The Beaufort County community of Seabrook — not to be confused with the Charleston County resort community of the same name — is a small, unincorporated area situated off Highway 17 past Edisto Island and near Interstate 95. The area is home to a large public high school and middle school, a small residential community and a U.S. post office. It is close to Beaufort’s Marine Corps Air Station. Real estate includes large lots for custom building and well-equipped waterfront homes. The area remains somewhat rural and more modest single-family structures and modular homes are common. The area is about an hour and a half to two hours from the historic downtown Charleston peninsula.
