Dear Friends, Clients and Fellow Associates~

Spanish Wells

  1. It has a great location!   Spanish Wells Plantation is located on the north end of Hilton Head Island, in the geograhic center.  It has easy access the Cross Island toll bridge. Spanish Wells Plantation is within three miles of the great  beach, gourmet supermarkets, an airport, a hospital, and plenty of shopping.
  2. It has great Waterfront!  Nestled on a peninsula between the Inter coastal and Broad Creek, Spanish Wells offers deep water access with private docks on both sides. 
  3. It has great architecture!  Spanish Wells Plantation homes include comfortable mid-sized homes to magnificent mansions with a variety of unique and wonderful styles.  The amenities these private homes offer are unbelievable.
  4. It has great golf!  Designed by George W. Cobb the 9-hole “Spanish Wells” golf course opened in 2005 and features 3,052 yards of golf from the longest tees for a par of 36.
  5. It has the great history!  Spanish Wells was named for the freshwater wells on the property that were frequented by the Spanish fleets in the 13th century when they were exploring the area.  The wells still exist today.
  6. It has a great club! The club includes golf, four Har-tru tennis couts, a clubhouse, a beach area and a recreational boat dock.  The deep water dock provides fishing and crabbing opportunities as well as dolphin watching.
  7. It has a great acreage!  Although Spanish Wells is one of the smaller communities, all lots exceed one acre.  There are over 200 homes spread across nearly 400 acres.
  8. It has a great blend of property.  Spanish Wells is a true community with all age groups and interest.  This is a very small and intimate neighborhood of only 200 homes and this is the catalyst that makes this a great neighborhood.  Adjacent to Spanish Wells is Wells East, a 24-home community, nestled along the first two holes on the Spanish Wells Golf Course. Property owners enjoy Spanish Wells’ amenities as well as their own pool, community well, and recreation field.
  9. It has great security.   Although no security gate—the crime rate in Spanish Wells is significantly lower than in other gated plantations with their roving patrol.  The first stop sign wasn’t even added until late fall of 2001.
  10. It has a unique real estate!  Brams Point Road offers a limited number of estates with deep water in the back of these homes and inter coastal beach at the front.  Brams Point Owners enjoy both sunrise and sunsets over the water from these unique locations.
