The Gate House is located in a beautiful garden which is often on the Charleston Garden Tours. You are shaded by ancient live oak trees with Spanish moss.You can walk to anywhere downtown.
History: The Gate House is part of the William Rett Plantation. The main house is considered by many to be the oldest house in Charleston. The market area is two blocks away. Carriage tours pass the house throughout the day.
Home Tours: This is the perfect location for the spring and fall Charleston Tours of Historic Homes. We are often on the tour. The garden outside the gate house surrounding a pond with water lilies, Koi fish and our fountain is one of the few gardens in Charleston visible from the street.
