DeBordieu Colony

DeBordieu Colony Homes for sale are highly sought after in a coastal community committed to keeping the original natural environment in tact as much as possible. The 2700 acre upscale development encourages a sense of community with a variety of activities planned at all times including traditional oyster roasts, Friday evening get-togethers, and formal dances. The DeBordieu Colony upholds the beauty of the area that caused  the Marquis de Lafayette to give its name D’aborde Dieu which means “borderland of God”.
Like Pawleys Island, the DeBordieu area was first settled by rice planters who would seasonally relocate from their palatial riverfront plantation homes to the coast in order to get away from the fever which killed many in the region. It wasn’t until later that the fever was identified as malaria and the eradication of the mosquitos responsible for the disease ended that era of illness. Of all of the beach communities inhabited by these “rice barons” DeBordieu was probably the most populous and the most popular.

The amenities offered in this high end development as exceptional as one would expect in a community with multi-million dollar oceanfront homes. For avid golfers there is an amazing Pete Dye designed 18-hole golf course and Georgian style clubhouse. There are ten tennis courts, some of which are lighted for playing night games. The pro shop, onsite pros, and tournaments for residents just add to the quality of life here. Beach lovers will love the oceanfront beach club and pool with its own gazebo bar while the Blue Heron Beach Grill serves up live entertainment with beachfront dining.

For the discerning real estate investor or homeowner DeBordieu Colony land for sale offers the opportunity to own a part of history in one of the oldest settlements in the country while enjoying the natural beauty that has been preserved for centuries.
