For your consideration: a half-mile view across a tidal river and wildlife-packed salt marsh to a 3-mile-long shoreline of pines, live oaks and moss. There, in the distance, you seldom see lights now and will never see many. Bald eagles nest in a tall pine just downriver. To see a communications tower, you must walk down a 200-foot dock and look upriver a good mile.
Enter the 3.3-acre property across a short bridge and you feel as if you’re on a peninsula. The May River and a tidal creek form half the property lines, and thickets of woods buffer the rest. Most of the property is 10 feet or more above high tide, but the river is always near, rising and falling to the rhythms of the moon.
Beyond the bridge, a large circle of gravel and shell driveway leads through tall pines and oaks to a main house with 2,400 square feet of heated and cooled space, an attached carport and a long, enclosed porch that offers a million-dollar view. A dozen yards from the carport sits a two-story “guest” house of 1,600 heated/cooled square feet, also with a waterside porch and grand view. Both houses have clearstory upstairs, facing the river and distant shoreline of maritime forest, barely interrupted by the large, “family compound” lots at exclusive Palmetto Bluff. Both houses are established in the managed – but not overly manicured – landscape, carefully maintained and adjusted to the Lowcountry elements. WiFi Internet blankets the houses and yard.
It’s a civilized way to live among nature’s best.
