Passing through the hands of two esteemed Charleston families, the Roses, and the Moises, the mansion eventually found its way to Giovani Sottile in 1910. Mr. Sottile's patronage led to the mansion's transformation into the Italian consulate, a role it maintained under his descendants until the present owners acquired it. Gracing the prestigious National Register of Historic Places since 2019, this distinguished home proudly preserves its opulent formal rooms and numerous original historic features. An Italian gem waiting for you to enjoy
