The history of Islands of Beaufort

In 1998, the vision of Islands of Beaufort – a private gated community – was actualized and based on the lowcountry neighborhood architecture of the home designer William E. Poole.  The property was annexed into the City of Beaufort, which provides complete city services – police, fire, water, electric, sewer, waste pickup and recycling.


Using the backdrop of the woodlands and shoreline of Battery Creek, 196 properties were laid out.  The community was an instant success – all properties were sold by the developer – and in 2005 the Home Owners Association accepted the management of the property.  Currently, 72 families live in the community, 6 lots are under construction and another 8 lots are either going through the review process or with architects. There are currently 34 properties offered for resale, with a total of 102 lots remaining as buildable.
