The Story Behind 345 S. Greenwood Drive in Sea Pines

The Story Behind the Home

"My wife and I share a love of coastal living.  She is a rare native of “old” Naples, Florida, having grown up literally across the street from the Gulf of Mexico.  Born in South Carolina, I have always loved the lowcountry’s natural beauty.  We began vacationing in Hilton Head when we had our first child and soon began exploring the idea of purchasing a home that we could furnish and enjoy as a true second home.  We looked originally at beach-side properties, but the moment we saw the midcentury architecture of 345 S. Greenwood Drive we knew we’d found the place.  The open floor plan, privacy of the original full-sized pool, and easy access to the pleasures of the Sea Pines bike trail make a perfect home base for enjoying all of the island’s pleasures.

A contractor once told us that the only way we wouldn’t lose our minds as rental property owners was to think of the place as a business.  We reject that notion.  We really do think of this spot on this perfect island as our second home, a place we share with our children and our friends and those who visit via Destination Vacation.  We truly love it, and we welcome you."
