Foreclosure at DeBordieu?
Yes, it’s rare, but some lucky person is going to get a GREAT BUY on a foreclosure near the beach at DeBordieu. It’s not every day you can save over $1Mill on a real estate purchase. This gorgeous home was formerly listed at $2,795,000, but today, is listed as a foreclosure at $1,725,000. With 6 bedrooms and 6.5 baths, it’s perfect for a large family and has a good rental history. It’s located on the north side of DeBordieu, in the Ocean Park neighborhood. Ocean Park was originally planned for small, seaside Victorian cottages with cute white picket fences surrounding the common area croquet lawns. In fact, I can remember the big Ocean Park Grand Opening Croquet Tournament. I was the marketing director back then and wore, what I remember as, a very unflattering white Victorian get-up. It was too funny….but effective. We didn’t stick with the plan, however. Instead of cute little Victorian cottages, huge, palatial beach homes were built, some on the oceanfront, some with views of the beautiful lake behind the neighborhood, some adjacent to Arcadia Plantation, all within easy walking distance of DeBordieu’s Beach Club.

Back in 1977, my Kappa Delta "big sister," Paula Workman, took a bunch of us new sorority pledges from the University of South Carolina, down to her family’s oceanfront beach house at DeBordieu. I can remember wondering where the heck we were going and thinking, “Debi-who?”
That memory came back to me today when I re-visited the Workman House. It was a whole lot of fun back then, and it still is today. With 5 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, it’s a great rental, and at $2,100,000, a great value!
In addition to the Workman House, I took the opportunity this morning, to view some of the DeBordieu listings I hadn’t seen yet. I saw one other on the oceanfront, one on the creek, one near the beach, one near the tennis center, and one on DeBordieu’s private Pete Dye golf course. It was a great cross section of properties, so I thought I would tell you a little about each!

Oceanfront: the Hunter House is definitely one of the most unique beach homes you’ll ever see. From the oyster shell tabby exterior to its unique floor plan, there’s not another one like it! Great views and direct oceanfront! $2,495,000.

Creekhouse: the 5 bedroom, 5.5 bath Howerton House offers the best of two worlds because it is located on the DeBordieu Channel, and within walking distance from the beach. It's a great house, and a must see at $1,575,000.

Near the beach: loaded with decks and porches that offer spectacular views, the McInerney House at Ocean Oaks is stunning. With 5 bedrooms, 6.5 baths, and plenty of living areas, this home would be a good second home or primary residence! And just a short walk to the beach! $1,795,000.

Near the tennis center: The Low Country Edwards House in the new Colony Club section of DeBordieu is as charming as it is functional! 3 big bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2 half baths, beautiful hardwood & tile flooring, open living & kitchen area, large 1st floor master suit and large rear screen porch overlooking nature preserve at Hobcaw Barony. There’s nothing like having a wildlife refuge in your back yard! $999,000.

On the Golf Course: they say that the quintessential golf view is one looking first at water, then golf. Well, the Hurka House has just that. It’s a gorgeous home with an inverted floor plan, open kitchen, 5 bedrooms and 5.5 baths. $1,575,000.

Madrigal Feast was Fun and Festive!

Ushering in the Christmas Season, the Indigo Choral Society hosted a Madrigal Feast last Monday and Tuesday nights in Pawleys Island. After dinner, the first song of the concert was the highlight of MY evening, because it was composed and conducted by (drum roll, please) MY SON, Joey Kaz. What a tremendous opportunity it was for him to show-case his God-given talent to the local community. Jeff and I are so very proud of him.

People: Some of the talented members of the Indigo Choral Society are DeBordieu property owners! Pictured here from top to bottom are Lee Piepenbring, Karen English, Peggy Clary, Luke McCain and Bill Clary. We sure do have a lot of local talent in this community! And what a great event!

Places: I am delighted to inform you that I have listed my first oceanfront property at DeBordieu. The Martin house, appropriately referred to on the rental program as “Paradise Found” is located on the north end of DeBordieu’s beach and offers 6 bedrooms and 5 and half baths! The new buyer will need to honor all rentals scheduled for this summer, but there a few weeks still available if you know someone looking to accommodate a large family. We don’t have it up on the real estate website yet, but the link will allow you to take a look at it on the rental site. Give me a shout if you would like for me to send you the virtual tour once it is complete.

Things: Office Update… walls are now painted and the light cover back on so it isn’t so blindingly bright. It’s actually quite nice! I hope you will stop by and visit soon!
