Charleston South Carolina Single Houses

This is a Charleston "Single House". It is the typical house in the historic section of Charleston. It is one room wide, with windows all around for circulation, and a porch and balcony on the sunny side of the house to give shade as well as for sitting out in the evenings. Most of the houses in the historic section of Charleston are of this type. This house is from the early 1700's, and most of the "single houses" are from the 1700's and 1800's.
