My Weekly "Favorite" BLOG based on Realtor Tours, Central, North & South

Thank you for visiting my blog! This weekly blog is not intended to promote my listings or those of my Firm, Sea Pines Real Estate Beach Club. We market those very well. Instead, the purpose of this blog is to give you insight to my one pick of what I think is the “favorite” from the choice of homes on the weekly home tour. I will try and guide you through my process and thoughts to my pick.

The home tour is designed to introduce the real estate agents of the new homes on the market. The tours are broken down to North, Mid-Island and South Island. My “favorite" is not based on any particular criteria. It is simply and usually, my professional choice of the “favorite” in this week’s offerings. However, as I am human, sometimes emotions take over and I just like a house.  I take the community, location, price, size, view, condition and other variables into each evaluation. 

Feel free to contact me, Your Hilton Head Agent, or your own agent for information on any homes or villas on the weekly tour or on the island. I look forward to hearing from you!

See you at the beach, bike path, ocean or golf course! :)

Hilton Head Homes Tour Central - Nov. 14, 2018

Hi there! Today I’m taking you on the Central Tour of Hilton Head Island homes. We have 17 properties on tour. Six of them are homes and 11 are villas. Of the homes, they range in price from $439,000 to $2,497,000. The villas range from a one-bedroom listed for $275,000 all the way up to a three-bedroom listed at $995,000, but as you know, I don’t tour villas, although I sell them. 

Port Royal

I started at 21 Salt Spray. This house has been on the market before. It has five bedrooms and four and a half baths and is listed for $2,497,000. It is sound front and it’s right next door to the newly built Port Royal Beach Club. Now, some people say it’s sound and it is. Anything to the left of the beach club is technically sound. Then, to the right is beach and goes toward the Westin Hotel, but I would say this one is about as close to beach as you can get and at a great price. There is really nothing wrong with this house. I am shocked that it’s still on the market. It has gone down in price by another $98,000. I think it’s nicely appointed, move-in condition, and in a nice neighborhood. It has views of the water in front and back, and a newer grey kitchen. 

Palmetto Dunes/Leamington

5 South Shore Drive is a four-bedroom four and half bath house priced at $1,325,000. It’s nicely appointed and has a long lagoon view. There’s nothing negative to say about this house. It’s a great family home. It has a great feel in it. 

27 South Shore Drive is also a four-bedroom four and a half bath. The home is listed for $1,250,000. It also has a pool and a two-car garage. It has a prettier lagoon view - I believe - and it has been on the market before. It shows much better now because they had gaudy furniture back in the day. I think the kitchen is also small and kind of isolated. So, that’s probably one of the reasons it’s still on the market, but again, the previous home is more buyer friendly so to speak. 

Long Cove

4 Rosebank Lane is one of two homes in Long Cove. It has four bedrooms and four baths for $439,000. I’m in awe of the prices in Long Cove even though they have a high initiation fee and a high POA fee. If you keep it for ten years you still get a lot more house for your money, but you also don’t have as many of the amenities that you do in some of the others. However, if you’re a golfer, then you really need to Consider Long Cove. So, on to the details of the home: You can see the house across in the back. It looks like it’s set back far enough that you really don’t have room for a pool, but it’s set nicely on the corner. It does have a little bit of a smell, and it does have an older roof. It looks like the decking and entry stairs need a little TLC. All in all, it’s a decent price at $439,000, but you would have to put some money into it. 

The second home in Long Cove is 27 27 Long Brow Road, a five-bedroom four and a half bath house listed for $765,000. This home is a beautiful home. It looks like it’s been nicely painted, has smooth ceilings, and a newer roof. It has a very pretty fairway view. I think it’s the 17thor 18thfairway. It’s a lot of house at over 5,000 square feet. It does have saturnia floors in the foyer. The deck is wood and this would make a great family home. 

Wexford Plantation

43 Wexford Club Drive is a four-bedroom four bath home listed at $599,000. It’s a cookie cutter house that has old cabinets in the kitchen. The fourth bedroom is really an office because you come to it right when you walk in and it’s to the right. I would almost have it listed as a third bedroom with an office. If you want to be in Wexford it is entry-level at four bedrooms and four baths, but it does need some work.

Villas

We have 11 villas on the market. 

Shelter Cove / Palmetto Dunes 

Unit 7131 Harborside Villa is a two-bedroom two bath listed for $325,000. 

Unit 7151 Harborside Villa is a one bedroom one bath for $275,000.

517 Barrington Court villa has one bedroom and one bath for $405,000. It’s ocean front and in a nice, five-story building. 

2 Beach Villas is off Mooring Buoy Road right inside of one of the PD gates. It’s a three-bedroom two and a half bath listed at $995,000.

There are two Fazio villas. Both have three bedrooms and three baths. The first is #9 Fazio and is $434,900, and the second is #11 Fazio, listed at $539,000. 

InvernessVillage has two villas. The first one is Unit 910 which is a three-bedroom three bath villa listed for $425,000. The second Unit 938 is a two-bedroom two bath villa for $380,000.

The ever-popular entry-level Queens Grant Villas has Unit 570 available. It’s a two-bedroom one bath listed for $246,000. It is one of the smaller ones. 

Shipyard

The first villa in Shipyard is 279 Evian Villa, a three-bedroom three bath listed for $450,000. That may seem a little steep, however, please keep in mind that this Evian is a stand alone one and they are quite rarely on the market. Lastly, 5D Waterford Villa, a 2 bedroom 2 bath listed at $235,000. These folks either love for their quirkiness or hate them. 

Well that covers the Central Tour of Homes for Hilton Head Island today. Next week is Thanksgiving so we will not be having a TOUR. Be Thankful in ALL things and see you in a couple of weeks!

New Listing in Sea Pines Club Course

I am really excited to announce a new updated home for sale in Sea Pines! This home had ONE original owner. The retired executive and his wife built this home in 1981 for themselves, allowing two bedrooms downstairs with a Jack-and-Jill bathroom in case their two children (one son and one daughter), come to visit. The larger of the two bedrooms also served as an office as well as its own exit to a private little garden/sunning area. Pretty flowers adorn this space.

After the parents passed away, the two children lovingly updated this cozy home to include thousands of dollars in what I like to call the 'unsexy' items. People don't "see" these but they add up and justifies the price of the home. Between 2017 and this year, NEW roof NEW HVAC, NEW DUCT WORK, NEW water heater, NEW garage flooring, NEW glass in all back windows, NEW plumbing fixtures, NEW electrical fixtures, NEW kitchen cabinets, NEW undercounter lighting, NEW vanity tops. Yet, the architectural integrity of this Sea Pines masterpiece is intact. Do call your Realtor today and come see this amazing home: a great downsize, second home or primary home. Buy now and rent long term until you can make it down here full time - this home is a 10 in coziness and attention to maintenance detail. Peace of mind.

Hilton Head Homes Tour South- Nov. 7th, 2018

Today we have the Hilton Head Island Realtor Tour for the South End, which is one of my favorites. This time we had 32 houses total.  Sea Pines did have two villas and one piece of land. So, technically, there were only 15 homes in Sea Pines. We had two Off Plantation - I will mention those later – and one villa. In Forest Beach we only had one home and the other ten were villas. As you know, I don’t really go into the villas. Range of homes went from $348,900 to $3,900,000.

Sea Pines

Harbour Town Neighborhood

My first stop was 30 Harleston Green which is right on the Harbor Town Golf Course. It has five bedrooms and five and a half baths and is listed at $2,075,000. That home is a turnkey home. It’s elevated and very elegant. Thishome  is elevated and has a pool with a fountain spa. It has six gas burner stove and a nice appointed kitchen. More space with higher ceilings, but it’s also over $2,000,000 instead of the $1.5 to $1.6 million-dollar range that 12/14 Harleston Green are asking.

To stay in the Harbor Town area, I did go see one villa because I know the agent. 142 Harbourwood villa is a two-bedroom two bath home. Those are the ones that look like a little square with a cap on them. They are near the driving range on Plantation Drive. They are a little out from the Harbour Town area at $479,000. It does need updating. So, at this price, just be aware you’ll have to do some updating.

The only villa in Sea Pines that I did not go to was 241 Stoney Creek Villa. It’s a three-bedroom three bath home for $495,000. The price seems a little high, but Stoney Creek Villas you know about. I’ve mentioned them many times. The good about this model is that it does not have the sunken LR.

South Beach Neighborhood

10 Wren Drive with four bedrooms and three baths listed for $850,000. It is on the rental market. It is an elevated house, but when you come in it’s very dated as you are coming up the steps. You don’t have any privacy to the back. You can see the house that’s on that corner. It needs a little love, but again, it’s on the rental market. So, what do you expect, correct?

Next, we had 7 Gadwall Road. This home is an ocean front house with five bedrooms and four baths with two half baths listed at $3,900,000. I do want to point out that the lot to the left of that is also for sale. It’s listed at $3,750,000. In this house you have to go up the steps to get to the living room and then you come around to the kitchen that needs updating and then you have to go down some steps. So, it’s a little bit of a choppy house. It’s a little more than lot value right now. I think it would almost be a teardown. I guess you could salvage it, but the curb appeal is still very dated. It’s also far from the beach, and don’t forget, the Gadwall is already on the sound area. Some people say it’s technically not beach. So, even though it is ocean front, it may not be seen that way. 

Next, we went to 6 Painted Bunting Road, a four bedroom four and a half bath home for $1,400,000. It’s the same situation. It’s on the rental market. The curb appeal is dated. It’s priced okay, but if you think about what’s across the street – a newer house for a little more money – by the time you update it etc., why go through that headache? The floor plan is not ideal either. 

 

Central Neighborhood in Sea Pines

I then went and saw a gorgeous house which is at 80 North Sea Pines Drive. It’s a five-bedroom six bath home listed for $2,250,000. I think about 72 N. Sea Pines Drive that is just down 5 homes to also consider. The curb appeal/architecture towards the front of this house isn’t that cool. It’s very big and the picture doesn’t do it any justice, but just the feel of it is off. You are very close to the beach. It’s a sixth row. The landscaping is very nice. It’s your basic build from that era and a newer built home. You’ve got a killer view of the Atlantic Dunes Golf Course and Heron Point. The view is really nice especially if you are a golf fan. The pool is kind of dated with a little spa, but it’s a nice clean house. It’s higher end for that era as I mentioned before. What I loved about it is when you get to the garage it’s got a little golf cart doorway to the back end of the garage that really appeals to all your bikes and things you want to take to and from the beach. So, it’s priced a little on the high end, but again, it’s a nice house.

