Today we have 22 homes to see, starting in the South Beach area.
We have 20 Audubon Pond Road. 5 bedroom, 4 bathroom, $1,275,000. Has a spectacular marsh view, decking, but it is old school. Step down into the living room. Formal dining room. The kitchen is updated, it’s got the granite, beautiful granite, nice little family area. Master is upstairs. And it’s a little chopped up, but very cozy. Nice colorings, and small kitchen, but it’s not the open concept plan. Smaller kitchen, it’s elevated 14 feet, does have a 2 car garage, however it’s disconnected to the house. So I always think of downpours and taking your groceries when everything is wet. It’s a nice homey-home.
Next we went to 84 South Sea Pines Drive. 3 bedroom, 3 ½ bath, $875,000. And has a two car carport. It’s a dated house in okay condition. No finishes, but you have to come up some steps and zigzag your way to the kitchen. It’s got an enclosed pool. You can tell it’s on the rental market. Darker kitchen. It’s great as a rental. And at least you have an entry right to the carport when it’s raining. Large laundry room, master on the main floor. I was excited when I saw the price, but there’s a lot next door that was actually burned down and you have to cross the street to get to the walkway, you’re kind of close, but someone is going to build a big house over there and then this one is really going to lose, so $874,000, you’re buying a lot but I would say it will probably go for $828,000 maybe, but old school, but great location if you like to be on the main street.
Next we’re at the penthouse of 1934 South Beach Club Villa. Four bedroom, 4 ½ bath, $1,950,000. So I’ve been in the penthouses on the other side, this one overlooks the beach and the Sound. It’s in the building that’s closest to the water, so the view is superior. So if somebody wants easy living, or just wants a place at the beach, it is a spectacular view. It’s dated but nice and bright, I like it! 1934 South Beach Club Villa might make the short list! Next was 19 Beachside Villa. 4 bedroom, 4 bath, $949,000. Those are the ones that are across from the tennis, they don’t have a view but they are close to everything. South Beach Club Villas are a little more private and off the beaten path. If you want to be in the thick of things, this one is cute and redone. Its actually right next to and overlooks some of the tennis courts on the side. When you come in the front door, you actually see the pool and the South Beach Village. It’s got a nice circular driveway, always very convenient, and this one has been very tastefully updated. They painted everything kind of white. They did put some boards going up to make it a little more trendy. So it’s a beautiful, beautiful upgrade. With the floors etc. Nice and bright. Got a nice little porch, and again, you do look to the tennis courts. This one is ready to go for someone that wants to be in the South Beach area, you have your master downstairs, and another small bathroom all tastefully done. So, it’s just enough to have 4 bedrooms but not a lot to clean and do. Just the casual island living. 7 Painted Bunting. 4 bedroom, 4 ½ bath at $2,200,000, would be on the tour today, it was a new listing yesterday but I think they are pushing it and didn’t want to have it on the tour. So look for 7 Painted Bunting in 3 weeks! 7 Green Wing Teal Road, 4 bedroom 4 ½ bath at $1,850,000 (eighteen fifty) was really beat up, and too expensive. Next came 20 Black Skimmer Road, 4 bedroom 4 ½ bath, it’s been on the market before. They’ve lowered the price under $3 million, it’s $2,999,999. It’s a newer build, 2 car garage, second row. You walk in to an open floor plan, where the kitchen, living and eating area are all interconnected right when you come in and then you have the porch and sort of a mudroom. And then you have the steps going up to the second floor.
Sea Pines Villas
The first one is centrally located, 554 Ocean Course Villa, 2 bedroom, 2 bath, $649,000. Then we have 436 Plantation Club Villa, that’s a 2 bedroom, 2 bath for $375,000. 436 Plantation Club Villas, I remember it, it’s on the 4thfloor, the building closest to the beach. And right now the view, because of the palm trees, when you sit out on the little, it’s a little, little terrace, you really look into the palm tree, but in a couple of years, it will grow higher and then you will have spectacular views. Again, I think if you can get this one, it could be interesting. So, 436 Plantation Club Villas.
