Today we have the Central Tour for Hilton Head Island. There’s LOTS on the tour today with 53 properties total, 25 of which are homes and 28 are villas. So, you know the drill. I will not be going into the villas.
38 Bradley Beach Road has four bedrooms and three and a half baths and is listed for $579,000. The Bradley Beach area was a Native Islander area and so, I always think of that but now you have houses which are all three stories with garages on the bottom. This one is priced well but needs work due to its condition. You’re right near the community park and beach area. So, I think it could be a very good rental. It needs a little TLC, but at this price, if someone really wants beach-oriented, this is one to absolutely consider.
22 Bradley Circle is a ten bedroom ten and a half bath priced at $3,995,000. It’s for a unique buyer and totally okay.
10 Catboat is a seven bedroom six and a half bath listed at $4,595,000. This home has been on the market before. It’s a retread. They did put new furnishings in it, and it has a more coastal feel. It used to have dark furnishings. It shows a lot better. It’s a large home with seven bedrooms and it is on the ocean. So, I certainly think it will show better than it has in the past.
2 Eastwind is a four-bedroom four bath priced at $1,195,000. It has been on the rental market. As you approach the deck, it really takes away from the curb appeal and makes you doubt everything. It’s nice inside and has new decking in the back with a pool area. It seems a little pricey to be on the main road and, again, with the entryway the way that it is.
176 Mooring Buoy has four bedrooms and six baths and is listed for $1,675,000. It’s a little on the pricey side, however, it is on the cul-de-sac. You can also walk to the beach from it. It has a killer lagoon and golf view. So, you kind of have a trifecta of a lot of great things there and it’s in a very quiet part of Palmetto Dunes. It could be an interesting rental. It is an old school home. It seems a bit pricey, but again, it has great potential.
66 Full Sweep is a three-bedroom two bath listed at $499,000. It has a separate garage. It is an old school home. It’s got Mexican tile and original windows. The flooring and the paint are kind of new, but again, at $499,000 it’s got tremendous potential for a handyman.
3 Yard Arm has five bedrooms and four and a half baths for $850,000. It’s across from the lagoon and you can hear 278. It needs a lot of love. It was not my favorite. I was in and out of that one pretty quickly.
35 Mooring Buoy has seven bedrooms and seven baths and is priced at $2,195,000. It’s a newer build, but it’s on the main street. I can’t imagine doing anything but using it as a rental. It’s very choppy. There is not heart or love in it at all. So, other than using it for a rental machine, I can’t imagine that one.
I’ll come back to the villas after all the homes on tour. Just scroll down to bottom.
4 Barnacle Road is as three bedroom two and a half bath listed for $549,000. It has been on the market before and this time it’s empty. So, it certainly shows a lot better than last time it was on the tour which was six months to a year ago. The biggest drawback I find to this is that you’re close to the Westin and the time shares, which is what the house sort of faces. And then, in the little breakfast nook area where you have a nice light, bright area, when number six gets built on, you’ll be staring at a big monster house. It does have a two-car garage. So, again, you are beach-oriented at a decent price. You just have to keep in mind what can happen in the future.
5 Craven Place has three bedrooms and two baths and is priced at $527,000. This one smelled like grandma. Sorry grandma. It is a great lot. It has carpet and it’s very old school but it has great bones with a one-car garage. It has some proximity to the beach and it’s very private. So, you know, I think long-term this one has better potential than 4 Barnacle simply because of what can happen around 6 Barnacle.
36 Scarborough Head Road is a four-bedroom three and a half bath listed for $650,000. This one has also been on the market before and was not my cup of tea back then because you drive right into it. It’s under contract, so I didn’t go in it this time, but it was not one of my favorites last time it was on tour.
42 Fairway Winds Place has four bedrooms and three and a half baths and is priced at $839,900. It’s beautifully appointed. The pavers and the curb appeal are really good. They’ve got some really nice colors. The trim work is kind of basic, but it does have a really nice golf view and don’t forget that it’s really close to the new beach club. So, if someone doesn’t want a lot of yard maintenance and is beach-oriented, this one might be good. The price just seems high because Fairway Winds is usually in the sixes and the upgrades haven’t been enough to merit an eight in front of it. That’s just my personal opinion.
