Agent Remarks

Do you want to own a slice of Folly Beach history? The Totem Pole House is one of the most unique and historically significant homes on the island! Legend suggests that portions of the house and homesite date back to the civil war. In the 1950's the home was owned by a prominent Charleston antique dealer who installed a 16' Alaskan totem pole in the front yard which stands to this day. The current owners just successfully completed a significant reconstruction, ushering the home into the 21 st century while still maintaining the eclectic charm the property is renowned for. All new roof, HVAC, plumbing and appliances are icing on the cake. Whether you enjoy a short, one block walk to the beach or loungingall day in the swimming pool, this home has something for everyone. A well equipped kitchen is every chef's dream. The open concept allows for cooking and entertaining at the same time. The house can accommodate ten guests comfortably in 2,200 sq. ft. of splendor. Two living areas and a second floor porch provide ample entertaining space. You will find 4 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms (one bed/bath being the master suite) on the top floor and a powder room on the ground floor. A spacious outdoor shower is loved by young and old alike. The house is situated on a large street to street lot located between E Ashley Ave & E Cooper Ave. Ample parking for four to five cars in a driveway which sits astride a large, climate controlled storage shed for your bikes, golf cart and beach equipment. A fenced in yard adds to the appeal. Close enough to town to walk but yet far enough to enjoy the tranquility. One block from the town park which includes a basketball court, tennis court and dog park. The perfect location! If you're looking for an income producing property, 2020 was a record year and 2021 is looking even more promising, with projected income exceeding six figures.
