If you live by the tides and are in search of an exclusive yachting community on Hilton Head Island, then consider Wexford Plantation.
Wexford Plantation has its own level of prestige that stems from its namesake, Wexford, Ireland, which is a shallow harbor town on the southeastern coast of the country. It has been said that in 1690 Alexander Trench sailed from Wexford, Ireland to the Port Royal Sound, which is now part of Hilton Head Island. Developer Willard Byrd was inspired by the inland canals of Ireland when he began designing Wexford and envisioned a lock-controlled harbor to be the centerpiece of the plantation.
Wexford offers you an elegant lifestyle, uncompromised luxury, distinctive architecture and the finest of amenities such as the lock-controlled harbor, Arnold Palmer Signature golf course and loads of social activities. When you purchase a home within the extremely private 500-acre community, you will quickly learn that ownership has its privileges. As a homeowner, you automatically become a member, joining an elite group of less than 500 families.
The private community is secured by a gate, which is manned 24 hours a day. As well as roving security patrol throughout the neighborhood. There is no public access in Wexford and the amenities and facilities are for use by you, your family and invited guests only.
LIFE ON THE WATER
Yachting is more than a pastime in Wexford; it’s a way of life. Enjoying the water is on most everyone’s daily to-do list. With Wexford Plantation’s rare lock-controlled harbor and easy access to the Broad Creek and Intracoastal Waterway, it’s easy to see why. As a member of the yacht club, you have access to one of 280 boat slips, 138 of them are located directly behind privately owned homes and the remainder behind the clubhouse for the exclusive use of property owners.
The advantages of the lock-controlled harbor are many, but it provides 24-hour-a-day access, security and minimizes tidal fluctuation and depth changes. The Yacht Club is home to a full-time Harbormaster and staff. Services include boat washing, detailing, maintenance and repair, all in-house. And because of Wexford’s ideal location along the Atlantic Coast, you can easily visit ports from Maine to the Caribbean.
