Home Discovery, rediscovered


130 Tidewater ManorThis masterpiece in the Tidewater Landing community can’t seem to stop collecting building and design accolades. Take a look inside.

In the past year, 130 Tidewater Manor has won Silver at the National Association of Home Builders’ Nationals in Las Vegas, was a Pinnacle Awards finalist at the South Carolina Home Builders Association and claimed Best Overall at the  Hilton Head Area Home Builders Association Lighthouse Awards, among its many local and national honors.

But for Todd Hawk, owner of H2 Builders, and wife Tracy, the initial idea was to simply turn a raw piece of land into a home wedded to its surroundings. “We’re very much outdoors people,” Tracy said. “The dark tile roof, the stone application, paver driveway, it’s all designed to aesthetically complement nature.” There’s also a sprawling outdoor entertainment area, complete with woodburning fireplace, pool with beach entry, summer kitchen and deepwater dock (where you can often find the couple’s son, Hunter, an avid 9-year-old fisherman).



But the couple also included in the 9,200-square-foot home a few “unusual materials,” including tile from Italy, 750-lb. ceiling beams reclaimed from a warehouse in Louisiana and two stained-glass pieces produced by Veronica’s Art Glass in Bluffton. “The lot is right around an acre, it was on the water, it had plenty of natural beauty and it was in a gated community,” said Tracy.

“You don’t find too many places like that here.”



“We’re very much outdoors people.
The dark tile roof, the stone application, paver driveway —
it’s all designed to aesthetically complement nature.”
