Carefully planned and managed land development resulted in the preservation of significance natural areas while provide substantial benefits to both man and nature. Bailey Island is located on the southwestern border of Charleston County along the South Edisto River, is recognized as one of the most significant properties in the ACE Basin. The island is dominated by a globally imperiled forest type, the South Atlantic Inland Maritime Forest.
The Maritime Forest on Bailey Island ranks among the finest examples of this natural community on the entire Southeastern cost of the United States. Working with a private developer, KBS was able to provide 32 homesites while preserving 403 of the 671 acres island. Island amenities include miles of meandering trails with forest and marshland views, a community dock and boat launch, freshwater fishing ponds, and caretaker’s cottage.
