Your first thought for luxury coastal living might not be South Carolina, but this low country state has much to present to the discerning high-end palate. You’d be forgiven for thinking of the extensive marshland as offering nothing more than cool ocean breezes and steamy summer nights. Those are facets of the land, absolutely. But they are just one reason why, for decades, the affluent have flocked down south to enjoy the serenity of The Palmetto State.
You’re probably familiar with the state’s more well known coastal cities, but tucked down at the southern end of miles of white sand beaches is a cluster of small towns with an abundant array of amenities. The area surrounding Bluffton, Beaufort, and Hilton Head is home to breathtaking views, critically acclaimed restaurants and a multitude of world class golf courses. There are more than 24 championship courses on Hilton Head alone. If you’ve been contemplating relocating to a warmer climate, whether part time or full time, you should strongly consider these communities that are just across the river from Savannah, Georgia.
