Property description

You'll fall in love with Fripp Island just like we did when we brought our young children to our family's annual beach vacation years ago. The rich smell of the salt water marsh and the cloudless blue sky...bare feet and swimsuits are the dress of the day. Evenings filled with card games and laughter...warm summer nights on the back porch. The children collapse into bed each night, exhausted from hours of bike riding, swimming and romping in the waves.

The Fripp House is a warm and inviting 6 bedroom, 5 1/2 bath Southern Low Country home. Relax with a spectacular view of the beautiful salt marsh and the privacy of a large corner lot filled with live oaks and palms. You'll love the quiet setting with a 5 minute walk to the beach or a 2 minute drive in one of our two golf carts. There is nothing quite like a warm summer evening sitting on one of the two front porches or screened back porch enjoying a glass of wine and relaxing to the sound of the high tide.

Main Floor:
2 Large master bedroom suites each with a king bed, master bath with travertine floors, plenty of closet space and 42' wall mounted HDTV.

Laundry room and powder room just off kitchen. Enjoy two seated dining tables in the large family area. The main floor has large front and back covered porches with multiple seating areas.

You'll find nature centers on Fripp and nearby Hunting Island for activities on the both the beach and marsh.

Two championship golf courses are located on Fripp Island - Ocean Creek Golf Course designed by Davis Love, III has won design honors from golf industry magazines.

Splash in one of the 5 Fripp pools or enjoy a quiet swim in the adult pool with a refreshing drink from The Sand Bar.

Camp Fripp is a sensational place for the kids to enjoy during the day with activities from Dinosaur Camps to shelling and nature trips.

We know you'll appreciate the special allure of Fripp Island - a place of quiet total comfort. Days spent by the water seem to last longer. Food tastes better. Sleep comes easier - life is simple.

We love the South Carolina low country coast because it isn't just a location, it's a way of life. We hope you too will enjoy the magic of Fripp Island and THE FRIPP HOUSE and that you'll bring your family back year after year making memories that last a lifetime.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We are a large family - We have been a part of Fripp for years. When we decided to build a house at Fripp, we knew it had to be large enough for big families. We love every part of this island. See our website above.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
Fripp Island is a special island in the LowCountry. It has a special allure. Families feel safe here, wildlife is abundant, the beach is sandy and your children can ride their bikes everywhere! Not only will you love this island, you will want to come back year after year.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home is on a large one acre corner lot with a beautiful view of the marsh. It is a very private lot with several deer families that live in our wooded space. We feed the deer out of our hands! Across the street is the inlet with a fishing pier/dock. Our kids love to go fishing there ... one day we caught a sting ray! We are located ~ right off Tarpon onto Bonito, 1st right off Bonito onto Wahoo, at end of road on left, corner lot.
