Golf: Specifically, it is on the border of the states of South Carolina and Georgia.
The two closest airports are Hilton Head (HHH, which is serviced by US Airways via Charlotte, North Carolina connections) and Savannah, Georgia (SAV, which is serviced by Delta, Continental and others via Atlanta and New York). Our house is 50 minutes from Savannah and 20 minutes from the Hilton Head airport.
Year Purchased: 1998
About the owner: We are Americans who have lived in London since 1999. Our Hilton Head house is our residence in the States that we rent out when we are not there and to maintain the property. Hilton Head is our favorite place in the world, but we do get out and about every once in awhile.
Hilton Head is in our blood. Ted's grandmother came from Bluffton before leaving in 1911 and the relatives owned places like Rose Hill, Victoria Bluff, and Kirk's Bluff (along the May River) back when land was cheap, cheap (1800s - 1960s)
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Oceanside: Our house has been in the Leavitt family since Ted's father bought the property from Charles Fraser on a hunting trip in the early 1960s. We bought the house in 1998 and then did a complete renovation in order to bring the house up to date. The old beach houses were very open (you had to go outside to the downstairs bedroom!) and we converted it to its present 5-bedroom, 5-bath format, while maintaining the character from the early days of Sea Pines.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Having come to Hilton Head since 1962, our house reflects the dichotomy of a modern version of an original Sea Pines beach cottage with the simplicity of beach life. We personally feel the privacy of our setting is a unique benefit, but each person will have their own viewpoint.
