                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2010

                      About the owner: We are native to West Virginia and currently reside in Pittsburgh, PA, until we can retire to our Harbor Island home!

                      Why the Owner Chose Harbor Island:
                      My husband and I have enjoyed the Low Country around Beaufort, SC for many years. We find the whole area, dripping with Spanish moss and Southern charm, to be so romantic and enchanting, full of historic interest and unique Gullah culture. There is something here for everyone to enjoy: If you get bored with the natural beauty, unspoiled beaches, nature center, trails and lighthouse at Hunting Island, there is shopping, dining, carriage rides and playing at the waterfront park in downtown Beaufort; the Marine Corp Parris Island and Marine Corp Air Station and more. Nearby Savannah, GA and Charleston, SC offer great day day trips. In April 2010, we just could not pass up the opportunity to buy a two-year old home of our own at Harbor Island where we watch dolphins follow the shrimp boats and enjoy yet another private beach where we have watched egret nest eggs hatch, followed sea turtles and collected our share of horseshoe crab shells!

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Includes use of 2 unlimited car passes for nearby Hunting Island State Park (usually $5/per person/per day entry fee but you will get your whole carload in for free each day with our pass) Includes use of all the Harbor Island amenities: private beach, swimming pool (April 1-November 1) tennis, basketball, gym, crabbing/shrimping dock and more
