In a an area overlooking Hamlin Sound where Confederate soldiers assigned to Fort Palmetto once patrolled on the lookout for Union ships, Hamlin Plantation now offers some of Charleston real estate’s most majestic homes. And while Fort Palmetto was really just a 160-foot-long three-gun battery with two field howitzers firing 32-pound balls and a larger 9-inch bore cannon launching balls up to 75 pounds, it protected a strategic part of the coastline against Union troops looking to invade Charleston. The sound’s place in history was later honored with not one, but two U.S. Navy ships bearing the name of USS Hamlin in World War II.
Today it’s not Confederate sentries looking out on Hamlin Sound but single-family homes and luxury townhomes offering one of the best price spreads to be found in Charleston real estate. With homes priced from the mid-$100s to the mid-$800s, neighborhoods that make up the plantation include:
