About Robert Ingram

We fell in love with the Charleston area when our oldest son attended college at Charleston Southern. We love the beaches, walking and shopping in the historic district, shopping at Tanger Outlet, playing golf, visiting the plantations when the azaleas are in bolo, etc, etc. When our younger son decided to live in the area after graduating college, we knew we wanted to have a place in the Charleston area, too! We never grow tired of going to Charleston!

Robert Ingram purchased this townhome in 2008

Why Robert Ingram chose Charleston Area

Beach lovers at heart, this location was perfect for us. We can be at the beach in minutes and we're also so close to downtown Charleston where the shopping (and eating) is great!

We just recently discovered the James Island County Park and we can't wait to take our little granddaughters there.

What makes this townhome unique

We love the trails around the neighborhood that provide a safe place to walk and ride bikes. If we need anything at all, the Super Walmart is just up the street. Folly Beach is just minutes away. It offers a pier, lots of beach shops, and dining spots. Downtown Charleston with all its charm is just over the bridge....

Perfect fit between city and beach

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this townhouse! It was decorated so cute and had everything we could have asked for and more. The price was comparable to a hotel but with so much more to offer. I would definitely recommend this location for a visit to Charleston or Folly Beach!

PERFECT!! Great location, extremely clean and absolutely adorable! Stayed at this property for a Girls Getaway and it was the best decision we made!! Full kitchen saved on eating out for every meal and the beach accessories they have available made our time on the beach that much better! I really enjoyed staying at this property and would highly recommend it to anyone!
