Famous for epic sunrises, quiet beaches, and sleepy residential streets, Sullivan's Island is a place like no other. Adjacent to Isle Palms, this island stands at the entrance to Charleston Harbor. Only around 1,800 residents call this unique place their home. Its prime location and beautiful surroundings mean Sullivan's Island real estate is highly sought after, with prices that reflect this competitiveness.
When residents want to gather with friends for a good meal, they head to one of a handful of charming mom-and-pop eateries along Middle Street. This main thoroughfare cuts through the heart of the Sullivan's Island Historic District, home to 36 structures of historical significance, mostly built between 1870 and 1950. Following Middle Street west will take you past old military relics, such as Fort Moultrie, Mugdock Castle, and Battery Jasper.
In general, houses for sale on Sullivan's Island are extravagantly appointed, with price tags to match. Even fairly modest houses will cost a pretty penny, though residents would no doubt say that living the island life is worth any price.
