Description

The Thomas Rose House was constructed c. 1735 and is considered one of Charleston's best preserved colonial dwellings. The house has retained many of its original architectural elements, including extensive interior wood paneling, decorative mantelpieces and a unique full-width second-story drawing room unlike any other in the city. The building was one of the first residences to be listed within Charleston's Historic District and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The property consists of a double lot, and features an expansive Loutrel Briggs-designed garden and original outbuildings. Rear piazza enclosures and an addition to connect the outbuildings with the main house have allowed for extra living space without jeopardizing the dwelling's esteemed Georgian character.

greatschools GreatSchools Ratings for South Carolina are based on the Standards of Learning (SOL) End-of-Grade reading, writing, math, science and history/social science results and the End-of-Course reading, writing, algebra I, algebra II, geometry, biology, chemistry, earth science, world geography, Virginia and United States history, world history I and world history II results. Grade 8 history/social science results were not included due to incomplete reporting by the state. GreatSchools compared the test results for each grade and subject across all Virginia schools and divided them into 1 through 10 ratings (10 is the best). Please note, private schools are not required to release test results, so ratings are available only for public schools. GreatSchools Ratings cannot be compared across states, because of differences in the states' standardized testing programs. Keep in mind that when comparing schools using GreatSchools Ratings it's important to factor in other information, including the quality of each school's teachers, the school culture, special programs, etc.