Next is 40 Plantation Drive. It’s a four-bedroom four and a half home right on Plantation Drive. It’s priced really well at $775,000. It has newer windows. It’s got a contemporary kitchen. It’s got unique architecture, but it really takes the best views of the golf course. It’s on, I believe, Herron Point. For $775,000 I don’t like the grey siding color. That needs to be painted beige to go with the windows, because with the newer windows it just kind of screams at you, but that one is staying on my short list.

Greenwood Forest had a house which is 2 Sweet Gum Lane. It’s a three-bedroom three bath home listed for $549,000. The roof is newer. It has a one-car garage. It’s on a corner lot. I really wanted to see it since that other one went that was under $499,000. This one was priced a little higher but did have a new roof. However, I could not get into the property because there wasn’t a lock box. So, I don’t know if it went under contract. If I hear anything I will let you know.

Lawton Woods 

7 Pender Lane is a two-bedroom two bath priced at $509,000. I think 3 Pender Lane that was more updated but with the same exact floorplan sold in the mid to high fives. For this home, the owner has redone all of the windows. It has a tiny pool. So, it’s priced well and is a little more private because it’s not on the corner as you drive into Pender Lane. So, it’s an interesting entry-level into Lawton Woods. 6 Rice Lane just closed also.

69 Lawton Road is a three-bedroom two and a half bath listed for $425,000. I was intrigued by that, but it’s got Mexican tile on the floor. It does face Greenwood Drive. It really needs a lot of work. I think the work will cost more than $75,000 and you also don’t have the little pool. So, I don’t see that one going anytime soon unless you are the builder type. The smell was a bit more than I like to smell...

Club Course Neighborhood

The first home in Club Course is 14 Club Course Drive. It’s a three-bedroom two bath home for $545,000. The garage is detached. It is elevated, but it’s all wood. It didn’t really give you a great feel. It does need to be updated inside. The kitchen is toward the front. It has a wooded view and nice decking, but it needs a lot of updating. However, it is priced well. Again, you get a two-car garage and you’re in the Club Course area. Mind you, 14 Club Course is before you get to Otter Road or Isle of Pines. So, you do get a lot of traffic driving by the home compared to my listing. 

11 Wood Duck Road is a three-bedroom two and a half bath listed at $685,000. It’s been completely redone. It only has a one-car garage and it does face Greenwood Drive on the other side of the golf course. As you look outside, you have a green area and then there is a little lagoon. So, you wouldn’t want little kids playing in there, but again, you’ve got golf views and lagoon area. Greenwood is beautiful updated and very contemporary. The kitchen has been updated. The bathroom has been updated. The third bedroom is sort of the same thing. It’s seen more as an office and it’s really turnkey and ready to go. I like that one and I think someone will too. 

Next is 12 Sand Fiddler Road, a four-bedroom three and a half bath home listed for $875,000. It’s a newer house. You can tell that it was built as a spec home, but it has a great view. It’s a tight lot, but a newer home and elevated with a two-car garage and high ceilings. There are nice colors in the kitchen. It’s just that builder spec home type. I don’t have anything to say that’s wrong with it. It’s not a bad house. 

182 Club Course Drive is a six-bedroom six and half bath house. This is the third go around on this house with a third broker. It’s priced at $1,179,000. It has a nice golf view. It’s deep into Club Course. The biggest challenge is that the surrounding houses are listed under a million dollars, and unless you have a huge family and you want to be in an area that isn’t really rentable, it’s a tough sell. But, if you want to be in Club Course this has got lots of bedrooms and bathrooms. It is a very traditional floorplan. The furniture is a little dark and I think that makes it hard to show, but the price is getting better.

71 Club Course Drive is my listing. It’s a three-bedroom two and a half bath priced at $679,000 with a pretty golf view. It’s one of the best views. You can walk to the Sea Pines Country Club. Everything is updated including the closets. It’s got a new wine cooler. The garage floor has been redone. The kitchen has all new cabinetry and granite countertops. There’s decking outside with a firepit. The master bedroom is upstairs. The loft area and closet could be turned into a fourth bedroom and fourth bath if needed. It’s a really cute house. Every little detail has been taken care of. So, it’s in turnkey condition. I love this house, personally, and not because it’s my listing. I just love the old country homes, but, you know, if it was a marsh view it would be my favorite by a long shot. 

The last one in Club Course is 112 Otter Road. It’s a three-bedroom two and a half bath home priced at $499,000. It’s priced really well. It has a two-car garage. What I like about this house is that it’s off the loop of Otter Road. So, it’s a little on the quieter side. It does have a smell which I don’t care for. It does need some updating, but it is more on the private side and it’s priced pretty well. It has a traditional floorplan. When you walk in you’ve got steps on the left to the bedrooms. It’s a great entry-level. Again, for Otter Road it is a little on the high side, but I think it will probably go for somewhere in the mid fours. There’s great potential for this one. 

Now the first house when leaving the gates of Sea Pines is 17 Myrtle Lane. It’s a four-bedroom four bath house listed for $749,000. It has a two-car garage. It has a mother-in-law suite. I don’t think it’s conforming to insurance purposes. So, you have to keep that in mind, but it’s a great rental opportunity and close to the beach. It’s not in a gated community. You are a little surrounded by rentals, but there are a lot of people that live in the area. I know a lot of people on Hickory Lane. Again, that could be a rental for someone who doesn’t want to pay a resort gated community price. 

Point Comfort

The first is 6 Sea Olive Road which has three bedrooms and two baths for $349,500. It looks like it’s been cleaned up. It’s surrounded by interesting homes. It’s a great neighborhood. A little further on Sea Olive you get - on the odd side - water views. So, again, it’s a very cute neighborhood. It’s kind of open. It’s slab on grade. The oyster shell driveway has been ripped up. It looks like that will need to be taken care of because there is a lot of root damage on it. 

55 Ashton Cove Drive is in a little gated community with an automatic gate. The home has three bedrooms and two and a half baths and is listed for $348,900. It’s a very good entry-level. These houses are elevated and trick-or-treaters, if you don’t like Halloween or Trick-or-Treat don’t buy in Ashton Cove. I think they had 340 trick-or-treaters over Halloween. We always laugh and say that’s probably part of the covenants that you need to buy $300 worth of candy. It’s a great neighborhood and an entry-level home. It needs some updating, but for a young family it’s a great neighborhood because underneath the elevated house you have lots of space. What I like about this house is it’s on a corner lot and it’s on the inside part of the loop. So, you have a big yard because it’s kind of pie shaped. So, that was kind of neat for entry level. 

That about wraps it up. 

I’d have to say that my two favorites include one of my listings which is 71 Club Course Drive. It’s a turnkey home with two bedrooms and two and a half baths listed for $679,000. I think if you want a home with huge potential to renovate with killer view, 40 Plantation Drive. I could also include 7 Pender Lane. That was a well-priced entry-level home for Lawton Woods. 

I think that about covers those homes, but I do want to mention the rest of the Villas. Off Plantation we had Palmetto Bay Villa #18 with two bedrooms and one bath listed for $159,000.

Then, we had a ton of Shorewood Villas. We had four Shorewood Villas. 

There is a three-bedroom three bath villa for $1,100,000, which was #507

Then, #433 is a two-bedroom two bath listed for $525,000. 

#336 is a two-bedroom two bath for $635,000. 

Then, #503 has two bedrooms and two baths for $875,000. 

Three of them are from the same broker. So, I don’t know if it’s an investor who is just moving on or if there is something going on regime-wise. 

Then, there is 3079 Seascape Villas. It’s a little one bedroom one bath for $159,900. 

412 Forest Beach Villa is a two-bedroom two bath for $405,000.

430 Forest Beach Villa is a two bedroom two and a half bath listed at $400,000.

These are solidly built. They used to be priced in the threes, and I think they have a big window and stucco assessment that is coming up. So, a lot of people are putting them on the market, meaning it might be a great time to get into those. I love Forest Beach Villas. I think that they are solid and well managed. 

525 Carolina Beach Club has two bedrooms and two baths and is priced at $359,000. Those aren’t built as well. They used to be the old Sea Pines Montessori grounds. 

103 Breaker’s Villas has one bedroom and one bath and is listed at $189,900. 

20 Beach Arbor Villa is a two bedroom two and a half bath for $229,000. Those rent pretty well. 

That covers our tour for today. Thank you so much for going on the tour with me. Please call me if you have any questions or if you’d like to see any of these condos or homes. If there’s anything else in particular that you are looking for; I would love to help you narrow it down. I wish you a great day and I look forward to seeing you again next week. Bye Bye!

Hilton Head Homes Tour North- Oct. 31, 2018

Windmill Harbour

tMy first stop was 82 Crosstree North Townhouse, a four bedroom three and a half bath listed for $595,000. It overlooks the marsh. You come in and it’s kind of a tight entryway. You have to walk through. You have an office on your right and you come through a narrow path into the living room. To the back is the kitchen with cabinets that have been distressed. It has a nice marsh view with a little sitting area outside with a tire swing. You hear a lot of road noise. You do not see the bridge and it was low tide. So, it’s a very pretty view. It’s very beat up on the outside. It needs exterior paint and some sprucing up. The back deck looks like it leans a little bit into the master bedroom. I’m a little concerned about that, but other than being beat up and having road noise (white noise), it’s a nice location.

19 Crosstree Drive has three bedrooms and two and a half baths for $534,500. It is an interior townhouse. It has a nice courtyard entrance. Two of the bedrooms are upstairs and one is downstairs. It has a nice little garden with a lake view. It’s a little choppy but has nice colors. The situation is that the owners bought it six months ago and life changed. So, they are selling it even though they just bought it. It has nice trim work and is in better condition than the previous house. Very turnkey to every detail.

