Ansonborough Real Estate

Many properties making up Ansonborough, Charleston real estate were built in the 18th and 19th centuries. The district houses Charleston's oldest private home, the Col. William Rhett House, which dates back to 1712. The neighborhood was conceived in 1696 as the first suburb for the old Charles Town, a walled city back then. The story goes that George Anson, a prominent colonial naval officer, won rights to the property in a card game with a rich local businessman. Ansonborough gets its name from George Anson.

Today the district retains the old look and feel of Charleston from long ago, but is a short walk from the hustle and bustle of a large 21st century city. Types of homes in Ansonborough include condominiums, quaint town and carriage houses, as well as larger single and double houses boasting Greek Revival and Georgian styles.