3 Everglade Place has five bedrooms and four and a half baths and is listed for $1,195,000. Everglade place on the other side has killer marsh views. This one does not. It has a sort of lagoon wooded view. It does have a sunken in living room. It’s nicely updated. It’s a great family house. The pool area has a little mother-in-law suite with one or two bedrooms over there. If you’ve got a small family or a single mom or single parent, I could see the in-laws or the nanny living in that other pool area. That makes it unique. $1,195,000 is a little on the high side and this one has been on the market before also.
There are six homes in Wexford, and we’ll start with 3 Castlebridge Court. It has six bedrooms and six and a half baths. It’s priced at $3,200,000. I love that it has two stairwells going up and lots of different levels. It is on the water and has a pretty view and nicely updated. The movie theater room has these cheesy leather blue seats that just did not cut it for me at that kind of price, but I said that to the listing agent.
22 Castlebridge Court has four bedrooms and four and a half baths and is priced at $1,845,000. It is a nice family home. I really don’t have a lot to say about it but it’s okay. None of these really spoke to me.
3 Wexford on the Green is a four-bedroom four and a half bath listed for $550,000. This one is behind number one WOTG and doesn’t face the street. It is very choppy, but it does have an elevator. Faces the club and it does need some updating, and could be really cool if you don’t mind having a lot of split levels. Priced well despite work needed.
9 Wexford on the Green has four bedrooms and three and a half baths for $979,000. This one had a smell and it has the black and white tile. It has also been on the market before, I think it was last year. Looking at $979,000 and then, you’ve got one for $550,000 I’d be more inclined to do the $550,000 home that overlooks the croquet area and the yacht area and so on.
This was one of my favorites and it may be an overall favorite for the tour: 25 Oxford Drive is a four-bedroom five and a half bath listed at $1,895,000. A brand-new house and built in 2017. It has beautiful curb appeal and a beautiful driveway. It has green space to the front of it and an all new infinity pool. The only thing I didn’t like is that you can see the house in the back on the other side. It’s a white house that I personally would put up some plantings to make it a little more private. I’m not sure that you can build to the other side of it, but if somebody wants a brand-new house, the building process takes so long right now that this would be an excellent way to have a new home. It’s definitely one to keep in mind.
11 Bridgetown Road is on the other side of the entryway to Wexford. It’s a three bedroom three and a half bath home priced at $1,790,000. It needs some updating. It just needs some updating. There’s not much to say about that one either.
It’s hard to go from Wexford to Shipyard because Wexford is such a high-end community with very elaborate homes and Shipyard is kind of low-key with sort of old school cottages. We have two homes in Shipyard.
The first is 3 Port au Prince Road which is a five-bedroom three and a half bath home priced at $684,900. This one has been on the market before and I saw it then. It has a pool in the back and is very choppy and dated. If you’re going to get a five-bedroom house, you might as well buy my 43 Forrest Drive in Greenwood and I don’t like to make plugs for my listings but $684,900 in the middle of nowhere in Shipyard seems very pricey.
66 Kingston Dunes Road has four bedrooms and three baths and is listed for $539,500. This is a cuter little home and is much closer to the beach. When you walk to the back of it, then you’re at beach walk and you’re right by the path that takes you to the Sonesta, or the private beach access for Shipyard which is a very narrow part. So, it could be interesting. I think if you put new furniture in it to make it a little 'beachier', the rental numbers could be compelling in this low fives high fours price range.
There are three homes in Long Cove. The first is 5 Rosebank Lane with four bedrooms and four and a half baths priced at $850,000. There is nothing that I really loved about this house. It’s kind of tucked away with a very tight driveway, has these rounded, extremely dated front walls that you can’t fix and inside you also need a lot of work. It has the dining room in the middle of main space. This one has been on the market before. It’s a tough one.
30 Long Brow Road has four bedrooms and four and a half baths and is listed for $799,000. This one has good bones but it’s dated. Has some of those half moon windows that I don’t really care for, but it sits on a great lot. At nearly $800,000 it needs a lot of work. The kitchen cabinets are really old school. So, it’s priced a little high considering that you don’t just have cosmetic, but you need to change cabinetry out. It didn’t make my short list.