Hilton Head Plantation

My first stop in Hilton Head Plantation was 10 Lenora Drive. It is a four-bedroom four bath home listed for $549,980. This house has been on the market before. It is really priced well. You do have popcorn ceilings to deal with in this home. There is bull nose rounded granite in the kitchen. There is a lot of different flooring going on, and the cabinets are painted nicely, but they are original cabinets. It has a beautiful backyard that is extremely private and looks out into the conservancy which is perfect if privacy is important to you. It needs a lot of work and it is kind of choppy, but again, it’s a cozy house on a nice lot in a great location. 

25 Lenora Drive is a three bedroom two and a half bath for $649,900. I was surprised when I first saw that price, especially after going into 10 Lenora which is a four-bedroom four bath at a different price, but when you drive in the landscaping is beautiful. It has a long driveway going in with a brick entryway. It does have a sunken living room, but they have redone all of those windows complete with a big slider looking out over the golf course. They did update some of the bathrooms. It has bright colors and is tastefully done. It certainly doesn’t need anything done to it. It has smooth ceilings. It’s in move in condition.

15 Sam’s Point Lane in the Elliott Point subdivision of Hilton Head Plantation, is a four bedroom three and a half bath listed for $1,150,000. It is an elevated house with stucco and new, high-end landscaping. The entryway has pavers and beautiful new doors. I love that when you look out into the paver driveway, which is gorgeous, you also see marsh to the front on the other side of the home. When you come into the entryway, your living space is all open and you’ve got a killer marsh view with water down on the other end. It’s really spectacular. It’s well planned out. The garage comes right into the kitchen. It has two different color cabinets in the kitchen, tongue and groove, high ceilings that are smooth and an open floor plan. The home has ceramic tile throughout the living and kitchen area. It has a beautiful hearth. Again, it’s a spectacular view. There is wooden decking that looks like teak, which is gorgeous, and there is seating in the back. It has two beautifully updated fireplaces. It’s a spectacular home. The laundry is near the master which is always a plus. I love it when things have been thought out. Beyond the laundry room there is an office that gives you a whole master suite area. I love this house.

7 Charlesfort Place has six bedrooms and six and a half baths listed for $3,595,000. Of course, this house is on Ribaut Island with a deep-water view. It does have a three-car garage. It has a much tighter curb appeal. The previous home had a much more open feel. I loved having marsh on one side. The front of this house has a wooded view on a lot that is buildable. The home has a beautiful dock where you can park your boat. It’s got my old patio furniture which is made of outdoor material that is indestructible. It has a pool and a grassy area with a hot tub. It has an infinity pool and a nice outdoor dining area. The windows are okay. It’s a stone and marble stucco house. Again, it’s quite the price tag, but it’s beautifully appointed in a grand location. As you come in the house you have a living space with a bar area, then a dining room and an open kitchen that opens to the master. The stove has six gas burners. The kitchen cabinets are more contemporary tongue and groove cabinets with soft close. The home is gorgeous and so is the price tag. Again, if you can afford it, the architectural style with the trace ceilings and the trim work, the lighting in the family room area and dining room with rounded ceilings, it really is a beautiful home. 

32 Fernwood Court is a two-bedroom two bath home listed for $310,000. The home has a white kitchen.  It has a cute little Carolina room. It’s small and cozy with smooth ceilings and trace ceilings in the family room. Tile floors with big square white tiles. The kitchen is white. The drawers are your basic drawers. They are not tongue and groove. 

Near Fernwood we have 2 White Tail Deer Lane with three bedrooms and two baths for $379,000. It does have a two-car garage, bay windows, and lots of pine trees all around. It looks old school. It has an asphalt driveway with some settling and root damage. When you walk in you have shag carpet. It’s a small area, but there is an entryway. The third bedroom is used as an office. It has a wooded view. It has laminate counter tops. It’s priced appropriately. It has popcorn ceilings, but they are cathedral ceilings. There seems to be some settling off the roof line. The kitchen is that white laminate peeled stuff. It has old school drawers. It’s in its original state, but it is cozy for one or two people and could be very interesting. There is a kitty cat here and it does have a cat smell. It’s priced appropriately from what I can tell, but it does need updating. It does have gutters and the roof looks newer.

38 Oyster Shell Lane has three bedrooms and three and a half baths and is listed for $699,000. It has nice architecture. As you walk up, you have a pool with pavers around it, a nice barbecue area, and a fire pit. The home has very nice curb appeal. Of course, you have the walkway that can get you to the sound. So, it’s in a great location and is surrounded by million-dollar properties. It does have kind of a mountainy feel, and it does have a sunken living room. The kitchen opens to a breakfast nook and the family area and partial dining room. So, you’re not completely isolated. It has very nice appointments, but it is sort of darker. You would need to paint to lighten it up, but it’s wonderfully built. Apparently, a builder owner it before he sold it to these folks. 

54 Hickory Forest Drive is a four-bedroom three bath home for $479,000. I love to drive into Hickory Forrest. You come through and see sort of a golf view on your left and then the deep water. So, it’s just a nice little neighborhood. I suspect that it needs updating. The roof looks a little granuled. So, at some point you need a new roof. The windows look pretty nice and it has Cypress siding. Inside the home there is new carpeting. The owners put new tile down in the kitchen. It has a nice open feel. There are some popcorn ceilings, but I think it has potential. It’s clean. It’s spacious. It has a private wooded view. So, we’re okay with this one. I don’t mind it.

43 Hickory Forrest Drive is a three bedroom two and a half bath listed for $446,000. The roof on this home is in total disrepair. It needs absolute replacement. There is pink carpeting inside that needs to be redone at some point. It’s a basic home. It was probably a spec home. I don’t think it is attracting as 54 Hickory Forrest if that is the neighborhood that you want to be in.

4 Myrtle Warbler Road has three bedrooms and two and a half baths and is listed for $379,000. This one has a one-car garage. You can tell it’s Halloween because across the street they have ghoulish decorations. It’s incredible. I should almost take a picture of it for you. When you come into the home you sort of have a wall in front of you. The bottom line is that it’s a patio lot but having the entryway at the backside of the laundry room that is in the middle of the space – it’s a very funky floorplan. It’s kind of tight. It’s priced well. So, it’s a great entry level into Hilton Head plantation, but it needs some love. It definitely needs some love. 

20 Rookery Way is a three bedroom two and a half bath home listed for $460,000. It is a large lot. The bathroom looks okay. It has a two-car garage. It’s okay. For that kind of price, it’s just okay. 

Next, we have 32 Cypress Marsh Drive with three bedrooms and two baths for $369,000. Of all the patio lots, it also has a one-car garage. The roof will have to be replaced relatively soon, but it’s clean and ready to go with new appliances and new flooring. It just needs a lot of love, but again, it’s priced at $369,000 which is $10,000 less than the others that need a lot of work. The other one that is in the 300’s that I like is Fern Wood court, but that is a two-bedroom two bath. It’s in the Headlands division which is well likes. 

Last for Hilton Head Plantation, we have 8 Crooked Pond Drive. It has three bedrooms and two and a half baths for $439,000. 

There is one villa for Hilton Head Plantation. It’s 2001 Hilton Head Villas and has three bedrooms and three baths and is listed for $419,000. Good price and easy living in HHP. Great area.

Spanish Wells

62 Wide Water Road is a four-bedroom four bath home listed for $1,449,000. This home exudes southern charm. You walk up to a rocky driveway turnaround. It’s a large lot. It has white columns and a brick walkway with a porch. When you come in, it has the heart of pine flooring. The home has a deep-water view, a brand-new dock, and a large garden. The kitchen has been updated. It has a nice, cozy Carolina room. It’s not your boxy, cookie cutter home. It’s very charming. They bought some land. So, they are ready to sell. They are interested in any offer. I happened to run into the seller on the way in. 

Palmetto Hall

13 Wildbird Lane has four bedrooms and three and a half baths for $500,000.

13 Ellis court is a four bedroom three and a half bath home listed for $695,000.

Both homes are decent homes. People love Palmetto Hall because they its close to the school and hospitals. I know of a lot of doctors live in Palmetto Hall. It’s a nice, small, gated community. 

Indigo Run

42 Wiler’s Creek Way has been on the market before. It has four bedrooms, four baths and two and a half baths and is listed for $1,975,000. 

18 Wedgefield Drive is a four-bedroom three bath listed for $624,000.

15 Richfield Way has four bedrooms three and a half bath home listed for $559,000.

Indigo Run has mostly stucco homes or a small combination with cedar. They are nicely appointed newer homes that are landlocked. So, just keep that in mind. Indigo Run does have two smaller automatic gated communities that are on the water. 

We did have 44 total properties. I initially felt overwhelmed on tour. There were only seven homes off plantation. I’m going to run by these because I didn’t go to any of them.

Off Plantation

246 Caesar Place is a three bedroom three and a half bath home for $325,000.

29 Jarvis Creek Lane has three bedrooms and two and a half baths and is listed for $345,000. That is in a well-liked neighborhood.

26 Jonesville Road is off of Spanish Wells. It has three bedrooms and two and a half baths for $440,000. It has stables nearby. It’s a nice low country neighborhood. 

Oakview is another well liked community with an automatic gate. 20 Sterling Point Drive is on the water off of Spanish Wells Road with four bedrooms and three and a half baths for $759,900. 

52 Timber Crest Circle has a great price point with which to enter into Hilton Head. It’s a three-bedroom two bath home listed at $295,000. 

I won’t go into the nine villas off plantation. They range everywhere from the Oaks, to Marsh Side Villa, to Summerfield, to the Preserve at Indigo Run, which is a nice professional place, but it’s a one bedroom. The Spa on Point Royal Sound, people seem to think it’s great because it’s on the water. 

I did go into 2104 The Residences at Edgewater. I’m always intrigued by these because they are right by the Palmetto Pass gate on Cross Island. It’s a three-bedroom three bath for $359,500. It was built in 2005. It has a water view and is on the first floor. These are solidly built with underground parking. It’s large, spacious and has crown molding. It’s a newer condo. Like I said, you actually have a water view off of Broad Creek. It really is for a professional. I think it’s a better value now than what you can get at the Preserve at Indigo Run. Plus, you are quick at Cross Island. 

If I look at everything I saw today, I would have to say that 15 Sam’s Point Lane is just in a great neighborhood. It has a very high-end feel. It’s listed for $1,150,000. I also love 62 Widewater which is also a four-bedroom four bath listed at $1,449,000.

