No longer an actual attraction. This is the personal home of someone and can only be viewed from the outside. It's still cool to swing by and see, though I wouldn't make a trip just to see it.

You can't go in as mentioned in other posts but you can look in the window and the mail-slot. It's good while on a waking tour of Charleston (we used oyster point historical walking tours). The place just sold for $1.1m and is only 1,085 square feet. Been sitting for a year or so while the owner decides what to... More

If you are walking through Charleston, it's easy to stop by this attraction. All you can do is peer through the windows, but knowing it's the oldest home is pretty neat! Cobblestone streets only blocks from a historic graveyard and market street.

It's worth a stop to photograph and walk the cobblestone streets. Can't go inside it, but you can check it off the list of things to see in Charleston.

The pink house has a lot of history. In the early days it was in the red light district. Today it's a gallery. It's on a cobblestone street so wear comfortable shoes in this area of historical buildings. Great photo ops, especially the garden area behind the gallery.

Throughout many years coming to Charleston this was always my favorite Art Gallery. I so missed seeing and talking to Alice and many other Artist. Thank you for all the great art we have brought from you for many years. Always enjoyed your stories of history and the Arts. You all are missed :(

Closed and up for sale. We walked over to see the Pink House after finding out that it was one of the remaining structures from the days when Charleston was literally walled in for protection from outside invaders. How sad to see this adorable property up for sale. One million dollars.

Stopped in Good Friday and was greeted by a lovely artist Alice. She was very informative on the history of this house/ tavern/ brothel and told us to explore all 3 floors. She is passionate about this gallery and house. There is a ghost, but we didn't feel the presence. I was impressed with the art- beautiful street scenes, tiles... More

I liked what was displayed there and the house itself is really cute and has its own story to tell. The lady who runs the place told me, she had to close down after 20 years since the house was sold to a private investor. that is sad indeed. but even sadder that she - for whatever reason - felt...
