Nestled along the Atlantic Ocean and adjacent to the North Inlet National Estuarine Reserve, one of the most pristine and protected estuaries in the world and the third largest by area on the East Coast, DeBordieu Colony is a gated oceanfront planned community with low density and private golf, tennis, fitness and beach club facilities, magnificent undisturbed views of thousands of acres of creeks and marsh and private access to the Atlantic Ocean. The community is securely buffered by Hobcaw Barony, a 17,000-acre undeveloped estate owned and protected by the Belle W Baruch Foundation to one side and Historic Plantations and Land Trusts on the other. Located on the historic Waccamaw Neck along the Atlantic Ocean, this land has been treasured since its earliest inhabitants for its abundant wildlife, its relationship to the marshes, wetlands, river and ocean and for its serene and peaceful forests. Through thoughtful stewardship and basic respect, these features remain largely intact and undisturbed.

The historic seaport of Georgetown is nearby while Charleston can be reached in little over an hour.
