ABOUT THE CITY OF BEAUFORT HOMES FOR SALE AND THE LOCAL COMMUNITY
Beaufort is the county seat of Beaufort County, and has a rich history in culture and outdoor beauty. It was recently voted as one of the top 10 most beautiful small towns in America. The county features two of South Carolina’s National Historic Landmark Districts – Beaufort’s own historic district of antebellum mansions and nearby Penn Center, home to the South’s first school for freed slaves. It is also the home to the famous Parris Island Marine Corps Recruit Depot and the internationally known luxury resort of Hilton Head Island.
Known as a sleepy town along the waterfront, Beaufort has much to boast about with its historic homes tucked into narrow interlocking streets and adorned by natural foliage and centuries-old, moss-draped live oak trees. One of the great focal points is the city’s winding waterfront that comes alive with many of the towns festivals. Other notable interests: The movie The Big Chill was filmed here in 1983, and novelist Pat Conroy who wrote The Prince of Tides currently resides in Beaufort SC with his wife.
Perfectly located along the coast, residents can choose to live in planned new home neighborhoods, reside in older historic homes near the waterfront, or choose to live on one of the areas abundant island communities. Beaufort, SC is the perfect place for those who enjoy relaxed outdoor living along the coast.
