About 1714 Middle Street

Rare opportunity to own a distinguished property of local and national historical significance! 1714 Middle Street is one of 26 former military resources that now make up the Sullivan's Island Historic District. The building was erected in 1902 as the Army's Post Exchange and Gymnasium for the soldiers and officers at Fort Moultrie. This is a 5 bedroom, 3.5 bath home with 7581 total square feet, including the old gymnasium. Much of the original architecture has been maintained or restored with historical acuity. The residence has also been updated to include modern conveniences and there is plenty of canvas here for the new owner to put their mark on.Extraordinary features of this home include its slate roof; original heart pine floors; grand columned front porch and foyer; pressed metal ceiling tiles; 18 ft ceilings in the renovated gymnasium/recreation hall (This amazing room has a large balcony with sitting area and ½ bath and offers endless possibilities with over 3000 sqft of open space  a grand dining hall for parties, weddings, corporate events; a ballroom; basketball/volleyball court; billiards room; art studio; etc); many areas of exposed brick; huge windows that offer abundant natural light; modern kitchen and bathrooms, both updated by current owners; private porch off the master bedroom; 2 other large porches; updated electrical and plumbing; 3 separate HVAC zones; a cistern that has been converted to a beautiful Koi pond; 3-zone sprinkler system and well; over a third acre street-to-street lot. Current owner has plans for a pool and a detached 2-car garage. The town of Sullivan's Island is extremely strict in its policies for additions, so this approval is highly relevant and a huge asset to the property! (town approval good through 08/22). The pool addition would take the place of the old attached garage which will open up a corridor for beautiful marsh views across Thompson Ave. The next owner of this amazing residence will walk its hallowed halls, play games/entertain/dance in its gym/gameroom/ballroom, and enjoy nature's distinctive sights and sounds from the Harbor  just as our service men and women did during their off time in WWI and WWII. A bit of history: Post exchanges were created by General Order starting in 1895 for the primary purpose of supplying troops with inexpensive food, clothing, and other necessities and creating a space for recreation and entertainment. When military operations at Fort Moultrie were ended in 1947, the Army's housing and supporting buildings were dispersed to the state, the town of Sullivan's Island, and private citizens. In 1954, the Post Exchange was sold and converted to a single family residence that is now 1714 Middle Street. Besides the historical significance of the building, it's location on Sullivan's Island is outstanding  just across the street from Charleston Harbor; walking distance to the beach, the lighthouse, Edgar Allen Poe Library, many historical military landmarks, and numerous shops and restaurants.
