Property description

This beautiful townhouse, located in the historic district, is just 3 short blocks from downtown Beaufort. Walk to the Waterfront Park, downtown shops, galleries or a variety of restaurants. Little need for a car. Our home is located on a published walking tour route and horse-drawn carriage tours come within 100 ft of the house.

Bedrooms: The house can sleep six comfortably, with 3 bedrooms and 2 baths. Two bedrooms are upstairs and one is on the ground floor. The large master bedroom has a queen bed; it also has a single size sleep sofa. The second bedroom has 2 single beds. The ground floor has a bedroom with a very comfortable queen sleep sofa (Tiffany 24/7 Mechanism). If not needed as a bedroom, this room doubles as a den/ office and has a working fireplace. The upstairs bathroom has his & hers sinks as well as a shower/ tub. The downstairs bath has a shower. Washer & dryer are upstairs for convenience.

Living room: The front door leads into a large living room decorated with a coastal theme. The large bay window gives a spacious feeling. Relax in cushioned wicker chairs and sofa. We’ve decorated with pictures and artwork from many places.

Kitchen and eating area: The kitchen is small, but fully equipped and has all appliances. The dining table seats 8.

Deck & backyard: A large deck is great for entertaining or just relaxing. The backyard is fenced and surrounded by trees to provide security and a sense of privacy. Parking is off-street in a dedicated space behind the townhouse. The parking area and back are well-lighted with three streetlights.

Entertainment and communications: The townhouse has DirecTV with two TVs (one is HD). High speed internet is available with a wireless router.

Our home is located in a quiet residential neighborhood with private off-street parking. In additions, we feel extra secure because of the 3 streetlights in the back. Walk, jog, or ride bikes through this historic area to see nearby historic churches, beautiful homes, and tree-lined streets. Extra parking is available in the free municipal parking lot just next door. Launch a boat in the Intracoastal Waterway at two near-by public ramps: Beaufort City Marina Landing or Pigeon Point Landing.

Being a military family, we offer a discount to family of graduating Marine Corps recruits. Our townhouse is a great place for you to relax with your graduating Marine. It is located just under 6 miles (10 minutes) from the entrance to US Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island. Our home is convenient to both downtown and Parris Island. The map show the location of our townhouse in Beaufort, and it can be adjusted to show the route to Parris Island down Ribaut Road through the town of Port Royal.

The City of Beaufort and surrounding areas provide visitors with a wide array of opportunities to relax and take in all that the Lowcountry has to offer. Whether it's paddling down the Beaufort River on a guided kayak tour or listening to the tales of Beaufort's past while taking in the sites of our Landmark Historic District on a horse-drawn carriage you're sure to be delighted with this charming southern town. Our unique, fully restored central business district is filled with shops and restaurants all within walking distance of beautiful downtown inns and hotels. Just minutes from the beaches of Hilton Head and Hunting Islands and a short drive from hundreds of holes of world class championship golf, Beaufort has it all!

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: With roots in South Carolina, we have spent most of our careers outside the South. Ed was in the military and Mary taught at the elementary school level. We have vacationed on the South Carolina coast for as long as we can remember. When we discovered Beaufort and the sea islands, we knew this was the place.We are eager to be back and bought this townhouse as a vacation home. For now, we are offering our vacation home to others.

Why the Owner Chose Beaufort:
For several summers, we visited the Beaufort area and stayed in different locations (e.g., Ladys Island, Port Royal, Parris Island Gateway area, Pigeon Point, and near downtown.) We discovered that nothing beats the convenience and simplicity of being so close to downtown and the waterfront. When crowded events occur along the waterfront, we never have to worry about parking (or a designated driver ). Shopping, restaurants, strolling the marina, the public library, and the Post Office are all just a few blocks away. You might be able to avoid driving all week, except for all the adventures waiting in the surrounding South Carolina Sea Islands. For day trips, try locations such as Charleston, Savannah, Hilton Head, or Walterboro. If you're going towards Charleston, we really enjoyed the Charleston Tea Plantation; it was fun taking the tour and learning how tea is grown and produced. Walterboro is a favorite place both for its antique shops and its artists' shops.

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
Our townhouse is an end unit which we particularly like. Extra windows on the side give it a more spacious feel with lots of light. The raised deck is our favorite space because it is a natural extension of the living space and because the tall lattice fence and trees give a real feeling of privacy. In addition, the back yard (56 x 30 ft) is fully enclosed. The neighborhood is very quiet. Surrounded by churches (Episcopal, Presbyterian, Baptist), Sunday morning is the only time when it's busy. During the week, the only interruptions are the hourly church bells from St Helena's Episcopal Church (but only during the day.)
