Published on April 19, 2023

The beautiful South Carolina coastline is a two-hundred-mile oceanfront paradise for visitors and permanent residents. You can experience everything from championship golf courses to the best in fine dining. White sandy beaches, warm waters, and a host of marine activities from fishing to boating are balanced by pristine saltwater marshes, protected by the state for the enjoyment of all.


Considered one of the finest areas to reside in the state and beyond, coastal South Carolina remains a top destination for retirees and families choosing to relocate. As a result, master-planned developments continue to be created providing families with incredible communities to call home.


Longer-term neighborhoods like Palmetto Bluff, Spring Island, and Oldfield Club are among the most sought-after properties, in large part due to their timeless elegance, architectural styles, and exceptional features in addition to twenty-four hour gated security.


Privacy goes hand in hand with a sense of community, and all three Lowcountry, real estate developments, are unique from each other. The biggest dilemma is how to choose!


Palmetto Bluff

Palmetto Bluff's waterfront homes are in high demand, now exceeding three million dollars. Small cottage-style dwellings are a favorite of homeowners as well, and homesites are also escalating in the purchase price to reflect the current demand. HOA and social club fees are considered reasonable and an excellent price for amenities received.


Activities abound and appeal to all types, from the full-service equestrian center to the eighteen-hole championship golf course designed by Jack Nicklaus. Outdoor enthusiasts will enjoy the many nature trails as well as the six thousand acre nature preserve located on the property along various water sports activities.
