The Sullivan residence is an adaptation of Dean Hall, a plantation home located in Beaufort, South Carolina. The design of the home utilizes a full 12 foot wrap around porch on the main level supported by a foundation made of brick pointed arches with stairs leading to the front door and wide bisecting hallway running from the front to the back of the home. To the left of the hallway on the Main Level is the Library, Office, Bathroom, and Family Room while on the right side of the hallway is the Dining Room, Stairs, Kitchen and Breakfast area. There are large fireplaces in the Family Room and the Breakfast area. The Upper Level contains two secondary bedrooms connected with a Jack and Jill bathroom all on the left side of the dividing hall upstairs, and a laundry room and Master Suite on the right side. The Lower Level is surrounded by the veranda and contains a bathroom and storage. There is also two parking spaces located under the house that can be reached by driving under an arch on the right side of the house and exited through another arch on the left side of the house.
In order to maintain the historic feel of the home, many existing trees were left untouched to make the home seem as if it had always been among the trees. The interior of the home contains wide plank heart pine floors and doors that were purchased from the old Elks Lodge in Anderson before the building was torn down. This home is 4,515 sq. ft.
