Old Sorrel-Weed House


Savannah, Georgia (GA), US
"The Sorrel-Weed House is an exceptional example of the Greek revival style. It was was designed and built by renowned Irish architect Charles B. Cluskey in 1841 for Frances Sorrel, a commission merchant from the West Indies. Regarded as one of Savannah’s most beautiful mansions, the home features a parapet with elliptical arches, a sweeping double entrance and Doric columns on the portico, and balconies on the first story front windows. An oval shaped library with curved wooden doors is of particular interest.
