Residence at Prince and Broad – Restoration and Addition

The residence at Prince and Broad Street in Georgetown, SC dates back to the 1830s. Because of its diverse history as a single-family home, a parochial school, and a multi-family housing unit, the building has weathered several historically insensitive additions. Catalyst Architects, LLC, restored the historic character of the house while seamlessly updating it for modern, single-family living. The project required the demolition of poorly-designed additions. A new foundation was constructed to correct settling and prevent future damage. Wall cavities were insulated from the inside to protect the historic skin of the building. All bathroom additions were located in areas of new construction to protect the original house.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

In fact, a double porch is even better, providing more places to capture a breeze on a stifling hot Southern summer day.
Beth Woodson and Kristy Harvey added this to Double Front Porches Stack Up Comfort
The column is a crucial feature in the front porch, both structurally and aesthetically. Traditionally, the front porch column is large, cylindrical and features an ornate capital.
