Built in 1735

One of the most significant homes in historic downtown Charleston, the Thomas Rose House sits on a rare double lot (one-third of an acre) on beautiful Church Street. This Georgian-style home was constructed circa 1735 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. After remaining in the same family for 75 years, this important South of Broad Street home was purchased in 2017 and meticulously restored and renovated for modern living from 2017-2020 by Glenn Keyes Architects, C.B. Elrod Co., and others.The home retains many of its noteworthy historic architectural features including a full width of the house drawing room/ballroom, original cypress paneling, and arched windows and doors, while also now offering modern luxuries including an elevator, open chef's kitchen, and primary suite including a marble double shower room, soaking tub, and large walk-in dressing rooms. Custom cabinetry and top finishes and fixtures throughout create a clean blend of historic charm and modern luxury. The expansive garden retains much of its original character and separate garden "rooms"/entertaining spaces after a thorough hardscape and plantings update in 2019-20 by Wertimer + Cline Landscape Architects and Ables Landscapes, including the addition of a swimming pool and spa with a heater, chiller and keypad-controlled retractable cover.

This property offers a rare sense of space and privacy in a walled estate-like setting, while being a short stroll to nearby shops, restaurants, playgrounds, parks and waterfront harbor. As part of the 2017 sale, the lot line between 59 Church Street and 57 Church Street was permanently dissolved, creating unusual open space in perpetuity and returning the property to its approximate original dimensions as Lot 61 in the Grand Modell of Charles Towne in the Province of Carolina in 1698. While nearly 300 years old, the main house boasts abundant natural light and 10' ceilings (even higher in the guest suite/home gym and in the fully equipped mother-in-law/guest suite). With over 5500 square feet, 6 bedrooms, 4 full baths and 2 half baths, and over 1100 square feet of attached piazzas, this home offers both grand entertaining spaces and a livable floor plan for a family or an owner/couple with frequent guests. Rare off-street parking for 4 cars behind a high fig vine-covered wall and remote-controlled mahogany gate provides easy access and enhances the feeling of privacy and security. Historic, elegant, luxurious, and livable, the Thomas Rose House must be seen to be fully appreciated!
