Edisto Island Community Spotlight: Bailey Island Club

By
Real Estate Agent with Edisto Realty Edisto Beach,SC DiscoverEdisto.com

Dolphin in Bailey CreekBailey Island Club should be the text book example of how to develop a pristine barrier island.  Bailey has a rich history that makes it very special to Edisto.  Originally home to two plantations: Bailey and Mikell.  Both the Baileys and Mikells were very prominent Edisto families. 

Bailey Island is just over 1000 acres surrounded by the South Edisto River on two sides, the St. Pierre, and Bailey Creek.  There will only 32 waterfront lots with 410 acres in a permanent conservation easement that all members are allowed to use for various recreational activities.  The easement is controled by the SC Nature Conservancy and is part of the ACE Basin.  There is also a community boat ramp and dock on Bailey Creek.

Bailey Island

 

Bailey is located in the heart of the ACE Basin.  The island is covered with ancient Live Oaks and Palmettos.  The high bank frontage is nearly 20 feet above sea level.  There are incredible views in every direction including some ocean views.  The water depth is deep enough to accomodate any size boat and has direct ocean access with no bridges or "no wake" zones.  The open ocean is less than 2 miles away.  Bailey Island is Charleston County's southern most barrier island.  Colleton County begins just across the South Edisto River.

Charleston is about a 40 minute drive and Edisto Beach is less than 15 minutes away.  The entrance to Bailey is located at 8705 Raccoon Island Road.

Good page and you are absolutely correct about  Bailey development being a model for coastal development. I, of course, remember when there was nothing at all on Bailey Island. Now I see a couple of houses from my place on the cornfield, but nothing like what I see when I look a little to North East at Middleton. Bailey is a good example of less being more.

There is not a cemetary on Bailey that I know of. I have never seen any head stones or any markings on the old plats.  I would not be surprised if there is one however.
