THE LOVELY LOWCOUNTRY HOMES OF PALMETTO BLUFF

Greetings.

“IT IS PLEASANT TO HAVE BEEN TO A PLACE THE WAY THE RIVER WENT.”

Henry David Thoreau penned those words, which perfectly express the pleasant feeling I still retain after having visited a place in South Carolina that was carved over the centuries by the winding May River.

It’s a place where residents have built homes shaded by the Live Oaks and Palmetto Trees…

where it feels like you are light years removed from city living, yet Savannah and Charleston are less than an hour away.

And the architecture is reminiscent of that found in the great Southern coastal towns of Charleston and Savannah, yet it is decidedly more relaxed and casual.
