Architectural Review Board
The Sea Pines Covenants state:
“No building, fence or other structure shall be erected, placed or altered on any lot in Sea Pines until the proposed building plans, specifications, exterior color or finish, plot plan (showing the proposed location of such building or structure, drives and parking areas), and construction schedule shall have been approved in writing by the ARB, its successors or assigns. Refusal of approval of plans, location or specifications may be based by the ARB upon any ground, including purely aesthetic conditions, which in the sole and uncontrolled discretion of the ARB shall seem sufficient, except as otherwise provided herein. No alteration in the exterior appearance of any building or structure shall be made without like approval by the ARB.” The Board’s decisions are not bound or restricted by any precedent relating to existing construction within Sea Pines.
