Oh my, oh my - what a difference a week makes! This week, we had the South Tour of Hilton Head properties for the Realtor tour and twenty six homes, eight villas and two homesites. As I was going through the homes, none of them impressed me on price or condition or anything!!I started in the South Beach area because we had our meeting at 2 Black Duck Road. This lovely home is close to beach and at $2,350,000 was lovely but divided with stairs in middle of main floor not making that open floor concept. Not a lot of beach at black duck. Then 1936 South Beach Club Villa was nice and a penthouse unit, so to get up there takes Fort KNOX. Keypad to get in lobby, then extra code to ride elevator up to 5th floor penthouse. The hall area of the two penthouse units in this building was a bit messy with 'stuff' so did not make a great impression. The rooms are higher ceilings and at $1,699,000 a good alternative for a vacation getaway. A cute one bedroom Bluff Villa #1669 for $252,500 was 'ok' - now they call it 6 Braddock Bluff Drive so I have a hard time with what has been Bluff Villas for 50 years in my head. Then to 8 Gull Point Road, a fantastic view but old school home. Priced well at $839,000. THAT could be an option for favorite. Onward to 67 Baynard Cove Road, 413 Baynard Cove Club, 11 St. Andrews, 50 Heritage Road and 26 Heritage Road. I hate when houses over $1,500,000 disappoint. 26 Heritage was ok but a bit high. 24 Heritage Road is the best of the last 3. Anyway, Baynard Cove Club at $1,350,000 was beautiful - the marsh and deepwater view are a wow BUT for that money, I really don't want to climb upstairs to my Master Bedroom. All pretty but like everything else condo like as far as finishes. Ho hum for me. Maybe today I'm just being high maintenance, hahaha. So On to four Greenwood Forest listings, all within $455,000 to $595,000 in varied conditions and some without garages, so none of them appealed to me. 1 Magnolia Crescent was very reminiscent of earlier times on the island but the road noise bugged me. Besides, it needed a lot of work even at lot value $599,000 - then I'd rather do 8 Gull Point, a better view and address at $859,000, even if updating would have to wait. Then I got excited for 7 N. Calibogue Cay Road at under $3 million! Deepwater and Jane Mechling's old home. Nice redo but the kitchen is downstairs and somehow the place did not wow me, and with over 7000 ft2, who to keep that clean??!! So now we have 94 Lawton Road, the Hopper residence in times past with pretty lagoon view but asking $700,000 and 15 N. Sea Pines Drive (oh yes, 171 N. Sea Pines Drive was also choppy - interesting but on main road for $1,795,000). Then I was excited about Long Marsh Lane #7 because I love that street. Again, house disappointed at $1,949,000. Now we have a few left at Club Course and then its Forest Beach homes, a place to be in the middle of rentals. its almost as though many homes on tour today are more to see if they can get a price so high, then they will sell although they really don't want to. 17 Marshview at $599,000 was priced ok but no leisure trails way back there so not my choice to be on hilton head. 2 Wood Duck Court had great elevation and location and kitchens and baths were redone but eh eh eh. Maybe its me. I liked 8 Governors Road at $639,000 and this lovely elderly couple had same counters I had in my Red Maple Road home. They enclosed the porch to make a Carolina Room - lovely. Then there was 20 Spanish Moss at $640,000. Old school but light and bright and nice courtyard. No garage but great view, in the thick of Sea Pines, walk to Harbour Town and great street. Hmmmm, maybe i did find a favorite! I would say either 8 Governors, 2 Wood Duck Court or 20 Spanish Moss. Ok, i picked. Spanish Moss - great all on one floor with fantastic golf view on end of a street. Perfect for future grandkids! Wow, this one was tough. I sure do hope I can be of better help next time! Great homes but no clear winner.
