Once the site of a prosperous 18th-century plantation, this beautiful 870-acre property in the Sea Islands region of coastal South Carolina has been transformed into an exclusive golf community that blends the privacy and seclusion of gated living with an impressive selection of country club amenities.
Property owners gain privileged access to two private 18-hole golf courses designed by Tom Fazio and Arthur Hills, plus a full-service tennis club, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a spacious fitness center, a grand antebellum-style clubhouse and a deep-water marina with access to the Intracoastal Waterway and the Atlantic Ocean.
A limited number of lots are available for purchase, or buyers can choose from an extensive selection of finely crafted single-family homes, patio homes and low-maintenance villas. All properties come with water or golf course views, and every home combines high-quality craftsmanship with the finest interior fittings and design elements.
The community is just six miles from the historic seaport of Beaufort - convenient to shops, restaurants and transportation, yet immersed in a timeless world of lush salt marshes, tall pines, ancient oak trees and historic plantation house ruins that evoke the rich history of this island getaway.
