Beach House Tour: Hilton Head Island

Well, friends, I think I am moving. My husband doens't know it yet, but he will know it as soon as he reads today's post. :-)

Our family loves vacations, and it seems lately we always end up in sunny Florida. Now don't get me wrong, it's beautiful there, and I love it. But I am girl with southern blood, and I feel more comfortable in the southern states where you can really FEEL the charm and the history of the area.

Today's featured beach home in Hilton Head is only 45 minutes away from Savannah, GA, the oldest city in the state of Georgia. This home also happens to be for sale.

It is a beach house AND a lake house. You don't have to choose! You have this beautiful, private view in your back yard and just a short drive to get to the beach.

The property looks to be well cared for and decorated, in a modern beach style. From the information on the listing, it seems as though that piece of art might be a motorized hidden TV. I'm all in.

This gourmet kitchen features a subzero freezer and a faucet at the stove to fill your pasta pot the easy way. The pendant lights add enough orange to the room, so I might change the paint color, but so far that is the ONLY thing I could even think about changing.

I can just see the mister and me hanging out here in the evening, reading quietly side by side, each next to his-and-her pendant lights. (This shows the strength of my imagination. I have completely blocked out the 2-year-old between us in the "H" formation, and the fact that my hubby isn't a book reader. He prefers his news and information at lightening speed and in as few words as possible, just the way he likes me, ha ha. But I digress ...)

I really love the shelf beneath the mirror here and that touch of green that warms up the space (I have just made a note to myself to find some leafy greens for my bathroom.) The sinks also cannot be ignored. I have never seen any like these before. There wasn't any specific information on that shower and all the tricks it can perform, but it's pretty obvious that it is something special. Perhaps that is a question for the realtor, Mr. Robert Young.

I can imagine the negotiating that will go on when the girls discover this room and adjoining bathroom.

This rec room could easily become a bedroom with just the right rug to cozy up that beautiful, shining wood floor. But who needs to sleep when there is pool! Billiards? That awesome game!

And an exercise room!

This has to be the best thing about the whole place ... the lanai with an outdoor seating area, a fully equipped kitchen, and a tropical pool area.

The outdoor kitchen features granite counter tops, and under counter refrigerator, and a commercial exhaust hood over the stove. And the pool features pure. joy.

The moss hanging from the trees, giving me that nostalgic feeling ... that comes free of charge. Sigh.
