Jonesville Road Communities
- It has great water access. Jonesville Road has two partial deep-watercreeks running down each side. On the right is Jarvis Creek with its view of Calibogue Sound and unspoiled Shoreline. On the other side is Old House Creek which is a tidal creek that offers access to the inter-coastal waterways. Both creeks offer boating, crabbing, fishing and exploring. Homeowners along the creek put in docks and boat lifts to enjoy these waters.
- It has a great new communities. The new developments include The Paddocks, Shearwater, Graham Lane The Barn, Wayward Cove and Jonesville. This was the last area to get water on sewer on Hilton Head and it is a place time forgot. It offers a relaxed feeling with architecture that is Southern Vernacular at its best, blurring the lines between indoors and out. Jonesville offers a sanctuary on the Island for a vanishing way of life.
- It has a great location. Convenient to both the South End and the North End of Hilton head Island Jonesville is located off Spanish Wells Road home-sites. Follow Spanish Wells Road to Jonesville Rd. Turn onto Jonesville Rd – The Paddocks is .7 mile on right. Although it’s a secluded refuge, it’s just one minute from the Cross Island Parkway, which puts you close to dining, shopping, schools and beaches.
- It has great fishing and crabbing. The docks for The Barn or the town crabbing dock on Jonesville are a great place to take the kids(grand-kids?) or a special friend to spend an afternoon an hour before or after high tide which is called “slack tide”. All you really need is a chicken neck a string and a net. Get ready to belly laugh when you finally try to get them in the cooler. Oh be sure to bring tongs as you do not want to get pinched! It is easier to let them go!
- It has great stables. The stables of Sandy Creek will take you back in time. It is 8 acres with 32 stalls, tack room, feed room, wash rack, and rest rooms. Residents and guests are greeted by these gentle giants as they spend time in there paddocks. They offer up to one hour trails that loop back through the low country.
- It has great neighbors. The neighbors have either lived here all their life or built a new home and moved here. You will find that these neighbors share their love for the outdoors here. You will see them boating, walking, jumping off a dock, kayaking and biking. Many have moved from the larger communities to discover an intimate lifestyle.
- It has a sunny dirt road. Although Miller Road is the dirt road that connects Spanish Wells and Jonesville, this road is symbolic for the life-style you will find down these roads. It represents a trip through time where neighborhoods flow together like the tides and where nothing is a hurry.
- It has a Hilton Head zipcode. Although this community has a “Bluffton Feel” this community is located on the Island and offers convenience to everything on Hilton Head Island including the beach, shopping and dining.
- It has great natural beauty. The marshes come to life with tree swallows, rails, hawks, crickets and crabs making marsh music throughout the 4 seasons. The sunsets over Jarvis Creek is a long smooth drink of calm and is to be enjoyed on the crabbing dock off Spanish Wells. The homes, communities and natural beauty are to be enjoyed by all.
