About John G. Leggett

Real Estate developer and Naval Aviator, who has always taken pride in taking on a project in a superior location and bringing it back to life for others to enjoy. We try to think of everything and welcome constructive comments and criticism. If you ask for it and we can make it better, it will be done.

Audusta Place is almost a surreal setting on the Beaufort River. You would never know how nice it was if you didn't stay here once! A drive by simply doesn't give you a feel for how warm and comfortable this home is. We strive for cleanliness, convenience and lots of entertainment. With flat screens in two rooms, a dynamic surround system, a fully equipped kitchen, and very comfortable bedding, you should feel right at home with a breathtaking view of the Beaufort River and InterCoastal.

The 'View' is breathtaking and at the same time very relaxing. The location phenomenal. We welcome small special events such as outside wedding parties for a nominal 'grounds' charge. Sorry, special events not permitted if the house is being used by guests.

John G. Leggett purchased this cottage in 2007

Why John G. Leggett chose Beaufort

We discovered Historic Downtown Beaufort after being driven off Hilton Head Island due to traffic and crowds. The very first visit was enough for us to invest in the area. We spent two plus years looking before we decided to invest in 811 Audusta Place on the Beaufort River. Although we preferred deep water, we settled for the view and free launching and boat access to the River 1/4 mile down the street. The neighborhood (Pigeon Pt.) is slowly regentrifying into a perfect long or short term residential area.

We have a beautiful park within two blocks, well maintained tennis courts within a 10 minute walk, recreational ball fields about 5 blocks away, the National Cemetery adjoining the neighborhood, and Hisoric Downtown Beaufort a mere 5 minute bike ride away.

Parris Island and MCAS Beaufort (The sound you hear overhead is 'The sound of Freedom!') are only 15 minutes to either gate. If you are a retiree, you should check out the new commissary and exchange on Parris Island. If you play golf, retired or not, you are welcome to play the Parris Island Golf Course for a very reasonable green fee. AND, YOU CAN WALK!

You should sleep soundly, as there is no noise to contend with. No adjacent hotel rooms with adjoining rooms. No required presence for breakfast at 'their' serving times, no clutter or uncomfortable furniture.

You should sleep soundly in a quiet setting, and wake up to your own schedule, your favorite brand of your coffee, and a sunrise setting along the Beaufort River at Audusta Place

in Pigeon Point. Come stay with us! You'll love it!!!

Could Not Have Been Nicer

We were overjoyed to spend a week at the Riverfront cottage. As lovely as advertised and then some. Lots of nice touches and an amazing view from this quiet, convenient location. Can't say enough good things about this place.

Romantic Getaway

  • 5 of 5
What a fabulous cottage! We enjoyed our stay so much that we are planning our next trip. The cottage is so convenient to the downtown area. The views are just beautiful at sunrise and sunset. The house is stocked well with everything needed for a getaway. And Beaufort is such a hidden gem. Our first trip to Beaufort was so special because of the accommodations. We will be back.

Great for Couples!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this great cottage during our house hunt trip last October. It had everything we needed, and it is centrally located but not too close to town. Sunrises over the marsh were spectacular, and we loved watching the boats. We saw a beautiful red fox one morning - a complete South Carolina scene!

Addition to our February 3, 2014 Review!

  • 5 of 5
I had mentioned that the cottage will be getting a small remodel in the future, HOWEVER it is not necessary to wait to stay here for the completion. The bathroom and laundry were just fine in their current state. The cottage and grounds are magical, and I would recommend it to anyone.

Also the previous restaurants that I named are much more casual dining. For a more upscale experience, we would recommend Saltus and Breakwater...food and wait staff are excellent. Griffin Market is an experience not to be missed!

Hope this is helpful!

Beautiful Marsh Front Cottage....Magical!

  • 5 of 5
This lovely cottage on the marsh, was everything the description states and more. My husband and I stayed here for an extended time as we are considering a move to the area. The pictures, location and amenities are exactly what you see listed here. The owner is undertaking a bathroom remodel which will just add to the already lovely home. The size was ideal for a couple, and the sofa sleeper is actually comfortable, as our college age son stayed with us for 5 days. Everything you need for an overnight stay or extended stay is available.

The property is very well kept, the linens and furniture were in wonderful condition and the kitchen was well stocked. The location is ideal for nice walks to town; however it is hard to pull yourself away from the beauty of the marsh location.

With Charleston 1 hour and 20 minutes to the north, Savannah 1 hour to the south, and Hilton Head Island in the same county, it is an ideal location. But we would highly recommend just enjoying "all things Beaufort", and the outlying sea islands. Hunting Island, Old Sheldon Church Ruins, Fort Fremont, and a fried bologna sandwich & antiquing in Walterboro to name a few!

Save time to get on the water any way you can!

There are too many restaurants to name here, however (3) stand out: The Old Bull Tavern (dinner), Fat Patties (lunch), and Smokin Planks (smoked meats! yummy)

We hope you find the beauty in the area as magical as we did, and that you enjoy this lovely cottage.

Simply perfect stay....

  • 5 of 5
Simple perfect, is how I would describe my recent stay at the Waterfront Cottage. The cottage is furnished immaculately with no detail being overlooked; the high thread coutn sheets, the fluffy towels, the fully equipped kitchen, the comfortable bed and furnishings...and the list goes on and on. The location is PERFECT for early morning coffee as the sunrises or a nice glass of wine with the sunset. Crabbing and fishing were right out my back door..and I got LOTS of crab!! I am usually VERY particular when it comes to my accomodations, but I could not find a single thing that was just not perfect!! I would stay here again and again and again. Close to downtown but away from the noise. You can literally sit in the yard overlooking the marsh and riiver and hear complete and utter silence!! Thanks for a great stay!!

Immaculate/Quiet/Large 1BR Riverfront Cottage located within 50 ft. of high tide overlooking the panoramic Beaufort River/ InterCoastal Waterway. Two easy blocks to the new CIty Park, 10 minute walk to the public boat ramp where you can fish, crab, and watch the dolphin work the shrimp. Or launch your boat free.

Walk (20) or Bike (10) to Historic Downtown Beaufort for the morning bagel, Breakfast at Blackstone's, lunch at Plum's, Luther's, or Nippy's. Dine in the evening at Breakwater's, Saltus, or Emily's. Sip the best coffee spe at Port Royal. And don't forget to patronize all the local merchants because you won't find a Target, Starbucks, or Subway, or any other Forturne 500 Retailer downtown. Just the locals.

Swing on the waterfront and watch the Intercoastal/River traffic. Nothing more relaxing. In the evening on the weekends, there is always local talent playing music. If you really have time to spare, take the Historic Beaufort trolley ride.
