About the property

3 Bedroom / 2 Bath End Unit Townhouse - Large Deck, Fenced Back Yard & Firepit

This beautiful townhouse, located in the historic district, is just 3 short blocks from downtown Beaufort. Being an "end unit", our place provides extra light, views and privacy not available in other townhouses. Walk to the Waterfront Park, downtown shops, galleries or a variety of restaurants. Little need for a car once you arrive. 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 spacious deck is great for entertaining or just relaxing. The backyard is fenced and surrounded by trees to provide security and a sense of privacy. Our landscaping includes a large patio paved with smooth river pebble stone. The central fire pit and ample stock of firewood create a fun focal point for evening get togethers.

Parking: Parking is off-street in a dedicated space behind the townhouse. Additional guest spaces are available. In addition, 2 free parking lots are across the street. 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.

About Edward Brown

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.

Edward Brown purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Edward Brown chose Historic District

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.

What makes this townhome unique

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.)

Wonderful location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great stay in Beaufort. This townhouse is very conveniently located. Easy walk to Bay St and Old Point areas. We did not use the back yard due to weather but there is a fire pit and nice deck. The kitchen is small but we ate out most meals so it suited us just fine. Only draw back was the living room furniture which was uncomfortable for my senior parents but we stayed on the go most days. I highly recommend trying Old Bull Tavern for a high end meal and Saltus for seafood. We enjoyed the buggy tour and just strolling downtown. The owner of this home was gracious and very responsive. I highly recommend a stay here if you're in the area.

Comfy and super Convenient!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here while visiting Parris Island for our sons graduation and couldn't have felt more at home! The place was clean, comfortable and had absolutely everything we needed. I just wish we had more time there to enjoy the back yard! The bikes were convenient for a quick ride to check out the local area. The owners were awesome in responding promptly and if the need arises to visit the area again, we would definitely reserve this home again!

Marine Graduation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this house while in town for family days on Parris Island. It is a perfect location for easy access to Parris Island. The house was perfect for us (5 adults). The back porch area was an added bonus. We had a fire each evening and enjoyed sitting outside. We used the kitchen and cooked our meals each day. We also used the grill and cooked the requested food to take the next day. We truly enjoyed our stay. I would highly recommend this property if you are going to be in the area.

Great location, very comfortable and homey.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this townhome in the historic district of Beaufort. We wanted to be within walking distance of the waterfront for the annual Shrimp Festival and it didn't disappoint. We also could walk to church for Sunday morning worship, only 2 1/2 blocks away, which was nice. I loved hearing the church bells ring on the hour (they don't ring them at night). The back deck was a great place to sit and relax with a glass of wine at the end of the day. Our doggie enjoyed it too! The beds in the two bedrooms were very comfortable. Overall, I would recommend this property if you like being located in an urban setting.

In the heart of historic Beaufort.

  • 5 of 5

Great location. We parked the car and didn't get back in until we left. We walked everywhere. The hosts were very considerate and very easy to work with. I have done many of these types of stays and this is a definite favorite.
