Windmill Harbour exhibits a true Southern style. With many residences reminiscent of historical Charleston, the designs include light, colorful stucco exteriors, brick accents, black wrought iron trim, porches, shutters and grand staircases.

This relatively small seaside community makes great use of space by featuring homes built up two, three and sometimes four stories, all connected by sidewalks with lampposts and a sense of neighborhood charm. Sizes and prices of homes vary in Windmill Harbour from elaborate and ornate to Lowcountry cottage style. Each home design must adhere to relatively stringent community architectural guidelines.

The Property Owners Association levies annual owner fees. Certain areas within the community have additional separate fees. Membership in the prestigious South Carolina Yacht Club is optional.
