COOSAW POINT AMENITIES
Residents of Coosaw Point foster a feeling of informality and safety, a sense of neighborliness, pride and satisfaction of being a part of the Coosaw community.
The Coosaw Point River Club is a Lowcountry architectural tour de force. Almost 8,000 square feet of interior space, surrounded by wide covered verandahs, look out over the Marshes of the Coosaw. The River Club features a large recreation room on the pool level, perfect for informal private or community events such as Superbowl Saturday, a friendly game of cards or other private gatherings. Also on the first floor is a fitness room, rest rooms, reception foyer, and elevator service to the second floor of the clubhouse.
The second floor is designed for more formal activities such as -bridge, property owners’ parties, catered events – (there is a professional caterer’s kitchen) or just relax with friends. The grand salon soars upward for over 30 feet to huge trusses at the peak of the roof, and a lovely balcony looks down over the salon from above – a great place for Christmas carolers when a fire is lit in the big, wood-burning fireplace.The Coosaw Point sales and management office occupies a small part of this floor, making it convenient for property owners.
The junior Olympic pool with its shady pergolas, an elaborate child’s pool and a pool house are adjacent to the clubhouse and have easy access to the first floor. From the riverfront verandah, if you get up early enough (and you won’t want to miss any part of the day at Coosaw Point!), you can watch the sun rise over St Helena Sound and the Atlantic Ocean. In the evening you can sit in a big rocking chair, enjoy a sundowner, and revel in the spectacular sunset over the upper waters of St. Helena and the Coosaw River.
Whether you are a tennis player or enjoy a game of Pickle Ball, the Coosaw Point Tennis Courts are centrally located just across the main interior park on Coosaw Point Boulevard. Beginner, novice and advanced players are all welcome and lessons can be arranged. Our spectator section, designated parking and court lights mean you can enjoy tennis day or night!
CP's Crab Shack
The old crab shack is a reminder of bygone days when there was a small, commercial crab packing operation at Coosaw Point. The system of holding ponds is mostly gone, but the quaint old sorting shed remains. We have preserved it as a place for community or family crab roasts, peel-and-eat shrimp nights and more!
A large floating day dock provides 200 lineal feet for tie-ups and easy access to your craft. A concrete launching ramp is adjacent to the floating dock, it has a tender dock beside it to make the task of launching and hauling your boat much easier. The boat basin has been excavated from high ground so that it does not impact the adjacent marsh. There is limited deep water access at low tide. The basin is connected to the Coosaw River by a 1,000 foot canal that was dredged out many years ago.
There is also a state maintained launch ramp within a mile of Coosaw Point. These choices give Coosaw property owners easy access out St. Helena Sound to the Atlantic, as well as to the Intracoastal Waterway that runs right in front of Coosaw Point. Hilton Head, Charleston and the whole Eastern Seaboard is at your command!
Nature prevails! Almost 130 acres of Coosaw Point remain as open space. There are wonderful old man-made duck ponds dating from the time when the property was the private hunting preserve of its wealthy owner.
Other portions are upland, freshwater wetlands, bordered by ancient live oaks, and set aside in our master plan to be preserved in perpetuity. One such wetland is reserved as a bird sanctuary and rookery; there Coosaw Point residents can see the many different kinds of colonial wading birds such as egrets and blue herons.
In other areas, large parks have been set aside as open grassy fields, bordered by shade trees, perfect for walking your dog or chipping a golf ball. Neighborhood children get together and use the fields of open space to play fun games like soccer, frisbee and tag.
Property owners at Coosaw Point walk away their cares on the relaxing paths that extend from the clubhouse and waterfront into the residential neighborhoods and community parks.
An hour’s stroll – or run – will take you from river and marsh, through maritime forests, beside freshwater wetlands and into grassy parklands… a journey guaranteed to do wonders for mind, body and spirit.
