Beaufort house description

DELIGHT IN AN UNSURPASSED LOWCOUNTRY HOLIDAY.
*** Treasure. Savor. Play. Rest. Enjoy.***

You are cordially invited to enjoy a taste of history and charm in the CravenHouse experience. We are delighted to share our home and the beauty that is Beaufort .

Falling in love with Beaufort is something few visitors can resist. We fell under its spell during a Christmas visit and as time went on we had to surrender.

Our home is an expression of the south of the past and yet abides in the present, not conforming, but co-existing with today. The original fireplace mantle and chandeliers live next to the brand new kitchen with its expansive cabinetry and stainless steel appliances. The extraordinary French doors in the front parlor open to a porch immaculately restored to its original design. Custom birch paneling in the den compliment state of the art HDTV & Wi-FI Internet.

Walking upstairs is an experience all its own as one steps onto a staircase ornamented with elaborate original woodwork. Classic iron beds in all three bedrooms upstairs are complimented with brand new Sealy Posturpedic mattresses promising a restful night's sleep after a day of exploring Beaufort . Antique furniture is beautiful and charms every room.

The master bedroom and bath open onto the second story porch, delighting ones senses with the soft touch of sea breezes, the sounds of horse and carriage ride tours passing by, the ringing of church bells dating back to 1720 and the sight of Spanish moss dripping from 300 year old oak trees.

Plantation rockers and beautiful wicker furniture are waiting on both the upstairs porch and screened in porch downstairs as you relax and perhaps think back to a day of walking through this historic neighborhood with its antebellum mansions, ancient churches and glimpses of history until now only read about in books.
Beaufort recently celebrated its 300th birthday. The city’s history is replete with tales of greatness. Once one of the most affluent counties in the United States, Beaufort boasts anecdotes of plantations, cargo and pirate ships as well as tales of occupation by union forces. The tapestry of the town is abundant with the past. Stories from each neighborhood with unique journeys all their own are waiting for you.

No need for a car! Leave your auto in our driveway. Steps away is beautiful downtown Beaufort's waterfront park, with its marina, shopping, dining and breathtaking scenery of the inter-coastal waterway. Daily tours are offered, including water tours, walking tours, and horse drawn carriages. Feeling brave? The nightly “ghost tour” will offer an alternative glimpse into this amazing town.

                  Year Purchased: 2011

                  Why Beaufort:
                  The Point neighborhood (also known as the Old Point) is home to some of Beaufort's largest, oldest, and most expensive homes. This portion of downtown does not follow the major street grid and was once an area where a timber mill operated. Homes in this area range from the impressive mansions that overlook the Beaufort river to Victorian and Queen Anne style homes. Streetscapes, dominated by an impressive live oak canopy and Spanish moss, evoke images of a bygone era.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  No need for a car! Leave your auto in our driveway. Steps away is beautiful downtown Beaufort's waterfront park, with its marina, shopping, dining and breathtaking scenery of the inter-coastal waterway. Daily tours are offered, including water tours, walking tours, and horse drawn carriages. Feeling brave? The nightly “ghost tour” will offer an alternative glimpse into this amazing town.
