The permanent development of Bluffton, South Carolina began after the Revolutionary War had brought almost complete destruction. Homes were constructed during the early 1800s by area plantation owners seeking the high ground and cool river breezes as an escape from the discomfort on Lowcountry rice and cotton plantations in the sweltering summer heat. The Civil War brought more destruction to the town when the Union army took over, as it was the best lookout for war activity with its elevated views over the land and sea. Union soldiers destroyed 80 percent of the existing buildings.
Currently for sale is a 20,000-square-foot southern European-style mansion built in 2004 in the elite Colleton River community.
