Robert William Roper House was built around 1838. The house is an example of early 19th Century Greek Revival architecture, built on a grandiose scale. The house has massive two-story- high Ionic columns raise above the first floor. The ceiling heights are 18 feet with tall windows extending to the floor.

It is said that Mr. Roper intended his showcase home to be the first residence seen by visitors approaching Charleston from the sea.

Today the house is a private residence.
