Palmetto Bluff is a large and very private low-density community with seemingly endless amenities. The settlement is the largest waterfront property on the East Coast, and it is continuously evolving as both a vibrant community and as a wildlife preserve. The neighborhood within remains surrounded by untouched wildlife, rivers, and marshes, and the residents and operators of this community take responsibility for ensuring that this area remains as unspoiled by human development as possible. It sits on a 20,000-acre tract, of which 6,500 acres were originally set aside as a preserved forest. Since the original development of the property, another 734 acres have been added to the conservation effort.
The Bluff has a rich history, beginning as far back as 10,000 B.C. The oldest artifacts found here date back to this date, and since then, Native Americans are known to have harvested oysters and fish in the May River. Archaeologists continue to find oyster shells, fragments of clay pots, stone tools, and other remnants that connect the area to the prehistoric people who inhabited the land. But when Jean Ribaut arrived in 1562, the land seemed to be uninhabited. In 1730, a British naval officer, Admiral George Lord Anson, purchased the property, and eventually sold his estate as separate plantations.
In 1902, the land was purchased by a wealthy New York Banker, and the area became one of luxurious entertainment. A four-story home, located in what is now the Village Square, overlooked the May River, and included a lavish ballroom, a library, servants’ quarters, and many guest bedrooms. However, this great mansion burned down in 1926, and the distraught owner sold the property and moved back to New York City.
The property next saw an important change-of-hands in 1937, when it was purchased for its timber reserves. However, the company which purchased the land realized its greater potential, and created a conservation plan that can be credited for the tract’s continued conservation to this day.
The Bluff is located in the Lowcountry town of Bluffton, South Carolina. Bluffton is popular for its eclectic “Old Town” district, and for its pristine views of the May River. Bluffton retains an authentic coastal village character, and has been called “the last true coastal village of the South.” The Bluff is set off from Bluffton and isolated as a true community of its own by miles of beautiful, natural countryside and forests.
The weather is consistent with that of the rest of coastal South Carolina. It has a humid, subtropical climate, and receives significant rainfall year-round. Winters in the Bluffton area are mild, and August is month with the most rain. Snow very rarely occurs in the region.
Wilson Village is a small “downtown” area, inspired by Southern coastal towns. This waterfront village is home to restaurants, a spa, and several small boutiques, as well as a grocery market and a bookstore/ café.

Palmetto Bluff, with its rich history, carefully preserved by the conservationist community, is a landmark in itself. Every home or build site within actually funds the organization that works to protect the natural resources found on the property. From the beginning, developers of the tract recognized that the value of the property was in its natural beauty, and the richness of its landscape. The development team resolved to protect this vast sea island environment, while creating a superior settlement to allow people to take in and cherish the landscape. Although this land is an important landmark in itself, it is also located near several other landmark locations.
