About The Island...
Immerse yourself in nature on your own private island in the heart of the ACE Basin. This is a rare opportunity to own a portion of one of the most pristine areas in the southeast. Once part of Chisholm Plantation, the 12.8 acre island is surrounded by 500 + acres of marshland and overlooks the Intracoastal Waterway. Located just minutes from public boat landing and the quiet charm of Beaufort, South Carolina, this island hideaway reaches out to you and your dream of quiet seclusion. No gates, golf courses or manicured lawns will inhibit your enjoyment of the peace and solitude of this natural wildlife habitat. ACE Basin Information
As you approach the island by boat through the beautiful estuary of the Ace basin, myriad varieties of bird life can be observed, including ospreys, great blue herons, pelicans and wood storks. Dolphins, minks, deer, otters and raccoons make their home here as well. The waters stir with a plentiful feast of fish, crabs, clams and shrimp.
An existing tidal creek dock leads you across marsh and sand teeming with fiddler crabs to a forest path which winds through live oaks, palmettos, pines and palms. You begin to feel yourself relax as you absorb the serenity of your surroundings. The only sound you hear is the song of the many species of birds that reside here.
A canopy of live oaks provides shelter for the fully furnished 1664 square foot residence. The casual elegance of the dwelling blends with the unspoiled setting to impart the essence of lowcountry living. Architecturally designed in green lowcountry style, the 3-bedroom, 2-bath home provides stunning River and marsh views from every room. Entirely self-sufficient, the island has diesel-generated power and a cistern water collection system.
If you have a sense of adventure and want to experience low-key living at it’s best, this hidden paradise anticipates your arrival. Perfect for a family or corporate retreat, this is a unique chance to embrace your vision of harmony with the environment.
