This neighborhood boasts private lots and beautiful homes with golf and lagoon views. If asked about the meaning of the word, “bateau” (sometimes spelled “batteau), residents will probably respond with the encyclopedia definition: “A bateau or batteau is a shallow-draft, flat-bottomed boat which was used especially in the colonial period. It was pointed at both ends but came in a wide variety of sizes. So, in essence, the name derives from the French word, bateau, which is simply the word for boat and the plural, bateaux, follows the French, an unusual construction for an English plural. In the southern United States, the term is still used to refer to flat-bottomed boats, including those elsewhere called jon boats. So, in essence, the name of this classy neighborhood has a classy name.
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. More information can be found on the Sea Pines Property Owners Association web site: www.seapinesliving.com.
