Interestingly, the name “Scaup Wren”—for which this lovely neighborhood is named, probably needs some explanation. A “scaup” is a Eurasian, North American, and New Zealand diving duck, the male of which has a black head with a green or purple gloss. Then, next, the name “wren” refers to a small bird with brown feathers and a short tail that points upward. Thus, the name of this neighborhood Scaup Wren. South Beach homes are close to the ocean , with beach paths, and many boast spacious bedrooms, full baths, vaulted ceilings, large laundry rooms, fireplaces, natural light, and fenced courtyards. The homes are bright and airy; some even have hot tub atriums. A bonus would be for you to spot both a scaup and a wren on the same afternoon walk! While you’re strolling, see if you can locate Yellow fringed orchids, Yellow canna, and Buttonbush flowering plants.
Additional Information About Sea Pines Plantation On Hilton Head Island, SC
Sea Pines owners enjoy residency in a full-service plantation with a broad array of amenities. Three shopping districts exist within the Sea Pines gates at Sea Pines Center, the shops at Harbour Town, and also at South Beach Marina Village. Additionally, Park Plaza shopping center and the commercial district at Sea Pines Circle are just outside Sea Pines main gate. Going back into the plantation, the first amenity that one comes upon is the Sea Pines Forest Preserve - Greenwood entrance - which is a 605+ acre nature preserve filled with trails, lakes, historic sites, and more undisturbed nature than is available elsewhere on the island, and particularly behind gates. Further in on Greenwood Drive, the visitor will come upon the Six Oaks Cemetery, Lawton Stables and animal petting farm, and Heritage Farms, where garden plots of varying sizes are available to residents on a first-come/first-serve basis for those that are inclined to do their own planting. Sea Pines has two beach clubs, both on Sea Pines Drive: Tower Beach Club on South Beach is for owners only and the Sea Pines Beach Club, across from the Plantation Club, is for owners and guests (renters). Those desiring a historical perspective of Sea Pines would not want to miss the Stoney Baynard Ruins on Plantation Drive in the Heritage Woods subarea.
