THIS IS 101 PALMS...
a private getaway located within 20 minutes of downtown Historic Beaufort in Coffin Point Plantation. Once you turn down the road you can't help but feel like you have 'been down this road before'? Why not?? The Avenue of the Oaks in Coffin Point is the backdrop for those long walks Forrest and Jenny took in 'Forrest Gump'. Movies such as Prince of Tides, GI Jane, White Squall, The Big Chill and The Legend of Bagger Vance are just a few of the other movies filmed here also. With all this gorgeous water and these grand old trees filled with moss, it is no wonder we are becoming known as the East Coast Hollywood.
While staying is this home, you will awake with pleasure to sensational sunrise views. Days will be spent sitting on 200 ft of semi private beach front. The home was completely renovated in 2008. Sophisticated appointments with gorgeous vintage slate; new hardwood floors; handmade tile; exceptional granite color & design; Oghetti light fixtures; on-demand hot water heater and so much more. The open space and 1 story floor plan, make it especially suitable for entertaining and handicap accessibilility. The professional kitchen with dual fuel Dacor cooking and Sub Zero refrigerator is fit for any foodie. A separate art studio is heated and great for arts and crafts. Screened porch with outdoor grill are perfect for enjoying easy dinners or your morning coffee. For a small fee you can ride a horse through the waves or rent a stable from the boarding stable down the way. The setting is remarkably private and serene. Truly lovely in every way. A 2 car garage is on premises.
You are minutes from Hunting Island State Park /Beach - which is good for fishing, exploring nature and looking for shells. Located on the island, and within minutes of home, are restaurants like: Foolish Frog - with acoustic entertainment on the deck overlooking the marsh; Bella Luna - Italian and Pizzeria; Boondocks - nightly specials; Shrimp Shack (If you haven't had a shrimp burger save yourself for this one) and Johnson Creek Tavern. Fresh catch can be purchased off the boat at Gay's Fish Company. You might catch your own. Local produce available nearby too.
In town, carriage and walking tours share stories of rich southern history and architecture of the 2nd oldest town in South Carolina. Living around water makes it easy to jump in a boat for skiing, fishing, shrimping, kayaking and sandbaring (a lowcountry boater past-time). Of course it wouldn't be South Carolina without golf courses too! Beaufort is conveniently located between Hilton Head, Charleston and Savannah. Upcoming events include: International Film Festival -February; Spring Tour of Homes-March; Soft Shell CrabFest- April; Taste of Beaufort Food Fest & Gullah Fest-May; 10 day Waterfestival-July and ShrimpFest-October. Not to mention PGA -Heritage Golf Tournament at Hilton Head, in the spring.

What makes this house unique
The best thing about this property are the big windows; lush green palm trees and water views from nearly every window. It's also extremely private.
