Coastal South Carolina Waterfront Neighborhoods

Real Estate Scorecard's Big Debate Series

Bluffton, South Carolina (PRWEB) September 24, 2013

Coastal South Carolina’s fastest growing area is still timeless. Neighborhoods like Palmetto Bluff and Spring Island exude Lowcountry splendor and privacy. Oldfield Club's American Farmhouse architecture compliments its sunny, open air plantation with homes bordering the rivers and marsh. Here's what's new at three of the finest coastal South Carolina neighborhoods along with an amenity and rate structure comparison:

PALMETTO BLUFF

What's new? 70 homes under construction making Palmetto Bluff the fastest growing neighborhood in 2013.

24 Hour Manned Gated Entrance
18 Hole Championship Golf Course designed by Jack Nicklaus
5,000 Square Foot May River Golf Clubhouse with dining
The Inn & Spa at Palmetto Bluff with heated Swimming Pool
River House Fitness Center and Heated Lap Pool at the Spa
River House Restaurant
Longfield Stables - Full Service Equestrian Center, 24 Stall Barn, Covered Arena, Practice Course
Wilson Landing - 80 Dry Storage Boat Slips, Boat Rentals and Outfitters Center
Wilson Lawn & Racquet Club with 8 Har-Tru Tennis Courts & Two Bocce Ball Courts
Wilson Village - RT’s Market, Chapel, Shops and Restaurants

15 Miles of Riding and Walking Trails
6,000 Acre Nature Preserve
370 homes have been built to date
Cottage homes begin in the $400K’s
Homes on the water can easily exceed $3 million
Homesites begin in the low $100K’s
HOA and social club fees $554 per month

Things that make Palmetto Bluff unique:

Amenities are scalable which means property owners only pay for items which interest them. All property owners become social club members from day one and the social club dues are included in the HOA fees. Full golf, boating and equestrian privileges are optional upgraded memberships.

In Real Estate Scorecard's opinion, The Palmetto Bluff Inn is the secret ingredient to this community’s early success. Winner of more than 40 travel and amenity awards, its upscale resort attracts enough visitors to support the community’s amenities. But unlike most busy vacation resorts, Palmetto Bluff is spread across 20,000 acres preserving its quiet and lush atmosphere.

This equates to 5 acres of paradise per property owner. Some interior neighborhoods are gated providing the deeper sense of privacy.

Wilson Village adjacent to the inn overlooks the May River is the community’s traditional town square with dining options, specialty shopping and a charming seaside chapel.

Palmetto Bluff offers a big bang for the buck.

Things that make Spring Island unique:

Spring Island is the most unspoiled neighborhood Real Estate Scorecard has seen in the Low country and if someone doesn't belong on the island, they're not getting in. Spread across 3,000 acres, property owners average out at 7.5 acres of living space. This historic plantation has beautifully maintained dirt roads weaving through the island connecting to private driveways leading to luxury waterfront, golf or nature preserve homes.

Designed with sportsmen in mind, Spring Island has an amenity most neighborhoods don’t, a true sporting clay range. Its comprehensive nature center offers extensive educational programs its residents cherish. The $125K initiation fee and $1,500 in monthly fees tends to attract more affluent families seeking a genuine private community in exchange. Only 30 minutes south of America’s Happiest Seaside Town and 20 minutes from America’s best beaches on Hilton Head Island, Spring Island's location is special.

OLDFIELD CLUB

What's new? 21 homes under construction with 20 pre-designed new home packages to choose from.

Things that make Oldfield Club unique:

After visitors pass through the gated entrance, they’ll sense the spaciousness and traditional neighborhood feel. Manicured lawns with white picket fences are common sights. Amenities such as the Outfitters Center and River Club on the Okatie River are canopied by age old oak trees. Oldfield Club’s Outfitter Center is ranked as one of the best private outfitter programs in the southeast.

The Oldfield Club golf course designed by Greg Norman weaves through broad savannahs and soaring pines up to the banks of the Okatie River. American Farmhouse architecture and Low country-style elegance are staples of the neighborhood. Its location is special too, located half way between Beaufort and Hilton Head Island.
