Beaufort House Rental Photos and Description
Country Living On The Water, 3 Bedroom, 3 Bath, 3800 Sq. Ft. Fire Pit
If you picture yourself sitting on a screened in porch, sipping your favorite beverage, and gazing across the expansive water views, while being cooled by the sea breeze, this is the house for you.
This 5 acre secluded waterfront estate sits on a high bluff with expansive water and marsh views. The gorgeous shingle and glass home features an open and airy floor plan. The massive rooms, featuring 14 ft. ceilings and large windows, allow your eyes to wander out to the natural beauty surrounding the house. The home was previously featured in a magazine for it's architectural beauty and has now been renovated by the current owners, who design part time. Their other home, a NYC loft, is often used for celebrity birthday parties, movie premiere after-parties, numerous photo-shoots, and was the set for the 2014 John Varvatos campaign. The same attention to detail and forward-thinking design is evident throughout this gorgeous home. There are 6 wood burning fireplaces, including one in the master bath, master bedroom, and in the gourmet/commercial kitchen, reclaimed wood floors, crown-moulding and trim, American Clay walls, and designer antique furnishings are just a few of the distinguishing features that set this home apart from the others in this area.
The house boasts 2 screened porches, with floor to ceiling screens, allowing for unobstructed views. One of the screened porches is off of the master bedroom, while the other is an extension of the living room, allowing the porch to also have 14 ft. ceilings. The home enjoys the sought after south eastern exposure, ideal for enjoying the prevailing south eastern sea breeze.
The house is surrounded by palm trees, live oaks, and tropical landscaping, all effortlessly watered by a 6 zone irrigation system, from the property’s well. A private dock allows for breathtaking views of the sunrises and sunsets, and is the perfect place to get closer to the dolphins that sometimes visit to snack on the local shrimp. This 5 acre private paradise is bordered by Heritage Preserve, a sacred 20 acre protected forest, that was once home to the Coosaw Native Americans. Nature and wildlife are abundant in this pristine forest setting that the house is nestled into. You will find yourself peacefully drifting asleep to the sounds of the singing forest.
A brick path from the back door leads to a massive brick fire-pit, which can be enjoyed year round.
There is a great community boat launch / small marina w/ slips under 1 mile from our home.
With only being 9 miles from historic downtown Beaufort, this slice of paradise is stunningly unique and it’s calming effect truly cannot be avoided by anyone who visits.

About Kevin OMalley
My wife and I moved to Beaufort from Hermosa Beach, California. We love the peace, beauty, and water access of our home. We hope you enjoy our house as much as we do.
Kevin OMalley purchased this house in 2012
Why Kevin OMalley chose Beaufort
We sold our home (also a vrbo home) in California. We left in our Airstream with our 4 dogs and drove around the country in search of our next house. Having never been to South Carolina we were excited to get to Charleston for the weather (it was March). We loved the city but we wanted something smaller with less traffic. We settled in Beaufort. I wanted water and great weather and my wife wanted land in the forest and serenity. We feel very lucky to live where we do.
