From the stately elegance of the Georgian era to the exuberant eclecticism of the twenty-first century, the houses of Charleston, South Carolina are defined by great architecture and elegant design.

'Period Charleston' explores six great houses that illustrate the traditional styles associated with the city, from Georgian to late Victorian. 'Eclectic Charleston' features six houses that demonstrate the eclectic approach to design that grew out of the post-Civil War era and continues to flourish today. Finally, 'Quintessential Charleston' defines the values that infuse Charleston style, from hospitality to romance.
