About the Property

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms, 1 Bath (Sleeps 6)

This home is one of the original Folly Beach cottages. There are three bedrooms(1 queen, 1 full, 2 twins). 1 bath(updated in '12). Nice open floor plan. Heart of pine wood floors through out. Screened in front porch. Nice back yard. New addition of big backyard deck.

The location of this home sits in a nice, quiet part of the island.
It is close to everything you want access to, at the beach. Only 3 blocks to the ocean. Two blocks to Center St. where all the restaurants, and shopping are on the island. Folly Beach Park, for the kids, is within walking distance too. Tennis courts/Basketball court there as well. Bert's grocery market is within walking distance too!! Who doesn't love Berts, right?! Our home is on a full lot, with a nice back yard. When we are there, we walk from the back yard(which is closer) to the beach.

This home has the charm of the Lowcountry. Very comfortable and cozy. Home surrounded by palms, and a trophy live oak, that is easily over 100 yrs. old.
This part of the island is also great for biking, or renting a golf cart while you are here. Enough room to park a boat on a trailer in the back yard. Up to 20' or so. Public boat ramp is only 3 blocks away.

The Historic District of Charleston is only 20 minutes away by car.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: I moved to Charleston, SC from Wilmington, NC. I went to school at UNCW and graduated with an Environmental Science degree., and fell in love with the coast. Ended up in real estate. Working for real estate for developers, it has taken me, up and down the coast from NC, to FL. I met my beautiful wife in Charleston, and we are now living in the Blue Ridge Mountains, in the city of Asheville raising our family.

Why the Owner Chose Folly Beach, SC, USA:
When i first moved to Charleston, i rented a home on Folly Beach. It had such a great, laid back feel, unlike other beaches that i have lived before. The home i had rented, had a similar location to 303 E.Huron, close to center st., and a short walk down to the beach. When i was shopping for a home, those criteria were very important. I also love trees, and the old mature palms blowing in the breeze was also a very welcome sound to me. There is a trophy live oak(huge canopy) that is very indicative of the south, that greets you as you pull in to the home.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
The walk down to Center St. is relaxing as you take in the scenery, and before you know it, you are in the middle of all the shopping, and great places to eat. The Folly Crabshack is a favorite for local seafood, or for twist, go to the new Taco Boy restaurant. A walk on the pier after dinner for ice cream is a given. The location is what you will like about this home, convenient to everything, but on a quiet street on Folly. Also to drive to downtown Charleston from here is very scenic, and only 20 minutes away.
