With the summer in full swing here in Charleston, we revisit our series on our favorite Beach retreats. Todays topic, a real favorite for visitors and locals alike : Isle of Palms!
As our region continues to grow at a record pace, the hot summer heat is attracting more and more people to the sandy shores around the barrier islands of the South Carolina coast. From March until late September, the Charleston area beaches are a top destination for people from around the region, and increasingly, around the country and the world.
The picturesque scenery of Isle of Palms is no exception and it is rapidly becoming the most popular location to feel the sand between your toes. While other area beaches have their own unique cultures and enticing amenities, Isle of Palms continues to be a major beach destination for the entire Southeast. Homes on the Isle of Palms range in values and many homes off the front beach can be obtained with even the most modest of budgets. This fabulous “tree-house” style home offers a truly unique island lifestyle on a very private lot.
Spanning just over 4.4 miles, Isle of Palms is a top resort destination featuring beautiful beachfront homes, cute and upscale bungalows, and wonderful shops, restaurants, and bars. The luxury gated community of Wild Dunes is on the north end of the island, and features two world class golf courses designed by Tom Fazio.
The Island experienced a resurgence in the past 25 with improved access directly from Mount Pleasant via the Isle of Palms Connector and many residents improving their homes, or tearing down and building modern mansions. Today, the island hosts countless visitors who come back year after year to experience the relaxed sophisticated lifestyle it offers. Because the island allows nightly rentals, there is always a buzz of activity in the shops, restaurants and bars, and it makes for a wonderful lifestyle for all.
One of the hidden Gems of Isle Of Palms is the “Back Beach” or deepwater row of homes and docks which overlook the Intracoastal Waterway. These beautiful properties offer not only an easy walk to the beach, but also the ease of direct deep water access to enjoy the miles of coastline and waterways in your own vessel! There is nothing like an impressive infinity pool overlooking the marsh and waterway, and this fabulous listing at 2401 Waterway Boulevard gives you all of this and more. With 6 bedrooms and 7 full baths, magnificent main level master, custom kitchen, and charming pool cabana, this home anticipates every need.
