Wake Up, Sleeping Beauty!

Sea Pines Homes for SaleHilton Head Island

     The Simple Beauty of  Hilton Head Island

Our last blog about the rising activity level of new home construction in Sea Pines elicited many responses from both owners (thinking of selling—but waiting for the “right time”) and prospective buyers (thinking of buying—but waiting for the “right time”).  Sounds like both parties could miss that boat! So, we will take up where we left off.  First of all, the “right time” is code for “when the money is right.”  Sellers want a profit and buyers want a bargain. That’s OK, buying real estate is a big deal whether it’s a first home or the fourth vacation home (or condo). 

There is no cookie-cutter valuation when it comes to Island properties—especially when it comes to properties in Sea Pines.  Brand new with cutting-edge good looks or tired and getting on up in age, most of the homes are custom-built, and lest it be forgotten, some of the older ones are sitting on prime lots.  Whether you are buying or selling, what your brother’s neighbor’s aunt’s house sold for six months ago (whether in Palmetto Dunes or Palm Beach) is not relevant. All markets are local, but this market is especially unique.  Great, beautiful white sand beaches, gentle waves and wide surfs, world-class golf and tennis, cool shops, friendly neighbors, great fishing, equestrian pursuits, leisure trails, a vibrant arts scene, and, oh, a year-round awesome climate.

Doing one’s homework and launching at just the right time has never counted for more.  While spreadsheets and comps have never been more valuable, so too is a heaping dose of old-fashioned horse sense.  Ergo, don’t discount the knowledge or the decades of invaluable experience in assisting buyers and sellers of Hilton Head real estate by the team of Realtors at Lancaster Real Estate Sales.  Contact us today to receive helpful and worthwhile guidance.  Be ready to act at the “right time” for Sleeping Beauty (the secluded teardown amongst the majestic live oaks and brambles that you passed by) is about to be awakened by the sweet hum of construction.





Sea Pines is more than a great place to live, work and play. More than a cliché of luxury living, it’s familiar, safe and friendly. It’s home to a fortunate few and a home-away-from-home for many others. The first memories go way back, but not so far back that you cannot recall the first glimpse, the first breath of clean, salt air, the first vision of what natural beauty really is. Take a good, long look around you—you will love what you see. Let’s start on the outside and make our way in, shall we?

If we set our gaze on the blue boundary that separates the island from the mainland, Calibogue Sound, at nearly 70 feet deep, is Hilton Head’s most ancient natural wonder.  The cool waters and rushing currents of this 13-mile channel wind and curve around the tip of the Island as it connects with the Atlantic Ocean.  Homes in Sea Pines along beautiful Calibogue Cay Road as it forks North and South enjoy deep water docks in their back yards, exquisite water vistas, spectacular marsh views and the calm of the tidal creek as it rises and falls with an 8’ tide.  Private and secluded, and just a short walk from Harbour Town, the unique architectural design of the homes on the Cay are made up primarily of full-time residents, making it one of the most sought-after (and notable) neighborhoods on the entire island. Exactly.

Turn around again and you will see an expanse of ocean like you have never seen before.  It is here that the gentle waves roll into the white sands and wide shoreline—5 miles of pristine beach.  The homes that dot this shore are magnificent structures, each with its own story and individual history.  From one-story bungalows built in the 1960s as weekend getaways for a drive-time crowd and passed down to their children and grandchildren as legacy homes to newly built, expansive designs boasting tomorrow’s tropical treats and architectural flairs with floor to ceiling windows and banks of French doors that swing open early in the morning only to close as the sun sets over the water and the nighttime sky avails itself. Exactly.

Move farther inland within the resort and you will gaze down oak-shaded streets dotted with family homes of all sizes and designs, full of life and vigor.  Homes in pristine condition on prime lots—for sale and ready for move-in.  Exactly.
