Private Homes house description

With the recent addition of a 40 foot heated pool / spa and new furniture, The Happy Heron is the perfect family vacation home. Additional remodels / updates this fall '10 include: (i) Remodeled / tiled bathroom and shower, (ii) updated kitchen, (iii) paint throughout, (iv) laminate hardwood in all bedrooms (v) installation of central dehumidifier. The Happy Heron is the 5th house from the ocean and the front yard connects to the bike path that covers the entire eastern portion of HHI. Just five blocks to Coligny Plaza (60+ shops/restaurants and grocery store), 220 steps to your own semi-private beach, or short walk or bike ride to miniature golf and waterpark, The Happy Heron is a destination, where you don't have to get back in your car once you've arrived.

This beach house comes furnished with TV's in each room, most every board and card game known to man (and child), an extensive movie collection and dedicated arts & crafts area for the kids. Two large separated living areas offer the perfect amount of peace and quiet for the adults and kids, and the single-story ranch floor plan avoids any cumbersome stairs. A combined kitchen and dining area offers the perfect place to hang out, and the kitchen table seats 10 comfortably. The house furnishings have been recently updated, with a 'Pottery Barn' look and feel throughout. This is the perfect home for two families or one family bringing along the Grandparents for a great Family Vacation. It would also be great for three couples. Great for family vacations and snowbirds as the kitchens are exceptionally stocked and furnished for large family/holiday meals and long term stays.

The large kitchen spills into the recently updated outside living area (1300 sq ft) which includes one of the largest pools & spas in NFB, an abundance of deck space and 6’ privacy fence. The street is lined with a canopy of oak trees, and the front of the house insulated by a city-zoned park, promoting one of the most peaceful sections of North Forest Beach.

Address: 12 Heron Street, HHI, SC 29928

              Hilton Head Island is the home of the nationally renowned Harbourtown Lighthouse and the best golf and tennis in the country. Located on North Forest Beach on Hilton Head Island, the home is in a very private residential area. Access to the beach is very limited so it is never crowded. A short walk takes you to shopping and many different restaurants. The island area has many golf courses, tennis, fitness centers, two outlet malls, four star restaurants, and many national retailers. Grocery shopping is very economical and there are many choices if you choose to cook in. A one hour drive takes you to beautiful Savannah or Beaufort, both historical cities with beautiful antebellum homes. Two hours takes you to Charleston.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About the owner: We've always loved the beach and have been 'beach people'. It probably dates back many years when my parents took our family to Litchfield (S. Myrtle) each summer, where we rented a house, and did everything beach... ride waves, build sand castles, steam crabs, and enjoy spending time with family. I met my wife on another beach, Manhattan Beach (Los Angeles) playing beach volleyball. When we moved back to the East Coast, we always knew we wanted a beach house, and Hilton Head, specifcally, North Forest Beach was a perfect fit.

              Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
              There's no better place than Hilton Head for a beach vacation or golf trip: -beautiful beaches -close to Atlanta -many, many golf courses -plenty of tennis courts -quiet and peaceful -super nice people -an established Island with plenty of shopping and fun things to do

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              We absolutely love our beach home (The Happy Heron), as it's conviently located on Heron Street. It's a single story (no stairs) with plenty of room for two families, and the two living rooms (dens) are set-up perfectly to give the kids and adults plenty of quiet time. We've put some serious focus into the backyard, and converted it into a private oasis... 1300 sq ft of deck, with a 40' pool (salt) and an 8 person hot tub. If you're looking for a quiet nights sleep, you're going to the right place, as the house is insulated with a town-zoned park (4.5 acres). Hilton Head is known for it's bike paths, and our front yard empties onto a path that will take you for miles, from Sea Pines to Port Royal. Finally, when you just don't want to cook, walk a short 5 blocks and you're in the downtown of Hilton Head, Coligny, and ready to enjoy 60+ shops and restaurants.
