Private residential community which is a six miles before the bridge to Hilton Head Island. Comprised of 1,700 single-family homes divided into two distinct areas, the equestrian estate side, and the country club side. A 3,000 acre plantation that has become widely known not only for its stately homes, but for the annual polo matches that are open to the public. A favorite pastime for visitors and residents alike is a tailgate picnic while attending one of the tournaments that are played each year.
Another unique facet of Rose Hill is that it is divided by Highway 278 with either side offering a different personality and lifestyle, the Rose Hill Estates and Rose Hill Country Club.
Bordering on the pristine Colleton River, Rose Hill Estates is the community’s original development and caters to the equestrian crowd. Large stately homes and large lots are the norm. For the equestrian, Rose Hill is a dream. There are 10 miles of riding trails on the estate side as well as an Equestrian Center. In total, 70 acres have been dedicated to this purpose. It is also home of the Rose Hill Plantation House, one of the few surviving antebellum homes outside Savannah and Beaufort. Boating and fishing are available on the Colleton River as is a community dock and swimming pool. There are 2 sets of tennis courts within the entire plantation with hard-surfaces on this side.
On the Rose Hill Country Club side, golf is available. It is a semi-private facility and is graced with a rolling terrain set among elegant magnolia, pine and live oak trees. A charming Clubhouse and restaurant complement this side of the Plantation.
