Description: Beauloft is in a building that was built circa 1890 as a general store. The retail space below later became a hardware store and is currently Beaufort Clothing Company. Through the years the second story space Beauloft occupies was office and warehouse space. The beautiful heart pine floors, twelve foot ceilings, original windows, transoms and heavy wood molding reflect the style of a bygone era. The full renovation with completely new bathrooms, large closets, granite counter tops and modern appliances offer all the modern comforts and conveniences. It is the ideal blend of old and new. Beauloft is professionally decorated with warm colors, comfortable furniture and a low country botanical theme. The giant windows that surround the great room and gallery hall open for you to enjoy the street scene below and let in the breeze of the long temperate season off the waters of the Beaufort River.
