Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: In 1995, My husband and I were driving back to Atlanta from Jacksonville and stopped in Savannah for lunch. I picked up my usual real estate magazines and paged through them until I found a quaint home for sale on Port Royal Island SC. Now that just sounded so beautiful. I begged my husband to take a detour. Then we found Beaufort South Carolina; Driving the old roads of Hwy 17 from Savannah through a canopy of Oaks I felt I De'JaVu, I had somehow been here before. It was so magical and peaceful, I felt I was home. I knew the first time I arrived in Beaufort that this would ..eventually.. be my home. My search then began for the next 10 years driving every little road to find something wonderful, special and afforadable. No GPs's back then. When I arrived at Saltwind I knew this was a magical oasis. Somewhere the world forgot. Please join me on my journey to Saint Helena Island in Beaufort SC. I hope you love this tropical oasisand jungle as much as I do.
Why the Owner Chose Beaufort:
We bought this home with the intention of moving here as soon as we could but employment and health factors soon changed our situation. I angst over whether to let go of my dreams, loose my deposit or risk having two homes and go with it. My Aunt came to the rescue with the a suggestion of renting it too. I had never even thought about it. With my husband teaching year round we are rarely able to get away together. I fell in love with the town and the property; hopefully this would be my final home, so we went through with buying the home. I am still taken with it, STILL in love with my home, my location, and my struggles to implement my ideas to improve it for you and ourselves. While the rest of world races past at its hectic pace, this little island is much the same as it was when Columbus, Ponce De Leon, and DeSoto set foot upon the New World of North America.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Beaufort and Saint Helena Island offer the history of Low Country with the very first settlers from Europe to North America. the downtown offer many free cultural events. The terrain is a tropical rain forest. The area is comprised of 167 islands all separated by tidal creeks, marshes rivers, estuaries, sounds, and the Atlantic Ocean.The ancient trees, the moss that came over with the Spaniards on the sails of their ships now drape everything here. An area of Firsts.... The first Seminole and Yamassee Indians settled here. Invaded by the Spanish, the French, the British, Scottish, seven countries have flown their flag over this soil. This has been the most fought over territory in North America. the first plantations, slaves,The islands were first in the Gullah and Geechee cultures. This island has been waiting here untouched for hundreds of years just waiting for you and I to discover it's treasures. This is a home, not just a rental. It is very comfortable and quiet! Walk your dogs with your morning coffee in privacy on the beach. Fish right in the sound across the street and cook up dinner with your own harvest of clams, oysters, fish & crabs.. In the Summer, Soaking in the salty warm waters at high tide is like a walking into an ocean sized hot tub. The soft gentle waves are a real treat you don't have to fight riptides and the towing out to sea. In early summer watch the Loggerhead Sea turtles nest right on the beach at the access as they have for thousands of years, or investigate the nests they leave on the beach. In August, the eggs hatch and the baby turtles crawl out to sea in the early fall mornings. Just relax on the deck with a glass of wine, good book from our library, feel the gentle breeze and listen to Conroy's Beach Music, the waves at high-tide Enjoy our Extensive Library, Kayaking and Horseback riding/walking in the neighborhood and beach at Camelot Farms or fish the beach, or you can drop your boat in the many boat landings.
