Extremely rare opportunity has arrived to own a large, high bluff, deep water estate on the Okatie River in Beaufort County, SC. Facing due east on a high bluff with 180 degree long views of the river, this remarkable legacy estate is an unparalleled regional offering in terms of its size, quaint location, mature tree canopy and deep water. This spacious and private 7.77 acre property is graced with centuries old live oaks, mammoth pines, magnolias and an array of other specimen trees that canopy over a wonderful mosaic of secret gardens. The quaint 1940 river cottage is enveloped by gardens filled with heirloom variety Camellias, Sasanquas, Wisteria and Azaleas, each woven into the landscape of a pristine maritime forest — all a labor of love by a master gardener decades ago. Ample space in the cottage provides over 1600 square feet of living space including 3 bedrooms and 2 baths, patiently waiting on the next steward to bring it back to full charm.
The prevailing southeastern ocean breezes and quiet location hardly suggest that you’re only 15 minutes from both Beaufort to the north, Bluffton to the south, and 20 minutes from interstate 95 to the west. The +/- 50 yard deep water dock complete with a pier, boat lift, and floating dock provide expedient and unobstructed access via short boat ride to the Atlantic Ocean.
The quaint waterfront neighborhood is private and long established with its stunning high and wide bluff, views of Pinckney Point protected in perpetuity from development and wonderful ocean breezes that sweep across the bluff and on to the porch, captivating all that come to visit.
