Today is the last day of July 2019 and we have the Central Tour of Hilton Head Homes. The Realtor Tour of Homes has a very small list today. 

There are two condos in Folly Field. Seems to me that condos that were under $100K right after the recession have almost doubled in price. It’s incredible. The lower-end stuff really seems to have gone through the roof. 

17G Fiddlers Cove Villa is a two-bedroom two bath listed at $174,900. 

C339 Hilton Head Beach and Tennis Ocean Villas is a one-bedroom one bath for $189,900.

Off Plantation

Off Plantation we have one house in SingletonBeach. 26 Corrine Lane is a five-bedroom five bath home listed for $719,900. The house has a nice curb appeal. It’s a townhouse. I knew that there were stucco issues with these houses but apparently this one was all done in 2018. It’s probably a great rental machine and it’s priced well. It has 2,400 square feet. There is a $1,600 POA but there are no other fees involved and no transfer fees. 

Just so we can get the other central condo, there is one in the Yacht Cove subdivision. We have condo 12 Brittany Place. It has three bedrooms and two baths and is listed at $269,000. 

Port Royal

In Port Royal we have 12 Scarborough Head Road. It’s a three-bedroom four bath priced at $695,000. It’s an older-school home but looks like it has been updated in a few places. It needs some cosmetic stuff. I don’t like that the floors and the rooms off the side seem to step down when you come through the entryway. I wasn’t that excited about it. The roof looks like it’s in decent condition and it has nice curb appeal. It also has a nice pool and is on the golf course. 

3 Hartford Place is a three-bedroom four bath listed at $750,000 price. The deck needs some work on this one, but it has a gorgeous marsh view. You know how I feel about that. It has tray ceilings that are all smooth. The home has sort of a contemporary look. It’s on a huge lot with grass and enough room to add a pool. The only thing I didn’t like was that the back deck area had a lot of wood rot. This just looks like the type of house that was never really cared for. It is a crying shame because the house is elevated, and it has a spectacular view. It’s got good curb appeal. I don’t know what the story is with the house because it has so much going for it that it’s really a shame, but if some builder/buyer isn’t scared of it, it’s an absolutely gorgeous lot with great potential. It’s worth looking at but again, the back deck and the siding on the back are a concern. 

Wexford Plantation

In the Wexford Plantation we have 60 Bridgetown Road. It’s a four-bedroom, four bath, and two half bath priced at $1,761,5000. That's a really odd number. I happen to know the Seller for years and he is a commercial developer and commercial realtor here on the island. It is gorgeous. It’s just beautifully built. He built this back in the day when you had the pick of the litter of lots. It is sort of the last lot as you turn into a little cul-de-sac with views of the 18th, another hole and marsh. You are close to the Golf Club without being in that whole area. What a beautiful setting. Nice curb appeal but it has very dark furniture. You almost need to get the window treatments and the furnishings out of there to see it but it’s a very high-quality built house. 

8 Wexford Club Drive is a three-bedroom, three bath, two half bath listed at $995,000. It is also well built. Obviously, it’s not as well-built as the previous one. It’s very close to the gate. It’s a little dated but it has nice certernian floors. If you are looking at the pictures, the steps go up into the master. So, you don’t even have the master on the main level. That’s the part that gets to me. Yet, you have to go down those steps to go to use the laundry room. I’m a very practical person. I think it was built in 2000. It’s richly appointed. You can tell that 20 years ago this was the cat’s meow. It is on the harbor and has room for a boat. It’s priced pretty aggressively I believe. 

Palmetto Dunes

45 Sea Lane is a four-bedroom four and a half bath priced at $1,675,000. It is a beautiful richly appointed house. You can tell that it’s somebody’s main home. It’s close to the beach. Not much else to say for this home. 

The next three homes are located in the Leamington neighborhood which is a private area within the Palmetto Dunes development. It is gated and has its own light and in and out of William Hilton Parkway or 278 as we call it. 

2 Interlochen Drive is a six-bedroom four and a half bath listed at $899,000. It has a small kitchen and is a little on the choppy side. I like that it is right near the gate. It’s a little old-school and a little dark has just as tiny kitchen but for somebody that needs a lot of rooms, this one could be a cool semi-beach house. 

8 Merion Court is a four-bedroom three bath priced at $829,000. I looked at the pictures for this home before because I had a client asking about it. It looks better in the pictures than it is. It does have a new metal roof. I like the turnaround driveway with oyster shells. It’s really nicely decorated but it has tile floors and is a basic build. It just seems a little high. It should have a seven in front of it possibly, but it is aggressively priced, and it is tough to get into Leamington these days. 

2 Leamington Place is a four-bedroom three and a half bath for $1,249,000. This home has a newer kitchen. The cabinets weren’t done but they did put new handles and countertops on it. The saving grace for this one is A) that you are still in Leamington and B) that it really has a nice lagoon view. So, you can take your kayaks and go back and forth. It is nicely appointed with high ceilings. I guess the market in Leamington has really just gone off the roof. I like this one. I really do. It’s a good all-around house.

29 South Shore Court is a six-bedroom five and a half bath listed for $1,445,000. This one sits on the corner lot of a cul-de-sac. I think it was added on for the garage and bonus room. I love the curb appeal coming up with the brick pavers. When I got in the house, I was extremely disappointed. They are using the dining room sort of as a sitting area and then, you look straight ahead, and you see the pool but to the left you stare straight into the master bedroom. So, you’re going to have to keep your door shut. I don’t know how many people like to be able to look straight into their master from the entryway. That was the only negative but also that the dining area sitting room and living space seemed dark. I love the infinity pool and once I made the right and got into the living space area where the family congregated, I saw the very cool bar and open kitchen with a family area. You can see out to the infinity pool and gardens. It is really nice. Then, you can go down the long hallway and there is a great mother-in-law suite/sixth bedroom. Upstairs there are four bedrooms. So, for a large family it’s priced well. It sure is a lot of bedrooms though.

Let me close off with the condos in Palmetto Dunes

296 Turnberry Village Villa is a two-bedroom two bath priced at $450,000. 

3229 Villamare Villa is a two-bedroom two bath listed at $469,900. 

Then, in the Shelter Cove area we have 7475 Anchorage Villa which is a two-bedroom two bath listed for $319,000. I think I sold it one year.

Lastly, we have 7121 Harbourside One Villas. It has one bedroom, one bath, and one half bath and is priced at $277,000.

It’s a tough call but I would say that of all my houses, if I had a builder, I would say 3 Hartford Place in Port Royal. If you got that somewhere in the sixes, you could really make something nice of it, but you just don’t know what is behind it. Again, if someone isn’t scared, I think it’s a very good one. 

If somebody wants something over the top, 60 Bridgetown Road certainly fits the bill to a lot of things that are out there. The décor is just a little on the dark side. 

So, those would be my favorites. 

That wraps up the very short Summer Central Tour. We will see you in August. Don’t forget that we have a lot of information on our site. We also have wonderful agents available to help and answer all your questions and point you in the right direction. We are not here to sell. We are here to represent you and we hope that you will consider us for your future purchases on Hilton Head Island.

Thanks so much and have a great day! Bye Bye July!
