RARE OPPORTUNITY TO OWN ONE OF BEAUFORT'S MOST HISTORIC AND GRACEFUL HOMES.Originally built in 1898 by William Waterhouse as a gift for his bride, it was known at that time in Beaufort as the '' Wedding Gift House''. Located in the Historic Point neighborhood, it is surrounded by a wealth of Beaufort's antique homes. This home is a pristine Victorian Era gem. Its sweeping wraparound veranda overlooks lush gardens, mature landscaping and provides river views. Sweet afternoon breezes come from the Beaufort River, part of the Intracoastal Waterway, just a block away.Part of the rich history of this home includes 25 years as The Old Point Inn. The present owner closed the Inn in 2011 and returned it to its status as a private residence.
