Cape Cod Cottages Waterfront Homes

Nothing can be finer than to own a waterfront home in  South Carolina. In Myrtle Beach, most of the beachfront condominiums and homes along the Grand Strand are dedicated vacation rental properties. Those looking for a more permanent luxury home find the Intracoastal Waterway home is a dream come true, especially those who enjoy boating water sports, and fishing. Some homes have private docks, and all have access to public boat docks. These Waterfront communities are becoming scarcer, as well as pricier, as time goes by.

Cape Cod Cottages, one of the unique new communities, offering 32 Cape Cod-style homes, is located off Ye Olde Kings Highway (the original Hwy 17), near Little River and overlooking Harbourgate Marina. The three-story cottages have parking on the ground level with living space above. Options provide a stair-less entry to the home for those prefer the safety and ease of an elevator.

Two floor plans are available, one offering 1769 sq. ft.  and one 1912 sq. ft. Both feature 3 bedrooms and 2 ½ baths. Adorned with the finest upgrades, such as granite countertops, 9-foot ceilings, luxury bathrooms, wood flooring, 3-car garages, and more make you feel like the king of your very own castle. Many homes sit directly on the waterfront or have stunning water views. Sodded and landscaped lots are maintained by the community HOA. Prices start at a very affordable $339,900, with available financing up to 100%.

The neighborhood’s children attend Ocean Drive Elementary School, North Myrtle Beach Middle School, and North Myrtle Beach High School. There is a community boat dock that features limited private slips.  For those who don’t own their own boat, membership to the Freedom Boat Club is included as a bonus. Right across the water, Filet’s, one of the area’s best waterfront restaurants, is a favorite place to eat. Seacoast Hospital is a few miles to the north and North Myrtle Beach is just a few miles to the south where you will find some of the best restaurants, newest shopping centers, and best beaches along the Grand Strand. Cape Cod Cottages is outside the city limits, so property taxes are lower.

Forestbrook Reserve

If you are looking for a house that offers a slightly more upscale lifestyle, Forestbrook Reserve might just be the neighborhood of your dreams.  The homes in the Reserve are a little larger than the those in Forestbrook Estates and Forestbrook Preserve, just down the road, and are mostly custom built. Featuring vinyl siding or brick exteriors, most of the homes have 5 bedrooms, making them perfect for large families, and offer 2-car garages, covered porches, formal dining rooms, and the most elegant upgrades.

Several builders have contributed to this community and you can find new constructions, well cared for houses that are more than 10 years old, and everything in between. Most homes are priced from $250,000 to around $350,000. More for lakefront properties. Some of the newer constructions are very affordably priced.  HOA fees are minimal.
Students attend Forestbrook Elementary School, Forestbrook Middle Schools, and Socastee High School. A beautiful 12-acre lake and a neighboring nature preserve provide a peaceful backdrop for these houses. Outside of the city limits, property taxes are low, and traffic is light. A lot of the homes have private pools. The landscaped streets and sidewalks add to the community’s curb appeal.

Located off Hwy 501, close to the Outlet Mall, the Reserve is just a short drive to the Grand Strand, with a plethora of great restaurants, shops, boutiques, and fun things to do, including the beaches.
