Belfair Plantation Real Estate
Living in Belfair Plantation: Amenities, Real Estate and Lifestyle
Welcome to Belfair Plantation
On the banks of the Colleton River in Bluffton, South Carolina just a few miles from the bridge to Hilton Head Island, Belfair Plantation gives you all that you would expect from a first rate private golf community in the Lowcountry: World class golf, substantial amenities, magnificent scenery and beautiful homes. It does so without pretentions often associated with the golf communities. The atmosphere – informal and laid back, not opulent and elite – makes it appealing to all from retirees to working empty nesters to families with young children.
Why You Belong in Belfair Plantation
Belfair Plantation beautifully exemplifies the “Lowcountry Lifestyle.” A common thread among real estate developments in the region is a deep reverence for the natural environment and you witness that immediately upon entering Belfair Plantation where its “Avenue of Oaks” – a half-mile long tunnel of beautiful moss-draped live oak trees – greets you and guides you in.
Two 18-hole championship golf courses obviously appeal to the real estate buyer interested in a private golf club community, but Belfair is not so narrowly focused on golf that other interests are neglected. Its amenity package features facilities not always associated with golf communities like softball fields and basketball courts, giving it a lively, family friendly neighborhood atmosphere. Belfair Plantation is a place where you get to know your neighbors. Of approximately 450 homes on the property over 300 are primary residences.
The location is among the best in the entire Hilton Head Island/Bluffton area. Just outside the gate you are at the epicenter of greater Bluffton and a short drive to the beaches on Hilton Head Island. Meanwhile, inside the gate is a private oasis on the river.
