Newpoint~ A Beaufort Original and One of The Most Desired Communities
Newpoint is a true original, and one of the most influential communities in South Carolina. Developed in the early 1990s, Newpoint helped usher in the “neo-traditional” neighborhood craze that has swept the state in recent decades. Back during the early days of Newpoint, the only other place to find this type of community was in Beaufort’s Historic District, which the developers of Newpoint used for inspiration.
Newpoint is a true Beaufort original, from its “neo-traditional” architecture, to its stately homes which overlook Factory Creek and downtown Beaufort, which can be seen in the distance. At the front of the neighbhorhood are offices and shops, the first neighborhood in Beaufort which incorporated the “mixed-use” concept so popular in today’s residential construction.
The developers of Newpoint cleverly derived the community name from Beaufort’s “Old Point” community, in the heart of the Historic District. From the Newpoint community dock, residents can look across the Intracoastal Waterway
Newpoint is designed to foster a sense of community, where neighbors can easily meet, whether it be on front porches, the common-area mail pickup, or the community dock.
“Neo-traditional” neighborhoods, also known as “neo-classical” or “Traditional Neighborhood Design” developments, attempt to capture the feel of the architecture and town planning that was prevalent in early 20th century coastal towns.
From Newpoint, residents have easy access to area schools, amenities, shopping and dining. Historic Downtown Beaufort is just minutes away.
