Historic Sullivans Island SC Home For Sale
*2320 Middle St, Sullivans Island, SC 29482 is no longer on the market or has been removed from the MLS.*
Welcome to timeless 2320 Middle Street, a Sullivan’s Island home for sale that embodies all the history and charm for which this quaint island community is known. Built c. 1900 and listed on the Sullivan’s Island historic register, this distinctive home has seen the island develop from a distressed post-Civil War town to one of the most sought after beach retreats in the Southeastern United States.
2320 Middle Street is nestled on a large street-to-street lot and boasts 3,167 square feet of character and charm. And by facing the ocean just two blocks away, the soft Atlantic breeze fills the home when the windows are open.
Currently configured as a triplex with the upstairs unit and the separate guest cottage currently housing tenants, this property boasts enormous flexibility to meet any lifestyle you are looking for on the island. Because there were no structural changes made when the 2nd floor was converted to an apartment, it could easily be converted back to a single-family home.
The main house is entered through a front porch that spans the length of the home and can be accessed through the formal living and dining rooms. Historic features throughout the home include heart pine hardwood floors, high beaded board ceilings and walls and massive windows that offer ample natural light. The current owners have the grand foyer set up as a dining room that opens into a gourmet kitchen with a butler’s pantry, granite counters, a large butcher-block island and breakfast bar.
With a symmetric floor plan on the main level (see floor plan on full information page), the foyer is centered between two living spaces and dual master bedrooms that mirror each other in design. Each living space offers access to the front porch and original fireplaces. The master suite on the east side of the home is equipped with an original fireplace and a large closet and bathroom while the master suite on the west side boasts an original fireplace, a bathroom and a private study.
The craftsman style, 1 bedroom unit on the 2nd level has a separate outside staircase and entrance. It offers a small kitchen, living room, bedroom and full bathroom. And similar to the main level, it features heart pine floors and beaded board ceilings and walls. It cannot be accessed from the interior of the main level to retain privacy for its current residents, but with the removal of a boarded door, it could make for a spacious upstairs living area in a single-family home.
The guest home – which served as a Cobbler’s Shop for the Avinger family in the early 1900’s – sits detached from the main house to the west side of the property. This 450 square foot space includes a living room, kitchenette, full bathroom and separate bedroom. It features a screened porch that extends the length of the cottage and an outside shower for washing off after a day at the beach. Offering privacy from the main living areas, the space could be used a number of ways, whether it is an in-law suite, long term rental or even a small family business like Avinger Family decided it would be!
Exterior features of 2320 Middle Street include a back patio, an outside shower, ample off-street parking, a 1-car carport and a large shed for storage or a workshop.
It sits on a prime location – 2 blocks from the beach, 2 blocks from restaurants and bars, 3 blocks from the Sullivan’s Island neighborhood park and 5 blocks from the community library. And with Sullivan’s connected to Mt. Pleasant by the Ben Sawyer bridge, residents are just a short drive or bike ride to everything a larger city has to offer.
This rare Charleston SC beach home for sale offers Sullivan’s Island living at is best.