If you are trying to get entry-level, I would say 32 Cypress Marsh Drive which is a three-bedroom two bath home listed for $369,000. That is a low price. 

The most expensive one was not my favorite – 7 Charles Fort Place. It was listed at $3,595,000.

So, there are lots of good things on the market. We also had five land plots off of the Paddocks. I guess they are trying to go and sell again. They are all under $75,000. So, whether you want to build or buy something in a fantastic location, there is a lot on Hilton Head. It’s a great place to be. Thanks, and I’ll see you next week guys!

Hilton Head Homes Tour Central - Oct. 24, 2018

Good day blog readers!

Folly Field

Today I started with a new build on four floors at 118 Sandcastle Court. It is nice, bright, clean, and new. It has four bedrooms and four and a half baths. Everything is new. Tile floors that look like wood, and basic cabinetry. It has a view over the lagoon and the fountain that runs all day, quite a soothing sound. It’s a short view, because you have tall homes on the other side of the lagoon. Nevertheless, it’s priced at $624,900 and close to the beach. 

By the way, I have the lot right next to it, which is 116 Sandcastle Court for $175,000. So, there’s also great potential for a new build close to the beach. 

Condo wise, we have 6E Fiddler Cove Villa - two bedrooms and two baths for $149,500.

B143 Hilton Head Beach in Tennis Ocean Villa is a one bedroom one bath listed for $144,900. 

Port Royal.

36 Scarborough Head Road with four bedrooms and three and a half baths listed for $645,000. It has a funky curb appeal and it’s a very dated house. You drive right into it, because it’s at the 90-degree street part of Scarborough Head. It has a beautiful lagoon view and it’s light and bright inside with an open kitchen. Tile floors throughout. The driveway is a little cracked, and the roof has granule loss that is tremendous. So, it does need some monies put into it. It’s priced okay.

Next is 23 Scarborough Head Road. It’s another four bedroom three and a half bath listed for $679,000. For a little more you are getting pavers on the driveway. You are getting a lot of outdoor space. There are three or four different areas with chimneys, lanais, etc., but it doesn’t have a water view. The difference is that it has a wooded view. It also has a two-car garage. It’s better maintained with better curb appeal. It has much better landscaping. It has a few water features and lots of outdoor space. It has an open kitchen and it is the perfect place for a chef. 

Next was 44 Outpost Lane, a three bedroom four and a half bath for $748,000. Outpost is a different area. There are fewer trees than there are in Scarborough Head Road. It has newer buildings and very spacious lots. It has that open feel as you drive through. That’s the big difference. This one does have a three-car garage underneath and it is stucco built. It has a nice, newer look with oak floors and different floors in the master, which is on the first floor. It has an office. You’ve got coffered ceilings and trace ceilings. There is a lot of wainscoting. It has a pretty deck with green grass and a long, very pretty, lagoon view. The deck runs along the entire house. The master is large with a beautiful bathtub, marble flooring and a closet, but it stands all by itself. It’s kind of odd that it is off the kitchen, but there is not bedroom attached to it. It does have an exterior door that goes out to the decking. The decking, by the way, is hearty plank. So, it has a much better maintenance than with your typical wood. It’s an interesting price with nice curb appeal and a newer home.

There was one villa in the Port Royal area. Lyons Villa #1 has four bedrooms and four and a half baths for $589,900. You all know that I don’t go into those, but I just thought that I would give you that information.

Palmetto Dunes

The first home on our list in Palmetto Dune is 32 Mooring Buoy, a three bedroom two and a half bath house listed for $875,000. It’s a split level with a carport on the main road. There is an elderly couple currently here. It is very well maintained. It has a nice little screened porch. The wood decking needs a little bit of work. Your view is to other homes on the beach-ocean side. It’s clean as a whistle. It’s your basic house. The carpeting does need to be replaced. The cabinetry is older, but it could be cleaned up and be a nice little home for someone. The biggest challenge on this house will be to do a turnaround driveway. It’s very difficult to back out of, and it is on the main road. It’s kind of tight with the parking. The carport, you can get out of okay, but it’s on a little stilt. So, it’s a pretty basic house. 

9 Catboat is a five-bedroom five bath and three half bath house listed for $4,599,000. Obviously, this is ocean front. It’s a newer built home with a two-car garage with single doors. It’s a full stucco home and looks like it’s been maintained okay. Price seems a bit high.

29 Sea Lane has five bedrooms and five and a half baths for $1,299,000. Has a very contemporary door, but it has too many floorings in it. It’s kind of spread out on one level and from the outside feels bigger than it really is. The kitchen is black with wooden cabinets. It has a pretty view. It’s okay. It has been on the market before, and it’s just one of these houses that is just eh. 

Next, we have 12 Full Sweep with four bedrooms, four baths, and two half baths listed for $1,595,000. It has a beautiful pool and sitting area outside. The curb appeal is nice. It has the hearty plank siding, which is good. The house is kind of choppy. When you walk in you see the stairs and the dining room. Then, you come to the left to see the kitchen. It’s just a little on the choppy side, but it has a beautiful view and is probably a great family home. The only thing that I don’t care for – and it’s a person thing – is that the island has a tile top with the thick type of grout that catches food and oil. I would not want an island with tile and wide grout. Other than that, it has nice curb appeal for a family home and is well maintained. It does have a cat smell though. There are two cats in there. So, I’m having a hard time breathing. So, keep that in mind. 

Last on the list is 43 Offshore which is a four bedroom four and a half bath home listed for $775,000. It has a pool and a wooded view. You can tell it’s on the rental market. You come in and you have two steps down that are wood to get to a small family area and to the patio outside. The home looks okay. It just doesn’t have much appeal. It is very dark inside. 

There are a few villas behind Palmetto Dunes that I should mention.

6201 Hampton Place Villa has three bedrooms and three baths for $1,250,000. 

The Moorings Villa #5 is a two bedroom two and a half bath for $425,000.

279 Turnberry Village Villas has three bedrooms and two baths for $429,000.

81110 Windover Dunes Villa is a three-bedroom three bath listed for $769,300.

Lastly, 7535 Yacht Club Villa is a three-bedroom three bath for $466,900. That is in the Shelter Cove area of Palmetto Dunes. 

Off Plantation 

62 Jib Sail Court is a three bedroom two and a half bath house listed for $329,000. It has a one-car garage. These are built kind of basic, but they are in a great, entry-level neighborhood with small children. It’s very conveniently located in Yacht Cove. 

The other Off Plantation was a villa. 96 Woodlake Villa has two bedrooms and two and a half baths for $155,000. That is on Mathew’s Drive Central near the Port Royal Plaza. 

Long Cove

Long Cove is a gated community that has a very high initiation fee. You have to be a part of the golf club when you buy in there. POA is $12,021 a year, but if you are going to keep a house for ten years, you get a lot more house for your money.

So, our first one is 3 Grove Court. Three bedrooms and three baths for $519,000. It is a wood structure with wood steps with siding of a funky green color. Asphalt shingles. It’s an old-school home that has been well maintained and has been on the market before. Great view. Very old-school windows, and it looks over a lagoon and a far away golf course. You do have sliders, and it looks like they must have pulled the deck off, because the sliders are large. They all need to be redone, but it is priced properly. It has a deck on the side. It’s almost like being in a fishbowl. For someone that wants to have an entry level all on one floor, this would be nice. It does need a lot of updating, but for a couple hundred thousand you could certainly make this house extravagant. The curb appeal will still be of a house with high ceiling and small windows with a boxy look.

Our second showing in Long Cove is 287 Long Cove Drive. It’s a four bedroom three and a half bath home for $699,000 and has been on the market before. It has the half-rounded windows all over the place. The living room is dark and to the right. It has potential and it has a nice view over the lagoon. There isn’t a pool. It’s dated. My guess is that it’s about 20 years old. You have brick steps going up and some crushed oyster shells. It has a two-car garage tucked on the side. There’s an octagon in the bedroom. So, it’s priced appropriately. 

371 Long Cove Drive with four bedrooms, three baths, and two half baths listed for the same price, $699,000. This home has a wider, lighter and brighter kitchen compared to the 287 Long Cove Drive and has a pool and a lagoon view. It doesn’t have as good of a curb appeal. It is smaller with less square footage, and for the same price it has the same type of kitchen with the white GE appliances and oak wood floors. It does have the master on the first floor and a half bath. It’s dated but nice with nice trim. The dining room is raised. The formal dining room is kind of like an empty space. It has the rounded windows again. So, it’s priced properly.

Last in Long Cove, we have 9 Loomis Ferry Road, a four-bedroom, four bath, two half bath home for $799,000. This one has been staged. It also has the older cabinets, but they have been painted. The paint colors are very promising, and you pay a hundred thousand dollars more. It does have a nice curb appeal. New countertops with a marble look with a gorgeous but short marsh view, and until someone builds, you even have a water view from outside on the deck. Lots of outdoor entertaining space but not pool.  So, again, it’s another okay home in Long Cove.

Shipyard

We have one home in the Shipyard community, 18 Misty Cove. Two bedrooms and two baths for $435,000 for a patio lot with a one-car garage. They put vinyl wood floors in. It looks like it’s a flip. It’s cleaned up okay. Considering what the one down the street went for that was a three bedroom and had a lot more upgrades, this is just a basic house, but again, it’s a nice entry-level. 

We also have a villa in Shipyard. I’m not going to go see it, but just so you know, it’s 126 Evian Villas. It has two bedrooms and two and a half baths and is listed for $318,000. 

Wexford

The first home in Wexford is 8 Berkshire Court. It has four bedrooms and four and a half baths for $595,000. It has a nice lagoon view and good curb appeal for a patio lot. You have to really love pillars, because there are about five of them over the garages. It has tongue and groove drawers. It’s all on one floor. You do have a sunken living room. The kitchen is a little dated, but you could paint the cabinets. It does have a stackable washer and dryer, which, for Wexford just doesn’t jive, but it is a good entry-level for Wexford. It has nice, very tall wooden entry doors. So, it would probably be well priced in the low fives. 

