Private Homes house description

A very special house... a Folly Beach landmark. Two blocks from the ocean and one block from Folly Beach's town center, you can park your car and walk to all that Folly has to offer. Completely restored top to bottom, the home features high ceilings (10 to 14 feet), beadboard walls, sash weighted windows and hardwood floors throughout.. a classic beach house.

The bath has been updated with modern fixtures and a large walk in shower. The retro kitchen has cement counters, a GE Profile gas cook top and a very cool refrigerator (pun intended).

Perched high on a hill, the home is a delight to stay in. With one queen sized bed, the house is really just for two people to spend the night, but with the living room opening to the sunroom and small front porch there is plenty of space to entertain a few friends. Covered back porch (8'x10') is right off kitchen and opens to side yard. Two outdoor showers (hot and cold water) are perfect for a quick rinse after beach activities. We have just added wi-fi internet and an ipod player at the request of our guests.

            Folly Pier View on map

            The Folly Pier is our major landmark... also a Charleston County Park. Walk out to the end upon arrival to get a feel for the town. Free admission for pedestrians and you can rent fishing gear for a nominal fee. Great place to watch surfing from high above.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2006

          About the owner: I was born and raised in Charleston and the surrounding 'lowcountrty' and have enjoyed boating and the beaches here all my life. My hobbies include surfing, painting and photography. I work as a full time Realtor and specialize in residential properties all around Charleston with an emphasis on the beaches and waterfront.

          Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
          As children my family always took us to Folly Beach and anytime relatives visited they would rent a beach house here.. I've always loved the place. My primary residence is in Mt. Plesant (just north of Charleston) and for a few years I was looking for a place here as a weekend getaway. When this house became available I knew it was just what I was looking for.. a true beach house and a Folly Beach landmark. Everyone just loves this little house and I have helped many of my clients find other little gems like this.. although none are quite as cute.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          When we come to the 'Folly House' we park the car and barely drive again until we leave, occasionally driving to either end of the beach to park for long, deserted walks to the tips of the island. Everything else that's needed is within walking distance. Two blocks to the front beach and pier for surfing, swimming or fishing.. one block to Center Street for all the shops and retaurants. I also use the house as my art studio and all the paintings are my originals. If you want to visit the historic part Charleston it is about a twenty minute drive. Our favorite pastime is just sitting on the front porch 'people-watching' from the perch on the hill. Folly Beach's tag line is 'The Edge of America' which perfectly fits the beach culture that thrives here.
