Selling like Hotcakes!!!!

Why are Homes Selling like Hotcakes in DeBordieu’s Patewood North?

Is it because of the beautiful canopy of trees? The tranquil lakes? The adjacency of the nature conservation easement? The convenience of being close to the entrance of DeBordieu while still being in within golf cart distance to the beach? Actually, I think it’s a combination of all those things. At this writing, 3 homes and one homesite in Patewood North are under contract. BUT FEAR NOT……there are other opportunities!

In fact, LaBaugh Builders are offering two brand new homes to be built in Patewood North. Both are preconstruction values where the future owner is able to make personal selections on flooring, cabinetry, appliances, colors and other customized decisions.

109 Woodstork Lane - this 4 BR home is located on a CORNER , on a LAKE, on a CUL-DE-SAC. The open floor plan offers a serene view of the lake from the main living areas and 1st floor master suite. The 2nd BR is downstairs, while the 3rd and 4th are upstairs; each features its own private bathroom. Click the address for more info.

59 Bald Eagle Court - All on ONE level, this 4BR home offers breathtaking lake views from both the screened back porch and the lowcountry front porch. Located on a quiet cul-de-sac, the open floor plan offers a tranquil view of the lake from the main living areas and large screened porch with a more private view from the master bedroom suite. Click the address for more info.

For more information about the builder, including some glowing testimonials, go to Better yet, come to DeBordieu and sit down with Tom LaBaugh. Not only is he a talented builder...but he's really easy going and fun to talk to.

The Ice Man Cameth......

The Ice Man Cameth to DeBordieu, and thank God, WENTETH!
Today at DeBordieu we're enjoying balmy temps in the low 60's, but last week, it was a bit chilly! We're not used to that around here!

Some really great pictures were taken on DeBordieu's private Pete Dye Golf Course. After the sprinklers had a opportunity to douse the landscape with water, Mr. Freeze did his thing.

Also, the pipe for an outdoor shower at one of our popular beach houses busted and created this beautiful scene. Incidentally, we've started taking reservations in oceanfront beach homes for this summer. Call or email me if you need any help with securing a place for you and your family.

DeBordieu's #17 in "Dream 18"

Pete Dye without the "whips and chains!"
Recently in the Sun News, DeBordieu's #17 was again named as one of the "Dream 18"....the best 18 holes in the Grand Strand area. (Click on Dream 18 and it will take you to the article.) Now that's about 100 courses! about 1800 golf holes! Which is pretty dang good!

I can remember when we first opened the course in 1987, and debuted in the country's Top 100, one of the more "colorful" golf writers called it "Pete Dye without the whips and chains." Most of Dye's courses have reputations for being really tough. While DeBordieu's course is absolutely gorgeous, and tends to change with whichever way the wind is blowing, golfers familiar with Dye's other great courses have said that DeBordieu is a bit more "user-friendly." According to the article, #17 might just be the exception!
Now here's the really good news....I just HAPPEN to have two EXCELLENT lot values for sale on #17! Both are large, both feature excellent trees, both offer panoramic views of water then golf, and both are within easy golf cart distance from the beach.

Lot 21 Luvan is conveniently across the street from DeBordieu's private boat landing and offers a view of the beautiful lake and the 17th tee. Click on the link to see some excellent pictures of the lot, it's view, and the site plan with dimensions.

Lot 5 Luvan is a bit closer to the beach and offers a fabulous veiw of the 17th green and 18th tee.
