And we are part of the best small town in the USA!

Enjoy a retirement lifestyle of your choosing on your terms.

Retiring to a life in the Celadon community can be as active or as quiet as you want it to be. Neighbors are close by, festivals and events are planned and always available, but opportunities for solitude and quiet contemplation are yours too. Read a book on your wide shady porch, walk your dog, tote your easel and paints to the water’s edge to capture the sunrise, or take a kayak out on one of Beaufort’s many waterways and watch the birds.

Celadon homes are filled with light and space.

Designed for comfort, beauty and ease of use, our elegant Celadon homes are inspired by the gracious Lowcountry architecture.

Prospective residents can choose from one of Celadon’s available homes or plans, or submit a plan of their choosing.