37 Bridgetown Road is a four bedroom four and a half bath listed for $1,249,000. This home is 3,500 square feet. It has a three-car garage and very steep brick steps leading up to the house. It has an antique door that, I guess, is kind of funky. There is a boat on the other side, and, of course, you see your neighbors. The sliders are old. The kitchen is dated. It is beautifully done, but it seems very high for what you are getting. You even have the gold bathroom fixtures in the master. So, it really seems a bit high for what you are getting, but, again, if you want to park your boat outside, there aren’t a lot of options right now in Wexford.

That concludes our Central Tour for October 24th, 2018. It’s really hard to pick a favorite this time. Nothing really wowed me. I would almost have to say 23 Scarborough with four bedrooms and three and a half baths at $679,000. It doesn’t have the view, but I like that it had so many outdoor spaces to entertain. Again, this one was a tough one, because none of them really stood out. 

18 Misty Cove is an entry-level at $435,000, and, I guess, 8 Berkshire Court in Wexford at $595,000 is a good entry-level if you want to be in Wexford. This one was tough, because nothing really stood out as a wow. 

Don't forget that I can help you with any homes, villas or lot as I specialize in the gated communities of Hilton Head Island. Call me today!

Hilton Head Realtor Tour South - Oct. 17, 2018

There were 50 properties today on tour. A busy busy long day! Showing property in between also! Some of the ones on tour are villas primarily in Sea Pines. There are ten villas in Sea Pines. 

South Beach

Let’s start with 1 Gadwall Road that is in the South Beach area of Sea Pines. It has five bedrooms and five baths and is well priced at $1,175,000. It has the kitchen downstairs. It is updated and does great rental numbers. It has a small little pool. The best features about the home are the price, and its location to the beach, and its location to South Beach.

Next, we have 26 Baynard Cove Road which is a three bedroom three and a half bath for $648,000. It’s a two story with two one-car garages. It’s very choppy inside. It has been on the market before. It’s choppy and dated. So, it needs a lot of updating. The plus on this one is its proximity to the beach and being on Baynard Cove. 

7 Painted Bunting Road is a four bedroom four and a half bath house listed for $2,200,000. It is very nice, elegant, and stately, but it is a little on the dark side. 

As a comparison, I also went to 6 West Beach Lagoon Road. It is a five bedroom five and a half bath for $2,350,000. It has a nice curb appeal. Beach Lagoon is known as the Gold Coast. It’s a little further from the beach than Painted Bunting, but it has more bedrooms and a sort of grandchildren area over the bonus room. It has nice little details, furnishings, and a pretty golf view. So, this one was almost more attractive. 

117 North Sea Pines Drive has four bedrooms and four baths with two half baths for $929,000. It is a bit pricey. It has a beautiful lagoon view, and it’s really close to the Plantation Club. It’s an easy walk to the beach. It has nice brick Savannah pavers when you come in. You can tell they have updated it, but it’s still kind of a choppy house. It’s a great party house I think. It would be better if it was in the 8’s instead of $929,000, but I guess they are trying to get their money out of it, which I totally understand. 

Next is 56 Deer Run Lane with three bedrooms three baths for $825,000. It has a pool and nice maple floors. It has a two-car garage and is all on one level. It has a very open feel. It’s a basic home, but it’s a nice space and is priced okay. It’s very close to the beach.

16 Deer Run Lane is a three-bedroom three bath home for $619,000. This one has been on the market before. It had a couple of other realtors. It has a big ol’ tree and kind of a funky floor plan. Again, for a quirky buyer, this could be very interesting. It does have two-car carport that needs to be enclosed. It’s partial stucco and it looks like it has even been added on to. So, it’s kind of hard to work, but, again, Deer Run Lane is well liked and at $619,000 you could do some work for it. 

18 Gunnery Lane has four bedrooms four bathrooms and is listed for $829,000. It’s got a two-car garage.It’s a split-level house. It has a good bedroom separation. It’s more like a home. You really feel enclosed in the back. There is not a lot of breathing there. It’s a lot of house. It’s kind of set back. So, you have a big front yard, but the backyard space is very limited and there is a big wall to the left of the house next door. So, you know, it has the feel. It’s priced properly, but you have to like that wooden entrance. 

12 Harleston Green has three bedrooms and three and a half baths for $1,595,000. It is in a beautiful setting. You walk in to a Savannah brick patio area. It has a nice fountain and a very good feel. You come to the right and you have a very cozy family room. To the left you’ve got beautiful heart of pine floors and little shelves underneath the stairwell – intricate carpentry. It has a beautiful golf view and a nice pool. There is a gorgeous kitchen with a butler’s pantry, and then an office with a lot of storage toward the laundry room and the garage. It has high-end finishes. I would say its biggest drawback is that it is only a three bedroom and that the kitchen sort of has a breakfast nook, but you are kind of tucked away. It’s really done for formal entertaining and not for a casual family style. It’s a gorgeous house – 12 Harleston Green. There is a house next door that is also an option for someone who would want to update it themselves.

Club Course Area

59 Wood Duck Road is a three bedroom two and half bath house for $489,000. It has a lot of Savannah brick when you come in, and then, when you come into the entryway, to your right you have your bedrooms. Then, you step down into the living room and the kitchen. Cathedral ceilings and a lot of sunlight with a nice golf view. It seems a bit high for not having garages and for the condition, but there is not a lot on the market at that price. So, if you are okay with a sunken living room and going up into it and then down into the house it would be okay. It does have a bit of a smell to it.

99 Governor’s Road has three bedrooms and two baths for $565,000. That has been on the market before. They have lowered the price. It needs a lot of updating and creativity. It’s on the curve of Governor’s Road a busy throughway, especially now that Greenwood Drive is being properly repaved. It’s kind of a funky house. So, you have to have a lot of imagination, and, ultimately, you still have a three-bedroom two bath at $565,000.

77 Governor’s Road is a four bedroom three and a half bath for $695,000. A redo. Nicely done cosmetically and not a lot of charm. Eh.

Next is 32 Oak Court with three bedrooms and two baths listed for $489,000. It’s a really, really cute house. It has a two-car garage. It’s on a corner lot. It has really nice curb appeal, especially if you love working in the kitchen. You’ve got a long, expansive view from the kitchen. It does only have a breakfast nook, and then, there’s the dining room area. You do have a little outside firepit. It’s cute as a button with good bedroom separation. It’s just not that open floor plan. It has beautiful curb appeal as you walk to the property. I’m surprised this one is still on the market.

141 Club Course Drive has four bedrooms and four and a half baths for $600,000. I thought, “Wow!” When I drove up, it’s at the tippy tip end. You couldn’t get further from the beach and further into Club Course. It actually backs up to Tide Point Road and Point Comfort Road. So, you do have a lot of noise, but it’s very private. It’s nicely updated and really cute. It’s a basic house, but really turn-key and priced very well at $600,000. It’s got a long driveway and a two-car garage with a cute backyard, but you do have road noise from Point Comfort and a little bit from Palmetto Bay. 

55 Hearthwood Drive is a four bedroom four and a half bath for $1,250,000. It is very high price for that house. 

9 South Live Oak Road has three bedrooms and two baths for $729,000. It is one of the prettiest streets in Sea Pines. It’s very close to the beach. It has nice lagoons. It’s priced at lot value. The house in itself is extremely choppy, and the bathrooms are tight. Basically, it’s a tear down. It is a very hard remodel and it is kind of dark. 

10 Willow Oak Road is a four bedroom four and a half bath for $645,000. I know that house well. It has been on the market for a couple of years. The tough part about this one is the funky floor plan. All of the bathrooms need to be redone. It has a two-car garage. It has a very long golf view, which is the prettiest part of it. You just need someone with a lot of ideas, because the one fourth bedroom and bath is added to the left. The kitchen is kind of cramped. The living room is all by itself. So, it needs to be reconfigured. The dining room is really far from the kitchen, kind of in its own little newer space. So, it’s kind of a funky plan, and there are about eight pines in the back that just bring a lot of debris down, but, again, it’s well priced to be in the Red Maple Willow Oak area.

Speaking of Red Maple, 26 Red Maple Road is back on the market. It has four bedrooms and four and a half baths. It’s listed at $759,900. This one has a pool. It has rented well. It has a metal roof, but a carport. It has a golf view and is close to the beach. It’s in the cul-de-sac of Red Maple. It has good rental numbers, but it’s beat up, and it’s an old school house with all of the windows and doors etc. So, it’s just an old school house with a funky floorplan, but a cool and different house. 

Greenwood Forest

2 Dewberry Lane is marketed as a three-bedroom two bath house and priced at $499,000. It’s priced well. It has a nice curb appeal. It’s very, very cute. It has a side entrance and is beautifully done inside. Everything has been updated and is brand spanking new. It’s very tasteful. I just couldn’t find the third bedroom. So, it’s really a two bedroom it seems to me. It’s priced ok for a 2 bedroom updated at $499,000. Could be a good alternative to a villa?

Then we have 31 Wisteria Lane with a nice open feel. It has five bedrooms and four baths and is listed for $649,000. It is a little further from the beach and all of the amenities. This one is tastefully done with nice stone floors and an open floor plan.

I also went outside of the gates of Sea Pines to 4 Jacana Street. It has three bedrooms and four baths for $924,900. It has a pool in the front and is in a nice, quiet neighborhood. It has a three-car garage. It’s an interesting house for someone that wants to live on the beach. 

Off Plantation

Cedar Woods and Point Comfort area, we had 14 Song Sparrow Lane. It’s a three-bedroom two bath home for $649,900. It’s a little high for the neighborhood, but this one has a gorgeous marsh view. It’s completely updated. The kitchen cabinets are much taller than your typical cabinets. It’s very tastefully done. It is beautifully appointed. It just, maybe, needs to be at $599,000, but you never know. Gorgeous but small. Nice outside deck overlooking the marsh.

29 Kingbird Lane is a three-bedroom two bath for $309,993. That’s kind of a wild number. Again, it’s a great entry level into a nice neighborhood. It’s really, really cute. You do see the houses next door from the back, but it’s got a nice front yard with parking spots and is very tastefully done. It’s a great price.

I think that about covers it. There were some condos. I did go see 555 Ocean Course Villa. It’s a beautifully updated two-bedroom two bath house for $622,500. It has been completely gutted. 

Then, we also have 370 Briarwood. That is a two-bedroom two bath home. There are no short-term rentals in there. It’s listed at $539,000. Those have the high ceilings. It has similar architecture to Ocean Course Villas, but just in a very different neighborhood. 

