Located approximately six miles from Hilton Head Island, Belfair is a gated community in a gorgeous lowcountry setting with live oaks, saltwater marshes, and views of the Colleton River. The land that would later become Belfair was originally purchased by William Telfair. He named the property by combining his name with his wife’s name, Betsy Bellinger.
The neighborhood’s Avenue of Oaks entrance is well known and was planted in the 1920s by a later owner named William Swain.
By 1994, the property had been purchased by Belfair Plantation LLC, who moved forward with developing it into a high-end residential community.
At over 1,100 acres, Belfair homes and lots include riverfront property, marsh views, lake views, secluded wooded settings, and golf course homes.
