About this Property

If you want privacy, this is the place for you. This getaway is located on a tiny peninsula of land. When my grandfather bought over 250 acres of Lady’s Island back in the late 1940’s, he always considered this 4 acre tract the jewel in the crown. It was his getaway from town long before my parents constructed a home here. Pap would come and put his boat in down at the shell ramp.

He’d cast his net in Little Lucy for those scrumptious creek shrimp to put over his grits. He fished around the bend at one of the premium fishin holes in Beaufort County. He always dreamed of living here. Its location on one of the highest bluffs overlooking deep water on Lady’s Island made it an ideal home site.

So in the 1970’s my mom designed this home and had Elias Pinkney build it. The brick home, which is shaded by live oaks draped in Spanish moss commands vistas of more than 400 feet of the shoreline of Little Lucy Creek and its salt marshes. Each bedroom has its own unique view of the water.

From the Master Bedroom you can see the sunrise or moonrise over the dock on Little Lucy Creek. But from your queen size bed you have another view that looks down the creek and toward the sunset.

From the guest bedroom you also have a view of the dock on the creek. From the third bedroom each twin bed has a view of the creek and salt marsh. Appreciate your morning coffee at the kitchen table or on the screen porch with its expansive vistas of the entire sunrise/sunset experience.

There is also seating out on the bluff so you can watch for the dolphins that swim by on the high tides or watch the stingrays, egrets and herons that come in to feed on low tide. We also have visits to the oyster bank below the bluff from a family of raccoons. Deer swim the creek to hide and feed among the magnolias and oaks. A pair of pileated woodpeckers has taken up residency in our piney woods by the dock.

This is our home and so we have tried to think of everything that might make your stay with us more calming. We have newly modernized the interior to reflect our own adore of Mid-Century modern furnishings( Very MadMen Like). There are enchanting wood floors throughout. There are ceiling fans in nearly every room and central heat and AC when desired. The giant living room with its 20 foot vaulted ceiling and open dining area were made for entertaining. For those who would rather stay inside there is seating in front of a 55 inch LED wide screen T.V.This service is supplied through Direct TV. Computer access is through WIFI . A second TV is located in the Master Bedroom.

There is also seating in front of the wood burning stone fireplace. There is a generous desk for visiting writers, computer users or splendid children working on jigsaw puzzles. The pillow top beds have soft sheets, comfortable pillows and polished coverlets.

The kitchen is thoroughly supplied with new appliances, cookware, china glassware and silverware. There are two and a half bathrooms for everybody’s appreciation and privacy. There is also generous closet space throughout the home so that you can store all your gear and belongings during your visit.

The porch is supplied with seating for all and an outdoor patio has a gas grille. The new dock is supplied with a float and kayak launch. Or you can put your boat, kayak or canoe in down at the shell ramp right on the unit. There is also a boat landing two miles away at Sam’s Point where Forest Gump was filmed.

Our getaway is within straighforward drive of Hilton Head, Charleston and Savannah. It is @five mins. from all the necessary stores. A ten min. drive over a spectacular bridge will get you to Downtown Beaufort with its stores, carriage rides and eateries. In fifteen you can be at historic Port Royal and Paris Island. In twenty mins. you can be at one of the most superb beaches on the east coast at Hunting Island State Park and Lighthouse. There is a complimentary pass to enter the park available during your stay.

For golfers there is a terrific public course at Cat Island . For nature lovers there are boat tours of the ACE basin. A notebook is available with information about our favorite things to do in the area and places to eat, shop and visit.

Or you may be like us and just sit on that porch watching the world of the tides come and go. They say that once you have smelled the pluff mud it gets in your veins and pulls you back just like the tides.
