Note:

Mountain Lodge was among the earliest houses built for wealthy Charlestonians who created a summer retreat community at Flat Rock. It began as a hip roofed house with square plan; Stillwell’s 1936 addition doubled its size, with a large wing on one side, a sun room on the other, and a dramatic full-height portico.
