Nestled along the shores of one of Charleston’s most lovely beach communities, this beautiful oceanfront home on Sullivans Island is available for the first time in over sixty years. The house at 2863 Marshall Boulevard, with its soft, cozy interior and unobstructed views of the Atlantic Ocean, has served faithfully as a family beach retreat for the past six decades. It could also serve as a wonderful investment property for others, as the house does come with a short term rental permit (a virtual rarity for Sullivans Island).
An airy foyer with soaring two-story ceilings greets you as you walk into the home and the eye is immediately drawn to the ocean just beyond. The open floor plan of the living room and dining areas maximizes stunning views and makes a great space for entertaining and relaxing. In the living room, oversized windows and clear glass French doors stun with panoramic beach views while a wood-burning fireplace adds another element of coziness. Light hardwood floors add to the elegant, light, summery airiness of the space. The adjacent kitchen includes a breakfast nook surrounded by windows with ocean views, perfect for having coffee, reading, and watching the waves.
Out the French doors in the living area, a full screened porch runs the length of the home and gives sweeping views of the surf, sand, and horizon. A great place to relax with friends and family in the evening and watch the ships go in and out of Charleston Harbor. In addition to this screened porch is a sunning deck attached to a private path with beach access only footsteps away—no shoes needed! Two of the home’s four bedrooms are located on the first floor while the remaining two are found on the second floor. Additional space on the second floor is being used as a room for bunk beds, but could be perfect for a home office. Each of the bedrooms has its own private bath and is ocean facing, so the sound of crashing waves can lull you to sleep after a long day in the sun.
The home is found on a quiet part of Sullivan’s Island in biking distance of Sullivan’s renowned restaurants including Poe’s Tavern, The Obstinate Daughter, and High Thyme Cuisine. The historic attractions, shops, and eateries in downtown Charleston are only 10 miles away so you can easily pop into town for the day.
This beautiful beachfront home is a rare opportunity to own a home along the water on the serene Sullivan’s Island, an unbeatable Lowcountry location. Contact listing agent Robertson Allen to learn more!
