About the Property

3 BR, 1.5 BA, sleeps 6

Our house is ideally located between historic Charleston and the beaches of Sullivan's Island and the Isle of Palms (only a 10 minute drive in either direction). We are on the edge of the beautiful and historic "Old Village" of Mt. Pleasant, whose streets, lined with Victorian homes, offer many views of Charleston harbor. From our home you can walk or bike to several gorgeous waterfront parks, and numerous restaurants are within walking distance of our house, including the many waterfront seafood restaurants on Shem Creek. There's a weekly farmer's market 1 block away.

Two canoe/kayak outfitters and several deep-sea fishing boats are a five-minute walk from the house. You can rent our two kayaks for a small extra fee, and stand-up paddleboard lessons are given in the creek.

We have an enormous fenced backyard (about 2/3 acre). You can bring your boat and launch from the landing you can see from our sunroom.

We are only one block away from the starting line for the Charleston Bridge Run.

Location

View Guide powered by:

Car: Recommended

Mt. Pleasant is a charming, historic village situated 10 minutes in either direction from historic Charleston and from the beaches of Sullivan's Island and the Isle of Palms. Our house is only about three blocks from many waterfront seafood restaurants looking out on the shrimping fleet of Shem Creek and about four blocks from the historic "Old Village" of Mt. Pleasant.

Other Activities: Weekly farmer's market 1 block away. Walking and biking in Old Village of Mt. Pleasant close by.

 

Owner info

About the owner: In 1958, when this part of Simmons Street was a dirt road, my brother Ed and I helped our parents clear the land so construction on our new house could begin. Eventually we inherited the house, and we love Mt. Pleasant so much that we decided to keep it. I teach at a college in Gainesville, Fl. Ed and Martha live 40 miles north of Mt. Pleasant in McClellanville, where Ed works with the Francis Marion National Forest. Martha works in Charleston as a curator of historical archeology at the Charleston Museum.
