Mount Pleasant cottage description

Coleman Cottage is in the middle of everything wonderful that Charleston has to offer. This beautifully appointed home is located in the heart of the historic area of the Old Village. This is a charming neighborhood within 10 minutes of beaches and historic downtown Charleston. You are minutes from the restaurants on Sullivan's Island or gourmet dining in downtown Charleston.

This historic home has quite a history! It has been moved twice and was owned by the late Mt. Pleasant Mayor Francis Coleman. Beautifully renovated in 2007, it has hardwood floors, a designer kitchen with marble countertops and top of the line appliances, and a lovely bedroom and bath. It was part of the Old Village House and Garden tour in 2010.

If you are headed to the beaches, you can choose Sullivan's island or the Isle of Palms. Both have beautiful strands of pristine beaches.

You can walk down to the Pitt Street center for an ice cream cone or shopping. The Pitt Street bridge is a great walk to go crabbing or catch a fish.

Alhambra Hall is a mile away and has a park and views of the Charleston Harbor.

There are many restaurants within walking distance of this house so you can dine and relax on the Shem Creek waterfront and watch the boats and dolphins.

You can also walk to Shem Creek to charter a fishing boat, rent a kayak or paddle board or buy some fresh seafood from Mt. Pleasant Seafood.

The Memorial Waterfront Park is at the base of the Ravenel Bridge. Here you can park to walk the bridge for spectacular views of the city or walk along the pier.

Just a short drive from the house is Historic Downtown Charleston. There are so many wonderful things to do: historic homes, a horse and buggy tour, some of the best restaurants in the country - too many things to name!

The owner is more than happy to answer any questions or just point you in the right direction. This is a town that you will love!

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2001

          About the owner: I have lived in the Charleston area for over 30 years. Having lived in the Historic Downtown and the Old Village, I have a special appreciation for the beauty of this area. Right now I spend most of my time in another state, so I love to introduce visitors to my wonderful city. You may also meet Priscilla, the cat, who comes and goes on the porch. She is very shy and loves her neighborhood and yard.

          Why the Owner Chose Mount Pleasant:
          This property is so charming and has quite an interesting history. It has been moved twice and sits in a delightful spot today. The small, manicured yard and large wraparound porch makes for a delightful spot to relax. Enjoy your glass of wine in the swing or hammock!

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          Location! You are 2 blocks from the Charleston harbor and in between Sullivan's island and downtown. There are so many activities right at your fingertips. You will not be disappointed with your decision to stay at Coleman cottage!
