Northern Beaufort County, SC

The road north from Beaufort passes through acres of truck farms into the edge of the big rice plantation country, now known as the ACE Basin. The ACE is one of the richest natural wonderlands in the country. ACE is an acronym for three rivers: the Ashepoo, the Combahee and the Edisto Rivers. Together these rivers flow to the sea and create a vital ecosystem system that nourishes the beginning of life at the edge of the Atlantic. These were the fresh waters that rice planters and their slaves harnessed to make rice production a source of unbelievable wealth in the South. Now, the area is greatly protected for the wealth of wildlife it fosters. But well-planned development has opened some beautiful home sites in the area, as well as some new, gated communities along the water.

Sheldon is home to the ruins and tombs of the historic Old Sheldon Church which survived both the revolutionary and civil wars. Nearby some of the “old” plantations have been turned into “new” and splendid residential plantations with Lowcountry-style housing set among the live oaks and along the river banks. Occasionally, a historic plantation mansion with acreage and outbuildings comes on the market.

Bordering the northern half of the old Charleston-Savannah highway, parts of which are now US 17, this area is about 15 minutes from I-95, a bit more than an hour from Charleston and 30 minutes from Beaufort. Savannah/Hilton Head Airport would be a one-hour drive.
