Description

The Governor's House Inn, also known as the Laurens-Rutledge House, was built in 1760 by James Laurens in the Georgian style, and sits on nearly 1/2 an acre just outside the original walled city, on the site of the former Charleston Orange Garden. Though it has been altered and added onto since construction, this grand double house boasting Greek Revival wrap around piazzas is a Category 3 House and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places for it's association with Edward Rutledge, signer of the Declaration of Independence, who purchased the home in 1788. The mansion and kitchen house is now used as an 11-room historic Inn with an Innkeepers studio, but the city allows for up to 14 guest rooms, or it could easily be converted back into a spectacular single family home.

  • Chari Karinshak REALTOR

    I myself am a knowledgeable financial professional and know the area and real estate transactions very well. Chari is a long-time friend, but that only got her foot in the door. Chari’s experience, attitude and work ethic are more than I could ask for. We know that transactions in real estate can be very personal and Chari has the interpersonal skills to handle these delicate situations. — John

  • Franne Schwarb, REALTOR

    The selling experience far exceeded my expectations. I’ve sold a few houses and never had agents who were so responsive-calls were returned promptly and concerns were addressed. Franne and Chari are extremely ethical and professional, but we also had fun. Franne and Chari went above and beyond the call of duty. I recommend highly. — Mira

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    We wanted to tell you how happy we are that we listed our house with you! You gave us a lot of helpful information about how to properly price our house and “show it”. Because of your pricing recommendation we were able to maximize the return on our “investment” after only one year in the house.We appreciate all your hard work! You were always available to us and returned our calls very promptly. The brochures you prepared on our house were colorful and full of essential information about the house and the community. We were amazed at the amount of feedback you were able to get from the realtors who showed our house. Your knowledge of the area and the other homes on the market was impressive! — Chris and Cathleen

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    My first transaction with Yvette was selling 8 acres of land. The process was complicated and long, but Yvette guided me through each and every step, checking documents, speaking with multiple organizations, and explaining maps and inspections. She even helped me move! A year later, she helped me find and purchase a new home. The transactions were entirely different, but Yvette’s responsiveness and professionalism and genuine interest in my needs remained constant. I trust Yvette for any future real estate transactions. I highly recommend her. — Jason

  • Chari Karinshak REALTOR

    Chari was very kind and patient w/my husband and I as this was my first time buying a home. There were no bumps in the road and Chari worked diligently w/the lender, inspectors, etc to ensure everything went smoothly. Everyone involved in the process met and exceeded our expectations. Chari was awesome and listened to us. I would recommend her to anyone looking to purchase and or sell a home. — Britney

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    You made the entire process smoother than we dared hope. And, we know there was more than luck involved in the rapid turnaround. You guys were with us each step of the way and your pricing advice was invaluable. — Wanda and Bruce

  • Franne Schwarb, REALTOR

    I enjoyed working with people that tried to find exactly what I was looking for without using pressure to convince me to purchase something. I would without hesitation use the team of Franne Schwarb and Chari Karinshak to purchase a new home. They are exceptional in their knowledge, availability, trustworthiness and professionalism. They make you feel as if you are their only client. — Joe

  • Franne Schwarb, REALTOR

    Working with Franne and Mark was a great experience. During a quite stressful time as it is selling a home and moving out, we had a couple of very professional realtors by our side who did an excellent job to market our home. The good work was rewarded by a quick closing under a real estate market that was quite over inventoried. Our selling price was close to our listed price. They are very responsive. Our relationship was very professional and cordial. Highly recommended. We’ve sold 3 homes already. This has been our best experience with realtors. — Luis

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    Yvette went above and beyond to make sure that I found everything and more that I wanted, and she was always more than happy to answer every question that I had. I would highly recommend using her for all of your real estate needs. — Brent

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    During an incredibly stressful time involving an international relocation Yvette made everything seem incredibly easy. She was always available to assist me and went above and beyond her mandate suggesting new options and providing me with up to date information on a continuous basis. She intuitively understood my needs even before I did and proposed solutions to each question that arose. She found me the perfect house and is still helping me make it feel like a home with suggestions, advice and helpful tips. She is a genuinely kind and pleasant person with limitless information not only about the local housing market but also schools, restaurants, traffic and the general way of life in the Charleston/Mount Pleasant area. Her assistance and experience have been an invaluable resource for me, and I look forward to working with her again. — Jean

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    Thank you Yvette! We couldn’t have done this without you. — Darlene and Jacquelyn

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    Honey and I wanted to thank you for all your work and efforts in helping sell the house. It is truly appreciated. — Chuck and Honey

  • Chari Karinshak REALTOR

    Chari was great at assessing our needs as a family and was very patient with us during the whole process. She offered professional advice and expertise without making us feel pressured “to make a deal” happen. Chari was easy to reach, prompt, and professional. Her hard-working attitude combined with a warm personality made her a great agent to have on our side! — Susie and Drew

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    You did a marvelous job of helping us find our beautiful home. Thanks so much for all the hard work, the miles driven, the millions of phone calls, etc! We truly appreciate your efforts… — Jane and Victor

  • Franne Schwarb, REALTOR

    Thank you Franne and Mark for everything. Kristy and I would be lost without your help. We didn’t know where to start, but you and Mark made everything very easy! We love our new home and can’t thank you enough for being there for us. — Kristy and Todd

  • Chari Karinshak REALTOR

    Chari Karinshak is a great REALTOR®. She treats her clients like family and keeps a professional approach. She is very diligent and goes above and beyond for her clients. — Ryan

  • Yvette Grist REALTOR

    …you both did a great job and we could not have picked a better “team” for a REALTOR®. So many times, throughout the process we wondered how people could sell their homes without experts like you. You two are the epitome of what a realtor should be! Many thanks to both of you! — Bob
