Lowcountry Lifestyle

It's all about the lifestyle.......

There is more to choosing a home when you move to the Hilton Head area, you also choose a lifestyle.  There are 24 gated communities in Hilton Head Island and Bluffton, and many more traditional neighborhoods, like Old Town Bluffton, Folly Field, or North Forest Beach.   Gated communities, more affectionately know as "plantations", boast various features and benefits from beach access, country clubs, boating and marinas, bike paths, as well as special interest clubs, socials, and events.  A REALTOR can help you find the right neighborhood for you.
