Two quaint communities near the eastern edge of Lake Moultrie, St. Stephen (sometimes called St. Stephens) and Bonneau deliver on the promise of a carefree life amid nature's splendor. The verdant landscape stretches out in all directions, with neighborhoods sequestered in wooded lots on quiet streets. Real estate in St. Stephen and Bonneau is peppered throughout each respective town. In Bonneau, the most sought-after options are near the lake, while in St. Stephen, they're near the center of town, which isn't much more than a collection of schools and churches and a handful of retail stores.
Both towns are located adjacent to the serene Francis Marion National Forest, with its popular Palmetto Trail and endless recreation opportunities. Though tranquility and privacy prevail in these parts, the hustle and bustle of Charleston can be reached in about an hour.
Finding the perfect home for sale in St. Stephens and Bonneau means choosing between attractive farmhouses, quaint ranch-style properties, and opulent lakefront gems.
