Beresford Hall is an exclusive gated community with custom built homes on large estate size lots ranging from .5 to 3 acres. The subdivision of approximately 200 home sites has 565 moss-draped grand oaks and encompasses more than 600 acres.
The subdivision offers more than one can imagine: a community boat ramp, dock, five parks, ball field, basketball court, dog & play park, crabbing dock, postal village, campfire pit, picnic areas and eight miles of walking trails and sidewalks. In addition, The Ruins is a wonderful place for residents to gather and enjoy the clubhouse (with two kitchens) and edgeless pool.
The subdivision is divided into three different sections: the neo-traditional Village, the park and square settlement, and the rural parish sites with no curb cuts. The developer said this would allow for buyers to have a choice if they want to be very sociable or if they would rather a more solitary life style in the woods. If building, it is a requirement to have an architect as well as a landscape architect.
The developer, Greenwood Development Corporation, modeled the subdivision after coastal fishing villages like Isle of Hope near Savannah. They truly developed a serene, well-thought out community!
One side note: Archaeologists found historical artifacts dating back to 1705 when the original owner, Richard Beresford, resided on the plantation. Source: Jim Parker with the Post and Courier (Charleston.net)
