Downtown Bluffton Real Estate & Homes for Sale

In Downtown Bluffton, history is everywhere you look. Eight pre-Civil War homes and two churches stand within the town's boundaries, and the historic Old Town district still preserves much that same character. As such, many of the homes for sale in the Downtown Bluffton are inspired by the rich southern-colonial architectural history of the area.

Metal roofs, white clapboard, wrap-around porches, and double-hung windows keep buildings cool on hot summer days. While the exterior shutters, raised foundations, and steeply pitched roofs keep residents dry under the refreshing rain.

Many homes in Downtown Bluffton, and especially those of the newer developments in the northwest, display excellent southern Lowcountry architectural details. Tall doors, "haint blue" shutters, dormer windows, and spacious rooms all contribute to the cool, composed aesthetic.

These homes come in a number of southern colonial variations: like 1.5 story, side-gabled cottages; tall Charleston single-houses with long, second-story side-facing balconies; and cross-gabled or saltbox farmhouses.

Moving into the heart of Old Town, visitors can find the same southern colonial architecture, but in a variety of mixed-use configurations. These include commercial properties with residential, townhomes above and behind the long second-story balconies.

Townhomes here don't stay on the market for long, making perfect vacation homes and presenting commercial opportunities of their own.
