Fripp Island is located next to Hunting Island State Park with a lighthouse, nature paths, fishing pier, beach, and campgrounds.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: I am a retired state employee who has lived in Columbia, SC since 1970. My wife has taught elementary school for 41 years. I currently sell real estate with Exit, Real Estate Solutions in Columbia, SC. We have been coming to Fripp Island since 1974 and purchased a condo in 1991. The condo was sold in 1999 so we could purchase this marsh front home. Our membership to Fripp Island resort allows our guest to purchase amenity cards so they can have access to the island pools, golf courses, tennis courts, marina, and other amenities offered throughout the island.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
Beaufort is located in the lowcountry of SC and has been featured in numerous films such as Forest Gump, Prince of Tides, The Water is Wide, The Great Santini, Jungle Book, and The Big Chill. Fripp Island is a private, secure resort with 3 miles of beach, 2 golf courses, bike paths, marina access, pools, and tennis center. I have family in Beaufort and plan to eventually move and retire to Fripp Island.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Fripp Island is located next to Hunting Island State Park featuring a lighthouse, beach, and fishing bridge. The town of Beaufort is near Charleston, Hilton Head, SC, and Savannah, Ga. Fripp Island is a wildlife preserve where passive viewing of the animals is a favorite pasttime. Animals that you are likely to see include aligators, deer, raccoons, otters, blue herons, brown pelicans, and many other animals.
