Edisto Island, SC Homes for Sale

Go back in time on Edisto Island, by far the least commercialized of the Charleston area’s beaches. A truly old-fashioned beach community, the island offers a small selection of authentic seafood restaurants and local shops. The island’s Botany Bay Plantation is a nearly 5,000 acre tract of land managed by the Department of Natural Resources. Visitors can explore the plantation house’s ruins, slave quarters, sunflower fields, an expansive lake, and two miles of beach.

The Town of Edisto, named for the Edistow Indians, is approximately 45 miles south of Charleston on roads of mosscovered oaks, working farms, and historic plantation estates. Antebellum cash crops included rice, indigo, and Sea Island cotton – one of the finest produced. Many of the elegant houses and plantations remaining today are listed in the National Register of Historic Places. The 2,430 residents take pride in the island’s pristine beaches and landscape, and promote limited development. The median home value is $388,600.
