Located on a high peninsula pointing south and splitting the Broad Creek and Intercoastal Waterway, sits Spanish Wells Plantation – one of the most beautiful and exclusive communities found in Hilton Head Island.
It was here that Spanish explorers – where it gets its name from – would stop to refill their water supplies form the artesian wells found in the area before continuing their journey.
The Spanish Wells Plantation still has an expansive area of live oak trees and Spanish Moss vegetation from way back. Originally known as the McIntosh Plantation, the property stayed barely untouched until the birth of the Spanish Wells community.
It is listed among the unique populace found on Hilton Head Island. The Spanish Wells Plantation sits 200 homesites on 400 acres of land with a majority of homes built on lots that are on a full acre. Property views on this plantation include Broad Creek, Golf Courses and Calibogue Sound with homes in this area being in a million dollars plus price bracket.
Social amenities within the plantation include a pool, clubhouse, Deepwater dock, 9-hole golf course and tennis court. While these amenities might not compare to some found in other plantations in Hilton Head Island, still, Spanish Wells Plantation remains a highly prime real estate location.
While the community at Spanish Wells is private and elite with custodian gate posts found at the entrance, there is no security team that’s on guard.