Central Sea Pines
The first central house is 10 West Beach Lagoon Road. 6 bedroom, 5 ½ bath, $3,300,000. Beautiful rounded garage doors in the Gold Coast Beach Lagoon area. Great curb appeal. Master on the first floor, European style kitchen, open floor plan, coffered ceilings, gorgeous golf view, Fairview.
Next I came to the Lawton Woods Neighborhood. It’s a great starter home area for Sea Pines Plantation, it’s right next to Hilton Head Preparatory School. You have the nature preserve and you can walk to the beach. 2 Rice Lane is the first one in Lawton Woods. It’s a 4 bedroom, 3 bath, $635,900. It’s got a pool, it’s got 2 car garage, it gets all the checks but it’s a corner lot but I’ve never cared for this house. Someone in our Sea Pines Real Estate had this listing before, it’s now with another broker. And it’s a rental. Too big for the lot.
Next we have 3 Pender Lane, 2 bedroom, 2 bath, $529,000, nicely appointed, very updated, it’s got new sliders, it’s got the high ceilings with the wood. Master suite is off the kitchen. You step down into the living room and you have a little pool. The second bedroom they put as sort of a workout facility, so for a couple it’s absolutely adorable. It’s perfect for a couple that just wants simple living, it’s turnkey. It’s a little country architecture, but you are close to a lagoon, you are close the beach, all new windows, the curb appeal is a little to be desired, but too cute inside.
Last one in Lawton Woods is 47 Lawton Road, 3 bedroom, 2 ½ bath, $699,000. This one you have some steps coming up, and a two car garage. Totally redone inside for 3 bedroom, 2 ½ bath, cute. Looks like it’s a flip, new appliances even, it’s got a breakfast nook, a dining room area. And has, you look at 2 other houses, but again but for Sea Pines its ready to go. Deck is a bit older. They worked a lot on the inside. A backyard, nice little deck. Smooth ceilings, they’ve done the whole inside part.
Club Course Area
To stay in the theme of starter homes, I decided might as well got to the Club Course area before I do Central. So I am starting at 24 Water Oak Drive, 3 bedroom, 2 bath, $469,900, absolutely cute. Got a great view of the lagoon and the golf. No garage, but nice wooden floors, engineered floors. Nice little inside curb appeal when you come in the house. Redone kitchen, little outside shower. Very, very cute.
Next I came to 83 Governors Road. That is listed at $499,000, and it is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath $499,000. It’s a larger lot so you have a little more upkeep, but nice wooden floors, a little more spacious. $30,000 more. I think the potential here is better. My hesitation is the bay windows, the design is a little lacking. But, very spacious and again, you are on a full sized lot, so you have a lot of potential to add on etc. So, this one will be a best buy for me.
So 3rdin the Club Course area is 28 Governors Lane. 4 bedroom, 4 ½ bath at $659,900. That compares to 20 Wood Duck Court which is a newer house, 4 bedroom 4 ½ bath at $650,000. This is a full sized lot, so I think the curb appeal is better and I think you have more room to do things with the house. I know these people, it’s a meticulous maintained house, it’s a 2 car garage and everything you need. The interior of 28 Governors Lane is pretty basic, but it’s got a good flow. After 28 Governors Lane, I went to 20 Wood Duck Court. Similar property, 4 bedroom, 4 ½ bath. It $650,000, $9000 less. It’s a newer house but it’s on a patio lot and it’s kind of tight. So it is newer than 28 Governors Lane, but I did not care—it’s nice. It’s nice. And newer. I prefer more land and so therefore of those two, 28 Governors Lane is my preference, however, newer is better than 20 Wood Duck Court is the best one.
