16 Tabby Links Lane; Okatie SC 29909
DESCRIPTIONIn the late 1700’s the owner of Spring Island chose a site nearby for his home (today’s Old Tabby Ruins). The same Port Royal Sound panorama enjoyed then remains one of the finest to be found anywhere in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. Add the view of the Old Tabby Link’s 18th green to the home’s convenient proximity to the golf club house and you have the most desirable locations on the island.
The architecture is classic and uncomplicated. Round brick pillars, inspired by a nearby plantation, a slate roof and Savannah gray brick combine to give the home a sense of solidity. Wide porches provide comfortable space to entertain and enjoy the outdoors and views of the golf, distant islands and the Sound on one side and Old Tabby Ponds on the other.
The floor plan is inviting. A foyer leads to the living room featuring a raised hearth brick fireplace on the north end of the home and a distinctive staircase which separates the living and dining rooms. The dining room features a second brick fireplace and built-in wine storage racks and adjoins a splendidly equipped kitchen. Off the living room is a room with a wet bar currently in use as a den. Adjacent to it is a full bath which allows the den to become an additional bedroom when needed. The home’s second floor contains a master bedroom suite with a beautifully appointed marble bathroom and dressing room, a comfortable guest room with bath, and conveniently located laundry room.
Originally designed as a residence, the home served initially as the Spring Island Club’s Golf House until the present facility was constructed. Those who recall the early days at Spring Island have fond memories of sitting on the porch, recounting the day’s events and enjoying the stunning views.
