Welcome to The Haven at New Riverside, a Del Webb over-55 active adult community. The Haven offers an idyllic setting conveniently located in the coastal Lowcountry of South Carolina. Sitting between the sparkling beaches of Hilton Head Island and downtown Savannah, Georgia, it is a community of 500 homes that has a friendly, intimate feel, but is large enough to offer a rich assortment of amenities and leisure time activities. Residents can enjoy gardening, swimming, tennis, pickle ball, bocce ball or many of the clubs in the community. Residents can also simply appreciate the tranquility, mild climate, beauty, and wildlife not found in many places.
Located in Bluffton, South Carolina near the May River, The Haven is close to Palmetto Bluff and Old Town Bluffton. A vibrant arts community and a lively restaurant scene make Old Town Bluffton a great place to go. The area was originally settled by Native Americans who thrived on the plentiful shrimp, oysters, fish, and wildlife. In the early and mid-19th century, Bluffton became a favorite site for summer homes of wealthy plantation owners who were lured by the breezes on the scenic bluffs overlooking the May River. Several antebellum homes and churches still stand today, reminders of Bluffton's past.
