Location, location location... You will be minutes from plenty to do in and around Mount Pleasant, a suburb of Charleston. This neighborhood is perfect for a nice walk or bike ride. Going any direction will either lead you toward sandy beaches, marshy creeks, plenty of restaurants or the Arthur Ravenel Bridge which has an excellent view of the area and wonderful to cross outside of the car!
Also located in the neighborhood AKA the 'Old Village' you will find 'The Old Bridge' which used to link Sullivan's Island to Mount Pleasant during the Civil War era. This has now been converted to a nice park and surrounded by the intercoastal waterway. Great location for fishing, crabbing, shrimping, or watching the sun set over Charleston from the benches.
Restaurants on Shem Creek give you a taste of Charleston’s finest seafood while watching the shrimp boats come in to dock or kayaks paddle on by. A local playground is about 3/4 of a mile away which sports clay tennis courts for public use. The old village 'Pitt Street' area gives you a unique feeling of what Mount Pleasant was like when we first spread out from Charleston onto the islands...
The house is minutes from Sullivan's Island; Home of Fort Moultrie where the first shots of the civil war rang! The Fort and its Museum is free of cost. You are also located about 2 miles from Patriots Point which is a Naval Wartime Museum (Golf Course across street).
In 5 minutes you can also go to the Charleston visitors center downtown. You will see advertisements for all the splendor Charleston and it’s surrounding areas have to offer in one location. There is just too much to list here…
If you want to be local to all things historic to contemporary, the old village is the place to stay…
I was born and raised in Charleston on the Isle of Palms. My family moved to Mt. Pleasant right before Hugo hit in 1989 because the beach traffic was too much. We settled in Old Mt. Pleasant a block from my Grandparents. I currently live in Rock Hill, SC outside of Charlotte. However, I am looking to return to Charleston in the near future and currently use this home when it's not rented to build my business back in the low country.
The classy lady in this photo was my grandmother and one of the original owners of this home. I have upgraded the property to include hardwoods throughout, updated bath and kitchen along with new windows throughout. This is my homestead and I lived here many years growing up. Therefore, even though the home is now updated and most personal items have been removed to open up for you to enjoy, it will always be home to me.. I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do!
Fishing, Crabbing and Shrimping locations REALLY near, Canoe drop-off on Shem Creek (2 min. away), Cards and Board Games on site.
