Overview

About the property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible day bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

Excellent in-town location with easy access to nearby boat landing & fishing dock, neighborhood park & playground, dog park and walking distance to historic downtown. Our home was originally built on the Marine base at Parris Island as a barrack. It was moved to Pigeon Point Road in the 1950's. We purchased the wooded lot next door to our own home in 2001 and moved the home on it & began major renovations. The community is a quiet, residential community bordered on two sides by the intra-coastal waterway. It is friendly and perfect for walking, biking & fishing. The original design of the home is commonly referred to as a 'shotgun house' -- long and narrow. Upon it's arrival to our lot, we began renovation adding two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a full kitchen. It's evolution continued as we could manage with our second phase renovation occurring in 2008 to accommodate our aging parents. More space and comfort was created by adding two bays - one with windows creating a light-filled dinning space overlooking flower garden & bird feeder; the other houses a cozy gas fireplace in living area. A walk-in shower was added to one of the bathrooms. Extension was added to the rear of the home allowing us to add two walk-in closets and expand the screened porch for outside (bug proof) seating adjacent the outdoor grill. A coat closet was added in the hallway between the kitchen and dining room and doubles for extra storage. The home is now a full functioning house with roomy cathedral ceilings, ceiling fans, heart-pine flooring throughout -- complete with claw-foot bathtub off the master bedroom. Each room is painted a yummy color compatible with the lowcountry surroundings and colorful backdrop for our installation of Eric's oversize lowcountry photographs throughout the home - ever reminding guests of the extraordinary wildlife and natural beauty that surrounds them.

About Jan & Eric Horan

Jan and I have been residents of Beaufort since 1996 and love it. Eric has been photographing nature & wildlife since college and establishing a commercial photography business throughout the southeast. Jan is a partner in the photo business bringing her artistry as writer, editor, office manager, pubic relations along with her gourmet cooking, gardening, tailoring and tennis & yoga coach -- whatever is needed! We met on Hilton Head Island in 1990 when Jan was bringing artists into the area schools, grant writing for the local arts council and raising two youngins. Our first venture together included partnering Jan's grant expertise and my recent photos from Africa into a traveling exhibition. A successful tour later led to marriage. Our travels and adventure continue. We love living on the coast and treasure the unique blend of rich cultural opportunities with extraordinary natural beauty and resources all around us.

Jan & Eric Horan purchased this house in 2001

Why Jan & Eric Horan chose Pigeon Point

This house, built on Parris Island was later moved to Pigeon Point community, and now resides on the lot next door to our own home. We moved it here when it was in pretty sad shape, did not even claim ownership to it when neighbors would walk by it's earliest stage ---but we could see it's potential. We planned the ultimate fix up would be something special. A house different from all the rest - but would blend well in his unique lowcountry neighborhood. The remodel was a labor of love and not without it's challenges as older homes come with surprises when stripped to the bones. After it's initial remodel, we rented the house long term, sold it, bought it back again for our parents to enjoy in their senior years. Now that they have moved on, we continue upgrading as able -- now wonderfully suitable for visiting and vacationing guests, family and friends.

What makes this house unique

New (2016 )King size bed in the master bedroom added! The house is designed to offer the comfort of home - whether cooking in or outside, and perfect relaxation to return home after a day of adventure... exploring or just touring scenic sights. From beach, golf, tennis and boating to nature preserves and eco tourism, this community is built around the intracoastal waterway with easy access to shopping, dinning and cultural activities. Beaufort is 30 minutes to discount shopping in Bluffton, 60 minutes to Hilton Head, Savannah, or Charleston. We're walking distance to shopping, churches, tennis, marina, boat landing, restaurants and amazing waterway views. You have easy access to three parks, National Cemetary, a public boat landing with historic downtown community, shopping and dining, churches & public tennis courts. You have a choice of beaches 20 minutes either north or south. Neighboring Port Royal community is an in-town beachfront that you can drive right up to the waters edge, walk the boardwalk up to a scenic overview of the river and Parris Island and partake in waterfront dining alongside their shrimp docks. The drive south to Hunting Island is 20 minutes passing by a spectacular scenic route over bridges and causeways, past outdoor vegetable and seafood stands and local, longtime residential rural life. Hunting Island offers outdoor recreation -- surfing, swimming, hiking & biking trails run throughout the maritime forest, covered picnic areas and active lighthouse. World class golf courses one-hour away on Hilton Head Island with several popular public courses less than 30 minutes in Bluffton and Beaufort. If you're traveling with critter friends, you'll enjoy our neighborhood dog park an easy walk from the house.

The beds were comfortable but the living room didn’t have a comfortable seat in it. The kitchen was average and there’s only one shower. Opened one door to the patio in the bedroom and couldn’t get it secured again. Had to wait until the owner came over at 9pm! It was ok, and we were able to visit and cook a meal for our Marine son, but I doubt we would ever stay here again.

Adorable Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I reserved this cottage for 6 nights and typically, I get a little restless and ready to come home, but it was truly so comfortable I never felt that way. The owners are very nice and the cottage was very well stocked with all the necessary supplies to get you started. We also loved the area of Pigeon Point. It was so convenient to several parks, the downtown area and numerous restaurants. It is also a great place for bike riding and we enjoyed kayaking too. When we come back to Beaufort, we will definitely consider staying here again!

A great place to stay in Beaufort, SC!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this little cottage. It's located on a very quiet street in Beaufort. The front porch is great to sit on with the ceiling fan going and the back screened porch is great too for the nighttime to keep the bugs away. The house is small but seems very spacious and was perfect for the 2 of us and our miniature dachshund. It's located very close to many things such as the waterfront, shopping, restaurants and more. Overall it was a very pleasant experience and should we visit Beaufort in the future we would certainly consider staying here again.