After that I went deep into Club Course. Started at 20 Newhall Road. 4 bedroom, 4 bath, $875,000. Excellent curb appeal, beautifully landscaped, nice appointments inside, finished beautifully. Looks like it was added on a 2 garage car and their little sitting area and bedroom and has like a little study and butler’s pantry. Nice flow, beautiful backyard. Overlooking the golf course, very serene, richly updated.
And lastly, we have 42 Sand Fiddler Road, 4 bedroom, 4 bath, $675,000. It’s a family home. 2 story. Lots of steps going up, about 18. It’s been on the market before, I do believe they reduced the price. It’s got a killer marsh view. Basic house, but again you are in a great neighborhood and you have a nice huge backyard with a marsh view. Needs a lot of updating though.
Central Sea Pines
We’re starting at 14 Harleston Green, 4 bedroom 3 ½ bath, $1,175,000. It’s on the fifth fairway of Harbor Town, hence the price. I can’t wait to go in it, reminds me of traditional Sea Pines. Custom made home. It is on the Harbor Town Course, it’s got a spectacular view, however everything needs to be updated. It’s an original kitchen, an original house. Nothing’s been done to it. So, to me, it seems a little overpriced. If it’s a double lot, then possibly I see the value.
Next we have 33 Red Oak Road, 4 bedroom, 4 bath, $849,000. Very curious about this one. Price seems right. So it’s an elegant house. Has nice trim work. Basic doors, don’t like the handles. Open kitchen to the family area, 2 car garage, elevated, crown molding. Nice finishes. The biggest drawback to this house is being able to, all the windows stare at a house right across the street in the back. So you don’t really have privacy, but, if you put up some bamboo, again be careful with bamboo. The potential is pretty good in this house. This also makes the top 3.
32 Forest Drive. 3 bedroom, 2 ½ bath. They started over $600,000, they are now listing it at $585,000. The house has very little charm and empty. They should stage it. You can tell it’s a flip.
1 Wildwood Court. 3 bedroom, 2 bath, $525,000. Okay, I’m in the house. It’s a basic house. They’ve put new countertops on, it’s a beautiful granite, the ones they are using now that look like waves. Drawers are basic. Windows are still basic. It has a smell in here. I don’t know if it’s mold or moisture. But it’s got sort of an open floor plan. It backs up to the cul de sac of another street here in Greenwood Forest. It is on a corner lot. Wooded view. The deck looked like it could be really fun. But it’s your basic original house and they kind of redid the kitchen. It needs more updating though.
32 Stoney Creek. 3 bedroom, 3 ½ bath, $799,000. It’s on a patio lot. Cute, cute house. Nice curb appeal, 1 car garage, you are close to Harbor Town. Pretty trees.
The last house in Sea Pines is 5 Calibogue Cay Road. 2 story house, brick entryway, 2 car garage. It’s a huge lot. ThesePlantation drive lots are what they used to call an estate lot. You overlook a lagoon, have a pool, extremely private. I know the people that live on the one side, and on the other side, you ‘ve got the back of Briarwood Villas. And then on the one side you have other estate lot sizes. So, priced okay. It’s got a really long driveway and it’s asphalt. That in itself is part of the maintenance and so it’s like a road but when you get to it, the house, it also has the asphalt.
1 Curlew Road. 4 bedroom, 4 ½ bath, $1,450,000. It’s a rental. Very Old school but cool. 3 Dogwood Lane, 4 bedroom, 3 bath, $929,000. That’s across the street from where I went to school. Old school house, cute inside. I like it better than Curlew Road.
Now for favorites. That’s a tough one. Move in condition we have 3 Pender Lane, 2 bedroom. 32 Stoney Creek road, 3 bedroom. 10 Newhall, 3 bedroom, and then 10 West Beach Lagoon, 6 bedroom. And they range from $529,000, to $3,300,000, so call your realtor today! Talk to you soon. Hope to see you on the island.
