A Charleston Landmark - Imagine, within the walls of the four-story mansion situated at the northeast corner of Tradd and Meeting Streets, a Pre-Revolutionary structure exists. William Ellis, a Charleston merchant, built that three-story structure in the mid eighteenth century. Bertram Kramer, a Charleston building contractor, who acquired the property in 1884, transformed the house in high Victorian taste. Imagine, a renovation by Mr. Kramer including the addition of a full fourth floor encased in a mansard roof with a conical peak. Enlarging every window, widening the front door, addition of a Moorish arch and iron balconies on the second floor as well as bay windows, dripstone cornices and a heavy bracketed house cornice. A roof garden added to the north wing.
