4 bedroom historic home in the heart of Downtown Beaufort.
This 4 bedroom, 3 bath historic home sits in the heart of Downtown Beaufort's prestigious 'Old Point'. Built in the late 1800's, this house is part of Beaufort's history, and is only 3 short blocks from the bay, as well as shopping, art galleries, restaurants and attractions of downtown. If you stay at 608 North Street, you will be in the perfect location to experience the best of Beaufort.
The home has been completely restored with a fully equipped kitchen, limestone tile, heart pine floors, new stainless steel appliances, and impressive antiques from Bali and Indonesia. The large master suite features a king bed, private bathroom with whirlpool tub, and a private sitting area. The 2nd upstairs bedroom has a queen and double bed. The 3rd upstairs bedroom has two twin beds, and one double bed. The 4th bedroom downstairs has a king bed. Wireless internet and cable TV are included.
Three large porches provide great spots to admire the beautiful low country scenery and watch the horse drawn carriage rides pass. A short walk is Beaufort's newly renovated Waterfront Park which provides the perfect location for an afternoon of boat watching, fishing, and breathtaking sunsets.
For parents of Parris Island graduates, this house will provide a wonderful place for you and your family to relax and unwind before and after graduation. Located approximately 10 minutes from the Parris Island Gateway, our home offers a luxurious and spacious setting that is ideal for families of graduating Marines.
Hunting Island State Park, close by beaches and public boat ramps are all easily accessible, and Charleston, Hilton Head, or Savannah are close enough for day trips.
Staying at 608 North Street will truly be an experience that cannot be matched by a hotel, condo, or any other rental home. We appreciate your interest, and please email or call for more information!
PS - If you like historic homes, you will love this house. This home has been completely renovated and has all the modern conveniences while maintaining a historic charm. It is located in a prime spot in the historic district. If you are someone who is expecting new flawless construction and prefers a hotel room or suite over a historic property, you probably will not like this home. This home was build almost 200 years ago, and though it has been completely restored and is well taken care of, it does have imperfections that are typical of historic homes in the Beaufort and Charleston areas. We think this is what makes the home special, and we hope you will agree!

About Elizabeth Christmus
Hello! We are a couple from nearby Columbia, South Carolina who fell in love with the Beaufort area a long time ago. We were lucky enough to come across this beautiful home in Downtown Beaufort in need of renovation! It took longer that we had anticipated to restore, but was well worth the effort. This is truly a one of a kind property that we love to share with other families!
Elizabeth Christmus purchased this House in 2003
Why Elizabeth Christmus chose The Old Point
Beaufort, SC has always been a place my husband and I would visit with our family. Our parents took us here when we were children, and we brought our children to Beaufort when they were young. We don't care for the 'touristy' locations that are so crowded in SC, and we love the beauty, history, beaches, etc. in Beaufort. We chose to purchase this particular home because we love to restore historic homes, and this home we could not pass up! This home was built around the turn of the 20th century, once the old North Street Aquarium years ago. It was so beautiful and in a great location being within walking distance of the water, shops, etc. We had to replace porches, walls, ceilings ..... this was quite the renovation project, but with a lot of work and time we were able to renovate the home to the beautiful state it is in now. This home is truly one of a kind and a part of Beaufort's history, and we are glad that we can share this with you!
What makes this House unique
Staying in our home, you will have a vacation experience like none other in Beaufort. Our home is different than any other home in the area and a part of what makes historic Beaufort special. Our home has three porches where you can relax, enjoy the breeze, read a book, or watch the carriage tours pass by. Our home is within walking distance of everything downtown. Our family loves to take walks around dusk and watch the sunset over the water. You can have morning coffee at one of the cafe's on the street as you walk to waterfront park. You can shop, eat at the restaurants, tour historic Beaufort... all without having to drive anywhere. This house is one that you will find truly special!

Ideal rental for our group of 7 for the Beaufort International Film Festival. Comfortable and walking distance for all our destinations. Parking for 3 cars a real bonus. Highly recommend.
Parris Island Graduation Stay
This was a beautiful home with lots of room for a big family during the graduation for our new Marine at Parris Island. It is a great location, walking distance to a wonderful shopping/restaurant area where you can see the water. Very quiet neighborhood for getting a good night's rest. We had a need when we first arrived, contacted the owner and received a very prompt response. Yes, we would stay at this location again!!!!
Beautifully appointed home with all amenities.
Our family stayed at this home before and after our granddaughter's wedding. There were no negatives, all positives for each of us. The location was so convenient and the home met all needs of family members ranging in age from 17 to 80.
Beautiful classic southern home
What a beautiful home, every detail to the house was thought through. It's like taking a stroll back in time! Close proximity to amazing shopping and food. This place is wonderful.
It was very spacious, and plenty big enough for our family of 12!
So Happy we found this place
We rented the house for the second week in July to gather family together. The house was big enough that everyone (10 of us) had their own space but yet we could all stay together. Being within walking distance of great restaurants and shopping as well as the riverfront was ideal! The kitchen was well stocked with dishes and utensils and the linens were of good quality not to mention the comfortable beds. The only thing I could have asked for was cooler weather but hey it's July in South Carolina so we weren't surprised. During the cooler evenings walking around the beautiful historic neighborhood was so enjoyable. I would do this again in a heartbeat 😊
You will be in the heart of Downtown Beaufort. From our home, you can easily walk down to waterfront park and to the art galleries, antique shops, restaurants, and all attractions of downtown Beaufort. It is a very nice place for walking!
For Parris Island families, you will be in a great location to attend graduation ceremonies and have plenty to keep you busy in your spare time.
