"End of the Road," that is literally the mailing address destination!
This home captivates from the moment you enter the antique brick columns and wrought iron gates. That is what the brochure for this home says.
I say, JAW DROPPING!
How big is it? BIG. VERY BIG! Big enough that the entire second floor encompasses the master suite.
All things considered, THIS home is the score of Georgetown County! The 4 bedroom, 4.5 bathroom home with a guest house and pool is 8400 square feet. Talk about being the QUEEN of your castle!
I know, there are other luxury homes along the Grand Strand that are beach homes with ocean views. And don't get me wrong, I love them too. But there is something "Charlestonian" about the charm and sheer vastness of this property, elegant and shabby all at the same time that makes it a head and shoulders above the rest that I have seen in my travels over the past few years.
The home was once part of Waverly Plantation, which dates to a late 1700s grant from the King of England. The historic setting has been preserved and is showcased with century old live oaks and cypress trees, southern plantings and heritage foliage along with an abundance of wildlife! According to South-Carolina-Plantations.com, the origin of the name was probably fashioned after Sir Walter Scott's romantic "Waverly" novels.
The 8400 square foot original home was built in 1985. Renovation to the original house along with new construction began on this lovely 3-acre estate in 2001.
Most rooms feature expansive windows with all-encompassing views of the Waccamaw River - Intracoastal Waterway that will stun you and take your breath away! This home is perfect for the boat owner that travels the Intracoastal Waterway annually. The water at low tide is 12 feet making it perfect for any Yacht requiring at least a 3 foot draw. Heading South on the Intracoastal, take a left into what is essentially your own water driveway and "park" at your own dock!

Formal and casual living and dining areas, kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances, soap stone counter tops with center island, antique heart of pine floors and un-gauged slate floors, antique brick fireplace and alabaster chandelier and lighting are just a few of the special features. Everything is special. And if you could imagine for a moment, the OUTDOOR living amenities are generous as well.
The master suite is adjacent to a beautiful spa bath and a private balcony captures the layered views of the historic "Ricefields" and creeks that lead to the Intra-Coastal Waterway/Waccamaw River.
(NOTE: I highly recommend a tour of the Rice Museum in Georgetown and a pontoon boat ride from Brookgreen Gardens to fully appreciate and comprehend the history this home sits upon. )
The scenic outdoor living space has been the setting of many delightful hours of entertaining with generous porches, decks, beautiful over-sized brick terraces, outdoor fireplace and amazing sunsets!
A private guest house that epitomizes Southern hospitality is complete with kitchen, sitting and sleeping area overlooking a lovely pool and hot tub inviting you to relax and soak in the magnificent vistas. Not only will you be riveted watching the boats traveling the waterway, it's a bird sanctuary! The unusual birds and incredible sunsets ... you'll never want to leave.
A Private tour of this one of a kind estate is by appointment only. This spectacular home is located in Seaside Pawleys Island, South Carolina. That is just over an hour north of historic Charleston. Myrtle Beach International Airport is about 30 minutes away. Georgetown Airport is nearby for private pilots as well.
