56-acre Pine Island is near Hilton Head Island

A South Carolina Lowcountry island with a 6,000-square-foot house on it recently changed hands for $8 million.

The 56.1-acre private Pine Island at 8 Pine Island in Okatie, near Hilton Head Island, sold in late October, according to the Charleston-based Huguley Team of Daniel Ravenel Sotheby's International Realty.

Representatives of the Robert F. Greenhill Revocable Trust sold the property to Meredith C. Stines Declaration of Trust of Okatie, according to Beaufort County land records.

The real estate firm said the property sale, north of the developing Bluffton community, marks its highest-value transaction in 2022.

Pine Island is connected to the larger Spring Island by a causeway and is the private community's highest-recorded sale, according to the real estate agency.

Designed by architects William McDonough + Partners, the Japanese style-influenced home was built with materials such as recycled red western cedar and cypress logs reclaimed from the depths of ponds and rivers. The site includes additional structures and a deep-water dock on Chechessee Creek.

The property was co-listed with Spring Island Realty, the community's in-house firm. The opportunity of membership for the buyer in Spring Island's private club and its numerous amenity offerings was a key selling factor for Pine Island, according to Daniel Ravenel Sotheby's listing agent Jack Huguley.
