About Tom Hunt
Tom and Janet are Charlotte residents with children ranging in age from 18 to 29. After spending most of their working careers in the Philadelphia area, we relocated to Charlotte in 2006 where Janet began work at Bank of America and Tom started a 'second career' as a math teacher. Tom is also an avid bridge player and both Janet and Tom look forward to playing bridge on Kiawah. We also enjoy bike riding and playing tennis.
Tom Hunt purchased this house in 2011
Why Tom Hunt chose Kiawah Island
We chose Kiawah Island because we love it there. Tom grew up spending his summers at Kiawah at one of the original houses on Eugenia Avenue. During good weather, he spent his time bodysurfing, turtle, alligator and bird watching, boating and exploring the island. Rainy days meant hearts, bridge, scrabble and Trivial Pursuit. Our honeymoon was spent on Kiawah. Tom's brother also has a house on Kiawah. We would like to eventually retire at Kiawah.
What makes this house unique
We purchased this property in 2011 and the prior owner did not rent it. This property feels like home and not like a rental property.
