Not open to the public

The Robert Brewton House was built in 1730 and is the oldest dated single house in Charleston. The house stands sideways on the lot. It is three-stories high and the narrow side is to the street with the entrance at the side. The house is one room wide across the street front and one room to either side of the hall on all three floors.

The Robert Brewton House remains much as it was over 250 years ago and has been beautifully restored as much as possible to its 18th century design. Original heart pine floors and cypress wainscoting are preserved intact and the exterior quoins are believed to be the first purely decorative stucco quoins done in North America.

Today this classic house is a private residence.
