Palmetto Bluff Real Estate and Information

The rest of the remaining land has been designated managed forests and wetlands. Palmetto Bluff real estate features homes and POA fees in the uppermost price tier in the area.
The idea of Palmetto Bluff is to create a residential village with shops, restaurants, services, and recreation facilities all within the gates to the community. Home sites are 1/4 acre to 8 acres in size, and family compounds will range from 14 to 31 acres.

Palmetto Bluff is an excellent choice for buyers who are looking a few years out. This upscale community is approximately 80% the size of Hilton Head Island but will have approximately 3,000 homes at completion and a very low density. By creating multiple villages, the developer, Crescent Resources, will also be creating a “green community” where people can walk and bike to multiple activities, restaurants, and more. A variety of options are available including vacation rental income properties. Important note – Golf is optional.
