2 Cusabo Island, Folly Beach, SC

In this fast-paced world, who doesn't need a retreat on a private island with 49.87 acres of your own? One of the best parts about it? Its just a 7 minute boat ride from Folly Beach landing to ''Cusabo Island!'' You can be in your own little world yet so close to everyday conveniences! This is a very rare opportunity to be a part of a semi-private island just off of the South end of Folly Beach, with views of the Atlantic, Folly Beach, Folly Inlet, Mom Salley Creek, and Bird Key. This parcel features 7.04 acres of highland, and 42.83 acres of marsh. This property includes a deepwater dock with 40' floater with 12-15'' at low tide. It is easily accessible from Folly Beach landing or the private Mariners Cay Marina.The home is a two-story, elevated cottage with inverted floor plan designed by renowned Charleston architect,Steve Herlong of Herlong Architects, anbuilt by Conner Construction. It has a classic cedar shake exterior along with a quintessential lowcountry metal roof. The interior has custom cypress shiplap walls throughout as well as pine ceilings. There are built-in beds and trundles as well as bunk beds with detail such as bamboo railings. It is rustic, yet refined and sophisticated with French doors. You can find fun details such as boat cleat hardware on interior doors as well as a classic old boat oar as handrail for interior staircase. The bedrooms are on the first floor so that the main living area and "kitchen" are on the second floor to maximize your views from inside. That is the beauty of an inverted floor plan anytime there is a view like this. In the upstairs living area and kitchen, the cathedral ceiling with beams gives an added sense of space. The kitchen island is stained wood and accommodates bar stools for dining. There are very few properties on the east coast that have this type of view. From the front of the home, you overlook Mom Salley creek and marsh, while from the back of the home you see the ocean. You would never know that there is civilization just minutes away. There are two screened porches, one for each floor, as well as a widow's watch on top to take in the 360 degree views. The home is wired to run off of battery bank or fixed power. There is a gas line available if you were to supply propane. There is a solar panel on the roof as well. This home is sold furnished with a list of personal exclusions. This would make an excellent private retreat just off of America's #1 city, but would also make a really cool AirBNB property, or an exclusive club with a group of members. The property also includes "Little Bo" Island. This property has been featured in Charleston Magazine and once you see it, you will understand why!!! Transportation by boat is available by the listing agents.