I also have some other condos. I will go through those quickly. We had 50 this time, which was a lot. 

1836 Beach Side Tennis is a two-bedroom two bath house. They are sneaking up in price. This one is $765,000. 

A very unique Clipper Court faces the front. 800 Clipper Court has been totally redone. The price reflects that. It’s a three bedroom three and a half bath listed for $1,150,000.

904 Cutter Court Villa is priced nicely for a two-bedroom two bath home at $399,000. 

346 Greenwood Garden Villa – remember those. You cannot short-term rent in there. It is a three-bedroom three bath for $520,000. It’s a great location. That is the price they are going for now. 

862 Ketch Court Villa has one bedroom for $437,500. That seems a little on the high side. It better be very beautiful. Still, that’s very high for a one bedroom. 

3369 Lake Forrest Villa is a three bedroom two and a half bath for $475,000. At first, that one seems high. It does have a garage. It has been completely updates. It’s very tasteful and turn-key.

We have 2357 Racket Club Villa with one bedroom at $249,000.

Lastly, 296 Stoney Creek Villa has two bedrooms and two and a half baths for $385,000. The issue on that one is it does have the sunken living room. 

For my favorite, I’d almost have to say that the one that sticks out is 14 Song Sparrow Lane. It’s not in a gated community, but I always have a soft spot for marsh views. I like that one and then, if money wasn’t an object, I would say 6 West Beach Lagoon Road. It’s a great place for the grandkids at $2,350,000. 

That about covers it. There are a couple great listings out there. There is good inventory and it’s a good time to buy in Hilton Head. 

See you next week. Thanks so much!

Hilton Head North Tour - Oct. 10, 2018

Hilton Head North Tour 10-10-2018 – Realtor 

Today is the realtor tour North End Hilton Head Island. Today we had over 40 properties to look at. Some of them were cancelled due to Hurricane Michael. I will mention those at the end of this blog. 

Windmill Harbor

There was only one townhouse there at 45 Harbor Passage. It’s a three bedroom three and a half bath for $729,900. It has a spectacular water view being high tide. There was a spacious laundry and large master with a closet. There was new carpeting everywhere. It has a large oversized shower in the master. It does have funky hexagon sinks. It’s clean and ready to go. The cabinetry in the living room and kitchen are old and original, but nicely painted. The wooden decking outside, and the railings, are older. I believe this was a foreclosure snapped up in 2015 for $550K, and they just kind of cleaned it up. 

Hilton Head Plantation

48 Royal James has three bedrooms, three and a half baths, and is listed for $550,000. This is a cute house. It was at the end of the cul-de-sac toward the back gate of Hilton Head Plantation. It has nice redone concrete walkway and driveway. It has a large dining room that is open to the kitchen. It has dark wooden floors, and basic, but nice, cabinetry. It has a large laundry room, smooth ceilings, and new windows, which I always love, because that is a very big expense. It has a nice backyard space. It is a very private lot. It has an upstairs with an added sort of bonus room office, and another plus is that you have a walk-in attic instead of the dropdown. 

Next was 8 Arrow Wood Road, a three-bedroom two bath home for $385,000. It’s a patio lot with a one car garage. It does have original windows. It has a deck. It has carpet and maple floors in the kitchen with decent cabinetry. The entryway was kind of funky. It has a large mudroom/laundry/desk area and an asphalt driveway. It was okay. 

5 Florencia is a three bedroom three and a half bath house listed for $529,000. It had a newer two car garage door. That was nice. It has a gorgeous open wide golf view and outdoor space with a fire pit. It has wide plank vinyl with nice barn doors. The original bathroom was in bathroom number two, but they had an updated tub and shower and vanity in the master bathroom. 

6 Seabrook Landing Drive has four bedrooms and four and a half baths for $912,000. It has a brick walkway with a turnaround driveway. So, nice curb appeal. That is a definite A++. It has high ceilings. It has a pretty lagoon view. It has an open kitchen with a fireplace, and a nice wood deck. The grassy area and the lagoon view were really nice. It has some funky wall niches, but great curb appeal. It’s in a very high-end area. It seems a bit high at that price, but, you know, okay.

28 Bear Creek Drive has three bedrooms and three baths for $549,900. It’s a combination of stucco and wood. The paint job was okay. I could not get the lock to work. I was tired of fighting it. I did peek in. It had a killer marsh view. It needed updating, but the market can accommodate that. The gutters need to be cleaned and the roof was a little beat up, but, again, it has a beautiful, gorgeous marsh view as many in that neighborhood do.

1 Salt Wind Way has three bedrooms and two baths and is listed for $399,999. I might as well say $400,000. It has newer nice gutters. It is a small cute home. It presents very nicely. 

6 Black Rail is a three-bedroom three bath home listed for $400,000. The roof was just okay. It has nice floors and basic cabinets. It’s nice and bright with a golf view. The windows have a nook seating in the dining room, which I thought was cute. Plus, it had a breakfast nook. It is cute, light, and bright. It is well priced, especially for the Dolphin Head area. For a small family, or a single mom, it would be a great cute home. I like that one.

5 Sugar Pine Lane is a three-bedroom two bath house listed for $409,000. You’d better like brown. It’s brown, brown, brown. It has brown pebbles of the early eighties. It has a one-car garage. Pavers and certain stuff to the house are a bit worn and tired. It’s another patio lot. They painted the original cabinets a nice white. It’s not as good as Black Rail. It has a funky entry with the tile. It has a sunken living room, wooded view, and a cat smell with popcorn ceiling. It is worn out and tired, so it leaves more to be desired. There are plenty of other ones. 

29 Fernwood Court in the Spring Lake area is a three-bedroom two bath home for $329,000. It’s at the end of a cul-de-sac with no garage. It’s okay.

38 Oyster Shell is a three bedroom three and a half bath for $699,000. It’s in a very popular area. It’ s stucco house with a two-car garage. It has really nice curb appeal, and you can walk to the Bluff. I could not get in the house. I’m curious about that one. 

9 Stonegate has three bedroom and two and half baths and is listed for $510,000. It has high ceilings and is neat as a pin. It has a lagoon that is kind of a drop down. It has a nice grassy paver area in the back. It has nice wood floors and a two-car garage. It has good curb appeal with a newer roof. It’s a nice turn key. 

44 Savannah Trail has four bedrooms and three and half bath for $625,000. It has a really nice dramatic open floor plan with a long lagoon view, which is a definite plus. It has large wide plank floor. It has nice finishes and is an elegant house. I liked 44 Savannah Trail.

Crooked Pond in Hilton Head Plantation

There were two homes in the Crooked Pond area.

7 Twisted Cay is a three-bedroom two bath home listed for $469,000. At first, I thought it was a bit overpriced, but it has a very pretty long lagoon view. It is on a cul-de-sac. It is a little dated. It has a cute corner room that is a Carolina room that is very nice. It is open, light, and bright, but again, dated. I think it’s a very unique lot. It’s a little on the pricey side, but nevertheless a great opportunity because of the view and the location which you can’t change.

14 Sweetwater Lane is a four bedroom three and a half bath house that is, again, one dollar below $500,000. It is a “Lowcountry” style house, which tends to be a little darker. I didn’t like that the rusted entry was rusted paint on the window side. It has a huge green grass backspace to play, but it’s a little darker of a home. It was at the end of the cul-de-sac but a bit darker and it seems a little pricey even though, I guess, they are counting on it being a four bedroom.

Headlands Neighborhood in Hilton Head Plantation

112 Headlands Drive is a three-bedroom two bath house for $425,000. It’s priced well for the Headlands, but you have original windows, you have a two-car garage that is not connected. It does have a wooded view and, sort of, a partial golf view to the right. It has a small kitchen. It’s on a large lot. It did not make it for me, even at that lower price.

37 Cypress Marsh is a three-bedroom two bath listed for $449,000. They put new pine straw out. It has, really, no curb appeal. The sun beats right into the front of the house. It didn’t impress me. 

70 Cypress Marsh road has three bedrooms and two baths listed for $399,000. This one is $50,000 less. The front door needs to be painted. It needs new hardware. The gutters need to be cleaned, but it’s got a really nice view. It has great potential and is certainly more interesting. 70 Cypress Marsh has big potential. It is priced well.

2 Headlands is a three-bedroom two bath listed for $395,750. It has poor curb appeal. It has a funky stucco and wood combo. It’s also on the corner of the main road coming into Hilton Head Plantation and Headlands Drive. I wasn’t that impressed, but once you got in it had a nice bedroom separation. The two bedrooms to the master had wood floors. It has a nice cozy kitchen. It shows nicer and is very well maintained. So, again, for the right price point it needs little to be done. 

Indigo Run

I first went to 14 Avalon. It is a villa. Avalon villas are right outside Indigo. They are three bedroom and three bath villas. They have a two-car garage. It’s very simple living, but with a great floor plan. At $399,000 it’s the best priced one there. I think they are a plus because of their location and price. You can’t beat them. They are newer built, also. 

13 Dawson Way is a three bedroom two and a half bath for $538,000. It has high ceilings and is nice and cozy. It’s priced okay for Indigo Run.

Lastly, I went to 55 Lancaster Place. It’s a three bedroom three and a half bath listed for $539,000. It borders the outside gate of Indigo run. It seems to be a very noisy road. I don’t know if it’s marshland. The house is okay inside. If I’m spending that kind of money though, I certainly don’t want to be in the cul-de-sac where two sides have a main road. 

Forgive me, these are the homes that I did not go to. I was out five hours. I ran out of time and some of these were cancelled. So, I’m just going to run through them so that you know, and I will be happy to go look at these for you. Remember that each address has a live link to give you more details on every property, and I will be happy to look any of these up for you. 

246 Caesar Place has three bedrooms and three and a half baths for $325,000. 

21 Crosswinds drive is a three bedroom two and a bath home listed for $549,000.

32 Graham Lane has four bedrooms and four and a half baths for $625,000.

14 Gold Oak is a four bedroom three and a half bath house listed for $289,000. That’s a wooded view. The water views are a lot more. 

Last, off of Plantation is 8F Summerfield Villas. It is a two-bedroom two bath listed for $180,000.

Hilton Head Plantation 

I did not go see 53 Big Woods Drive. It is a four bedroom three and a half bath listed for $500,000. It’s vacant and easy to show. 

