Location: Sullivan's Island, S.C.
The Skinny: Built in 1906 as a recreation hall for the 237-year-old Fort Moultrie, this columned structure has since served as offices for the fort's engineering staff and, now, as a private home. Listed for $1.5M, this Sullivan's Island home boasts five bedrooms, five bathrooms, and plenty of quirky features from the building's public past, most notably the 3,100-square-foot former gymnasium and social hall that now serves as an extremely oversized living room. The rest of the interior, shoehorned as it is into a structure not intended as a private home, suffers from low ceilings and small windows. For those happy with the property as-is, it is also available for rent at $4,500 a month.
