There are a multitude of both single-family home and villa complexes available in a full gamut of prices and sizes. Some are more geared to private residences such as the Point Comfort area where 90 property owners enjoy a private pavilion, park, deep water access and beautiful sunset views of Calibogue Sound. Nearby, Ashton Cove is a private gated, single-family home community with beautiful views at affordable prices.
The south end Island location also includes popular villa complexes at Broad Creek and nearby Palmetto Bay Marina, which provides a mix of residential condominiums and townhomes, a full-service marina, eateries, shops and breathtaking views of Broad Creek.
Mid-Island features Yacht Cove, a newer mixed community of single family homes and villas.
The north end of the Island has a number of off-plantation homes and villas that are more ocean oriented, including the Bradley and Burkes Beach areas, which include the Islander’s Beach Club. The Beach City Road area also has multiple villas complexes offering breathtaking views.
The Singleton Beach area offers newly built oceanfront homes that provide beachfront living without the gated community prices.
Near the north side of the Cross Island Expressway, several distinct neighborhoods are located off Spanish Wells Road and Jonesville Road. Some of these neighborhoods front marsh and tidal creeks and enjoy solitude, away from popular tourist hotspots.
On the far north end, the oldest and most historically significant areas of the Island can be found. The Wild Horse Road – Gumtree Road – Squires Pope areas are home to some of the Island’s original dwellings, built long before the bridge. This area contains an eclectic mixture of newer and older homes and villas, with lovely scenery in a pristine setting. Many small developer communities have sprung up in this area, affording a property owner new construction at moderate prices, close to Hilton Head schools, as well as north end shopping and dining.
