Living in the Lowcountry
Enjoy a Relaxed and Refined Southern Lifestyle
South Carolina’s coastal region is rich in culture, history, and natural beauty. It’s the ideal place to raise a family or to retire, with access to beautiful beaches, amazing entertainment, and the Southern charm that defines coastal South Carolina.
Home to Hilton Head, Bluffton, Beaufort, and other popular tourist destinations, the Lowcountry is also a great place to call home with pristine beaches, ample golf and tennis clubs, and dining that ranges from true Southern barbecue to fresh seafood. You’ll find oak tree-lined streets, historic Southern architecture, picturesque salty marshes, easy access to state parks, and a vibrant social scene. The local art and music scenes are thriving, too, with plenty of options for entertainment.
The Lowcountry region is truly a Southeastern gem — a place where the relaxed Southern lifestyle meets upscale living at an affordable price. With mild winters but distinct seasons, the Lowcountry is attractive year-round.
Oldfield is an 860-acre sports-oriented, environmentally sensitive private gated residential community on the banks of the Okatie River, in Bluffton, South Carolina. All owners enjoy a comprehensive amenity package, including access to the River Club Dining Room, a 20,000 square-foot Lowcountry golf clubhouse at the Greg Norman 18-hole championship golf course. Oldfield had remained largely untouched for over a century until the 2000s when it was turned into the appealing community of homes and cottages that it has become today.
Palmetto Bluff is a planned community nestled in the Lowcountry of South Carolina between Hilton Head and Savannah comprising 20,000 acres. As part of the Builder Guild, Front Light will be building customized homes for the Builder Guild Home Collection at Palmetto Bluff — a series of fourteen home profiles designed specifically for living at Palmetto Bluff, which is the largest remaining waterfront property on the East Coast.
Beaufort, with its Lowcountry architecture and ideal location, is one of South Carolina’s premier addresses. City Walk is a creek-side community within walking distance to shops, restaurants, parks, art galleries, and museums. City Walk is a park-like neighborhood located on a creek in historic downtown Beaufort – just a short walk or bike ride to boutique shopping, locally-owned restaurants, history-filled museums, and year-round downtown festivals. The community is located off of Water Street about a mile from the Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park.
Habersham was designed with attention to every detail that makes for idyllic small-town living. The community offers playgrounds, multiple parks, waterfront access with a fishing dock and boat launch, great restaurants and entertainment, shopping, a pool and fitness center, and more. Everything is accessible within a short walk. The award-winning design was conceptualized after touring many small Southern towns and combining the best of what they had to offer – beauty, safety, fine architecture and amenities. The town was built around the existing natural landscape, preserving significant green space.
In the midst of 400-year-old live oaks draped in Spanish moss are 77 homesites that are a sanctuary for the wildlife and residents that live here. Once a private plantation, Pinckney Retreat is still home to the original 1736 marsh front Tabby House and antebellum gardens that have been restored for current residents’ use and enjoyment. The plantation grounds have been preserved through green spaces and a residents’ pool with a covered grilling area, fireplace, and indoor kitchen are centrally located. A community pier with dock and walking trails creates opportunities for all homeowners to view the coastal life and sunsets that abound.
