In June of 1776, the battle of Sullivan's Island became the first Patriot victory of the Revolutionary War. To this day huge old homes that served as officer's quarters until mid-century still stand as private family residences. Since its incorporation residential lots were required to have a minimum of ½ acre and the same is true today. There are no hotels, and only two multi-family housing buildings on Sullivan's Island, it’s a residential community, tightly integrated with Charleston history. This historic barrier island north of Charleston Harbor offers miles of public beach. A small village center hosts a popular eating district as restaurants and pubs line two blocks of Middle Street.
Just 15 minutes from downtown Charleston, it has become a year-round residence to area professionals and business owners. Children of Sullivan's Island attended one of four (4) highly rated Mt. Pleasant schools that include one (1) High School, one (1) Middle Schools, and two (2) Elementary Schools. Sullivan's Island offers a wide range of historic and modest homes to new elegant custom builds and finally multimillion dollar residences overlooking the ocean and scenic Charleston harbor.
