Cozy, All Ages Community of Abbey Glen in Hardeesville, South Carolina is West of Hilton Head Island and Has Inviting Single Family Homes and Town Homes
Hardeeville is located just to the west of Hilton Head Island on the southern South Carolina coast. It has been one of the fastest growing towns in the state, thanks in part to its proximity to its famous neighbor. It is also the setting for Abbey Glen, an all ages community popular with baby boomers and retirees.
Construction of Abbey Glen began in the mid-2000s and continues today. Terranova Group is the builder. The community is small with just 112 single family homes and town homes. Residences are single story or two story, and exteriors are low maintenance vinyl with a combination of speckled, sandstone-colored brick and stone, giving the community a European flair.
The single family homes, also known as the Magnolia series, are "L" shaped with the front entrance and garage at an angle to one another. Pitched roofs and dormer windows are standard. These homes come in one size, 2,280 square feet, with two to three baths and two to three bedrooms.
Three series of town homes, the Cathedral, the Courtyard and the Ranch, are available. They have from approximately 1,325 square feet to 2,600 square feet with one to three bedrooms and two to three baths. Crescent windows and plantation shutters are standard, and each home has an attached garage.
Interior features in both the single family homes and the town homes include vaulted ceilings, granite countertops, a soaker tub, hardwood floors, a fireplace and more. Some town homes have a private courtyard or sunroom, and some single family homes have a fenced-in backyard.
Prices begin in the low-$200,000s. Please verify this with a Realtor as prices may change.
Abbey Glen is nicely landscaped with gardens, a fountain and new trees. The attractive clubhouse has a fitness center, a billiards room, a catering kitchen and a beautiful sunroom. Outside, a shimmering pool and a stamped concrete sundeck await.
Hardeeville is essentially two communities. The downtown area has older homes and some commercial development. The New River section is along U.S. 278, which runs directly to Hilton Head Island, and it has several master-planned developments (including Abbey Glen).
Coastal Carolina Hospital is in Hardeeville and is accredited by the Joint Commission.
Summer temperatures are in the 80s and 90s, and winter temperatures are in the 40s and 50s. On average, the area receives 52 inches of rain per year.

Francisco de Gordillo explored the present-day South Carolina coast during 1521 but was unable to establish a town. The French also failed to colonize in 1562. The English settled here in 1670, but they moved on to Charleston when the conditions worsened. The two Carolinas split officially in 1729. The state was the first to leave the Union during the Civil War.
South Carolina was once primarily agricultural and still grows peanuts, watermelons, peaches and tobacco. Today, though, it is mostly known for its textile mills. Wood products, asbestos, steel, pulp and chemicals are particularly important. A commercial tea plantation, and the only one in America, lies on an island 20 miles South of Charleston.
Top attractions include Fort Sumter, which is a national monument, the aircraft carrier USS Yorktown, the Cypress Gardens (located in Charleston), Hilton Head resorts, the Cowpens National Battlefield, the Botanical Gardens and the Riverbanks Zoo.

55+ Communities and Single People
It often seems as though 55+ communities are full of happily married people. This is not always the case, though, as the demographic fact is that women often outlive their spouses. It is true that newer developments draw couples because newer developments tend to draw younger retirees. This is simply because older communities have residents who moved in longer ago. Older developments have more singles, particularly women, because the residents are often older. As to where to find single men, that is out of our area of expertise.
