What’s the most talked-about piece of property in Charleston right now? The Hurricane House. Or, as its listing agent refers to it, the Eye of the Storm house. Or as locals have dubbed it, the Star Wars House. Orrrr, as Southern Charm’s resident real estate broker Cameran Eubanks has been known to call it: The Dome House.
Call it whatever you want, as long you call Cameran if you’re interested in buying it! On the market since summer, the three-bedroom, five-bathroom property has been covered by dozens of media outlets for its beautiful (and sturdy) architecture. Cameran has shown the property a few times and is “obsessed.”

“One of the most iconic homes in Charleston is for sale,” Cameran wrote on Instagram in June. “The Eye Of the Storm” house is a concrete and steel dome residence on the front beach of Sullivan’s Island. Estimated to weigh 650 TONS! This futuristic design was constructed to withstand a category 4 hurricane and give owners total peace of mind. The views from almost 900 sqft of deck space are incredible. I have always called it the ‘Star Wars’ House. Can’t believe it’s finally for sale. Message me if you want to know more. This is a very special piece of property. $4.9 mil.”
And given that Hurricane Florence is headed right for the Carolinas, Cameran urged everyone to once again consider purchasing the home on Instagram this week — complete with a beautiful video shot by drone! “Well looks like we might be getting a hurricane next week so what a perfect time to buy the Hurricane House,” Cameran wrote. “I’m obsessed with this property and would love to sell it to you or your rich Uncle!”
Built in 1989 after the owners' original home was destroyed by Hurricane Hugo, the Eye of the Storm is a concrete dome designed to withstand severe storms. Check out the property below!
With no roof, the 3,500-square-foot dome-shaped home is meant to be a bunker during a hurricane.
The .5-acre property is nestled behind a vegetative barrier on the Northeastern tail of Sullivan's Island … but the beach is still only 230 feet away!
The upper floors are hung from the home’s concrete shell, creating an open-concept main floor with direct sightlines upstairs (because structural supports weren’t necessary!).
The three-bedroom, five-bathroom home features a brand-new kitchen in beachy, driftwood-colored hues.
The master bedroom has direct views of the dunes and ocean.
The property’s Great Deck is perfect for alfresco dinner parties.
