Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: We live in downtown Charleston and getaway to Folly Beach to enjoy the river, ocean, great seafood and relaxed, signature attitude of the island. Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall are all great times to be there. Folly is the Edge of America...
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes: Our preference was for a single family home rather than a condominium to assure more privacy, quiet and ease of parking. We selected this location for the proximity to Center Street, the boat landing and the Beach. Island amenities are closeby but the street is quiet and has a great neighborhood feel with large trees. We also wanted a home suitable for year round use. When you are ready to take a break from beach activities, The Surf Cottage is an easy 15 minute drive from Historic Charleston, which offers galleries, museums, world class shopping and dining as well as the largest concentration of preserved and restored historic homes in the United States.
