The Pepe Home, Black Creek Plantation
The word “spacious” hardly describes this more-than-8,500-square-foot Mediterranean-style home, with six bedrooms and seven baths on a three-acre lot. Walk in and look up to the two-story atrium framed by a pair of curving stairways leading to a second-floor gallery. The soaring living room features a floor-to-ceiling rock fireplace and a curving wall of glass giving panoramic views of the pool, patio and lushly landscaped back yard. For the food-and-wine lover, the kitchen features a wine cellar and two pantries plus a butler’s pantry. With the home’s young, active family in mind, there’s a pool/patio area with an indoor kids’ playground that’s fully screened. For older (i.e., adult) kids, a second-floor media room features eight reclining, movie-style chairs and full-surround sound.
The Pettus Home, N. Ocean Boulevard
This nearly-5,000-square-foot oceanfront home on Myrtle Beach’s “Golden Mile” features unobstructed ocean views from both indoors and out, from its floor-to-ceiling windows and soaring bleached-maple ceilings that seem to blend into the sky, to the wide porches and poolside patio. The home has six bedrooms (three of them master suites) and six baths inside, plus a half-bath at poolside — a temperature-controlled saline infinity pool. Its great room contains a gas-fired fireplace, faced with white-painted tabby stone; patio doors open and close via remote control and there is a three-story elevator to move easily from floor to floor.
The Riley Home, Plantation Pointe
This newly renovated 5,000-square-foot French chateau-style home is light, bright — and has a few secrets. See if you can find the concealed walk-in pantry and TV “closet” in the beautifully paneled kitchen; or the secret passageway from the second-floor media room to the upstairs guest rooms. Don’t miss the oversized panel doors with curved details; the luxurious master bath with a “rain” shower (and three shower heads); and the huge master closet with floor-to-ceiling shoe racks. And once you see the cozy sitting room with fireplace, you may never want to leave.
The Skelley Home, N. Ocean Boulevard
Of course you’ll notice the ocean views from nearly every room of this spacious (5,800 square foot) home; the inviting infinity pool on the oceanfront terrace; the soaring 10-foot ceilings; and the generous use of marble (including the exotic Calacatta Gold marble used in the kitchen). Take a long, lingering look at the wide-plank, oil-rubbed hickory floors; the glass-and-bronze stair railings and dark-stained hickory ceiling beams; the kitchen’s quartz countertops and commercial-grade appliances; the oyster-shell ceiling in the master suite; the self-irrigating planters; and the home’s many elegant European fixtures. Don’t miss the petite dining-room chandelier whose crystal panes shine like prisms.
The Thompson Home, Grande Dunes
This 4,000-square-foot Tuscan-style home features three luxurious bedrooms, three and a half baths – and an aptly named “Club Room” complete with pool table, plush velvet curtains, leather seating, faux-alligator wall covering and a full-sized bar. Note the clever mirrored, arched hallway niches that visually expand the space, the elegant floor tiles and fireplace surrounds. Corner sliding doors disappear into the walls as they open from the family room to the inviting, fully-screened pool/patio area, bringing the outdoor experience inside.
The Warren Home, N. Ocean Boulevard
This modestly-sized and recently remodeled home has history as well as charm: it was the former home of a prominent Myrtle Beach physician who had his office in a lower-level suite. The owners transformed original low ceilings to a soaring two-story atrium-like space in the living room with high, airy windows, custom-carved, white wood paneling, a dramatic black-painted brick fireplace and a partial rock wall. Check out the master suite’s custom-built wardrobe doors, a slide-away glass pocket door closing off the bathroom and the variable-size-tile shower. The back deck features a full-size sofa swing on ropes, the perfect place to spend a sunny afternoon.
