Palmetto Bluff – SC Private Gated Club Community | Water View Home

Real Estate

Palmetto Bluff Screened porches ensure evening dining stretches into night.

For close-knit homes lining picturesque streets, the six “Town” neighborhoods features residences that are the Southern ideal.

By contrast, those who crave a bit more privacy will find it in the four “Country” neighborhoods which offer up to 30-acre parcels which lie outside the Village areas and emphasize privacy, natural surroundings and, to the extent desired, seclusion.

Yet all are within a stroll, or bike ride to recreation, shopping, dining and other facilities. Send me more information about Palmetto Bluff!
