Description

A unique opportunity to purchase a piece of storied history. The Kerrison House, later known as Villa De La Fontaine, was built circa 1840 and restored in the 1970s. New England architect Russell Warren, a relative of Nathaniel Russel, designed the home and rear bathhouse. The grand residence sits back from the street and welcomes you with a semicircular driveway and front facing portico supported by columns with Temple of the Winds capitals. A descendant of the original merchant-owner, Miss Marguerite Kerrison left the estate to the Episcopal Church of South Carolina who maintained the home as the diocesan office until 1971. Sold in a private bid to respected designers Fontaine & Hancock, the property once again became a private residence.
