According to the Town of Mount Pleasant Historical Commission, Haddrell’s Point extended along the waterfront from Shem Creek to Cove Inlet and was named for the early settler, George Haddrell. The land bordering Shem Creek became home to important industries including factories, canneries, as well as rice and sawmills which drew power from the tides of the creek. With ceremonial fanfare, President George Washington embarked from Haddrell’s Point to Charleston, during his Southern tour in 1791.

“This house is a gem in the heart of Mount Pleasant, offering the best views of our area,” said Lyles Geer, President and Broker-in-Charge of William Means Real Estate. “It is a reflection of the demand for property with natural views with a bit of seclusion and room to breathe while still being close to Charleston’s history and charm.”

Interior features include 12-foot ceilings, fine custom cypress cabinetry, a large gourmet kitchen, as well as reclaimed, wide-planked antique heart pine floors throughout. In addition to a pool facing Charleston Harbor, there is a 30-foot deepwater covered dock on Shem Creek. With views from virtually every position inside and outside this house, the property remains secluded from the street.
