              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2002

              About the owner: Gordon and Karen Barber live in Alpharetta, Georgia just outside Atlanta. They met at the University of Maryland where Karen was an undergraduate and Gordon after serving as a US Army officer was a graduate student. Gordon is a 1970 graduate of The Citadel and a retired AVP with AT&T with 41 years service. He is originally from Hendersonville, NC. Karen graduated from USC in Columbia in 1975 and is an author and a contributing editor for Guideposts Magazine. She grew up in Accokeek, Maryland. They have three sons, Jeff, Chris and John, daughter-in-law Leah, grandson Reed and granddaughter Kendall all of whom live in the Atlanta area except John who is in Augusta, Georgia. Jeff is a Duke under graduate and Duke MBA graduate, Chris USC in LA undergraduate and Emory MBA, John UGA and Leah Ga Tech.

              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
              Our family vacationed in Hilton Head and rented homes in Palmetto Dunes for about 6 years before we purchased 18 Mooring Buoy. We found the area to be an ideal vacation spot for families especially with children and/or grandchildren. This location is private yet within walking distance to world class golf course, world class tennis facility and much more.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The ocean, private pool and spa are magnets for all. We enjoy bike rides throughout Palmetto Dunes, boating on the lagoons, tennis, grilling outside and dining in our favorite restaurants.
