This beautiful Low Country home will take your breath away with its stunning saltwater marsh views, Spanish Moss draped live oaks, and peaceful atmosphere. Located on a two and half acre waterfront lot with deepwater dock access to Boyd Creek, this spacious home has six bedrooms and four baths, and enough room to accommodate twelve people comfortably! The house is divided, by an indoor hallway, into two separate living quarters, each with 3 bedrooms, two baths and their own kitchen, living room and laundry. This unique layout is perfect for groups that want to vacation together but would also benefit from separate living spaces. You will find that there are many useful benefits to this distinctive layout. For example, if the kids want to watch one movie – but the adults want to watch another; or if one group likes to sleep in, while the other group likes to get up early – they can easily do so without disturbing each other!
The location of this house is truly breathtaking. Take a walk out on the dock and drink in the views of Boyd Creek, the surrounding saltwater marsh, and over 100 species of birds and assorted wildlife. You will often find a dolphin mother and her calf swimming by the dock as they devour a meal from the bait-filled creek. Feel free to enjoy the use of our kayaks and admire such sights as the dolphins, beautiful sunsets, and true southern splendor. Close by are many hunting properties. The local area boasts Eastern Wild Turkey and excellent duck hunting. We also have the longest deer season in the U.S. from August 15th to January 1st. In addition, Tuten Landing Boat Ramp is located next door to the home, allowing water access if you choose to bring a boat with on vacation. Enjoy bird watching or a colorful sunrise from the screened in porch where you can also spend your nights gazing at the stars. You can also enjoy the large grassed yard by playing a game of football or grilling out on the outdoor grill or fire pit.
The quaint town of Ridgeland is located nearby. Immediately you will feel at home and welcomed by the Southern charm of this small town. Staying at this home is a favorite of families celebrating their son or daughter’s graduation from the US Marine Corps base camp at Parris Island, which has been training marines since 1891 and is only about 30 minutes from the Blue Crab Retreat. In addition, for those looking to shop, Hilton Head Island is just 40 minutes away. Hilton Head offers over two dozen championship golf courses, 100 tennis courts, and over 50 miles of public bike and nature trails. This island features over 200 outlet and department stores and many local boutiques. It is a 30 minute drive from the house to historic Savannah. There you can experience fine art, extensive shopping, and a wide variety of delicious local restaurants. The house is also located 40 minutes from historic Beaufort and an hour and a half from beautiful Charleston.
This gorgeous Low Country home has something for every member of the family, so come and visit where true southern hospitality and the beauties of nature collide!
