$11.87 Million Cauley’s Creek Compound in Bluffton, South Carolina

$11,875,000 | 2011 | 8,898 Sq. Ft. | 7 Beds | 10 Baths | 5.27 Acres
945 Mount Pelia Rd, Bluffton, SC 29910

Strategically built along the banks of Cauley’s Creek on a salt water flat that’s every angler’s dream, 945 Mount Pelia Road represents a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to acquire a legacy property in the heart of Palmetto Bluff’s storied landscape. Located within Barge Landing and intentionally designed to promote privacy, togetherness, and connection with nature, this unparalleled 6-structure compound fully embodies the spirit of Jim Mozley’s original vision for Palmetto Bluff. Panoramic deep water views can be enjoyed throughout the 5+ acre property, which is positioned adjacent to 120 acres of lands in an easement with North American Land Institute—a rarity that cannot be overstated. A private pathway leading to one of the original barge landings utilized by the Varn Turpentine Cattle Company, which transported cattle to Savannah dating back to the 1920s, adds additional depth to the property’s character.

Standing at just over 4,000 square feet, the understated 2 bedroom, 2.5 bathroom main house takes advantage of views from every room. Anchored by a custom floor-to-ceiling fireplace surround crafted from local oyster shells, the living room flows into an adjacent kitchen and breakfast nook area that exudes coastal elegance. Features including a large mudroom and laundry area with a dedicated dog washing station underscore the thoughtful integration of liveable luxuries throughout the home. On the second level, a spacious primary suite opens onto a historic sleeping porch, blending indoor comforts with the tranquility of nature. A finished third floor leads to a rooftop “widow’s walk”—or open-air deck—that offers uninterrupted views of Cauley’s Creek and the Savannah shipping channel in the distance.

A spacious office located above the garage offers a quiet retreat for work or creativity. Currently utilized as an office and equipped with a full bath, this flexible space could easily double as a studio. A beautifully-appointed retreat that adds to the property’s multi-generational appeal, this 3 bedroom, 3 bathroom guest home is ideally suited for long-term stays. Featuring an open floor plan designed to foster connection, the bright kitchen flows into an open living area with vaulted ceilings and exposed beams, comfortable bedrooms, and a spacious screened porch. Historic charm meets family fun in this pair of rustic bunk houses, which provide unique spaces for entertainment, homeschool studies, sleepovers, and more. A dream zone for family and friends, these structures are outfitted with wet bars, billiards, triple-decker bunks, and a nostalgic all-American ambiance. Just outside the bunkhouses, a life-size chess board and natural paths offer further opportunities for enjoyment and exploration.

The estate’s outdoor offerings are vast and varied, including an elevated pool area and pool house equipped with a full bath. Attached to the pool house is a covered grill area and outdoor kitchen, optimizing the space for outdoor entertainment. A private path paved with crushed oyster shells weaves through the property to the edge of the marsh, culminating in a private, resort-like beach area. A fire pit positioned near a retro airstream trailer provides a cozy gathering spot to enjoy the landscape—and a s’more or two. Properties of this caliber, with such a rich tapestry of history, privacy, and natural beauty, seldom come to market. 945 Mount Pelia Road is the essence of what Palmetto Bluff was always envisioned to be – a place where generations can comfortably come together to forge lasting memories against the backdrop of the tidal waterways of the Lowcountry.
