The historic house has a brick first story, with a private side porch overlooking the yard, accessed by an intricate forged iron gate. The Totem Pole House boasts four large bedrooms and3.5 baths. The kitchen features beautiful exposed local brick, while other areas of the house have customshiplap and wainscoting. There is historic beadboard and Chinese Chippendale-balustrades leading to the second story. The bedrooms have polished pine floorsand gallery doors that open onto the second story porches. In addition to interior upgrades like tiled showers and custom woodwork, the recent renovations also include A newer roof, HVAC, plumbing upgrades, updated appliances, making 506 East Ashley a perfect combination of modern comfort and fun historical character, with an open plan on the first floor perfect for entertaining, and private and quiet bedrooms upstairs to catch ocean breezes. The large property has ample off-street parking, a spacious fenced in backyard with in-ground pool and seating area, and a climate-controlled shed. In addition, 506 East Ashley makes for the perfect 2nd home or vacation rental due to its multiple entertaining spaces and separation of bedrooms upstairs. The lot is a full street to street lot with plenty of parking and the perfect location next to the dog park, Pirates Cove playground, and tennis courts. Famous local antiques dealer Herman Schindler bought the house in 1940 as his residence, while running the popular Antique Trading Post shop at 200 King Street in Charleston. Schindler erected the landmark sixteen-foot-tall Alaskan totem pole in the yard during the 1950s. The pole, which faces the Atlantic Ocean and has survived many hurricanes along with the house, was installed by Schindler to ward off evil spirits. He owned the house until 1983. Folly Beach is the quintessential Lowcountry beach community, with easy access to James Island and downtown Charleston. Its early history includes shipwrecks, Civil War heritage, ties to the famous opera Porgy and Bess (George Gershwin stayed on the island in 1934), and dances on Folly's Pier and Pavilion in the 1950s. While attracting nearly a million visitors a year, Folly retains its kitsch character with beautiful beachfronts, a popular boardwalk, and adjacent seafood restaurants and local bars. Home can be sold furnished with an acceptable offer.
