Williams as a cotton warehouse, the building where 5 Motley Lane is housed, was later used by Robertson, Taylor and Company to process cotton brought into Charleston from the plantations. The Property was purchased by the Weils family, who added the front section on Anson Street and operated a Mattress factory until the 1970's. The building was then rejuvenated in the early 1990's as three condos, with no formal regime.This contemporary three-story townhouse greets you with a black iron gate, brick entryway, and red door.
