18 acres of land on Charleston’s barrier island of Folly Beach across the street from the Atlantic Ocean. In its history, it housed the 1920’s built Folly Boys Camp, has and continues to be a bird and wildlife sanctuary, and from the looks of the terrain, was a supply loading point for Union forces in preparation for the Battle of Charleston in the Civil War. Over the years the owners restored the 1,600 sf cottage, groomed the land, built a dock to deep water, and added fun stuff like a tree house, outdoor stone fireplace and dining table, swings and over a mile of walking/golf cart trails through moss laden oaks and along the riverfront and marsh. Inside, the all heart pine house has been restored with modern conveniences and decorated with funky antiques and artwork.
If you have a desire to slow down the clock and reconnect with sunsets, water and the night sky, then the River House may be what you’re looking for. It is a cozy 2 bed/2 bath getaway perfect for two couples or a small family. Downtown Charleston is literally 22 minutes (12 miles) away with Folly being the closest beach island to the town’s history, culture and distinguished restaurant scene.
A Boater's / Fisherman's Paradise the River House has direct access to the Ocean approximately 5 nautical miles to the Intercoastal Waterway.
The land sits on the Folly River where the Stono River meets the Atlantic. The deep water dock has a covered sitting area for fishing and crabbing. There is a 10 x 20 foot floating dock for docking during the day.
