Getting around

This is a unique property on a large peninsula lot, surrounded entirely by Marsh and Water. The views and privacy are spectacular ! You have use of our backyard dock...great for romance and wine. We provide Kayaks and Stand Up Paddleboards for guests to use. Also great for pulling in crabs and fishing. The house is only a fast hop over the bridge to Downtown Charleston....and the bridge is walkable. Uber and Lyft are swift - the bridge is about 3 miles long to get there. The beach is the other direction...only 6 miles down Coleman Blvd on the map. Mount Pleasant is "the place to be" and our neighborhood is the closest historic neighborhood to Downtown Charleston. If you select our home, please appreciate the diversity of our area... it is steeped in Gullah History.


These directions are for planning purposes only. You may find that construction projects, traffic, weather, or other events may cause conditions to differ from the map results, and you should plan your route accordingly. You must obey all signs or notices regarding your route.
