Overview

About the property

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

This house 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, in the same community which is a quiet residential community bordered on two sides by the intra-coastal waterway with excellent community features including a public boat landing and neighborhood park. It is a great walking, biking, fishing and boat friendly community. The original house was only 14' by 42'. The design is commonly referred to as a 'shotgun house' -- long and narrow. Upon it's arrival to our lot, we began major renovation. We added two bedrooms and 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 to the primary living area. One houses a lovely gas fireplace to enhance the sitting/tv screening area; the other bay provides a light-filled dinning area with floor to ceiling windows overlooking a flower garden and bird feeder. The 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 an authentic 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. Most people who walk in the front door for the first time fall in love with it.

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 Beaufort

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 (2014!) )Kingsize Simmons Beautyrest 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.

CHARMING, ROOMY, WELL-APPOINTED HOUSE

  • 4 of 5

This is a near perfect house for a multiple-day trip -- beautifully appointed, comfortable, and close to the historic district. It also happens to be in a pretty and very peaceful neighborhood, with great walks to the water, an enormous, walled cemetery, and a nearby park. The house is tastefully furnished and accessorized with just about everything a traveler could need. The layout is ideal for two couples, and both bedrooms have large, bright walk-in closets with lots of shelves to accommodate everything we brought for the full two-week vacation. The only issue we had was the bed in the larger of the two bedrooms -- the mattress had a serious sink-hole in the middle, making it difficult for our friends to sleep well. As it happened, we chose the smaller room because its bathroom has a shower, and we ended up feeling very lucky. The other bathroom is lovely, but it has a tub, no shower. Other than the bed problem (which is significant when one is traveling), we felt incredibly lucky and very smart to have chosen this house for our 4-night stay in Beaufort, SC. April 2017

Just Right

  • 5 of 5

We fled the cold, snow, and ice for 2 warm and relaxing months in Beaufort. We absolutely love the charming and roomy cottage, it's location in a walkable neighborhood, and the friendly town of Beaufort. Everything we needed or wanted was there. Jan and Eric could not have been more wonderful. We plan to return next year!
