PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

The Elizabeth Arden House is a truly exquisite property located in the historic district of downtown Summerville. It is privately situated on the area's most coveted street and walkable to the town square, restaurants, shops, and tennis courts. The home was originally built in 1897 by A. J. Baird for Mr. Samuel Lord, a Charleston attorney. World-renowned businesswoman, Elizabeth Arden, purchased the southern Victorian-style estate as a summer home and sold the property in 1954 while creating her cosmetic empire. It is said that Arden painted the front door a different color for each season, but it now remains red, the inspiration for the entrances to her salons. With Charleston-style double piazzas, this property boasts timeless vintage details and exudes welcoming, southern charm. The
