                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: Cheryl Smith is originally from Chattanooga, TN and has lived in Beaufort since 1999. Mike Carver is originally from Athens, GA, and has lived in Beaufort since 2004. We both enjoy working on and updating Colony Gardens House for our guests. We also are honored when we have graduating families staying for USMC graduations.

                  Why the Owner Chose Beaufort:
                  Colony Gardens House sits beside the Intracoastal Waterway overlooking historic downtown Beaufort. The view from the backyard is one of the most beautiful in the area. You can sit or dine outside under magnificent live oaks while watching the sun set. There's always wildlife to observe in the marsh while enjoying the coastal breeze. Don't be surprise to see Bald Eagles, a variety of birds or raccoons with their young nesting in the trees.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  We mostly enjoy the privacy we have since one side of the house has an extra adjoining lot. The other side of the house has a natural fence border so that our only neighbor is hidden from view. We enjoy sitting out back watching Mother Nature while cooking up some of the best meals on the grill. If a storm brews, we enjoy sitting in the Carolina room and watch it come across the marsh. Of course, a good book is always a relaxing treat!
