Waterfront, Film Sets & Live Oaks
When Hollywood movie scouts need the quintessential Southern setting, they select beautiful Beaufort. Tucked among South Carolina’s Sea Islands, this 300-year-old town with antebellum mansions and moss-draped live oaks has been the backdrop for such celebrated blockbusters as Forrest Gump, Prince of Tides, and The Big Chill. Shell Point allows you to live in the lovely area of Historic Beaufort. Imagine water and marsh as far as the eye can see in any direction, moss-draped live oaks and native palmetto trees lining the streets. They serve as constant reminders that you have arrived in this magical coastal area of South Carolina we affectionately call the Lowcountry. Living in Shell Point will allow you to experience the Beaufort, Port Royal, and Sea Islands region where you will find a veritable haven of history, heritage, arts, and culture all wrapped in friendly, warm Southern hospitality. Breathtaking scenery and a temperate year-round climate provide the opportunity for tennis, golf, fishing, and plenty of outdoor living. If history beckons, you will find days full of adventure in downtown Beaufort, neighboring Port Royal, and St. Helena Island where you can witness the rich history and culture of this fascinating coastal region.
