THE RHETT HOUSE C.1882 Founder of the Preservation Society describes 205 Sumter with ''sweeping oaks, many azaleas and shrubs lining a circular drive'' giving ''the tall white house the special Summerville look and feel; a combination of hospitality and privacy, of country space in city living.'' On Summerville's most beautiful street 205 Sumter stands 3 blocks from the town square with restaurants, parks, tennis courts, walking trails, library, gym, shops, arts center, salons, theatre, neighborhood wine shop and more. This is a true walk-everywhere location as it was when built by Dr. Benjamin Rhett and his wife Julia Parker Rhett. (History in Documents) Of the Victorian era the house is more in the style of earlier Charleston singles with double piazzas, and a formal courtyard garden
