house cornice.

A roof garden was added to the north wing creating beautiful views of the  surrounding rooftops and steeples.
