General Information

In 1986 Bayview Farms Associates was formed to plan and develop Bayview Farms. The first phases of the land plan was designed by Wilber and Smith Associates of Columbia. Later phase land planning was designed and engineered by Seamon Whitesides and Associates of Mt. Pleasant.

Bayview Farms is a planned Unit Development (PUD) and is governed by a Declaration of Covenants, Conditions and Restrictions. These Restrictions are recorded in the RMC Office for Charleston County in Book 172 on page 85.

The first homes were built in 1987. The original plan included 187 Lots which included Portabella Lane, Wide Water Court, Salt Marsh Cove, Wayfarer Lane, Spanish Moss Court , Tidal View Lane and Tidal Basin Court. In 1998 the Association annexed the parcel of Clark Sound Circle, Henley Lane and Alric Court. This brings the total homes and voting members in the Association to 265.

Even though the Association was not legally turned over to the Homeowners until September 1996, with the encouragement of the Developer, a Resident Board of Directors was formed in 1991. Since that time, the Resident Board has determined the direction of Bayview Farms.

As the Association has grown in membership, the Directors have worked toward the goal of having a strong and active Association. The Directors have divided the Association into nine (9) geographic Districts from which the Directors are elected. Their goal is to have balanced neighborhood representation throughout Bayview Farms.
