The house was completely remodeled, inside and out, in 2013-2014. The kitchen is perhaps the largest on Fripp with every appliance you may desire. The 5 full bathrooms have all been upgraded. All bedrooms are carpeted, with hardwood throughout the living and dining area. A few special features include 3 thermostats on the main floor, a separate ice maker in the kitchen and a large spa tub in the upstairs master suite.

Fripp Island is a 3,000-acre barrier island off the coast of South Carolina, gets its name from swashbuckling English Captain Johannes Fripp. Legend has it that pirates, including Captain Fripp, used the island as a secluded hideaway. Located 19 miles east of Beaufort, Fripp Island consists of a three and a half miles beach and wildlife sanctuary.

Our island has several pool complexes, including an Olympic pool, 3 that are ocean front and one with waterfalls. There are also clay and asphalt tennis courts, restaurants, the 2 championship golf courses and a small fitness center.

The most seaward of the beautiful barrier islands of South Carolina, Fripp Island is 3000 acres of natural beauty. Designated as a Wildlife Sanctuary, more than 175 species of birds live along the ocean and Great Salt Marsh. Any given day you can spot majestic brown pelicans flying in formation or great blue herons, snowy white egrets and wood storks stalking their next meal. Among the native wildlife you’ll find raccoons, alligator and an abundance of deer, more than 250 at last count. The deer captivate young and old alike and will literally pose next to you for photographs.

The ocean abounds in bass, trout, flounder, grouper and blue crabs. Dolphins play in the waters surrounding Fripp Island. Even the endangered loggerhead turtle makes the island a nesting ground laying as many as 125 eggs in one nest. The forests here are covered with live oaks, palmettos, pines, flowering magnolias and oleanders. The beauty of Fripp Island has been immortalized in scenes from Forrest Gump, The Prince of Tides and The Jungle Book.

Fripp Receives Prestigious National Wildlife Award

In May 2013, Fripp became the fourth community in South Carolina and only the 68th in the country certified by the National Wildlife Federation as a “Community Wildlife Habitat.” This national recognition confirms what our visitors and residents already know: Naturally Fripp is unmatched as a recreation and vacation destination.
