Windmill Harbour, a vibrant 172-acre private residential community located on Hilton Head Island adjacent to the Intracoastal Waterway, offers panoramic views of the waterway and saltwater marshes.This community is one of exceptional beauty, temperate climate, pristine waterways, and majestic vegetation. The bordering Intracoastal Waterway provides a gentle sea-scented breeze through the harbour and community.
Located at the entrance to Hilton Head Island, Windmill Harbour enjoys an enviable location along South Carolina’s barrier island coast. Windmill Harbour is just minutes away from the public school campus, several private schools, Hilton Head Hospital, a variety of restaurants, shopping centers, and golf courses. Air travel is easily accessible as the Hilton Head Regional Airport and Savannah/Hilton Head International Airport are each just a 15 and 45 minute drive, respectively.
Clearly the centerpiece of the community, the unique harbour is home to over 260 boats of various sizes. It is the largest harbour on Hilton Head Island by nearly a hundred slips, available for ownership or rental.One of only three harbours with a lock system on the East coast, the lock system was constructed to create a protected haven from the weather and the changing tides. The lock is 80 feet long and 20 feet wide and is operated with the gravity flow of water, electricity, and hydraulics. Residents can have their boat just steps from their home – a boater’s dream come true.
The South Carolina Yacht Club is located within Windmill Harbour. Unlike clubs in many other communities, membership is not required for property ownership. However, membership affords boaters and land lovers alike a unique opportunity to enjoy fine dining, tennis, and club social events.
Windmill Harbour has a mix of single-family homes, townhomes, and condominiums in southern traditional style, similar to residences found in Charleston, SC. This is a community for active people and families of all ages where neighbors are friends.The community pool is just the place to swim laps or relax in the sun. Catch a glimpse of a pod of frolicking dolphins while kayaking in the Calibogue Sound.Cast a line, set a crab trap, or just take in the expansive view of the Intracoastal Waterway from one of the extended piers.
Enjoy biking or strolling around the Harbour or along the magnificent oak-shaded, brick walking paths winding throughout the community. Reminiscent of the squares in Savannah, Georgia, the “pocket park” is an inviting spot to enjoy socializing or just relaxing.
The unique history, breathtaking beauty, meticulous planning and unique Harbour have made Windmill Harbour a premier community in the Lowcountry.
