Once through the private gates, as you wind your way through the dense pine forest and over the salt marsh bridge, you will marvel at the quiet beauty of coastal South Carolina's Low Country. Watch for snowy egrets, great blue herons, alligators and turtles on the creek banks, ultimately arriving at our beachfront home. Settle into our large, comfortable house. Step out onto the screened-in porch and enjoy the cool breezes as you take in the ever-captivating view of the Atlantic Ocean. Grab your towel and raid our 'beach-toy' closet for buckets to collect shells, a raft or boogie board, and lots of playthings for the kids. After a relaxing swim and a dig in the sand, take a walk South down the beach to the end of the houses, and into the Baruch Foundation's Hobcaw Barony. Undeveloped and preserved for perpetuity, witness this unparalleled sanctuary used by Clemson, USC, and other institutions for important ecological research In the evening, take advantage of our Beach Club Membership privileges: elegant dining with a spectacular view at the Beach Club; casual dining at the Blue Heron Beach grill; or meet new friends at the fabulous beachfront Cabana Bar. You are also welcome to lounge and swim at the sparkling Beach Club pool. DeBordieu Colony also offers 10 courts at the Tennis Club, and a magnificent 18-hole Golf course, designed by Pete Dye. Beyond our gates, excellent dining and shopping are minutes away in Pawley's Island. Head into the historic Port of Georgetown and visit the lovely waterfront boardwalk. Only 1 hour drive from DeBordieu is the enchanting city of Charleston, SC. Don't miss the rich culture and history of this genteel and fascinating city. Or head north to the excitement of Myrtle Beach where you'll find amusement rides, water parks, live entertainment theaters, restaurants, shopping and over 100 championship golf courses. Between Charleston and Myrtle Beach lie an array of destinations including Huntingdon Beach Park, the impeccable sculpture gardens at Brookgreen Gardens, quiet fishing villages and stunning Plantation Tours. After all of your adventure in the Lowcountry, wend your way back through the forest and look for wildlife as you return to the splendid isolation of the Lemmon House at DeBordieu Colony, SC. We're so happy to share this experience with you! Enjoy, The Lemmon Family.

Year Purchased: 1970
About the owner: Sisters Jane and Sally manage the Lemmon Family House.
Why the Owner Chose Georgetown: Born & raised in rural South Carolina, our father moved to Philadelphia to attend medical school and later developed a successful surgical practice. Every summer Dad returned to SC with his growing family to vacation on the beach on the Grand Strand. In 1970, he purchased a beachfront lot as a charter member of DeBordieu Colony when the only residents for miles in any direction were pelicans, osprey, wild boar, deer, alligators and the rest of the natives of the unique coastal and estuary ecosystems of the Lowcountry. Today there are human neighbors as well, but DeBordieu is devoted to preserving hundreds of undeveloped acres as important habitat for SC wildlife.
