If you’re looking for a home that epitomizes Lowcountry living with a convenient location, look no further than 518 Whilden Street. Located in Mount Pleasant’s coveted Old Village neighborhood, the home is positioned within walking distance of local shops, restaurants and outdoor destinations such as the Old Pitt Street Bridge and Shem Creek. The Ravenel Bridge, which connects downtown Charleston to Mount Pleasant, is a short 10 minute bike ride from the home and has wide pedestrian and biking lanes where you can enjoy panoramic vistas of the harbor and downtown. If you prefer the beach, head out to Sullivans Island. The pristine ocean and colorful local restaurants make it a great summer day trip and it’s less than 10 minutes from your front door!
In addition to its prime location, 518 Whilden Street offers an abundance outdoor living and entertaining areas. The 3,143 square foot home sits on a quarter of an acre lot with a landscaped front yard and a lush, private backyard. Unwind on the wide front porch while catching a breeze from the ceiling fans or enjoy a meal on the large screened back porch. The backyard is fenced and a pergola-covered deck provides the perfect place to fire up the grill. Most of the backyard is hardscaped, for easy maintenance, and a fire pit makes the space usable throughout the year. There is also a large driveway and a two-car garage to allow for off-street parking.
Inside, the home has an open floor plan with updated, high-end finishes including recessed lighting, crown molding and hand-scraped Colorado Cherry hardwood floors throughout the first floor. All of the home’s living spaces are found on the first floor and include:

- A spacious living room with built-in bookshelves, a fireplace and French door access to the screened porch
- An open library overlooking the front porch and connecting to the sunny foyer
- A large laundry room and an updated powder room with high-end fixtures
The home’s four bedrooms are located upstairs. The guest rooms are well-sized and share a hallway full bath.
