This original Pawley’s Island home was built in the mid-1800s and is filled with unmatched historical character and charm. The property is ocean and creek front, and is located in the quieter, historical district on the southern portion of the island. The layout involves a main house and a guest house. There are also two historical servant houses on the property which may not be entered.
A large, stunning porch wraps approximately 3/4 of main house. Part of the porch connects the main house to the guest house for easy access. There is a shaded side yard by the porch filled with live oaks where children love to hang their Eno-style hammocks. The side yard has a view of the creek coupled with sounds of the ocean. There is a covered look out on the beach side of the property with a small table and bench seating that easily seats 10-12 people. There is a covered dock on the creek with bench seating that can easily seat 12-14 people.
The main house and guest house have a total of 6 bedrooms, 2 full baths, 2 half baths, 3 water closets, and 4 bedroom sinks. There is also an open outdoor shower with hot and cold water. There are two large eating areas. One eating area is on the “breezeway” which is next to the kitchen (seats 6-10). The large “breezeway” room was added to the house long ago to connect the once separate kitchen to the main house. The second eating area is a formal dining room (seats 12-14). The dining room table doubles as a ping pong table which leads to great entertainment for all. There is also a small breakfast table located in the fully-equipped kitchen (seats 3-4). There is a side-by-side refrigerator/freezer in the kitchen with an ice maker. There is an additional full-size refrigerator and an additional work sink located in the workroom, which is next to the kitchen.
The main house and guest house are heated and air conditioned. They are also equipped with cable, wi-fi, and a ground-line phone.
