Hilton Head’s Beach Homes And Condos Are Worth A LookWritten by: Russ Fielden
Living and working within the area known as Hilton Head Island means we appreciate the privilege of a relaxed way of life. This kind of laid-back lifestyle is afforded by the position of Hilton Head along the glorious eastern coastal region of South Carolina, which we are fortunate to call home.
We understand the need for the island to support the congestion of more than 2 million visitors who flock to this exquisite coastal playground for their annual vacations. Managing this influx of people requires us to be especially respectful to the incredible array of precious wildlife including birds, turtles and other sea animals.
Locals have opted to invest in a beach renourishment program to ensure that the coastal waters and sandy beaches remain healthy for all those who use it – either for pleasure, for their livelihood or as their natural abode. Maintaining the wide shoreline of this second-largest barrier island on the East Coast ensures the natural environment for sea birds and sea turtles is protected and recreational activities continue unaffected - while at the same time acknowledging the huge investment home owners make when buying oceanfront homes and businesses.
This ongoing project has earned Hilton Head widespread acclaim for our positive proactive approach to environmental awareness. This oceanfront community is clearly committed to the natural heritage, ensuring return visitors year after year and high-end investment in gated and non-gated neighborhoods. Your choices are endless as a visitor – either to invest in timeshare villas or to purchase a second home as a permanent vacation getaway, with many folk opting for oceanfront real estate in this sought after part of South Carolina.
I know many folks who began their relationship to Hilton Head as visitors, and have become permanent residents, looking to a wider variety of real estate. For example, the first development of this area is Sea Pines, which began in the 1950’s. Sea Pines excellent oceanfront condos and homes that have been carefully developed is a good example of this area’s history of development based on sound environmental principles. This community kick started the accelerated growth that is Hilton Head: 12 miles of expansive beach brilliance offering exceptional quality in both architecture and investment that remains completely committed to ecological sustainability. You can be assured that the homes and villas for sale in Sea Pines were built to blend in with the natural environment.
It is common knowledge that we are voted 1 of the top 10 beach destinations in the country. However, it is fair to say that locals are keenly aware that Hilton Head Island is not only for the enjoyment of humans kayaking, jet skiing, boating, fishing and swimming – to name a few of the local pastimes. Both visitors and residents are privileged to see endangered loggerhead turtles nesting along the broad sandy beaches and beautiful bottle nose dolphins playing and feeding a little way from shore. Many folk visit and live in this area exactly for the environmental benefits – being able to bird watch from your front veranda or balcony, watching Egrets and Sandpipers in action reminds us of how special this coastal region is – not just nationally but globally, too.
If you’re thinking of spending time exploring the natural wonders of this island, and would like to take a drive to see what possible properties might be available, you are very welcome to call me. Perhaps you have environmental queries about certain developments or maybe you’re curious about all the different lifestyles on offer – from condos to villas, some oceanfront, and some waterfront, others beachfront. I am always on hand to answer questions and give advice, as there is no greater privilege for me than the pleasure of sharing our home region with you.
