We did this tour as part of the heritage passport. The tour guide was great. She had fantastic knowledge of the home and the antiques within it. Great mix of history and beauty in this home.

This was our favorite historic home that we visited in Charleston. The docent tour guide was exceptional. The architecture was a standout as were the furnishings and overall grounds. Definitely should be a number one visit when one is prioritizing historic houses to see.
