Nothing describes quintessential Charleston life like the photograph below (if you replace the cat with a dog…no offense cat lovers, but a dog would be so much more fitting to lounge on this porch):

Cat lounging in the shadeWhen the owners built this home in the mid 1990’s, they had one thought in mind – owning a million dollar view. And their investment paid off, because right now…they literally own a million dollar view…this home is currently on the market for $945,000. And here is what you get for that pretty little penny.Amazing Charleston PorchHome with waterfront viewDock on a tidal creek

Is that the Sullivans Island light house I see in the distance? I believe it is…(oh how the wide angle lens distorts the view…the photo below is the ACTUAL view)

Waterfront home for sale in Awendaw SC
Even on a cloudy day like this one, this traditional farm house boasts a front porch that calls for no special decor – the view itself is the adornment. And it is perfect.

Built on over 300 acres of sprawling marsh countryside, the surrounding land might relax the porch more than the porch relaxes its dwellers! It’s also easy to travel off the porch and pal around in the canoe, take a dip in the pool, or crank the speed boat for a sunset cruise from the deep water jet pier. Talk about easy access to life al fresco. 🙂

Charleston Waterfront Porch

This bright and bold screened-in porch exemplifies the character of Folly Beach and the fun-loving, laid back personalities of the couple who own this gem. It overlooks the Sunset Cay Marina on the far western tip of Folly Beach, SC and the frequenters of this space commonly watch mother dolphins raise their young in the small marina, tucked away from the dangers of the open ocean. It is the heart of the entire property – and because of it, the soul of this home is relaxed.

To keep the home’s vital organ beating at full strength, it boasts a Screen-Tight 800 Porch Screening system and removable vinyl shutters. A smart investment. Like eating heart healthy Cheerios…Honey Nut Cheerios…mmm

I digress.
