Property description

Located in Sunset Point, enjoy this gorgeous private home (ESPECIALLY boat owners) with a deep water dock on right on the Folly inlet with breathtaking sunsets.
This warm home boasts 4 bedrooms and 2 1/2 baths and is PERFECT for any holiday or special occasion, or just a restful vacation. You will feel like you are 'right at home' in this peaceful and quiet location.
Sleeping 10 with a 'comfey' futon in the sun room. Water views from just about every room with a large family room, fully equipped kitchen and airy sun room. Rest on several nicely furnished decks and balcony overlooking the Folly Inlet with your deep water dock right there. Have your morning coffee, enjoy beautiful scenery at the bistro set situated at the water. The grounds and interior are treated monthly for mosquitos and pest so, you won't have to worry about getting bitten. You'll be able to enjoy the outdoors watching the daily activities of the inlet including dolphins playing and many different species of birds and wildlife. This part of the island is the way to go when you just want to 'beat the 'crowds'.
Lounge right in your 'back yard' on your personal dock or hammock and see all kinds of interesting sites changing by the minute. Boaters, water skiing, para sailing, paddle boarders, fishermen and kayakers. Jump in your choice of water activity (2 man sea Kayack provided) for a short adventure down the river to Sunset Cay Marina or to Bowen's Island for a great lunch or dinner. You can also head the other direction up the river and hang around the bridge to see who is going and coming and glad that you are not in all of that traffic. Or you might just want to bob around and soak in the sun on an over sized float with a nice cool drink in your hand while tied to the dock. No worries! You better believe that you will see the best sunset ever. You may even feel like catching your own dinner by just doing a bit of fishing shrimping, or crabbing right off of the dock.
This is one of the most beautiful homes (and well kept secrets) on the island makes for this perfect slice of Low country paradise is now available to you for a unforgettable vacation. Just drive down the private road and run into a spectacular view of the inlet and sunsets. This unique location offers unimaginable, views and one of the few private docks on Folly Beach while offering exceptional seclusion and privacy for your family. The beach (approximately 6 blocks away) and all of the excitement of Center Street is a short walk away.
Standing on the deck of home, you have 180 degree views of the Folly Inlet and many Charleston landmarks including the Morris Island Light house and the Ravenel Bridge. Bring your boat and enjoy the convenience of and privacy of this deep water dock and explore these awesome sites! The dock only stretching 175 ft. is easy to access situated on the point of the river.
This newly renovated home with updated furnishings and window treatments can comfortably sleeps 8 to 10. The house has wonderful nooks and crannies for gatherings of friends and family with the large sun room, 2 dining areas, and spacious great room with wood burning fireplace. The large kitchen is equipped with new stainless steel appliances is perfect for those who enjoy cooking!
Off of the kitchen is a spacious laundry room. The three bedrooms are upstairs including the master suite with jacuzzi, large walk in shower and spectacular views with a private porch. Pamper yourself! The fourth bedroom is located downstairs with a queen size bed.

This welcoming home allows privacy AND YOU WILL TRULY HAVE THE FOLLY EXPERIENCE WHILE STAYING IN THIS AMAZING HOME WHERE YOU CAN EXPERIENCE ALL THAT FOLLY HAS TO OFFER.
Very safe and spacious for the kids to play outside, ride their bikes, explore, swim and too fun just jumping into the water from the pier head. This home offers such a relaxing environment with out having to worry about beach 'neighbors' overindulging next to you.
You won't believe all of the beauty and serenity of being on the water even while grilling out and watching sunsets. No crazy boat landings to deal with. Just dock or pull up your kayak on the floating dock and walk in the house. Bring all of your floating toys and enjoy.
Also, if you need room for a few extra guests, the Sunset House has a 'little sister' called the 'Lil Pearl"' located in the that interior of the island only 4 blocks from the beach. It's , a sweet little 2BR/ 1 Bath/ hot & cold outdoor shower/ ground floor cottage only 4 blocks from the beach. It accommodates 4-6 guests. You can view it at listing number 654511.
Hope to see you soon and I will offer all of the 'tips' on Folly, free of charge.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1991

About: My husband and I built this home in 1991 after moving to the Low Country from Columbia, S. C. After many years of looking for the right property, we found paradise. Our desire was to raise our 2 daughters in a safe place while enjoying the beach and all of the fun things Folly has to do. Living on the water and being outdoors allowed our girls to grow up learning how to crab, fish, shrimp and an all around appreciation of the water and all of the beauty this home has to offer. They are pretty much grown and out of the house. Now, I am in that ''sizing down mode' and it's time to let others enjoy this home located in such a beautiful place.

Why Private Homes:
This is not your typical vacation rental. While you will find everything that you need to enjoy your stay, I have maintained the 'feel at home' ambiance in this warm and inviting house. You will find many details tended to to make your stay enjoyable.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
You can swing in the hammock or sunbath on the private dock while enjoying all of he river activities, views and outrageous sunsets. You'll have to decide...beach today or hanging on the river. Sometimes, I find that a very tough decision and feel so fortunate to have it!
