Keywords: The history of the Folly Barrack House began at the turn of the last century with WWI. The army installed hundred of metal 'barracks' in North Charleston near the Naval Yard to house troops headed for Europe. At the end of the war, the 'barracks' were given away to anyone who would dis-assemble them and haul them away. In the mid 1920's, two 'barracks' were brought to Folly, re-assembled, a room placed between them, a front porch added across the front and a back porch also. This formed the beginnings of the Folly Barrack House. Our family has vacationed here since 1950 and wants to share the experience with others. Complete renovation Spring 2012. A two minute walk to the beach, and just minutes from all the charms and attractions of historic Charleston. Only 11 blocks from all Folly's shops and restaurants. Ocean view from sun room/den.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1930

              About the owner: I am the manager of a historic hotel in downtown Charleston. I know what is needed to have a comfortable stay and have tried to incorporate it into the renovations on our family beach house. I have 3 kids and we love the beach. We go crabbing, fishing, and boating. I have enjoyed this house since I was born and would love to pass along that experience with others

              Why the Owner Chose Other Folly Beach Properties:
              I did not choose it, it chose me! I could not have done a better job if I had tried.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              You will be staying in a piece of Folly history. You will notice that the kitchen ceiling is the original army hut ceiling from 1920. A fully equipped modern kitchen if your in the mood for cooking and great food just 11 blocks away if you are not. If you tire of the sand and still crave the water, James Island county park is just 15 minutes away and has a great water park called the Splash Zone. Historic Charleston is also just 15 minutes away.
