This Adam Style house was built circa 1800 by Thomas Bennett, Jr., an intendent of Charleston (1812) and governor of SC (1820). The frame structure rests on a raised basement with a gable roof highlighted on both the north and south elevations by a central pediment lunette and flanked by paired gabled dormers. The 5-bay wide main facade has a central door framed by a transom and sidelights with decorative tracery. Windows with louvered shutters are nine over night lights. The 2-tired piazza with Tuscan columns and turned balusters spans the south facade and a portion of the west facade. A rear addition was added in the late 19th century.
*The interior of 113 Ashley Ave is notable for its original woodwork and elegant central staircase.
