About The Property

Historic Riverfront Estate in Yemassee, SC


When the largest undeveloped waterfront parcel in South Carolina came to market last year in a rare and widely publicized sale by private owners, the property’s future, along with the future of the surrounding area came into question.

The brokers at Holcombe, Fair & Lane recognize that the sale or lease of any property, especially along the Coastal Plain directly impacts the quality of its natural and commercial resources for future generations. Rarely has the area seen such an example.

Empowered by a combination of federal and private funding, The Nature Conservancy, a globally-recognized environmental organization, secured a contract and engaged the Open Land Trust in an agreement to place a conservation easement on the entire property. This easement will protect the property’s conservation values through limits on use, development, and subdivision.  

Gregorie Neck will soon be the newest extension of two nationally recognized conservation jewels: the ACE Basin (Ashepoo-Combahee-Edisto) and SOLO (Southern Lowcountry) Basin, comprising 500,000 acres of preserved lands.

Rarely does a plantation property possess so many superlatives.  And rarely is it turnkey.  Such is the case at 1415 Gregorie Neck Road, situated on its own 4,400-acre peninsula (the “neck”) bordered by the Coosawhatchie and Tulifinny rivers of coastal South Carolina.  Located just an hour north of Savannah, the incomparable Gregorie Neck is one of the last great places on the Eastern Seaboard. Gregorie Neck could be a prime candidate for a conservation easement.

With eight miles of waterfront and marshfront, extensive old growth forest, fishing ponds and impoundments, a deepwater dock on the Tulifinny, impeccable gardens and grounds, and a stately brick mansion built with maximum exposure to a sweeping river vista, Gregorie Neck is the premiere Lowcountry estate – the perfect recreational retreat for family and friends, combining undisturbed tranquility with easy access.

Designed in the early 1930s by architect Willis Irvin, the meticulously renovated main house stands on a high bluff of ancient live oaks and panoramic views.  It boasts a grand entrance portico on the landward side and a spacious sunroom spanning the river side.  Each bedroom and gathering space is oriented to the water and prevailing breeze.  Across the Tulifinny, the distant view of wooded shoreline is safeguarded forever by a conservation easement.

Downriver within sight of the main house, the current owners have built a beautifully appointed game house – complete with full kitchen, gun room and library.  Its great room features a vaulted ceiling handcrafted from giant beams.  At the center rises a towering stone fireplace, open on both sides, creating a dramatic venue for riverside entertaining.  Upriver lie two attractive caretaker houses, just beyond the serpentine garden walls. More recent improvements include an impressive 16-vehicle climate-controlled garage across from an eight-horse stable connected to 15 acres of horse pasture with three-board fencing.

Gregorie Neck's platform for recreation and sporting activities is legendary. Multiple members of the same families have cared for the plantation for generations, managing the mature hardwood and pine forests for optimal quail, turkey and deer habitat. A sporting favorite on the cusp of being reinvigorated bears mentioning - that of waterfowl hunting. 90± acres of tidal impoundments and 30 acres of old shrimp ponds currently exist, supporting myriad duck species each winter. With the infrastructure and power already in place, duck numbers could be magnified substantially with enhanced management and minimal investment.

Gregorie Neck affords limitless possibilities for exploring the wild waterways of two nationally recognized conservation jewels: the ACE Basin (Ashepoo-Combahee-Edisto) and SOLO (Southern Lowcountry) Basin, comprising 500,000 acres of preserved lands.
