Windmill Harbour


Windmill Harbour began in 1981 as a joint effort between Sea Pines founder Charles Fraser, Andres Deutsch, and J.R. Richardson, who jointly engaged the Sea Pines Company to serve as the development arm of their partnership. In the mid 1980's, Mr. Fraser chose to sell the Sea Pines Company, and as Windmill Harbour was not part of that sale, Deutsch and Richardson assumed responsibility for the further development of the project. Coincident with the marina's development, the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) required massive amounts of fill to build the abutments for the new bridge being constructed adjacent to Windmill Harbour. In return for the dirt, SCDOT excavated the harbour to the necessary design specifications. The lock was constructed to create a protected harbour from the weather and the changing tides. It was only the second lock existing on the eastern seaboard at the time. The founders designed a mix of single-family homes, townhomes and condominiums in a traditional southern style, similar to residences found in Charleston. As Windmill Harbour began to take shape, more and more homes were built in that style. This led to the evolution of the Charleston Lowcountry look one sees in Windmill Harbour today.
