Considered Notable to the city, the Thomas Hamlin House, circa 1828, is an Antebellum home built in the Greek Revival style. The one-and-half-story single house on a raised brick basement is, according to John Poston's The Buildings of Charleston, the first house built on Gadsden above Wentworth Street and is thought to have been a summer home for the Hamlin's. When it was built, it would have had unobstructed views of the Ashley River, which probably account for the Plantation-style architectural influences such as the grand front piazza and gable roof with 3 dormers. This home has been lovingly restored with an interior designed by Athalie Derse and the handsome garden by landscape architect Glen Gardner. The main entrance hall separates a formal living room and library on one side from a formal dining room and guest bedroom/second master with en-suite Waterworks bath on the other side. All 4 rooms boast beautiful wood-burning fireplaces. The sleek, high-end kitchen is located off the dining room and opens to the grand piazza. The second floor boasts the master bedroom with built-ins wrapped around a fireplace and Waterworks Bath with double sink, separate shower, and claw foot tub. A second guest bedroom with dormers completes the second floor. The raised brick basement on the ground floor has been elegantly converted into a one bedroom, one bath apartment with exposed brick fireplaces in the sitting room and bedroom, heart pine floors, and full Kitchen. Upgrades to the home include a Rinnai water heater, all new electric when owners purchased home, three heating and cooling zones added, all floors sanded and refinished, entire house painted inside and out, and hurricane bolts added to shutters. The third floor was gutted 3.5 years ago and this renovation included spray foaming the entire underside of the metal standing seam roof, built dressing room, and they doubled the size of the master bath, where they used all Waterworks products and added new plumbing lines. Appliances in Kitchen in Laundry are only 2 years old. On the ground floor, last year the entire floor was gutted, interior brick in all five rooms was re-pointed, all new kitchen and bathroom was added and sump pumps installed under each room. New alarm system just installed in home.
