Circa 1796, alterations in 1849 to present. The Anthony Toomer House – Toomer, a builder and Revolutionary War veteran, bought the land in 1796. Thomas Purse added the two-story and masonry addition during the Greek Revival period. Many original-to-the-period details remain. Privately sitting far from the street, the lushly landscaped garden offers the perfect setting among the finest mansions on desirable ''Lower Legare.'' Outdoor space abounds from the front and the side garden to the south. The 1840's addition transformed the formal space, with plenty of natural light throughout. Recent updates allow for turnkey living. Main house, second floor features three bedrooms with en suite baths. The charming rear guest (fourth bedroom/bath) suite overlooks the private pool.
