A 40-home, age-restricted community is planned for Spanish Wells Road near the entrance to Spanish Wells Plantation on Hilton Head Island.

The gated development will be built by Bluffton-based BGD of HHI, a franchise of Ohio-based Epcon Communities.

The community, called Abbey Glen at Spanish Wells, will be restricted to people 55 and older. Construction will start in the fall. Most of the homes will be just over 2,000 square feet and sell for between $498,900 and the mid-$600,000s, said David Brown, the franchisee and president of Southern Lifestyle Group Realty, which will sell the homes.

Abbey Glen at New River, a project by the same developer, got under way two years ago. It’s off of U.S. 278 behind Palmetto Electric Cooperative’s offices. About 40 percent of the houses in that 112-home development have been sold, but it is not age-restricted, Brown said.

However, both Abbey Glens provide condominium-like maintenance, where the management company handles all landscaping and other exterior services. Homeowners are only responsible for interior maintenance, Brown said.
