Liggett Residence

  • This project is a specimen of Southern Greek revival architecture, such as the Walker Guest House and Davidson Residence.

  • Like the Harkavy Residence, it distinctly privatizes the internal life of the occupants by positioning the main living space towards the back of the house.

  • The main internal space circles around the enclosed two-story central courtyard which is completely air-conditioned.

  • It was featured in Architectural Record Houses of 1962.

  • It was sold in 1988 to A. Bronson and Stella Thayer.
