Newpoint was first created in the 1990s and is one of the first “Traditional Neighborhood Design” developments in the Lowcountry. The neighborhood first began with 130 homes, and was influenced by the coastal communities of the early 20th century. The creators of Newpoint sought to establish a community of homes that would be every bit as striking as those located in Beaufort’s Old Point district, but with all of the modern conveniences expected by the savvy buyers of the current market.
Many of the homes are reminiscent of the historic homes of downtown Charleston and have open floor plans. These floor plans include features such as double porches (screened-in options are available), heartpine floors, tiled bathrooms and crown molding. The plans also feature spacious master bedrooms and kitchens with a variety of appliance options.

Both of these islands offer opportunities for enjoyment of nature lovers. Newpoint has a waterfront park as well a pavilion overlooking the Beaufort River. The neighborhood also has its own deepwater dock with two floats. Residents can enjoy strolls along the tree-lined streets, or jogging beside the river. For those looking to enjoy Beaufort proper, it’s just a short drive (by car or boat) to downtown Bay Street.