6 Glenmoor Place is a three-bedroom three bath house for $577,500. It’s priced well. These are newer places.

7 Charlesfort Place has six bedrooms and seven baths listed for $3,595,000. This is in Ribaut Island with a killer water view.

7 Warbler Lane is a three-bedroom two bath for $399,000. 

Palmetto Hall

There were six homes for sale in Palmetto Hall. Again, due to time constraints I was not able to see any of them. A couple of them are priced a little on the high side. Nevertheless, I will be happy to talk to you about any of these or other ones in Palmetto Hall Plantation.

8 Ellis Court is a three bedroom three and a half bath for $545,000.

314 Fort Howell Drive is a five bedroom three and a half bath for $570,000.

7 Hatteras Court has five bedroom and four and a half baths listed for $725,000.

9 McGuire Court is a four bedroom three and a half bath home listed for $529,000.

68 Sedge Fern Drive is a four bedroom three and a half bath house listed for $609,000. It seems a little high for a patio lot.

2 Tucker Ridge Court is a four bedroom three and a half bath for $419,000.

Lastly, but not least, we have a fabulous home on Spanish Wells. 61 Widewater Road is a four bedroom four and a half bath for $999,000.

That concludes the Open House Tour for October 10thin the North end of Hilton Head Island. Having 23 houses in Hilton Head Plantation alone really took up a lot of my time. So, I apologize that Palmetto Hall did not cut it and neither did the off plantations, which I don’t typically do anyway. 

This was kind of a tough one to pick a favorite. That always happens on the North Tour for me. I’m a little iffy about that 45 Harbor Passage, especially being a three bedroom three and a half in the 700’s. I wish that were lower. 5 Sugar Pine Lane had a smell. I didn’t care for that. 

I almost have to pick 6 Black Rail Lane a three-bedroom three bath at $400,000. It had a very pretty view. Of course, if I had to go to Indigo Run, I like 13 Dawson Way the best at $538,000 with three bedrooms and two and a half baths. 

That’s all for today. Thanks so much, and I hope you come back next week. J

Realtor Tour Central - Oct. 3, 2018 Hilton Head Island North Tour

Today is our Hilton Head Central Tour October 3rd, 2018. A lot of good properties. 

Wexford

The first home we saw is 27 Yorkshire Drive, a three bedroom three and a half bath for $649,000. This one has been on the market before. It’s very dated. When you come in – first of all, the windows are black. The door is brown. When you come up, you have eight steps to deal with right away. So, it doesn’t really have a welcoming feel. You’ve got a rounded wall. So, you’ve got to go either left or right. Right takes you to the living room. Left takes you to the half bath, the laundry, and then the kitchen. The kitchen has tile counter with grout which I cannot stand. You’ve got bigger tile in the island, but it’s very date with wood trim. So, it needs a lot of work. It’s just a tough house. 

Next was 4 Knightsbridge Lane. It’s a five bedroom six and a half bath home for $1,850,000. This was a palatial feel home. It has a bonus room upstairs, a pool room that can be used as the fifth bedroom, and a very large bonus room. It has a pool with a spa. You’ve got a 70-foot dock to place your yacht. It’s one person living in it as a second home which is why they are selling it. It has a very nice turnaround driveway and a beautiful curb appeal. 

Long Cove Plantation.

First, we went into 1 Combahee Road. It has three bedrooms and two and half baths for $437,500. It’s a cute little home. It has a nice lagoon view. It’s dated, but it has a lot of potential. Right off the kitchen it has a cute screened in porch with wooden decking etcetera. So, it’s a pretty basic home. 

Our second home was 1 Pendergrass Court, a four-bedroom four bath home for $775,000. It has a very contemporary feel. It’s been updated to the wahoos. It’s very sleek looking with a European style. The home has a gorgeous golf view. Nothing needs to be done to this home.

Lastly in Long Cove, we had 5 Rosebank Lane. It’s a four bedroom four and a half home for $950,000. This one needs a lot of updating. It’s a very choppy house. It has a dated kitchen from the 80s. The laundry room is all the way on the other side of the master. The colors were horrendous even though the cabinetry and countertops were very high. They all need to be updated. 

Shipyard

The first one we went to was 37 Kingston Road. It has three bedrooms and two and a half baths and is listed for $749,000.  I found it to be a little expensive, however, this thing has been done to every little detail. It even has nice hardware on the two-car garage door. They even have nice hardware on the front door. It’s turn-key, but I found it a little expensive for Shipyard. Again, nothing needs to be done to this house. So, I was pleasantly surprised. 

The second one was 3 Port Au Prince Road, a five bedroom three and a half bath home for $699,900. The curb appeal is pretty nice. It is kind of on a corner lot. It is a very choppy house, and it is extremely beat up. There are lots of different finishes. I felt like I was dealing with multiple personalities. It was not my favorite. I would say 37 Kingston Road if you want Shipyard, despite the price. 

Port Royal Plantation

The first one was 9 Rampart Lane with three bedrooms and three and a half baths listed for $899,000. It has endless marsh and water views. It is cozy in a nice little cul-de-sac. It has a really large swimming pool for someone who likes to do laps. It is multilevel. I didn’t care for the rounded garage doors. The house needs updating, but, again, it’s very private and secluded with a killer marsh view.

4 Ordnance Place with three bedrooms and two and a half baths listed for $479,900. It’s a small house with a turnaround driveway on the corner. It needs updating, but it’s great for one or two people. It didn’t thrill me at all. 

2 Magazine Place. It has very high ceilings to the point that it’s almost odd. You have a fishbowl entry way in the living room right when you come in. It has three bedrooms and three baths for $569,000. Again, it’s a little odd. It’s hard to create something as wanted. 

48 Fairway Winds Place, a four bedroom four and a half bath home for $685,000. It’s really close to the beach. I like the price. It has a small kitchen that also needs updating. It, kind of, felt very squeezed in. Even though the curb appeal is good, and it was at the end of the cul-de-sac. It has a golf view with the lagoon, but on one side you have the back of another house. So, it was okay. 

For you southern belles, I went to 18 North Port Royal Drive, which is a five bedroom four and a half bath home for $1,625,000. It’s a second-row beach home. It has a little view of the beach with two staircases coming up – all in wood – which is a little dated and needs a lot of maintenance. It’s very southern with a big wrap around porch in the front. It’s choppy inside, but very cozy. It has an open kitchen and a back porch. You can walk to the beach. It’s an interesting home. 

135 Coggins Point Road is a four-bedroom three bath home for $699,900. It’s all on one level and is really set back. It has a two-care garage. It’s all been cleaned up and painted. I’m disappointed that they were the cheapest cabinets possible. They were white, but laminate. It’s clean as a whistle and ready to go.

1 Ensis Road is a four bedroom two and a half bath house listed for $554,000. It’s back on the market. It’s a tough one, because it needs a lot of work. 

Lastly, we have 19 Donax Road. It’s a four-bedroom four bath house listed for $2,650,000. It is first row on a double lot. The house needs a lot of work. It has a drop-down living room. The kitchen has cheap cabinets in it. It’s kind of disappointing, but it has a very dramatic feel. It was great in the heydays of the 90s. 

Palmetto Dunes.  

Eight homes on tour this week. First one I saw is 113 Mooring Buoy with five bedrooms and five and a half baths for $1,825,000. There’s not much to say there. The listing has since expired so I cannot give you the link, sorry.

14 Port Tack has three bedrooms and three and a half baths for $1,150,000. 

Next was 176 Mooring Buoy with five bedrooms and six and a half baths for $1,725,000. It has 4,500 square feet. It has a nice pretty golf lagoon view. 

25 Port Tack is a three-bedroom three bath home listed for $995,000. It seems a bit on the high side, but Palmetto dunes has also crept up in price. 

9 Full Sweep has three bedrooms and three and a half baths and is listed for $849,000.

49 Off Shore is a four-bedroom four bath $775,000 home. 

We had 8 Night Harbor with five bedrooms and five and a half baths with an ocean front view listed for $3,390,000.

2 Galleon has eight bedrooms and seven bathrooms listed for $2,385,000.

Obviously, all of the homes I listed in the past are rentals. None of them excited me. It’s nice to have an ocean front though. 

They also had a bunch of villas. I’m just going to run through. I’m just going to run through these real fast. 

429 Captain’s Walk Villa is a three-bedroom three bath villa listed for $760,000.

7834 Center Court Villa has two bedrooms and two bathrooms for $359,000.

57 Fazio Villa has three bedrooms and three bathrooms for $449,000. 

7160 Harbor Side is a one bedroom one bath listed for $245,000.

7150 Harbor Side is the same thing with one bedroom and one bath listed for $298,000.

942 Inverness Villa has two bedrooms and two baths listed for $328,000.

806 Ocean Cove Villa is a three-bedroom three bath listed for $595,000.

Foley Field Area

21 Sand Dollar Road is a rental machine with seven bedrooms and six and a half baths. It’s listed for $1,445,000. 

4 Azalea Street is on the market again. They did lower the price. It has three bedrooms and two baths for $427,900. It’s a little beach cottage.

We have 2 Fiddlers Cove both in building 5.

5A is a two-bedroom two bath for $181,000. That is on the first floor.

5K is on the third floor with two bedrooms and two baths listed for $164,900. 

Off- Plantation

We have five residences. I didn’t go see any of them, forgive me. 

We have 234 Caesar Place which is close to the high school and the elementary school. It has four bedrooms and two and a half baths listed for $337,900. Those are newer. You’re a little close, but it’s a cute little neighborhood. 

It’s the same for 104 Crosswinds Drive. That is off Marshland Road. It has seven bedrooms and seven and a half baths for $1,125,000.

In the same neighborhood we have 21 Mossy Oaks Lane, a four bedroom two and a half bath home listed for $599,999. The first one has a water view.

5 Sandy Beach Trail has six bedrooms and six and a half baths for $1,199,000.

Lastly, 102 Victoria Square Drive is a three bedroom three and a half bath home for $379,000.

So, for the Central Tour on October 3rd, boy, it’s hard to have a favorite. I liked 1 Pendergrass in Long Cove, the four-bedroom four bath listed for $775,000. It has a pretty view. At that price, it’s kind of hard to justify 37 Kingston Road in Shipyard for a three bedroom two and a half bath, but it’s cute and is $749,000. It’s just tough to think of Shipyard in that direction. I think those would be my two favorites. 

