Columns by the Sea is the third of Dick Jenrette’s books chronicling his love of old houses, following the widely read memoirs, Adventures With Old Houses and More Adventures With Old Houses. In his new book, Mr. Jenrette focuses in greater detail on one of these houses – Roper House, an outstanding example of early 19th-century Greek Revival architecture, circa 1838, on the Battery in Charleston. In Columns by the Sea Dick Jenrette gives his highly personal account of how he discovered Roper House by accident while strolling on the Battery one moonlit night in 1968 and how his dream of owning this house with its colossal colonnade soon became a reality.
