Litchfield by the Sea, lovingly developed by The Litchfield Company in the heart of Pawleys Island was introduced in 1978 with the goal of creating a unique, private beachside community that offered something for everyone.
Bordered and protected on the North by Huntington State Park and in the South by Hobcaw Barony, both home to large wildlife sanctuaries, our very special community offers homeowners, visitors and vacationers a life style built around beach activities, tennis, golf at one of three major golf courses, walking, biking and hiking paths which extend for miles through some of the loveliest southern marshlands. just three miles away is Brookgreen Gardens, the largest outdoor sculpture garden in the world, This is truly a unique community, with planned development and careful decisions on how to balance progress and a bountiful natural resource.
Sea Turtles nest in protected areas, where conscientious neighbors take quiet watch over their protection; the sun sets over the marsh and from the huge community deck seaside at LBTS, watching the moon rise is a popular evening sport by residents and guests. The beach stretches in either direction from Litchfield by the Sea three miles in one direction and five miles in the other direction making an unbroken paradise for walkers and runners.
Art Activities offered in the area are in addition to classes offered by Coastal Carolina University, wildlife tours at the wildlife preserve and the State Park making LBTS a photographer’s dream. Those wishing more of the urban development of Myrtle Beach need drive only 15 miles to reach some of the most unique shopping areas from tasteful shops dotting the landscape owned by private businessmen and women, to outlet shopping, to the famous Broadway at the Beach.
Award winning chefs present their fare at nearby restaurants in Pawleys Island. Fine dining and lowcountry delights can be found all over Pawleys Island, Murrells Inlet and beyond.