Thanks so much and have a great day.

Realtor Tour South - September 26, 2018 on Hilton Head Island South

Good afternoon,

I am in surgery recovery so had other agents eyes and ears on today's tour. By the way, you can click on address for more info anytime!

24 Properties in Total - about half of them condos.

Forest Beach

15 Avocet is a 4 BR 3BA for $875,000. Close to Marriott Grande Ocean. 23 Egret Street 7BR/7.5 BA for $1,925,000. 16 Firethorn Lane is a 5BR/3 BA for $775,000 was very interesting cute home with a two bedroom one bath apartment above garage that they rent out on AirBNB.  no pool, but room for a pool. The condos were 104 Ocean One Villa 3/3 for $509,000, 3041 Seascape Villa 2BR/2BA for $239,900 and 137 Shorewood Villa, 2/2 at $450,000.

Off Plantation

6 Terra Bella Trace is 6/8 for $4,495,000. 302B Palmetto Bay Dockmaster 2/2 for $350,000 with great water view and E22 Summer House 2/2 $192,000.

Sea Pines - had 8 homes and 7 villas today.

72 N. Sea Pines Drive is 4/4.5 for $1,795,000. Oooh lala - right across from Whistling Swan. Great location and view and close walk to beach. 29 Oak Court is  4BR/2 BA for $539,000. 12 Forest Drive is 3/3.5 for $849,900 and very nice! Family home and built in 2009. Not a rental and private yard. 34 Windjammer Court is on again 3/3 for $850,000. 26 Ridgewood Lane was a 5BR/4.5 at $969,000 and thoughts were that it was just ho hum. 9 Piping Plover 6/6.5 for $1,475,000 was very nice. Felt bigger than square footage shown. 27 Red Maple is 3/3 for $750,000. I know this house and its back on with $100K reduction. Interesting architecture for a unique buyer. Great location and view but trees need to be cut back - greenery infringes on deck now. 10 Baynard Cove for 4/3.5 at $899,000 was nice but all think a tad overpriced. 

378 Briarwood 2/2 at $539,000. These are always favorites and they loved it. The bump out at the end of the living room is still a screened porch (many have integrated it as indoor space/Carolina Room), but very updated villa and shows well. 141A Harbourwood Villa is 2/2 for $469,000 and looks like bathrooms have been updated since it was on last time. Nice, but the dark side of the parking lot. 884 Ketch Court 1/1 at $249,000, 1085 Lighthouse I Villa is 3/3 $1,140,000 and back on. 41 Lighthouse Road Villa 2/2 at $375,000, 534 Plantation Club Villas 2/2 for $369,000 and finally, another favorite, 2324 Racquet Club Villa 2/2 $349,500.

So its hard to pick a favorite since I did not attend so I will pick one of a friend of mine trying to sell with another colleague: 72 N. Sea Pines Drive if you like French influence and golf view. That is all for today. Back to resting I go. Have a great day!

Realtor Tour North - Sept. 19, 2018 Hilton Head Island North Tour

Hi, and welcome to the North Tour for Hilton Head Island on September 19th, 2018. Today, we have a total of 42 properties. The reason for this is that last week we had Hurricane Florence mess up our tour. So, Central Tour is kind of weaved in here. That would include the Wexford area, the Shipyard area, Long Cove and some areas that are off plantation. I probably won’t cover those today, because there are plenty of other things for the North Tour. 

We’ll start with Windmill Harbor 

Windmill Harbor 

The first one was 24 Spindle Lane. It’s a two bedroom two and a half bath for $654,900. It’s a very pretty townhouse overlooking the marina. It’s beautifully appointed. It is, however, only two bedrooms, but a very tasteful end unit and worth a look.

Next is 4 Sparwheel Lane, a three bedroom three and a half bath for $800,000. It’s a nice house. There’s not much else to say about it. 

9 Old Ferry Point is a four bedroom five and a half bath townhouse for $1.995 million. This is a gorgeous property. The water views are phenomenal. It’s a brand-new home tastefully done, and it’s being sold furnished. It has a two-car garage. On the top floor they have a huge media movie room. It’s never been occupied. It’s amazing. No expense has been spared on this one. I fell in love with it, and you know me, I’m a sucker for water views. It’s in Old Ferry Point which is a very high-end little cul-de-sac in Windmill Harbor.

13 Indian Hill Lane is a four-bedroom three bath house for $1.25 million. It’s right before you get to the wooden covered bridge, which is a peninsula of Indian Hill Point. It’s tastefully done. After coming from that expansive, open concept, very spacious home, it was a little on the tight side. The trees are kind of overgrown into the porch. It’s tastefully done but cramped. Let’s say its cozy feeling. It’s a nice home for a corner lot, and it’s in the Indian Hill Windmill Harbor.

Shipyardhad one home and one villa. 

The villa, just to mention, is 1005 Harbor Master Villa which is a two bedroom two and a half bath home for $240,000. 

The home was 44 Misty Cove which is a three-bedroom three bath listed at $529,000. I remember the house. It was sold two years ago and now it’s back on the market. It’s got new HVAC and duct work. It’s a nice house. 

Palmetto Hallhad three houses. 

5 Club Manor is a four-bedroom four bath home listed for $689,000. It’s a nice home. 

35 Tucker Ridge Court has five bedrooms and three and a half baths for $600,000. 

Last was 55 Tucker Ridge Court with four bedrooms and three baths for $419,900. 

Indigo Runhad one home. 

7 Legacy Court has three bedrooms and two and half baths for $535,000. 

Hilton Head Plantation

We began with 26 Country Club Court. It has three bedrooms and three bathrooms for $569,000. It was at the end of the cul-de-sac and all on one level. It had a cute little backyard area and a spacious and tasteful master. It has a nice golf view. It’s clean and spacious. 

305 Seabrook Drive has four bedrooms and four bathrooms for $619,000. It’s nice and clean. It has a cute lagoon view. It has stairs going up to it. The master is on the first floor. It’s spacious and clean and well-priced.

18 Ribaut Drive has three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms for $999,000. It has interesting curb appeal. It has a lot of decking in the front. It did have a stairwell right when you come in the door. You could tell back in the day it had top of the line appliances. It has a nice marsh view and dramatic architecture. It needs updating for that type of buyer. It’s priced properly. 

36 Sweet Bay Lane has three bedrooms and two bathrooms for $344,500. That is in the Spring Lake area. 

68 Myrtle Bank Road has three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms for $439,000. It’s priced well and is interesting, but I think it has a one car garage, and by the time you fix all the cracks in the driveway – the kitchen is funky. It definitely needs a new coat of paint. It’s got potential and it has a pretty golf view. There isn’t much in the backyard. So, with a little love and care that could be a cute little house. The curb appeal is okay. 

18 Virginia Rail Lane has three bedrooms and three bathrooms for $475,000. This one is dramatic and has nice architecture as you drive up. It’s in a cul-de-sac. It does have the sunken living room and dining room. The kitchen has been updated somewhat, but it is [inaudible 00:07:20]. The garage was added. It’s got newer windows with original windows in the rest of the house. 

11 Herring Gull Lane has three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms and is priced at $499,000. It’s in the Hickory Forrest neighborhood, so I’m very intrigued about this one. It has nice curb appeal. The two-car garage is a man’s dream. The kitchen has been updated and refaced with higher cabinets and the countertops are granite. The breakfast room has a peek into the water view. It has new wood floors. It’s very spacious, light and bright. It’s priced well. It has a lot of wainscoting. This one might be a best buy for sure.

44 Hickory Forrest drive is a three bedroom two and a half bathroom home priced at $528,000. It has funky doors. It’s a shame – it’s a corner lot, but it doesn’t have the right driveway for it. When I tried to go in the house the people said they were closed. So, I wasn’t able to see the house. Again, I was intrigued with Herring Gull that had a water view. So, not much to say on this one. 

The last one for Hilton Head Plantation is 3 Shadewood Court. It is in the Headlands neighborhood, which is right inside the main gate. It’s a new three-bedroom three-bathroom house for $685,000. At first, I was a little shocked on the price, but it does have a three-car garage. It has nice tall, smooth ceilings and an open floor plan with a little Carolina room. It was built in 2004. It has a large pantry with a little desk. You can tell it’s a custom-built home and not a spec home as many are in Hilton Head Plantation. It’s a lovely newer home. 

Let’s run through the rest of them. I did not go to the Wexford homes. I did not go to Palmetto Dunes home nor Long Cove. There are a lot of off plantation. We had four villas off plantation. I don’t mention those. 

Seagrass Landing had a house on 31 Seagrass Landing Court. It’s a three bedroom two and a half bath home for $432,000.

30 Corrine Lane is on the market again in Singleton. It has five bedrooms and five and a half bathrooms for $719,000. 

Gold Oakhad a few. Oak View neighborhood had three houses on this market. 29 Silver Oak Drive has three bedrooms and four bathrooms for $799,000.

25 Gold Oak Court has four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms for $359,000.

82 Gold Oak Drive is a three bedroom two and a half bath home for $330,000.

32 Graham Lane is a four-bedroom home with five bathrooms listed for $625,000.

 

In China Berry we had two properties: 10 Monticello Drive has four bedrooms and four bathrooms for $299,000.

28 China Berry Circle has three bedrooms and two bathrooms for $339,000.

90 Sandcastle Court is a four bedroom four and a half bath house for $700,000. 

Again, there’s not much to say on those. I believe the Silver Oak Drive home is a marsh view house, but, again, you’re tucked in there. It’s an open neighborhood. They do have gates. 

So, now to pick my three favorites. I would say 9 Old Ferry Point in Windmill Harbor for $1.995 million is spectacular, but, again, it’s a high pocket book price. 

If someone is looking for more value, I would have to pick 11 Herring Gull Lane with three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms for $499,000. It’s open and cozy with a little water view. It’s surrounded by million-dollar properties. 

If you want newer – this lady was so sweet – 3 Shadewood Court is a newer home that’s also in Hilton Head Plantation in The Headlands for $685,000. 

Those would be my top three. Thank you, again, for reading this and have a great day. I’ll see you next week.
