Agent Remarks

Circa 1688. Known as the Charleston Pink House, this historic home is America's second oldest masonry residence and Charleston's oldest residence. This perfectly placed pied-a-terre sits on one of the City's original cobblestone streets and is constructed of 18-inch thick pink Bermuda stone. The property retains many of its original details and features a beautiful Loutrel Briggs walled garden. This home stands alone with its unparalleled charm and historic significance. Past uses of the Pink House have included a residence, a tavern, a law office, and an art gallery. Currently zoned and used as residential. With proper approvals from the City of Charleston Zoning, commercial uses could possibly be pursued.
