People have been coming to historic Beaufort and the South Carolina sea islands for centuries. It has attracted historians, poets, artists, writers, actors, producers, musicians, vacationers, military and a host of others. In some mysterious way the Beaufort lowcountry seems to have a soul that is partly expressed in its ancient land and sea. Literally hundreds of islands with century old live oaks are surrounded by the ever-present salt water that ebbs and flows with each tide. Ocean breezes, salt-water marshes, creeks and rivers constantly change with each cycle and the smell of salt air is ever present.
The lowcountry is something to be experienced when you visit and when you leave it may have lingering consequences. When you decide to live here, the lowcountry becomes something more....it becomes a choice about your quality of life. It's daily living in an environment that is beyond description and can only be experienced. We chose to live here and most importantly we understand why others chose to as well. It's about the quality of life.
It is our sincere hope that you will contact us today to give us the opportunity to serve you in finding the lowcountry home that is right for you! It's your choice!
"I grew up slowly beside the tides and marshes of Colleton; my arms were tawny and strong from working long days on the shrimp boat in the blazing South Carolina heat...I was born and raised on a Carolina sea island and I carried the sunshine of the low country, inked in dark gold, on my back and shoulders. As a boy I was happy above the channels, navigating a small boat between the sandbars with their quiet nation of oysters exposed on the brown flats at the low watermark. I knew every shrimper by name, and they knew me and sounded their horns when they passed me fishing in the river." Excerpt from The Prince of Tides, Pat Conroy
