Consider this rarely-offered, waterfront townhouse situated along the 18th fairway of the famed Harbour Town Golf Links, home of the RBC Heritage of Golf PGA tournament. Boasting spectacular, far and wide deepwater views along the Calibogue Sound, this three level townhouse enjoys one of the most coveted locations and vistas on Hilton Head Island.
Tucked away in a quiet corner of the popular Harbour Town neighborhood of Sea Pines Plantation, 22 Genoa Court enjoys privacy and a great sense of neighborhood along this double cul-de-sac lane. The townhouse property is accessed by a brick-lined concrete driveway, offering guest parking as well as direct access to the front-loading 3+ car garage.
Oyster shell finished columns and stucco walls flank the home’s brick staircase as it rises from the driveway to the elevated front entry. Custom wrought-iron railings, designer light fixtures, and integrated step lights accent the home’s handsome entry as twin glass entry doors are paired with four fixed-pane clerestory windows reaching up 2+ stories for a dramatic architectural statement welcoming you inside.
The light and bright entry foyer is finished with hardwood flooring as the tall ceiling line is accented with a modern chandelier, while integrated display niches greet you as a set of stairs rises to the main living level.
The great room dominates the first living level of the townhome, offering quality finishes such as hardwood floors, smooth-finish ceiling with recessed lighting, Carrera-marble-surround gas fireplace with custom wood mantel, private elevator stop, and a wall of glass overlooking the golf course, the marsh, and the Calibogue Sound. A set of sliding glass doors provides convenient access to a handy grilling deck, as well as the elevated rear deck, which enjoys outstanding views as it is conditioned with three overhead ceiling fans. Stairs lead from the rear deck down to the courtyard-style patio, featuring a slate rock garden with tropical plants, and room for a possible private swimming pool or spa.
The spacious eat-in kitchen enjoys a continuation of hardwood flooring, a smooth-finish ceiling with recessed lighting, and a full complement of stainless steel appliances including GE Profile fridge/freezer with in-door ice/water service, GE Profile 4-burner gas cook top, GE Profile dishwasher, and a GE Profile wall oven. Other special features of the kitchen include an updated solid-surface countertop, including a breakfast bar pass-thru to the great room, contemporary all-white cabinetry, and a spacious breakfast room filled with natural light from an impressive double garden window.
The first floor also plays host to a flexible room, currently being used as the dining room. This room is conveniently located adjacent to the breakfast room (with double pocket doors), and also enjoys secondary access from the great room, including private access to a beautifully-renovated full bathroom. This light and bright space could readily serve as a fourth bedroom, den/office, media room, etc. Serving as the powder room as well, the adjacent full bathroom boasts travertine stone flooring, furniture-style vanity with contemporary counter, and a walk-in travertine stone shower.
A wide set of stairs finished with hardwood treads and a designer carpet runner rises from the first floor to the bedroom level, where a light-filled hallway provides access to three en-suite bedrooms.
The master bedroom is oversized, and enjoys dramatic waterfront and golf views in a private setting. Featuring a soaring vaulted ceiling line, this handsome space is appointed with hardwood flooring, smooth-finish ceiling, ceiling fan, and twin sliding glass doors for private access to the waterfront balcony. The suite further features a spacious and lavish master bathroom, complete with tile flooring, twin extended-length vanities, Jacuzzi soaking tub, and a tile-surround walk-in shower.

Hardwood stairs lead from the second-floor hallway up to the home’s private observation and sunning deck. This unique outdoor-living space offers some of the most spectacular, high-elevation water views available on Hilton head Island. Looking across the golf course and the Calibogue Sound out to Daufuskie Island, this private sunning deck presents a commanding location to enjoy golf spectating and boat activity…not to mention truly superb sunset views in this West-facing location.
