The front of the home looks out to a beautifully landscaped front yard with a perfect, stately live oak surrounded by graceful azaleas. Additionally, across the street is a small undeveloped area providing more tranquil views of this peaceful setting. Functionally, a circular driveway serving a two car garage provides ample parking. The back area of the home is south facing and open providing tons of sun, (a rarity in Hilton Head), It also features perfect open views of the new pool, professional landscaping, and a 15-acre spring fed lake that provides fishing and abundant wildlife watching, especially all the incredible birds! The back yard setting alone will make you want to come back!
