2013 was a positive year for the Berkeley Hall real estate market. With 20 homes sold, it was the second best year in the last decade in terms of the number of homes sold. Actually, in an analysis of the years prior to 2004, last year was the second best year EVER for Berkeley Hall home sales, and only 2 homes less than the peak of 22 homes sold in 2011. Berkeley Hall's real estate market seems to be on the same positive trend as the rest of the Hilton Head area, where the MOST HOME SALES EVER IN HILTON HEAD'S HISTORY were recorded in 2013 with 2,730 homes sold.

What Do Residents Enjoy About Calling Berkeley Hall Their Home?
Berkeley Hall prides itself as the most exquisite Private Golf Club Community in the Hilton Head area. It began in 2000 as a highly exclusive two-core-course private club community. With its advantage of being the most recently developed private golf club community in the Hilton Head area, Berkeley Hall embodies the finest ideas and concepts drawn from some of the most outstanding communities around the country. It is located on the Okatie River in Bluffton, SC, and is seven miles from Hilton Head Island, SC.
Berkeley Hall’s core golf concept distinguishes itself from the conventional residential golf clubs where the fairways are marked with numerous homes. Berkeley Hall boasts of two unique, internationally designed championship golf courses that originate from the Clubhouse. These golf courses are extraordinarily artistic masterpieces designed by Tom Fazio.
Core golf is authentic golf that transports the golfers back to the halcyon days of Mackenzie and Ross. The game is the ultimate winner as a result. As Fazio likes to put it, “Golfers feel like they are taking a walk in a park rather than a ride through a subdivision.”
When Berkeley Hall was on the drawing board, its creators envisioned a community what would go way beyond the typical golf club that appeals primarily to men. The result of their outside-the-box thinking is Berkeley Hall's Amenity Village, where there is an underlying accent on amenities and activities that are appealing to women, children and grandchildren. No wonder then that one of the best compliments that the community ever received came from a distinguished female resident who said, “Living in Berkeley Hall is like living in a five-star resort minus the tourists.”
The Village enlivens the environment at Berkeley Hall. Flanked by the awe-inspiring Jeffersonian-style clubhouse on one end and the sprawling Spa and Fitness Center on the other, the “Village” creates an atmosphere of sheer fun, fitness and fellowship.
