Folly Beach is a laid-back community situated just 8 miles from downtown Charleston. There are restaurants and souvenir shops in abundance on Folly Island and just a short drive up Folly Road you will find stores to meet your every need. Kayaking, surfing, fishing and sailing are just a few of the water sports enjoyed on Folly.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Both Bob and Mary Lu grew up and live in Western NY near Buffalo. They grew up about 3 blocks from each other but only met after their college years. They have three children and are proud Grandparents of 5 Grandchildren.

Why the Owner Chose Folly Beach, SC, USA:
Their son went to College of Charleston. While he was there he sailed, surfed and taught sailing while living on Folly Beach. Bob and Mary Lu enjoyed the area so much that they decided they wanted a house on Folly both for their own use and for others to use when they were unable to be there.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house was built in 1935 and had had little renovation since then. It had been used as a summer home. Descendants of the same family that built it were still living in it when Bob and Mary Lu purchased it in 2004. They wanted to keep as much of the original house as possible yet expand it to make room for more overnight guests. It is a combination of the old and new yet has the original feel of the beach house.