Lastly for Long Cove we have 15 McKays Point Road, a three bedroom three and a half bath priced at $539,000. It is kind of a cool house although it too has been on the market recently. It has been updated and most living space is upstairs. Its a great entry level price for Long Cove on a preferred street.
Villas on Central Tour:
3L Fiddler’s Cove Villa has two bedrooms and two baths and is priced at $159,000. It’s priced well. It needs some updating.
107 Island Club Villa has two bedrooms and two and a half baths and is priced at $315,000.
In Palmetto Dunes we have 3 Abbington Villas on tour today: 104 Abbington is listed at $699,000. 108 Abbington is listed at $775,000 and 107 Abbington is priced at $715,000. All of them are three-bedroom three bath villas. So, take your pick. These are across the street from oceanfront high-rises.
7473 Anchorage Villa is a two-bedroom two bath priced at $269,000. These are well-liked and good entry-level villas in the Shelter Cove area.
Next is 225 Captain’s Quarters Villa, a two-bedroom two bath for $512,000. You have a nice view of the harbor from it.
7810 Center Court Villa is a two-bedroom two bath priced at $369,000.
We have two Fazio villas this time. Number 14 Fazio is $479,000 and #48 Fazio is $429,000. There’s a $50,000 difference. Both are three bedroom three baths. Number 14 is closer to the beach. Again, you will need some updating.
5201 Hampton Place Villa is a one bedroom one and a half bath for $459,000.
303 Main Sail Villa is a two-bedroom two and a half bath priced at $699,900. Wow, these have gotten very expensive. I haven’t seen one of those on the market for a while. It seems kind of pricey.
806 Ocean Cove Villa has three bedrooms and three baths and is listed for $579,999. Again, it’s very close to the beach in Palmetto Dunes.
Newport Villa, those seem to be nice and quiet with Shelter Cove community center being there and the mall. 3103 Peninsula at Newport is a three-bedroom three bath priced at $599,000. I think it has been on the market. These do have garages and are great for professionals and are well liked by professionals moving to Hilton Head.
12 Tradewinds is a three bedroom three and a half bath for $474,900.
2515 Villamare is a two-bedroom two bath priced at $499,000 and 3230 Villamare is also a two-bedroom two bath for $525,000. It’s on the second floor and the first one at $499,000 is on the fifth floor. So, I would rather go for the cheaper one if I had a buyer looking for something in Villamare.
274 Evian Villa is a three bedroom three and a half bath for $469,000.
Golfmaster #206 is a three bedroom three and a half bath for $299,900. These are about as far from the beach as you can get but they are extremely large. That was the first rental I had after college. I lived in Golfmaster. So, I do have an emotional attachment to these.
403 Harbor Master Villa is a three bedroom two and a half bath for $290,000. Be careful with these.
4E Sailmaster is a three-bedroom three bath for $395,000.
Shipmaster has a lot of full time folks that live in them, and that makes them very attractive to me. You have a little extra bonus room. #902 Shipmaster is a two bedroom two and a half bath and is for sale at $329,900. #1504 Shipmaster is a two-bedroom two and a half bath for $309,900.
The Greens Villa #188 is a two bedroom two and a half bath for $319,000. There is no pool in this community. So, keep that in mind.
Townhouse Tennis Club Villa #105 is a three-bedroom three bath for $415,000.
So, that covers it. It’s a big open house for realtors in Hilton Head today with 53 properties. I would have to say that the one that stands out for me after seeing one for $3.2 million is in Wexford is #25 Oxford Drive. It’s a shame that it is only a four bedroom instead of five, but I like that one. Then, if you have someone that wants something rental-wise, I would say 66 Kingston Dunes Road at $539,500.
So, there are a lot of great things out on the market. Don’t forget that Long Cove and Wexford do have initiation fees of $20,000 and, of course, their POAs automatically make you a member of the golf club. So, you’re going to pay $15,000 to $20,000 annually to live in there, but the prices are also comparable. Shipyard has two gates and Port Royal is a private gated community with no short-term rentals.
So, it’s very attractive as a second home or primary residence. There are lots of great options out there. Please call me if you want to come explore and consider Hilton Head as your new home away from home, investment property, or new home to move into and live primarily. We’d love to help you. So, please feel free to call or text me or email me at (843) 816-6388. Have a great day and look out, February is right around the corner.
