Atlantic Pointe – Hilton Head Ocean Front Properties For Sale
Atlantic Pointe is the thirteenth ‘T-Street’ inside the Sea Pines Plantation Ocean Gate where the most-coveted ocean properties reside. Atlantic Pointe is one of the mid-sized T-Streets and has 17 properties located on it, arranged first through third-row. One unique attribute of Atlantic Pointe is that it is the only T-Street with a community pool and tennis courts. It affords the resident an ocean front or ocean-row experience and reasonably quick and easy ingress/egress from Sea Pines Plantation. In addition to being accessible to the Ocean Gate, Atlantic Pointe – Hilton Head Ocean Front Properties For Sale owners are close to Hilton Head Prep School and Sea Pines Montessori School, the Sea Pines Forest Preserve, with over 600 acres of pristine and largely undisturbed nature as it was, the newly rebuilt Sea Plantation Club, where residents have access to restaurants, meeting rooms, and the Ocean and Heron Pointe golf courses, along with the freshly reconstructed Sea Pines Beach Club.
Home owners live in Gone with the Wind-type homes here at Atlantic Ponte, but unfortunately Rhett Butler cannot great you at his door. As you view this antebellum upscale property, you will enjoy the southern end of the beach, with only a three-to-five minute walk to the sand and surf. Plantation shutters adorn many of the homes here, and lush foliage makes this a lovely place to live. Residents enjoy Red Cedar Juniper, Chusan Palms, Windmill Palms, and Star Pines. Cabbage Palms, Camellias, and Blue Passion Flowers make this street glorious and serene.
There are a total of 29 T-Streets with some 625 +/- properties on these T-Streets, dependent upon how many have been combined since the last writing. The “T-Street” is a concept alleged to have been developed by Stewart Dawson of Boston land planning firm Sasaki Associates in the late 1950s as a response to Mr. Charles Fraser’s concerns with the ability of the resort to sell properties not on the ocean within a reasonable time. Hideo Sasaki, professor and Chairman of the Harvard Graduate School of Landscape Design, was part of the ‘brain trust’ that Mr. Fraser put together in the early days of ‘Sea Pines University’, drawing from Ivy League, UNC-Chapel Hill, Duke, and UVa. As a reference, ocean front lots were originally priced at $5,300 at original release in 1957. By the time of the first Heritage Classic, the price had risen to approximately $100,000 and more.
