What is different about Ocean Creek from other condominiums? Ocean Creek is a 57-acre master planned ocean front resort stretching from the Atlantic Ocean to Highway 17. It offers a diverse mix of resort real estate opportunities. These range from luxurious ocean front high-rise residences; Tower North and Tower South, to the private Garden Homes, Greens, and Tennis Villas or the Lodge Villas surrounded by trees and pools.
When the Ocean Creek was begun, the developers; Summey Building Systems, a subsidiary of the Dana Corporation, engaged internationally acclaimed architect; Robert Lamb Hart of New York, to create a master plan for the 57-acre ocean front tract. With clients such as Walt Disney Organization, Callaway Gardens and The Greenbrier, Hart had the vision for an ocean front resort that succeeded in preserving the ecology of the beach and the woods yet evolving into an active resort community.
Before the first plans were drawn, a tree survey was completed of the entire property. All trees more than four inches in diameter were platted and buildings were placed so, where ever possible, these trees were preserved. The entire site on the ocean side of the Creek was dedicated to the ocean front Beach Club, so all residents and guests would be able to enjoy the ultimate ocean front experience. A central green belt was incorporated that extends from the entrance of the property to the Beach Club. This allows an immediate connection to nature and the ocean starting at the time an owner or guest enters the community. The walk to the beach under the beautiful canopy of trees, with the ocean in view is a great pleasure. Shouldn’t getting there be part of the fun?!
Personally, I feel a sense of calm whenever I turn off Hwy 17 and drive under the canopy of Live Oak trees that grace the entrance of Ocean Creek. Much different from so many condominiums which are just a building, pool and a parking lot; living in or visiting Ocean Creek Plantation, is to experience what life in a residential sea-side resort should be.
