As Beaufort County grows, the area North of the Broad (where the town of Beaufort, SC is) and South of the Broad (Hilton Head and Bluffton) continue to merge. That goes for real estate, too. More and more Realtors North of the Broad are making sales South of the Broad (SOB), and visa versa. I have made two in Bluffton these past few months. So, I figure it's a good use of time to familiarize myself with as many communities SOB as I can. Last week, i was invited by Shannon Thompson of Hampton Lake to visit that fine neighborhood. It was a great visit. This 906-acre neighborhood will be home to about 900 residences when it is built out. The amenities are like nothing I have ever seen, at least not in Beaufort. -- 340-acre Nature Preserve -- 7 miles of navigable waterways, and 15 miles of ...
