Guestbook comments from the owner
"I wanted to write you and tell you how much we loved your home. We had a simply amazing time. The weather was great. I adore the authenticity of the house and the location is superb. Is it a Sea Pine original? We celebrated my daughter's second birthday and I couldn't keep my son off the beach! We will definitely be back. Thank you for the memories and I wish you well." (N.B., in answer to the question, our place was the 65th home built in Sea Pines. It was totally renovated in 1998 (and updated since then) to keep it current while we think retaining its original Low Country character).
Vicky & Ted Leavitt
We are Americans who have lived in London since 1999. Our Hilton Head house is our residence in the States that we rent out when we are not there and to maintain the property. Hilton Head is our favorite place in the world, but we do get out and about every once in awhile.
Hilton Head is in our blood. Ted's grandmother came from Bluffton before leaving in 1911 and the relatives owned places like Rose Hill, Victoria Bluff, and Kirk's Bluff (along the May River) back when land was cheap, cheap (1800s - 1960s)
Our house has been in the Leavitt family since Ted's father bought the property from Charles Fraser on a hunting trip in the early 1960s. We bought the house in 1998 and then did a complete renovation in order to bring the house up to date. The old beach houses were very open (you had to go outside to the downstairs bedroom!) and we converted it to its present 5-bedroom, 5-bath format, while maintaining the character from the early days of Sea Pines.
Having come to Hilton Head since 1962, our house reflects the dichotomy of a modern version of an original Sea Pines beach cottage with the simplicity of beach life. We personally feel the privacy of our setting is a unique benefit, but each person will have their own viewpoint.
