A very special house... a Folly Beach landmark. Two blocks from the ocean and one block from Folly Beach's town center, you can park your car and walk to all that Folly has to offer. Completely restored top to bottom, the home features high ceilings (10 to 14 feet), beadboard walls, sash weighted windows and hardwood floors throughout.. a classic beach house, but fully renovated.
The bath has been updated with modern fixtures and a large walk in shower. The retro kitchen has cement counters, a GE Profile gas cook top and a very cool refrigerator (pun intended). We have recently added a new central heat and air system making this classic cottage even more comfortable.. cooler in the summer and warm and cozy during the winter months.. truly a vacation home for any season. New wicker furniture in the front sunroom makes for the perfect reading spot.
Perched high on a hill, the home is a delight to stay in. With one queen sized bed, the house is really just for two people to spend the night, but with the living room opening to the sunroom and small front porch there is plenty of space to entertain a few friends. Covered back porch (8'x10') is right off kitchen and opens to side yard. Two outdoor showers (hot and cold water) are perfect for a quick rinse after beach activities. Wi-fi internet and an ipod player are our tech and entertainment options. Books and puzzles are highly encouraged.

About the owner: I was born and raised in Charleston and the surrounding 'lowcountrty' and have enjoyed boating and the beaches here all my life. My hobbies include surfing, painting and photography. I work as a full time Realtor and specialize in residential properties all around Charleston with an emphasis on the beaches and waterfront.
Why the Owner Chose Folly Beach, SC, USA:
As children my family always took us to Folly Beach and anytime relatives visited they would rent a beach house here.. I've always loved the place. My primary residence is in Mt. Plesant (on the other side of downtown Charleston about a half hour away) and for a few years I was looking for a place here as a weekend getaway. When this house became available I knew it was just what I was looking for.. a true beach house and a Folly Beach landmark. Everyone just loves this little house and I have helped many of my real estate clients find other little gems like this.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
When staying at the 'Folly House' we park the car and barely drive again until we leave, occasionally going to either end of the beach to park for long beach walks to the tips of the island. Everything else that's needed is within a few blocks. Two blocks to the front beach and pier for surfing, swimming or fishing.. one block to Center Street for all the shops and restaurants. I also use the house as my art studio and all the paintings are my originals. If you want to visit the historic part Charleston it is about a twenty minute drive. Our favorite pastime is just sitting on the front porch 'people-watching' from the perch on the hill. Folly Beach's tag line is 'The Edge of America' which perfectly fits the beach culture that thrives here.
