The Charleston Home


Art on the Beach- Sullivans Island Recap

If you love shiplap, this is the home tour for you.

Y’all this event was like my dream come true. What’s a better way to spend a Sunday than touring beautiful oceanfront homes?

Art on the Beach is an event benefiting Charleston Pro Bono— they provide free legal assistance for low income clients in the Charleston area. This year there were 7 homes on the tour (one was a 4 unit condominium building), at least one artist in each one, as well as a local chef in the kitchen whipping up treats for visitors. This was all included in the $45 ticket, and worth every penny! Follow their Instagram account to stay tuned for next year’s date.

The first stop was 3115 Ion Ave. Two words: infinity pool.

The deck off this home was FABULOUS. You could see the ocean from the deck and pool.

There was a 3rd story deck where the ocean was even more visible— over a 180 degree view! #goals.

Great start.

“Eye of the Storm”, an iconic Charleston property was number 4 on the tour. I was thrilled to see this one in person. It’s currently for sale and to be honest I don’t think the photos in MLS do it justice. The fact that it’s round probably makes it difficult for a photographer, but this home was actually really beautiful. You should see the tub in the master bedroom!

OK, 2619 Bayonne St was by far my favorite. With a $7.74 million list price (It’s for sale, too) you can imagine how absolutely freakin’ perfect it could be. Literally perfect. I wouldn’t change a dang thing. There was so much beautiful statement tile in this house which was one of my favorite parts of it. But I could literally go on and on about how stunning this house was. The headline photo of this blog post is the pool at this home. The home was designed by Beau Clowney, one of my favorite Charleston architects. Check out the master bathroom shower. I can’t even handle it!!

The last home on the tour had just about 360 degree views. Off the front was an ocean view and off the back was the intracoastal. Another stunner. I didn’t get any good photos but this one happens to be for sale as well (most of them on the tour were) so check out the listing for better photos of the view. This one had a ton of shiplap, including the ceilings— um yes plz.

I always feel weird taking photos of artists’ art (copyright concerns etc) so I couldn’t get many photos of the artists and art showcased but I already know and love most of them and they were all fabulous. You can see the full list of them here. Definitely worth checking them out. A couple of my favorites: Danielle Cather Cohen, Gallavantor, Tamara Brown Art.
