About the Property

Go Back In Time To The 50's Where Life Was Slower And More Simple.

Cottage End is a roomy, family vacation house I built for my children and their children. As a lifelong wood worker, I've tried to fill the house with cherry and maple cabinets and ash floors with cherry accents, and exposed rafters under the cypress ceilings.

We're located on a narrow dirt road that has Clark Sound for a backdrop. We're on a dead end street so we have very little and very slow traffic.

Cottage End has three bedrooms, each with it's own bathroom and a half bath in the laundry room. The house sleeps 8 people comfortably. The master bedroom has a king bed. The two upstairs bedrooms each have a queen bed and a twin bed. One of the upstairs bedrooms also has a full size baby bed. One of my favorite things at Cottage End is the kitchen. With cherry cabinets all around, the large island contains the gas range and the island has seating on two sides. Cooking shrimp and grits while my family and friends around the island enjoying a glass of wine and conversation is my idea of a good time. We also have a screened porch in the rear. WIFI is available.

We're located on James Island and it's 12 minutes to Folly Beach and 14 minutes to downtown Charleston. Also, we're less than 10 minutes from James Island County Park where there are walking/biking trails, a climbing wall, dog park, and water park that the kids love. Also, there is a free water spray park for the little kids.

In considering renting my home, please be aware that I do not allow any parties, receptions, or other events that brings in multiple people and vehicles. My parking is limited and the neighbors do not appreciate large, loud events on this quiet street.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I am a retired General Contractor from Greenville, SC and my family has always loved Charleston. My brother was born there during the war years. So, I have many ties to Charleston. I built Cottage End for my two boy's families where I have 5 grandchildren.

Why the Owner Chose Charleston, SC, USA:
My family loves Charleston but we experienced the 'condo in the resort' type life-style and it was not for us. When my friend of 30 years offered to sell me a lot across the street from him, I took him up on it. We spent 3 years building Cottage End.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The location is unique in that there is still only a narrow, sandy, dirt street, it is not even graveled. And, the location, sitting on Clark Sound, is a perfect example of of the tidal wetlands that are so prevalent along the South Carolina coast.One can have a different view hourly as the tide comes in and out. Charleston can have tides that rise more than 7 feet. Our little road with maybe only 20 houses on it will take you back to the 1950's with it's look and pace of life.
