Quintessential Southern charm and history in walking distance of Ocean Drive’s Main Street. This majestic, custom-built 4 BR, 4 BA corner lot home in Tilghman Estates is modeled after the historic Hopsewee Plantation in Georgetown County, and it was remodeled in 2008. Discover the home’s hidden nook that offers tranquil views of the ocean; blueprints to convert this space into a rooftop deck are available. Other features include an elevator and a conveying golf cart, perfect for quick trips to the beach, and beach access is only a block away! The highlight of the home is the grand staircase and leaded, stained-glass window, created in the early 1900’s by a local Little River artist whose work also appears in local churches, The Parson’s Table restaurant, and throughout many famous Southern buildings and homes. From the home’s screened and open porches (refurbished in 2017 with 30-year-warranty Duxxbak decking), enjoy a glass of sweet tea, a good book, and the impeccable landscaping, including azaleas, jonquils, amaryllis, camellias, a Meyers lemon tree, and a fig and a loquat tree that both produce delicious fruit every year. (History note: The woman who created this magnificent garden holds another claim to fame. She was the first woman to be photographed for wearing a mini skirt in downtown Charlotte; the story made the front page of the newspaper.) The gourmet kitchen provides an island, pantry, granite countertops, and stainless-steel appliances. The inverted floor plan offers a dining area, bedroom (and en-suite bathroom), and a grand room with crown moldings, polished hardwood floors, built-in bookshelves, a fireplace, and warm natural light. On the lower level, the foyer provides access to three more bedrooms. In addition to the lovely features of this "Grand Dame" home, its central location gives you plenty of entertainment options that make coastal Carolina such a wonderful place to live. Tranquil beaches, a plethora of restaurants, championship golf courses, the Alabama Theater, and Barefoot Landing (an outdoor, waterfront shopping experience) are all within reach in the sunny town of North Myrtle Beach. The Ocean Drive section of the town also gives you the coveted Private Surf Club with golfing and tennis, Fat Harold’s “Shagging Dance Capital of the World,” and the annual “Music on Main” summer concert series. This home truly offers a plantation lifestyle with an ocean view.
