Homes for Sale on Sullivan’s Island

Real Estate Broker/Owner with C21 The Harrelson Group / C21 Charleston Expert Advisors

Seven nautical miles from Charleston, the natural beauty of Sullivan’s Island blends large old beach houses and elegant modern mansions in a peaceful retreat far from the hustle and bustle of the big city. So far removed from city life, the Island’s commercial district consists of an array of restaurants, a post office, a fitness center, and a few other businesses spread out over a few blocks.

As with all of the Charleston area, Sullivan’s Island has a colorful history. Captain Florence O’Sullivan, for whom the Island was named, was captain of one of the first ships to bring settlers to Charleston in 1670. He later became the Island’s lighthouse keeper. For his service, he was given the Island and a large part of neighboring Mount Pleasant. In 1776, Colonel William Moultrie and the Colonial militia fought the British in a fort that was still under construction. The fort which bore his name closed in the 1940s, but not before Edgar Allen Poe served there in1827 and 1828. The fort was the setting for several of his writings.

The homes here are large, private, and expensive. Most are in the 2 to 4 million dollar range. These estates are on large lots and often have luxurious swimming pools with elegant outdoor cooking and entertaining areas.
