Lowcountry Boil on the Bluff

Pinckney Retreat and East West Communities hosted a traditional Lowcountry Boil on the bluff at the historic plantation, located off of Parris Island Gateway on SC-280. Pinckney Retreat is still home to the original 1736 marshfront Tabby House and antebellum gardens that have been restored for current residents use and enjoyment in the development. Southern Living custom home builder, Allen Patterson, is now the featured builder on site. Patterson specializes in hand-crafted homes designed by local architects, Allison Ramsey. The certified master builder recently broke ground on the Coosaw River Cottage, which is the featured model for sale at Pinckney Retreat.

"I love Wendy Pollitzer’s writing. Her instincts are remarkable, her nose for truth infallible. I can’t pick up a journal or magazine that she’s written for without going straight to the table of contents in search of her piece. What I think is so interesting about her work is that she really believes in what she’s doing, in getting it right. She’s very, very good. "— Pat Conroy (Prince of Tides, South of Broad) 1945-2016
