William Means Real Estate announces record sale on Sullivan’s Island

June 29, 2022

William Means Real Estate announced the sale of 1773 Atlantic Avenue to a buyer who also purchased the adjacent third of an acre, beachfront parcel at a combined record sales price of $10,875,000. This parcel is also the highest sales price for vacant land on Sullivan’s Island in the history of the Charleston Regional Multiple Listing Service (MLS). William Means Realtor, Alex Brener, represented the buyers who are lifelong beachgoers of Sullivan’s Island. The family intends to keep the vacant oceanfront parcel protected and treasured as an intact beach compound.

“The real estate market will likely continue to change, but the desire to live in the Charleston area is not going anywhere,” said Brener. “William Means clients are in search of the luxury lifestyle that comes with beachfront homes, and we were thrilled to deliver such a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”

The home at 1773 Atlantic Avenue has been renovated to include new wiring and plumbing, as well as kitchen and bath cabinets, fixtures, HVAC, windows, doors, and a new copper roof. In a great location, the island traffic is minimal, and the best restaurants are just a short distance away. The house has a private walkway over the dunes to the Atlantic Ocean which yield views from the front porch and large upper deck.

“Sullivan’s Island offers a true escape to both residents and visitors alike with its pristine beaches and strong sense of community,” said Drew Grossklaus, Sales Director and East Cooper Broker-in-Charge for William Means. “It is always a pleasure for William Means to assist clients in finding their slice of the Lowcountry, whether it be an oceanfront oasis, a historic home downtown, or somewhere in between.”

As one of the oldest real estate companies in Charleston and an exclusive affiliate of Christie’s International Real Estate, William Means Real Estate has sold more than $205 million in real estate so far this year.
