Year Purchased: 1948
About the owner: Stanley Reahard is the oldest child of the original home owners: My parents bought this property when my Father was on a 30 day leave during WWII. After the war they built a small bungalow with a side porch. They later added a front porch, and a second floor with a large deck for enjoying the views in the evening. When hurricane Hugo destroyed the house in 1989, they rebuilt the current house which we have all enjoyed for the past 20 years. With 6 bedrooms, a wide front porch and two living rooms it has served our growing family very well.
In 2011-2012 the house has undergone a major renovation, updating the kitchens, the bathrooms, adding a huge deck upstairs.
In spite of all that it maintains its comfortable family feel and is great for multi-generational gatherings--the kind we alway enjoy each year with our own family.
Why the Owner Chose Isle of Palms: My family is from Summerville SC which is 30 miles away. Before the days of air conditioning (I know--it was a long time ago!) lowcountry folks picked up stakes and moved to their beach houses or their mountain houses to escape the suffocating heat of the towns and cities.
We would move down looking like the Okies in my dad's green pickup truck, carrying all of our bedding, towels, beach chairs, the family dog and a nurse for us children.
In those days high tide came so close to the house that my mother could sit on the porch, watch 2 of the children playing the the gully and hear the baby when he woke up from his nap. Today you have to walk the length of a football field to get to the beach but it is certainly worth it!
The Unique Benefits at this House: Time on the beach and watching the ocean are always a great joy. Look for orange tape marking sea turtle nests and find out when they are expected to hatch. It's well worth staying up all night to help the little ones race to the open sea.
For families with young children we are a 5 minute walk from the IOP Recreation center with its tennis courts and play ground and gymnasium. They have many activities for families including Yoga classess for adults.
