“Folly Reclaimed” is a soulful 2 bedroom/2 full bath home originally constructed in 1933 and christened “Murmar”. If this home could talk you would not believe it’s adventures. Once a front beach home overlooking the tranquil waves of Folly Beach, this original Folly home faced the possibility of being removed, in order to build a larger home that better suited the owners. Luckily a couple with deep roots in the community knew of the charm and beauty this home possessed and with great planning and patience, were able to move the home to it’s present location. Painstakingly they renovated and updated it to it’s former glory and then some!
This home tastefully fuses timeless 1930’s beauty with modern conveniences. Elevated to rest among the trees, guests are provided a shaded retreat on the 300 square foot screened in porch, comfortably enjoying outdoor living and ambience. Walking through the front door you are greeted with a cheerful open living space which includes a fully equipped kitchen, dining area and cozy living room. Big things come in small packages and this home is no exception. The kitchen provides you with all you need to whip up a gourmet meal. Stainless steel appliances. Full size refrigerator/freezer. Electric range and oven. Full capacity dishwasher. While our wonderful restaurants are just steps away….it’s always nice to be able to create your own specialties with local fresh seafood from Crosby’s Seafood along with fresh local produce from various farmer’s markets in the area. If it’s in season then it’s available.
The dining room is directly off the kitchen and is furnished with a spacious table for four. Enjoy meals, conversation or your favorite game while embraced in the warmth and beauty of the lovingly restored, original tongue and groove beadboard walls and ceilings. Stripped down to it’s original finish where possible, the beadboard escorts you throughout the home, whispering secrets of simpler times. Pine floors in the living room complete the inviting space. A wonderful spot to curl up and read a book or watch a program on the flat screen TV.
Walking down the hallway you feel as if you are taking a journey back in time. Bedroom #1 greets you on the left with a fully prepared full size bed. Bedroom #1 is furnished with an antique armoire for storage and a precious desk for those who might need a small private space to work or catch up on emails. Both beds in the home are prepared with 100% cotton sheets. Just slightly down the hall you will find a full sized bathroom with a shower/tub combo. Guests are provided with 2 bath towels, 1 hand towel and 2 wash clothes per person. Bedroom # 2 functions as the master bedroom and has a queen bed. As you will find throughout this home, this bedroom is full of warmth and charm, while also being bright and inviting. There is a full bath located directly across from this bedroom and if needed there is a hall door that can separate this bedroom and bathroom from the rest of the home. This bathroom has a full size stand up shower.
There is plenty of off street parking for four cars if needed. The home has a small, private fenced in yard that can securely contain furry family members while offering shade and comfort along with some much needed off-leash time.
Wonderful home for two couples, a small gathering of close friends or family, a small family or just an individual needing some salty breezes. This is a single family home and is not a shared space. Lots of shade and privacy while also being located close to the restaurants and shops. Easy walk over to the beach or rent a golf cart from Charleston Golf Cart Rentals or beach cruisers from Cool Breeze Bike Rentals.
