This Central Tour will be quite memorable thanks to Hurricane Florence. This Cat 4 storm looks like it will be hitting the Willmington/Wrightsville Beach area of our neighbor state, North Carolina. our thoughts and prayers are with everyone in harms way of this massive storm. We are not out of the woods yet in Hilton Head Island, but we are all breathing a sigh of relief. I have not evacuated as I am a last minute evacuee. :) Needless to say, yesterday's tour shrunk quite a bit. I only printed it out around 10am and at that time, we had one Hilton Head Beach and Tennis Ocean villa #C305, a 1BR/1BA $178,000, 30 Corrine Lane, a 5/5.5 in Singleton Beach for $719,000. I did not see either of those.

Palmetto Dunes

Palmetto Dunes had 4 homes on the market and 5 villas. One home was supposed to serve lunch but no one was there. That's ok because I was not very hungry. That was 40 Haul Away - 3/3.5 for $825,000. I loved the traditional Lowcountry architecture as you approached the home. It did have a two car garage also. The colors of the home were 'eh' but the wood inside and large windows made it very nice. Stone chimney, golf view and pool made it a great price. All appliances were white and needed updating but master on main, nice stairs and great architecture. With this short list it may win! LOL. From there went to 49 Haul Away - 4/3.5 for $895,000. It too had great bedroom separation and more updated kitchen and an extra closet in master. The 4th bedroom means 40 could have also been called 4BR. The entryway and dining space in front was wierd so I did not care for it as much as #40. Could not find 14 Port Tack and I suspect the lockbox was taken inside. Its a 3/3.5 for $1,150,000. If its the one to the right of #16, it had new paver driveway but curb appeal did not merit the price BUT I did not see the inside. Lastly, 8 Night Harbour - 5/5.5 for $3,390,000 for Palmetto Dunes Oceanfront. That one also did not have the lockbox out but I did see the pretty ocean view. Priced ok.

Shipyard

There were two condos in Shipyard and usually I do not do those as some of you readers know but with the slow day, I ventured into 252 Evian. A townhome type villa 2/2.5 for $350,000. Updated master and high ceilings and private golf view. Cute. Did not go to 1005 Harbour Master Villas. Those are deep into Shipyard and right by the fence of New Orleans Road. Not my favorites. I know what they look like and this one is priced at $240,000.

Wexford 

Lastly we had one home in Wexford Plantation, 11 Harrogate 5/6.5 for $1,549,000. Garage for 4 cars and large open feel. Three fireplaces within kitchen, outdoor space and family area. Master on first floor had exercise room and office. The one garage was nearby and the other garage closer to the kitchen area. Pool area was nice as was the golf view. Upstairs we had a pool table game area, movie theatre without chairs but room for 8 and more bedrooms. The green dark walls downstairs were not that great. Lots of nooks for cool sculptures throughout. Nice home.

To pick a favorite is almost not fair. I know a couple of homes from  Port Royal were cancelled but IF I had to pick one, 40 Haul Away had a small pool but amazing view and light - would need to put some money into it but the area could easily handle it. Nice flow. The second would be 11 Harrogate - great family home for large family wanting golf carts and room for cars and entertainment space.

Stay safe everyone and thank you for reading.
