We're now offering homesites with breathtaking views across the marsh or adjacent to our pristine nature preserve. Come explore with us.

Moreland Village


Living in harmony with the land

Moreland Village is located in an incredible natural setting, so we designed the community to blend into the landscape. Architecture is designed to create seamless transitions between the indoors and the outdoors. Trails connect the community and lead to convenient amenities as well as gathering spaces in the woods and along the water. A perfect way to be a part of the Lowcountry.




Moreland Point

Moreland Point is the last remaining marsh front property in Moreland Village. This special collection of just 39 lots look out across the river from within a spectacular Maritime Forest. Maritime Forest is the most beautiful of all the habitat types found at Palmetto Bluff. Majestic Live Oaks provide the tree canopy along with 100-year-old loblolly pine, black gum, and scattered pockets of southern magnolia.

Moreland Point has always boasted amazing biodiversity among both flora and fauna. White-tailed deer, eastern wild turkeys, and neo-tropical migrating songbirds like the Painted bunting and summer tanagers have made Moreland Point home. Our commitment to being good stewards of this land will lead to Moreland Point being the hub for not only human inhabitants but also our animal friends.

View Site Plan


Dove Field

Overlooking the Crossroads, the village green of Moreland, are 10 home sites with views saltwater marshes and creeks beyond. Amazing creek and marsh views, a coveted eastern exposure to capture the breezes, and a true downtown location make Dove Field the perfect place to experience the magic of the Lowcountry. The neighborhood name of Dove Field is an ode to the dove field that sits adjacent to these home sites. Palmetto Bluff Conservancy Director Jay Walea tells us that this was once the best dove spot in the country.


Maritime Row

Maritime Row in the village of Moreland will be such an anchor with five select properties located at the gateway to the village, greeting guests with true Southern hospitality. Each property will be carefully sited on a spacious home site with front porch views of Lake Bales, a preserved wetland, and the core of downtown Moreland Village. Maritime Row pays homage to the pristine waterfront views, creating a connection to the water and rowing activities that may take place in the Lake across the street.


Lake Bales

Home sites on Lake Bales in Moreland Village will offer expansive views of the water and the adjoining town, with each future home promising large rear porches oriented toward the stunning natural vistas. Lake Bales is named for former Palmetto Bluff Forestry and Wildlife Manager Charlie Bales. Charlie spent his entire career taking care of this land, first for Union Camp and then for Crescent Communities when it purchased the property in 2001, and retired in 2014.


The Preserve

In The Preserve, owners have the ability to find the unique combination of an in-town address and views of a permanently preserved open space called the River Road Preserve. Within steps of Moreland Village amenities and the Preserve’s 120 acres of sprawling maritime forest, each home in the preserve will have the ultimate combination of town and country living. The Preserve is named for the River Road Preserve that is adjacent to the home sites, which is a 120-acre conservation easement that will be shielded in perpetuity from development and held by the non-profit North American Land Trust.



This vast stretch of maritime forest sits within close proximity of the village core, while offering its future residents opportunities for idyllic views of the surrounding marshes, creeks and woodlands. These home sites are situated in the heart of Moreland Village and within walking distance of large swaths of wildlife preserve, nature trails, future Moreland Village amenities, and one of the finest redfish flats in the region.



A storied past

The history of Moreland Village.

Moreland was part of a 12,000-acre barony purchased in 1730 by Robert Wright, Chief Justice of South Carolina, and George Lord Anson, a British naval admiral. The barony was divided and sold in tracts that would eventually become the plantations of Palmetto Bluff. In 1774 Richard Proctor purchased 1,184 acres that would become known as Moreland Plantation. The main house at Moreland was located where the Moreland Landing pavilion is today. Over the years, the land had several owners. Then in 1915, Moreland was purchased by R. T. Wilson, a wealthy banker from New York. Wilson named his property, which would eventually total 20,000 acres, Palmetto Bluff.


Lowcountry architecture

A thoughtfully planned community.

The community has a true village aesthetic, thanks to picturesque architecture and thoughtful street planning. Homes incorporate porches oriented toward the street, encouraging conversation between neighbors. A variety of lot types and sizes help reflect the small-town informality associated with coastal living. And the entire community is centered on an expansive amenity complex overlooking both the marsh and Lake Bales. It is here that Moreland Village comes alive with social activities and planned events throughout the year.

Architecture that captures the spirit of the Lowcountry

Lowcountry vernacular architecture creates an informal atmosphere. It blurs the lines between indoors and outdoors through the generous use of windows and by incorporating porches into building design. This allows homes to take advantage of sun orientation, vistas and the adjoining streetscape.
