Hilton Head Island, South Carolina

Yesterday's Realtor Tour for the South end of Hilton Head showcased 30 homes and villas. Six were in Forest Beach, two in Broad Creek Landing and the rest in Sea Pines. Five of the Sea Pines properties were villas in Greenwood Gardens, Harborwood, Twin Oaks and Sound Villas.

We noted a higher than average number of OCEANFRONT listings this tour. Seventeen homes on tour within Sea Pines yesterday and EIGHT of them were oceanfront! Pretty amazing. There were also two oceanside homes on the tour, both which have been on the market for quite some time but are now priced quite well. There was a brand new oceanfront that is on 15 Grey Widgeon that was architecturally quite a masterpiece with dramatic entry with stacked floors towards the beach. If you are ready to spend $7,8 million dollars, I have the perfect home for you. ;-) 

So now to my favorite Tour property. I sadly did not have time to see the two broad creek landing villas but this BLOG is limited to favorite home not condo, unless its just a home run type of home.

For someone looking for a killer marsh view, 59 Oyster Landing Lane was amazing! The floor plan is a bit different and the 3 story home is better geared for either a huge family or parents living with you at home. The view kept getting better each floor you went up, it had an elevator AND a two car garage! It needed a lot of changes. I spoke to the owner who told me they once had a party with 220 people IN the house. Thank goodness they had large balconies.

9 Wood Duck Road is a perfect home for someone that wants elegant, one floor living and large rooms. Its a beautiful home, convenient to main gate and shopping, in a residential area and gorgeous curb appeal. 

79 Plantation Drive is a friend's house that has a spectacular view of Harbor Town's beautiful greens. Its a big house and great for parties. There was also one on 4 Red Maple with four bedrooms. Pretty setting but needs updating. 

I think I have to go with one of the oceanfront ones because we had so many of them. 26 Duck Hawk has a nice view for a paddle lot. Loni can help you with that one. Another friend has 15 Marsh Wren on the market. its an amazing updated contemporary oceanfront home. 

Despite all of the above, I would have to choose 15 Grey Widgeon. It was absolutely perfect in every way. $7,795,000 for a 6 bedroom, 7 and a half bath masterpiece.
