About 601 Bay Street

Located in The Point of Beaufort's historic district, this beautiful ''wedding cake'' mansion offers stunning views of the Beaufort River and Elliott Park. This historic mansion at 601 Bay Street was featured in the 1991 movie ''Prince of Tides'' based on the novel by Beaufort author Pat Conroy. The style of architecture is that of the Greek Revival period, iconic when the house was built in 1852. It is an enduring example of The Beaufort Style of Architecture, a refinement of Greek Revival. The south facing fluted columns of the double tiered piazzas are Ionic over Doric and like most of the materials of the home, were harvested from Dataw island by the original builder,Lewis Reeve Sams and brought to Beaufort by boat.
