Buck Island in Hilton Head, South Carolina was originally part of the Brams Point section of Spanish Wells Plantation.
One of the lumber companies in the area dredged the section separating what is now Buck Island from the current end of Brams Point to create a faster cut-through passage for their lumber barges instead of going the long way around the peninsula.
The property is comprised of three parcels and includes the main house, guest house, greenhouse, and utility garage.
The three bedroom guest house was built in 1984. The contractors lived in this house while building the main house (nearly 7,000 sq ft) in 1988 which is built with Western Red Cedar.
There are custom made curved windows throughout the house.
The main house has a gorgeous atrium, wine closet, private study, and spacious suites.
The unique library has leather floors.
From the turret at the top of house you can look out and see all the way to the Talmadge Bridge in Savannah, GA.
A cart path throughout the property made of ground recycled tires. In addition to the 10-acre building property, there are 110 acres of surrounding marshlands.
The property has extensive landscaping with beautiful oak trees with dripping Spanish moss, and a large koi pond with water fountains and waterfalls. Buck Island is listed for $5.5 million with Dunes Real Estate, an affiliate of Luxury Portfolio International®.
