New Construction and Development opportunities in Murrells Inlet, SC
Let me first say that when I am talking about Murrells Inlet, I am talking about the property between 17 Bypass and Business 17 in Murrells Inlet extending to the banks of the creek. I know there are other developments off 707 and Prince Creek that offer new construction, but I am going to focus on the heart of Murrells Inlet.
If you read my article on Murrells Inlet you should have a good idea of what Murrells Inlet has to offer as far as conveniences, and the naturally occurring amenities. Although most of the developments and new construction in Murrells Inlet does not offer the amenities that some of the larger developments offer; one thing it does offer is a close proximity to the water. Wherever the development or house is in this part of Murrells Inlet, you can be assured you are just a couple blocks from the water.
Creekside Cottages is a beautiful coastal neighborhood just a stones throw from the water in Murrells Inlet. This 66 lot community, features coastal house plans from such architects as Sater design out of Florida. Phase 3 of this community was just released this year, with only 13 lots remaining in phase 3. This phase of the community will feature a community pool. If you decide to purchase a lot, there is no time frame to build, no required builder, and a simple ARB process instead of the lengthy approval processes that become problematic in many of the new developments. Below is a picture taken from phase 3 with a small remote helicopter, this picture shows the close proximity of this development to the water in Murrells Inlet. Lots start around $200,000, with completed houses starting in the $500’s.
The Orchard in Murrells Inlet is a 35 lot development off Murrells Inlet Road. This development was once a pecan orchard, the developer made sure to keep as many of the pecan trees as possible when designing this development. I personally live in the Orchard; I have lived here about 2 years. The Orchard is only a couple blocks from the Post Office, and the public boat landing in Murrells Inlet. Lots in the Orchard start around $150,000 with houses starting in the low $400’s.
