Coming Soon: 55 or Better Community on Hilton Head Island

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, over 32 million Baby Boomers are currently over 50. In the coming years, an additional 45 million are expected to enter their active 50 years and based on a National Association of Realtors' study, "nearly half would consider living in an age-restricted community."

In the coming months, the new community of Abbey Glen at Spanish Wells will break ground on Hilton Head Island-s first-ever "55 or Better" community. Southern Lifestyle Group Realty and Epcon Communities, Inc. are developing the property. They successfully created the popular Abbey Glen located in Bluffton.

"We have had buyers fall in love with Abbey Glen, but they just didn't want to leave the Island," says David Brown, president of Southern Lifestyle Group and Abbey Glen.

The way of life at Abbey Glen is easy to fall in love with. Built for homeowners who are interested in "worry-free" living, the development is literally "lock-and-leave." As a managed community, homeowners pay a monthly fee, which includes insurance on the home, landscaping, and yard maintenance. "The only thing a buyer needs to insure is the contents of their home," says David.

That same unique lifestyle is now available in one of America's most select locations. Abbey Glen at Spanish Wells looks over the marsh of Calibogue Sound on Hilton Head Island. This exclusive, gated community will have just 40 homes. Southern Lifestyle Group Realty and Epcon Communities, Inc. has been consistently recognized for exceptional homebuilding with high-end trim packages, energy-efficient appliances, upgraded cabinetry, countertops and more.

Though Abbey Glen at Spanish Wells will offer the same way of life as its predecessor in Beaufort, home designs on Hilton Head Island will be distinctive to the locale. Homes located within this high-end community will consist of 34 Epcon-designed European courtyard-style homes and 6 two-story carriage homes.

"The courtyard homes are designed to offer wide open living space," adds David. Each home is more than 2000 square feet. The living room, kitchen and master bedroom all overlook the courtyard, which measures a comfortable 250 square feet.

The carriage homes will include the master suite, kitchen, living room and guest bedroom on the ground floor. The upstairs loft will have a balcony and house an entertainment room and one-bedroom with an optional second bedroom and storage area.

In the center of Abbey Glen at Spanish Wells is a clubhouse with exercise room, on-site kitchen and a great room complete with pool table and a big screen plasma TV. It will be opened 24-hours, 7 days per week with access controlled by a keypad to insure security. There is also a pool, lanai and outdoor fireplace adjacent to the clubhouse.

Abbey Glen at Spanish Wells is currently offering attractive pre-construction pricing. As part of the new homeowner package, each buyer will also be provided initiation membership to Spanish Wells Club for a limited time. The club offers golf, tennis and a day dock and is just a few minutes by bike down a connected trail. The community is close to many of Hilton Head Island's most popular areas.

"Abbey Glen at Spanish Wells is just two minutes from the Cross Island Expressway," adds David. "From there it's a short five minutes to Sea Pines Circle."

Also, just about 10 minutes from the property are the white beaches for which the island is known, as well as numerous golf, tennis and water activities.

If an active lifestyle is not too far in your future, look into preconstruction prices of the first-ever "55 and Better" community on Hilton Head Island - Abbey Glen at Spanish Wells. Tall palmetto trees, the marsh, egrets, clams, shrimp and centuries-old oaks draped with Spanish moss are whispering your name. Finally live the life you have always imagined.
