It’s been on and off the market for several years (and dropped nearly $3 million in price since its initial listing) but the $17.8 million private island estate Little Hawkins is no less impressive than when it was first listed.
Located just off Sea Island (and part of the prestigious resort community The Cloister) this award-winning private island surrounded by marshland offers gorgeous water views and deep water access. Perfect for the privacy seeker, you’ll get to your three-acre paradise by 110-foot concrete bridge, enjoying four unique buildings with 22,000 square feet of indoor space — a main residence, two guest cottages and your own personal “club.”
We could see Leo or someone equally eco-conscious picking up Little Hawkins — it was designed with green practices in mind, using geothermal energy from 30 onsite wells to provide the property’s heating and cooling systems.
Designed in the Spanish colonial style, the house has some California influence, offering ornate stone columns, lush landscaping, and custom-designed ironwork door.
Listed furnished, the interior features a mix of antique and contemporary furnishings from around the globe: think Persian and Turkish hand-woven rugs, African mahogany doors, and Spanish terracotta tiles.
You’ll never need to leave the property to enjoy a day of adventure – the private on-island club features an outdoor pool, spa, clubroom, bar, gym and locker room facilities, as well as a private dock, deep water frontage, and more.
Despite the long time on the market, the property is currently being maintained with landscaping, housekeeping, butler staff, a chef and security and is available with or without the current staff.
