Lady's Island, Beaufort County, SC

Lady’s Island, just across the picturesque swing bridge from Beaufort, feels like an extension of Beaufort, but is a bit more rural. Once home to indigo plantations and the domain of fishermen and shrimpers, Lady’s Island is where the area’s first country club community designed for retirement living was built.

The island has miles and miles of waterfront. Since homes were built property-by-property rather than neighborhood-by-neighborhood, they reflect individual styles. There are even a few luxury condominiums on the water, plus majestic new mansions and more modest homes and cottages. Many have private or shared docks. A new neighborhood is under construction at Coosaw Point. And mid-island, a walking neighborhood by famous planners Duany Plater-Zyberk has started construction.

The Intracoastal Waterway runs along two sides of Lady’s Island with the mostly-deep-water Lucy Creek on the eastern side. Connected to Lady’s Island by nearly unnoticeable bridges and raised roadways are other islands, including Cat Island and Distant Island. These smaller islands are home to some of Beaufort’s newest luxury communities with vistas overlooking endless tidal creek and marsh, or deep waters leading to Port Royal Sound, the Intracoastal and the Atlantic Ocean.

Lady’s Island and connected islands also have equestrian farms, advanced-stage maritime forests, tabby remnants of old plantation buildings and shallow-water beds of ancient fossils. Community boat ramps provide easy access to deep water.

Lady’s Island has the advantage of being “close in” to town. It is 20 minutes to the beach, five minutes to town, and about an hour from the Savannah/Hilton Head airport. Charleston is about an hour and a half away, and it takes 40 minutes to reach I-95. A convenient shopping crossroads with one of the area’s best and largest grocery stores and an excellent wine and liquor store means that all necessities are near at hand.
