This 4 bedroom, 3 bath historic home sits in the heart of Downtown Beaufort's prestigious 'Old Point'. Built in the late 1800's, this house is part of Beaufort's history, as it was once the Beaufort Aquarium. Unlike any other vacation homes in the area, our home is only 3 short blocks from the bay, as well as shopping, art galleries, restaurants and attractions of downtown. If you stay at 608 North Street, you will be in the perfect location to experience the best of Beaufort.
The home has been completely restored with a fully equipped kitchen, limestone tile, heart pine floors, new stainless steel appliances, and impressive antiques from Bali and Indonesia. The large master suite features a king bed, private bathroom with whirlpool tub, and a private sitting area. Two additional bedrooms have queen beds, and one bedroom has a pair of twin beds, and one double bed. Wireless internet and cable TV are included.
Three large porches provide great spots to admire the beautiful low country scenery and watch the horse drawn carriage rides pass. A short walk is Beaufort's newly renovated Waterfront Park which provides the perfect location for an afternoon of boat watching, fishing, and breathtaking sunsets.
For parents of Parris Island graduates, this house will provide a wonderful place for you and your family to relax and unwind before and after graduation. Located approximately 10 minutes from the Parris Island Gateway, our home offers a luxurious and spacious setting that is ideal for families of graduating Marines.
Hunting Island State Park, close by beaches and public boat ramps are all easily accessible, and Charleston, Hilton Head, or Savannah are close enough for day trips.
Staying at 608 North Street will truly be an experience that cannot be matched by a hotel, condo, or any other rental home. We appreciate your interest, and please email or call for more information!

About Elizabeth Christmus
Hello! We are a couple from nearby Columbia, South Carolina who fell in love with the Beaufort area a long time ago. We were lucky enough to come across this beautiful home in Downtown Beaufort in need of renovation! It took longer that we had anticipated to restore, but was well worth the effort. This is truly a one of a kind property that we love to share with other families!
Elizabeth Christmus purchased this house in 2003
Why Elizabeth Christmus chose Beaufort
Beaufort, SC has always been a place my husband and I would visit with our family. Our parents took us here when we were children, and we brought our children to Beaufort when they were young. We don't care for the 'touristy' locations that are so crowded in SC, and we love the beauty, history, beaches, etc. in Beaufort.
We chose to purchase this particular home because we love to restore historic homes, and this home we could not pass up! This home was built around the turn of the 20th century, once the old North Street Aquarium years ago. It was so beautiful and in a great location being within walking distance of the water, shops, etc.
We had to replace porches, walls, ceilings ..... this was quite the renovation project, but with a lot of work and time we were able to renovate the home to the beautiful state it is in now. This home is truly one of a kind and a part of Beaufort's history, and we are glad that we can share this with you!
