By definition, in modern usage, a cottage is usually a modest, often cosy dwelling, typically in a rural or semi-rural location. On Sullivan’s Island, a cottage is a beach get away that maintains its unique, one of a kind island charm, in yesterdays simple form.
When you explore Real Estate on Sullivan’s Island, you will find a mix of homes; luxury, historical, dated, civil war officer quarters, beach shacks and beach cottages. Of all all it’s homes, I have always found a uniqueness in the cottages and the creativity that home owners bring to them. From the outside, you still find the historical character of earlier time beach architecture and design, but inside you will find renovations that bring you into modern times and luxury without all the space of some of the more modern homes. Every so often these type cottages hit the market offering a potential buyer the opportunity to own a turn key home and your own piece of the Sullivan’s Island Cottage charm.
