Pride of ownership is evident from the moment you approach Harbour Watch. This established neighborhood was not clear cut to develop.  Instead, landmark trees were left.  When you enter, there are barrier curbs and no driveways on this stretch of street. A gentle curve bounded by shades of green spaces leads you to a magnificent fountain centerpiece. You immediately know you have arrived at someplace special. Life at Harbour Watch on Lake Murray provides endless possibilities for homeowners. It is a restricted community which features gated entrance with security cameras, elegant clubhouse with caterer’s kitchen, fitness center, tennis courts, lakeside swimming pool, chipping and putting green, community marina with boat ramp and dock, community fishing pier, playground, public water and sewer, underground utilities, full-time grounds keepers, parks and nature trails. 

It’s a place where you can commune with nature where it is not uncommon to see great blue herons, osprey, eagles, deer and raccoons. It’s a place to spend lazy days just lying in a hammock and watching the sun creep down the lake's horizon, or to dangle your feet from the dock and to do nothing at all. This is a place of quiet solitude that abounds in Southern hospitality.  It is a place where neighbors, friends, and family feel welcome and are encouraged to participate in community activities including bunco, canasta, gardening, stitching and book clubs, pot luck dinners, parades, aerobics, pilates, a monthly community night out, gentlemen’s breakfast and more.
