Russ Shows Private Islands On Buying The Beach

Russ Fielden Private Islands Buy The BeachI always figured that filming a TV show would be a fair amount of work, but not until I actually helped film a show did I realize just how much work. Even though 21 minutes of television took three long days of traveling and filming, it was worth it.

We traveled by boat to three different private islands over a period of three days. Two of the islands are off of Charleston SC.

Dewees Island, located just North of The Isle Of Palms was the location for the most refined property I was showing my clients Amy & John. Dewees has a wonderful beach, it is very low key and the island residents keep the island well protected from environmental damage. The home that we viewed is on the market at a price of $900K. If you would like more information on this property for sale on Dewees island just give me a call.

The other private island located off of Charleston SC is located near Folly Beach, has a private dock and also a neat rustic tree house style cottage built on it as a weekend getaway.

This island off of Folly Beach is interesting to me for three main reasons. It is a very short boat ride from a marina, the location is just around the corner from an inlet leading out to the Atlantic Ocean, and the island has about 1800 feet of frontage along the river. This island is for sale at a price of $1.2M which I think is a fair price. To be this close to amenities, have a boat dock in place and to be located just off the coast of Charleston is a very rare find. This island could easily be developed into a wonderful retreat for family and friends to enjoy. I can help provide more details and photos of this island if you have in interest. Please give me a call or send an email.

The third Island we filmed is off of Hilton Head Island and is also close to Beaufort SC. This island is actually privately owned and not for sale. It is my family's private fish camp and is a great example of what island living and having a coastal retreat can be like.

There are several private islands for sale off the coast of both Beaufort SC and Hilton Head. Some are undeveloped islands which may be improved with a dock for access and some that have homes and docks already in place.

if you are interested in finding out more about private islands off the coast of South Carolina just give me a call. I know of several islands for sale along the coast of Hilton Head, Beaufort, Edisto Island and Charleston.

So three days of filming the television show Buying The Beach on The Discovery Network segment of Destination America was a lot of fun. I think the show turned out well and my friends Amy and John looked like seasoned actors on the show.  I would not be surprised if Amy gets a call from Hollywood. Here enthusiasm and acting ability were perfect for the show.

The only surprise I had when we first arrived to meet the film crew was we needed to wear the same clothes for three days in a row. Showing all three islands was to look like we did it all in one day once it was edited. Oh well, I guess those other two new shirts I bought to wear on the show are a good addition to my wardrobe.

Our show is called "Appalachian Islands" because Amy and John are from the mountains of NC and were looking to find a private island that reminded them of the simple life they had before.
