Downtown luxury Realty Company has record breaking sale on Sullivans Island
Daniel Ravenel Sotheby’s International Realty announces a record-breaking transaction last week for an ocean front property on Sullivans Island. Located at 2619 Bayonne Street, the home built in 2018 by Daly Sawyer Construction sold for $7.35 million. This sets a record for the highest price ever paid for an MLS sale on Sullivans Island. According to Ruthie Ravenel, who brokered the transaction, “As a specialist on Sullivan’s Island, I have found that this particular sub-market remains strong despite the hint of a region wide market normalization. Sullivan’s Island remains a highly desirable destination and is somewhat insulated from the greater CHARLESTON market. Furthermore, having personally represented a number of top sales this year I have seen that the ultra-high end luxury property continues to fare very well both on the beaches and downtown. Properties with modern layouts and finishes that are in pristine condition, and in the very best locations, continue to fetch a premium despite overall market trends.”
Daniel Ravenel Sotheby’s International Realty currently hold the MLS records for the highest price ever paid for a downtown property after the 2015 sale of 32 South Battery for $7.717 million, the highest price paid for a Kiawah Island property after the 2017 sale of 85 Blue Heron Pond Road for $15.25 million and the highest price paid for an Isle of Palms property after the 2017 sale of 120 Ocean Blvd for $6.4 million.

The properties include historic mixed-use properties with retail and residential units, four parcels with 151 parking stalls and the former home of women’s clothing store, Anne’s.
