This home was originally constructed on the Marine base at Parris Island. Moved to Pigeon Point Road in the 50's and then moved again in 2001 to it's present location on Laudonniere St. It was just 14' by 42' (a shotgun home) . We added two bedrooms & two baths. In 2008 we added a fireplace bay and a dinning bay in the living room and two walk-in closets in the bedrooms +made a coat closet in the hallway. It is now a full functioning home with cathedral ceilings and fans throughout, heart pine floor and even a claw-foot bathtub. Most people who walk in the front door for the first time fall in appreciate with it.
