Show and Tell at DeBordieu!

Show and Tell at DeBordieu !
When I do an office presentation at DeBordieu, located just south of Pawleys Island, South Carolina, I like to start with this infrared satellite photo showing DeBordieu’s borders.
With this photo I demonstrate to potential buyers that DeBordieu stretches 4 miles from the sales office on Hwy 17, to the ocean. To the north and west of DeBordieu is Arcadia Plantation, of which DeBordieu used to be a part, and Prince George, our “sister” community. To the south is Hobcaw Barony, thousands of acres never to be developed, and North Inlet, one of the most pristine estuaries on the East Coast, and some very fertile fishing grounds.

The photo also helps demonstrate DeBordieu’s low density development philosophy. Originally, DeBordieu was zoned for 2500 families on our 2700 acres. When the property changed hands, the density was cut in half to just 1250 families. While most developments in the 80s and 90s were trying to squeeze every building site they could into their plan, DeBordieu’s big number was cut, allowing for lower density, and larger homesites in the newest communities of Patewood North and Patewood South.
You drive about a mile into DeBordieu before you ever see the first house. I’ve been told that as some owners drive that mile, through our own conservation easement, never to be developed, the stress and tension they’ve brought in with them from HWY 17 just seems to melt into the forest.
Yep….it’s true….a picture can definitely say 1000 words. This one sure can! Call or email me if you have any questions.
There’s never been a better time to consider purchasing property at DeBordieu!
