Live in the Lowcountry

May River Preserve


The Lowcountry’s newest private gated community has the area’s best location. On historic May River Road in Old Bluffton – less than 15 minutes fro the beaches of Hilton Head Island and within 20 minutes to the historic downtowns of Beaufort, SC and Savannah, GA.


​In addition to your 1/2 to 1 acre, park-like yard and the limitless outdoor adventures the area provides, the heart of May River Preserve will be found at the community’s planned pavilion and pool. Rough-hewn beams in the outdoor kitchen, open and fresh air and crystal blue refreshing water is the vision for the social center and gathering place.

We believe connecting with nature and neighbors creates authentic relationships, which is the heart of every true neighborhood. We are proud to offer an array of amenities suited to all tastes; come see what we have in store for you and your loved ones.

Real Estate

Your May River Preserve home will be one of inspired design and lasting character. Imagine porches, lanterns, shutters, and breezeways. Our lake homes in SC are authentically Lowcountry with a feel, unique to only our neighborhood.

Your home will be centered around a landscape that includes 250 acres of parkland, a planned pavilion and pool, ponds, trails, and awe-inspiring natural beauty. Like the grand oaks that welcome you, all that you enjoy in May River Preserve reflects the best of life in Bluffton and the Lowcountry.
