Considered Notable to the city, the Thomas Hamlin House, circa 1828, is an Antebellum home built in the Greek Revival style. The one-and-half-story single house on a raised brick basement is, according to John Poston's The Buildings of Charleston, the first house built on Gadsden above Wentworth Street and is thought to have been a summer home for the Hamlin's. When it was built, it would have had unobstructed views of the Ashley River, which probably account for the Plantation-style architectural influences such as the grand front piazza and gable roof with 3 dormers. This home has been lovingly restored with an interior designed by Athalie Derse and the handsome garden by landscape architect Glen Gardner.The main entrance hall separates a formal living room and library on one side from a formal dining room and guest bedroom/second master with en-suite bath on the other side. All 4 rooms boast beautiful wood-burning fireplaces. The sleek, high-end kitchen is located off the dining room and opens to the grand piazza. The second floor boasts the master bedroom with built-ins wrapped around a fireplace and Bath with double sink, separate shower, and claw foot tub. A second guest bedroom with dormers completes the second floor. The raised brick basement on the ground floor has been elegantly converted into a one bedroom, one bath apartment with exposed brick fireplaces in the sitting room and bedroom, heart pine floors, and full Kitchen.
