Beaufort is a coastal area on the western side of the Atlantic Ocean. Scattered barrier islands, rivers, estuaries, inlets, bays, and marshes add to the water-filled vistas and views that make for great paintings and photographs. It is no wonder this area is filled with so many talented landscape painters and galleries with breathtaking sunsets and more. Waterfront property is in high demand in the Lowcountry. Whether you are searching for marsh front homes, deep water lots or beach front property, Hometown Realty will strive to find you the best site available for your new home.


The Lowcountry of Beaufort County is made up of many islands on the Atlantic coast. The intercoastal waterway gives the area many marsh areas with oyster reefs, mud banks and beautiful fields of aquatic grass which stay green year-round. For marshfront properties check our local marsh-front listings in Beaufort, Lady’s Island, Dataw Island, Harbor Island and St. Helena Island.


Some homes are located on deep water lots which are plots of land located directly on the banks of a deep water estuary or waterway. Most of these lots are paired with a boat dock where you can moor a boat. These docks are also great for fishing, backyard barbecues, boating, and kayaking. Hometown Realty has many deep water lots available as well as existing homes on the deep water and tidal creeks.


Some of the barrier islands in the Beaufort area offer lovely sandy beaches for relaxing, swimming, and fishing. If you enjoy the lovely views and beachfront lifestyle, there are several areas that are great for retirement, from the local resort and retirement islands to secluded private beachfront land for building a home near the ocean.  If your desire is to live on a barrier island or beachfront property Hometown Realty can assist you in locating your new home or property.
