Edisto’s Seabrook Plantation

Edisto’s Seabrook Plantation

This is the historic William Seabrook House. Located on Steamboat Creek, the property lies just south of Charleston, South Carolina on Edisto Island. While tales of Edisto Island ghosts are many, it is unknown whether or not this property has ghosts of its own.

 The property has majestic natural views and covers of Spanish Moss, surrounded by water measuring at approximately forty feet deep. In case the single-island life does not meet expectation, the beautiful islands of Kiawah and Seabrook are only a short boat ride away.

Built in 1810 by William Seabrook, the Federal-style plantation comes complete with a grand double-staircase designed by James Hoban, the architect of the White House.

In addition to the gorgeous main house, the property holds two guest houses, two docks, a caretaker’s house, a tea house and dock, and greenhouses. The vast property has been managed for hunting and recreational activities since the early 1930’s, and was originally a Sea Island cotton plantation.
