The community itself evokes images of Southern charm and grace with its low country feel. Broad porches and open floor plans invite the beauty of the area to come inside.

The history of this area tells of a legendary clash between Patriots and Spanish loyalists on August 8, 1813 on the Bells River.

Everything involved in the design, planning and development of Waterman’s Bluff was inspired by the history of Eleazar Waterman’s plantation and the sheer beauty of the land and waterways.
