Seabrook is one of the most beautiful plantations on the East Coast. Located south of Charleston, South Carolina the property covers 350 acres of a virtual Eden of semi-tropical landscapes and gardens with substantial water frontage and views for miles. By boat one can be in the Atlantic in a few minutes. By car one can be in downtown Charleston in an hour. The plantation has been operated for hunting and other recreational activities since the 1930’s. The plantation’s main house was built by William Seabrook in 1810 and became the prototype for other builders in the area from that time forward. Mr. Seabrook was one of the first planters who accumulated a fortune by growing Sea Island cotton. He was a pioneer in the use of salt marsh mud as fertilizer and he established a steamboat line that ran between Charleston and Savannah. Today this historic house is the finest of those remaining on Edisto Island. Other improvements include two guest houses, caretaker’s house, equipment sheds, two docks, the dock and tea house, storage sheds, and green houses.
