If you’re ready for “home” and “respite” to be synonymous, seeking a luxurious space to entertain guests, or wishing you had a waterside view to wake up to every morning, there may be a place for you in the Lowcountry.

Lady Slipper Island.

Named for its shoe-like shape, this island is truly a haven on the marshes. The community’s lush landscaping also brings to mind the orchid sharing the same name. As you approach the surrounding community of Belfair, you’re greeted by a scene out of a fairytale—slips of light shining through dozens of oaks that arch over the road. Follow the verdant tunnel and you’ll discover the main stretch of the small island with its spacious homes.

Although Belfair’s homes feature modern architecture, they bear a resemblance to the plantation houses that still stand in the area. Belfair was once a plantation named for owners William Telfair and wife Betsey Bellinger. Over 200 years later, Belfair is now a small, tight-knit, prestigious community built for rest and adventure alike.

Life on Lady Slipper Island in Belfair

Belfair has a thriving, acclaimed golf community. If golf fits into your lifestyle, living on Lady Slipper Island allows you to tap right into the heart of the sport. Here, you’ll have the opportunity to master the technique and skill of the game in an environment fit for a PGA professional. The Belfair golfing community is even managed by Ken Kosak, a Class A member of the PGA.

Choosing to settle on Lady Slipper Island brings more than beautiful views and a distinguished community. The nearby town of Bluffton is rich in culture and history. Its many artisan coffee shops, restaurants, museums, and historical sites are only a short drive away from Lady Slipper Island’s solitude and riverside breezes.

In the Belfair community, Lady Slipper Island offers maximum privacy as well as the ability to entertain guests in style. We’re thrilled to share that one of the houses that lines the shore, 30 Lady Slipper Drive, just went under contract. Take a virtual tour of this gorgeous property with us now!

Much of a home’s appeal is in the curbside appearance, and this island home doesn’t disappoint. Beautifully landscaped and maintained, this three-story refuge gives the onlooker a sense of both luxury and comfort. The first floor of this magnificent home is elevated, leaving room for a garage and golf cart bay below. The lower level is covered in ivy, which lends the home a striking natural look while maintaining an air of elegance.

The front doors open upon an open-concept living space that is perfect for entertaining a multitude of guests or relaxing in the living area in the sunlight filtering through the waterfront-facing windows. The cook’s kitchen includes professional appliances and plenty of counter space—including a view from the island. In this featured article in The Breeze magazine, Randolph Stewart points out the emphasis the home places upon embracing the natural elements of the island, stating, “From space to space there is virtually nowhere that you do not have close and long views of nature, the marsh edge, the river and the land beyond in the distance.”

The master suite is located on the ground floor with access to the grand back porch. Waking in the morning or relaxing before bed has never been so good! The porch is the perfect place to read, meditate, or have meaningful conversations with those you love most. The master bathroom reflects the home’s emphasis on relaxation and includes a spacious jetted tub and walk-in shower with plenty of natural light.
