When you need 5 bedrooms, you really need 5 bedrooms!  This one year old home in popular Shadow Moss has just that: FIVE REAL bedrooms.   Oh, that's five bedrooms PLUS a loft area upstairs, plus a sun room downstairs, plus a formal dining room, and with a huge family room for getting everyone together.

 
The unique stone front is a real eye catcher, so come on and let's go in the front door...
 
 
As you walk in, the formal dining room is on your right and the family room is before you.  There are some that think a … (1 comments)

Bring Your Horses!
You've been looking for a long time for something just like this:
 a small cottage on almost 5 acres with a small barn, a 60 ft. round pen, and paddock.

1317 Morgandollar Road 
 

Lot lines are approximate measurement of the property, but we do have an exact plot.
 
 
The cottage is in the process of being restored, and both the interior and exterior will have new paint and sanded hardwood floors. The three bedrooms and two baths are being renovated. And -- when you're done working outside -- you'll appreciate the new heat … (2 comments)

Beaufort SC Real Estate Closing Attorneys

beaufort real estate agent: Encouragement from BeaufortHomeTeam! - 09/07/12 07:54 AM
 
Just a note of encouragement from BeaufortHomeTeam!  There is one stat I want to point out as we wrap up this third quarter in Beaufort South Carolina.  The stat is called the Absorption Rate.  With regard to inventory, if there were no new listings, how long would it take at the current pace of sales to clear the existing inventory?  We have gone from a high this year of over 42 months (3 1/2 years!!) to right at 12 months and still trending downward.


This is the strongest year for real estate sales in Beaufort South Carolina since … (0 comments)
