Private Homes house description

COMING IN 2014: BRAND NEW KITCHEN! Complete kitchen remodel, all new cabinets, countertops, stainless steel appliances, kitchen island/bar. Lots of other updates, including new patio furniture, front door, landscaping - check back soon for updated photos!

Recently remodeled, private 3 bedroom, 3 bath home, sleeps up to 10. Hidden away amongst the trees on a marsh-front lot with crabbing/kayaking dock, the Escape boasts ocean views from the upper screen porch and easy beach access across the street. It's less than a mile from outstanding surfing at the Washout, and short drive to downtown Charleston.

Dual master suites, one with king bed, sitting area, it's own TV and surround-sound system, and one with a queen bed and en suite bathroom. The 3rd BR has 4 bunk beds and is adjacent to a large bathroom w/ shower and tub: perfect for families or a girls/guys weekend away. There's also a super-comfy full/queen air sofa-bed in the living room to sleep an additional 1-2 guests. The house has an open floor with a large dining table that easily seats 8-10, and a separate kitchen eating area. Front and back decks with outdoor dining on both and a pro-style stainless steel gas grill on the front deck. A screen porch above the rear master BR has incredible 360 views of the ocean, marsh, Morris Island lighthouse, Long Island River and Lighthouse Creek, Charleston Harbor and the most amazing sunsets you've ever seen. Large open back yard with private dock for crabbing, launching your kayak, or just watching the sunset and marsh wildlife.

Numerous amenities, including cable TV with HD, two flat screen HD TVs, 2 Blu-ray players, surround sound, outdoor speakers, iPod/iPhone dock, Netflix/Pandora, Wii, high-speed internet. New furniture, new carpet; the entire house has been recently re-painted and re-decorated. Fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and microwave, basic spices, and all the cookware you need for a basic breakfast or an all-out low-country boil.

Public beach access is across the street, and the location at Folly's NE end means sparsely populated, lush beaches, and outstanding surfing and surfcasting. You're a short walk or bike ride from the NE end of the island and up-close views of the famous Morris Island lighthouse. A short bike ride in the other direction puts you at the restaurants, shops, and bars along Center Street, the Folly Pier, or the iconic 24/7 Bert's Market for some organic vegetables, a bottle of wine, or a growler of one of your favorite microbrews. Downtown Charleston is a short 20 minute drive in the car, making Folly Beach Escape the perfect location for visitors looking to experience a little of bit of everything Charleston and the South Carolina coast have to offer.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2010

          About the owner: We're a family of five who bought Folly Beach Escape in 2010 as a beach get-away and landing spot for visits to Charleston. Amy Anne is a native South Carolinian who's lived in both Charleston and the Columbia area, and we were were married in Charleston in 2005. We head to Charleston and the barrier islands several times a year, especially in the fall and spring, to visit family and friends, eat some good Charleston food, and bask in the glory of the SC coast.

          Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
          When we were looking for a house, we wanted to have our cake and eat it too: the beauty of the marsh and tidal creeks, and easy access to the ocean and beach; a private, secluded location, but also an easy drive to downtown Charleston; and a place where we could stay in and cook up some blue crabs or redfish and have a quiet, relaxing dinner out on the deck one night, and head into town for some drinks and nightlife the next. This house and Folly Beach offered all that and more, and we couldn't pass it up.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Folly Beach Escape offers the kind of experience that can only be had at the tidal creek/marsh side of the northeast end of the island: marsh/river/harbor views one side, and the ocean on the other. Do not miss the sunsets from the back deck, screened porch, or dock - they are like nothing else. Put the crab traps in (they're hanging up in the laundry room) with some bait from Crosby's and get yourself some fresh blue crabs for crab cakes. Read a book on the deck and listen to the waves. Or put some John Coltrane on the outdoor speakers and open up a bottle of wine. Be sure to turn left out of the driveway and head to the end of the road. The park at the end of the island is beautiful and very secluded, and the best place to photograph the lighthouse. Folly Beach, unlike some of the other barrier islands, is a place, like the extended motto of it's 24/7/364 market (Bert's), that's really meant for everyone: young, old, hipsters, hippies, surfers, conservatives, liberals, fat, thin, black, white - come as you are - there's something for everyone and everyone is welcome.
