Thomas Elfe House


category : Famous Homes
This pre-Revolutionary War period Georgian-style single house was built by Thomas Elfe, one of Charleston's most prolific and acclaimed cabinetmakers. Open to the public on a limited basis, the quality of the woodwork is rare. China cabinets and closets are artfully worked into each chimney alcove. Finely cut cornice moldings encircle each room with beautiful simplicity. The private home also is a showplace for 18th- and 19th-century furnishings.
