Wexford Real Estate Listings For Sale
Marathon Oil built Wexford using the Governor’s Mansion in Williamsburg, The Congressional Club in Washington, and the Cloisters in Sea Island as influences. Evidence of the grand intent lies in the Georgian marble entrance foyer and the stained glass skylights inside the plantation’s multi-million dollar clubhouse; another clue to the community’s elaborate nature is in the 24-carat gold lettered street signs, copper-domed street lamps, and the intricate hand-laid stone bridges. Unique to Wexford is the 37.5-acre harbour on Broad Creek containing 130 slips for resident use, not to mention the boat slips adjacent to estate homes for private dockage.
The entry gate is locked down with 24-hour security, keeping this private community safe yet allowing access to guests and visitors with residents’ permission.
Wexford Plantation History:
Plans for Wexford Plantation were approved in mid-1982 and underwent development at the same time as Shelter Cove, right after Long Cove Club got started. The Sea Pines Company designed Wexford to counter current Sea Pines residents’ dissatisfaction with the resort their neighborhood had become. It was envisioned as a private and upscale residential golf community, and became to wealth what Sea Pines was to nature and activity. Wexford was named for a British port known for being a major land-water connection, and was designed to attract residents to its land-water luxuries as well as its ideas for conservation.
Unique to Wexford is the 37.5-acre harbour on Broad Creek containing 130 slips for residents' use. Each watercraft may be up to 70 feet long with up to a 19-foot beam. One of these lots, if available, may be acquired at the marina where a full-time staff works 'round the clock to ensure entry or exit from the lock system takes no more than 10 minutes. The tide-free lock system provides access to Broad Creek 24/7; this one-of-a-kind system offers almost four miles of concrete partition and keeps the 37.5 acre harbour at least eight feet deep at all times (that's about 100 million gallons of water) to ensure the security of the enclosed boats. Some estate-sized homes on the harbor have private dockage.
Golf and Tennis Athletics:
The 18-hole private golf course, designed by Willard Byrd, is the annual qualifying site for the PGA Tour’s Heritage Classic, which is held later at Sea Pines. On average, fewer than 50 rounds are played per day, and a Head Pro with three assistant Pros are available for service. Members and children under 21 play for free, but watch out for the 72 sand traps—Wexford is not only a private course, but a creative one. Six clay Har-Tru courts, two of them lighted, possess views of the harbour and/or golf course. A Head Pro and assistant Pro are on site to help to-be players, offering group or private lessons.
