Luxury Living

Three communities that define style.


FORD PLANTATION (Richmond Hill, GA)

  • Nestled alongside the Ogeechee River,  the Ford Plantation sets a standard of excellence for Southern elegance.
  • Located just 18 miles from historic Savannah, the 1,800-acre private community sits upon the property once owned by Henry and Clara Ford.  The residential and sporting sanctuary offers quarter-acre to 10-acre plus lots with a variety of floor plans to suit any taste.  Many of these lots are situated on the picturesque Ogeechee River and Lake Clara.
  • Many of the homes capture the feel of the old South, with their sweeping porches, French doors, and 12-foot ceilings.  Guest cottages and boathouses are a beautiful addition to many of these stately homes that welcome friends with oak-lined pebbled driveways.
  • Homeowners enjoy an active lifestyle at Ford Plantation. The newly renovated Pete Dye Golf Course was named on the “Top 100 Best Residential Courses 2016” by Golfweek magazine. 
  • Residents also have access to a staff of licensed professional guides to experience some of the best fishing in the Lowcountry straight from Ford’s Marina. Shooting, equestrian, swim and tennis facilities complete the luxurious amenities at the exclusive retreat.

PALMETTO BLUFF (Bluffton, SC)

  • With its live oaks and quiet river views, Palmetto Bluff is a community that takes residents back to a time of meandering sidewalks and gracious living.
  • Located in historic Bluffton, South Carolina, Palmetto Bluff offers owners a neighborhood setting or exclusive privacy.  From cozy cottages to expansive plantation-inspired living, homes boast large fireplaces, verandas, and wrap-around screened porches that make taking in a sunset extraordinary. 
  • Residents soak in adventure found along the May River. Paddle boarding, kayaking, and canoeing are a part of life at Palmetto Bluff.  Fishing is an obvious past time that residents can enjoy, whether it is an inland waterway or a trip offshore.
  • The May River Golf Club is a beautiful par-72 Jack Nicklaus Signature Course that boasts sand from Ohio that’s said to cling to the surfaces better and stands the weather conditions of the low country.
  • Hunting and shooting are a southern tradition and Palmetto Bluff offers 13 sporting clay stations on a 40-acre landscape that welcome shooters of all ages.
  • And, don’t forget the lawn sports with bocce and tennis courts and beautifully manicured croquet lawns. For the riders, Longfield Stables is Palmetto Bluff’s 173-acre facility that includes main barn, oversized stalls, and covered arena.
  • If Palmetto Bluff seems like home, go to palmettobluff.com for a complete listing of home sites and amenities.

THE LANDINGS (Savannah, GA)

  • Considered one of Savannah’s premier communities, The Landings on Skidaway Island offers close proximity to the historic area while maintaining its own identity as a true island home.
  • The Landings sit alongside scenic waterways and marshes and provides breath-taking views of coastal wildlife. Homes are found beneath the shade of moss-draped oak trees and provide exclusive living with beautiful golf views, volume ceilings, pools, private docks and guest suites. 
  • The Landings is known worldwide as a premier golf community, with six private courses designed by Arnold Palmer and Tom Fazio.  All courses are located within the community and residents enjoy the convenience of cruising the courses in their own golf cart.
  • Golf is just one of the amenities residents enjoy.  Tennis players have access to the nation’s largest residential clay court facility with over 34 courts found throughout the community.
  • Two full-service marinas offer easy access to the Atlantic, the Intracoastal Waterway, creeks and rivers for a day of leisurely fishing and boating fun. The Landings also offers a year-round wellness center. The Oakridge Fitness center is a 48,000 square foot facility with 23 personal trainers, indoor pools and steam rooms. 
  • To cap off a day of activity, residents dine in one of four full-service clubhouses that offer the traditional fare to the freshest seafood from coastal waters.
