Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: We are a family t he Washington DC area. Our eldest daughter attended College of Charleston and that was it...we fell in love with Charleston , SC and especially Folly Beach. Our eldest daughter lives just blocks away with her family. This is our second home and we spend a lot of time in Folly with family and friends.

Why the Owner Chose Folly Beach, SC, USA:
After extensive searching for just the right property, we picked this fabulous home on the west side of Center, which we find quieter and with less traffic, yet we are in the block of town and only 2 blocks to the beach!!!!! Walk to everything...location, location, location! This houses has the sleeping space upstairs for quiet and the family space to include a large kitchen, family room, separate dining room and laundry room on the main level. Both floors have a deck overlooking the yard and street, but tucked among the big oak trees.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Walk to town and the beach! Multi levels to accommodate all the guests needs! Plenty of parking bc Folly Beach can be a parking nightmare! Cook's kitchen- everything you need to do a fabulous meal.....or walk to one of the many Folly Beach restaurants.
