Property description

3000 square ft. home, built in 2007, By a designer/artist couple as a retreat. Modern furniture, Hammocks on the porches (2 screened porches and 1 sun deck) original art and photographs. On the first floor of the house there are two bedrooms, one with a queen size bed and the other with a queen and a double. Further down the hall is the den, with a TV and foosball table, plus a large screened porch with a hammock.

The second floor is an open two story space that has a kitchen with large double doors opening onto a screened porch perfect for dining or relaxing in the hammock. There's also a loft /office above connected by a catwalk to the master bedroom on the third floor. Please be aware that the master bedroom's shower is outside on the deck. (see photos) Most people love it, but a few people aren't wild about the arrangement. Bamboo and cork floors throughout.

The house (216 East Hudson Ave), is just 4 short blocks to the beach and 2 blocks away from Center Street where you'll find funky bars,and seafood restaurants.There's also a fishing pier,surf shops and an ice cream parlor.

Two blocks away, there is a playground with tennis and basketball courts, plus a pirate play area for the little ones. Also, there is a community dock one block from the house, where you can crab, fish or watch the sunset.

Well behaved house-broken, flea treated dogs are welcomed, but there is no fenced yard, so they would need to be walked on a leash. Keep in mind that dogs are not allowed on the beach between the hours of 10:00am-6:00pm from May 1st to September 30th.

This house is not available for parties unless specifically approved by the owner. It is not suitable for people under 25 without parental supervision such as college groups on spring break or prom gatherings.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: My husband David and I built the house in 2007 as a retreat. We've been renting it for awhile now and have had really great luck with people treating the house as though it were their own. We live nearby in downtown Charleston with our two children, one dog, one cat and 4 chickens. (Only the dog comes with us to the house.)

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
We love the laid back vibe of Folly and the fact that it's close to town.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Typical day: We usually start the day by walking to Bert's to pick up the paper. This is the highlight of his day because at Bert's they keep a box of dog treats behind the counter to encourage furry customers. Don't even think of tying your dog up outside, bring him in to get spoiled. Then we enjoy a stiff cup of coffee on the screen porch off of the kitchen. Eventually we'll go for a bike ride or load up the wagon and head for the beach. Hopefully at some point I'll wind up in the hammock with a book and then a little nap. For dinner, I might take a drive over to Crosby's to pick up some fish to cook on the grill or if feeling lazy, we'll wander over to Center St. to one of the many restaurants. Summertime and the livin's easy...
