Inscription. This Georgian style residence, attributed to architect and master builder Thomas Lee, was built for Colonial Judge Thomas Lamboll c. 1739. The current Greek Revival piazzas were added c. 1845. The Lamboll Lands included numerous holdings in an area that extended from the north line of 25 King Street, east and west to the Cooper and Ashley Rivers and south to White Point Gardens. It was on White Point Gardens that the Lambolls cultivated a large rose garden accessible only by boat. Mr. and Mrs. Lamboll were noted amateur botanists who maintained an extensive botanical garden that began on the southwest corner of King and Lamboll Streets and extended south to Charleston Harbor.
