Historical home on Sullivans Island, SC for sale can be yours!
Stunning family home excellent for children of all ages!! Formerly the Recreation Hall and Post Exchange for Fort Moultrie, this property has been turned into one of the most incredible family homes in all of Charleston where you can experience downtown style living but be at the beach! Situated in a great location between the lighthouse and Fort Moultrie, in the charming Sullivan's Island Historic District, this property is just a short walk to the beach, library, post office, churches, tennis courts, the boat landing, restaurants, open space, 2 parks, and it is a very short walk or bike ride to the school! The house has been completely renovated with the kitchen and all bathrooms being brand new and very high-end, and all of the mechanicals have been reworked so that this is basically
