I agree, she is either being very gentle with us or very very devious.
I like the idea of a Dream Home in South Carolina, but this isn't the first one in that state, right? I seem to recall hearing that there has been at least one other? I'll have to go back and research that.
I have a friend who had a home in Rock Hill, S.C. and I've visited there several times, what a beautiful area. It was at he foothills of the Piedmont Mountains just 15 miles south of Charlotte N.C. I liked it there. I've never visited the cast of S.C. I'm going to have to do that one day.
Are you speaking of Bill and Vickie Naggie? 2012 DH winners? My condolences for their loss. God Bless.
CplusE; I posted this on the last clue, (along with some other facts pertaining to NC), but thought they may help stimulate your investigative mojo here as well. Below are just some of those research facts I threw together as food for thought.
-S.C. was Settled in 1670 - it was the 8th State to enter the union - May 23, 1788 (figure 8 in the sand in clue 1)
-Robert Heath (clue 2 portrait) notionally founded both North Carolina and South Carolina. He was on a commission to consider the tobacco trade with Virginia in 1627-8. In 1629 he was awarded a patent for the Province of Carolina, but in fact he made no settlements there. The grant also mentioned the Bahamas, the beginning of their colonial history.
-And as for clue 3 the folks on here are very right, the photo is of Kiawah Island near Charleston South Carolina. So that is my vote. Whatcha think?
Pt. 2 - Here is still one more thing to consider: Figure Eight Island is an island in North Carolina, just north of Wrightsville Beach, with approximately 441 homes. - It is a private island and that can only be reached via a guarded causeway bridge. It has been a popular destination for celebrities and politicians - The island has an area of 1,300 acres, most of the area is marshland. - Because of its private nature, Figure Eight Island is an ideal place for wild life conservation. The homeowners' association takes advantage of this and is active in conservation. (So if it turns out to be N.C. I highly doubt the home will be on Figure 8 Island, but maybe in view of it)
Pt.1 - Yes it is a portrait of Robert Heath, no doubt about it. Below are just some research fact I threw together as food for thought. However, consider what Wikipedia states about him. - Heath notionally founded both North Carolina and South Carolina. He was on a commission to consider the tobacco trade with Virginia in 1627-8. In 1629 he was awarded a patent for the Province of Carolina, but in fact he made no settlements there. The grant also mentioned the Bahamas, the beginning of their colonial history. - Here is another fact to take into consideration: S.C. ? Settled in 1670 - 8th State to enter the union - May 23, 1788 - N.C. ? Settled in 1660 – 12th state to enter the union - Nov. 21, 1789
I'd rather see Candice in action. Vern just doesn't hit it with me. But to each his own.
Congratulations to everyone who seriously figured it to be Miami.
Understandable, they are huge urban areas. For a country girl like myself, 30,000 folks is urban. So I guess it begs the question; what does count as "URBAN" to HGTV. Urban sprawl has taken over a good deal of Floridas coastlines and you cannot discern where one city stops and the next begins.
I learned the other day that Key West, Florida is 5 square miles and that there are 4,000 people per square mile. I believe that is some tight livin'. Even could be considered urban to my way of thinking.
Hey Mary!!! What does HGTV consider urban. LOL!! I'm such a hick.
And the American Riviera is Fort Lauderdale, Florida. But ships don't dock there and I don't recall any horse racing or lighthouses in Ft. L. proper Lighthouse and racing in Pompano, cruise ships dock in Miami...
Mary, you lied, these are not straight forward clues.
