Active adults who are looking for a beautiful home near Myrtle Beach, one that's set back a little bit from the hustle and bustle, will want to consider Lakeside Crossing in Conway. This 55+ gated community offers a carefree lifestyle along with luxurious amenities and easy access to great golf courses, white sand beaches and plenty of recreational opportunities.
Lakeside Crossing was opened in 2005 by developer Sobel Co., which plans 692 land-lease homes upon completion. Homebuyers can choose from four single-family models that include modern kitchens and open floor plans ranging from 1,397 to 1,907 square feet.
Options include a private bath off the master bedroom and a front porch. All floor plans have at least two bedrooms and two bathrooms, in addition to an attached garage. Currently, homes are available on both a new and resale basis. An annual homeowners' association fee covers lawn care and maintenance of common areas.
And those low-maintenance benefits mean residents have more time for personal interests and hobbies, as well as the community's many activities on offer. Lakeside Crossing's well-appointed clubhouse features multipurpose and game rooms, a library, business center, catering kitchen, and ballroom. Residents can also gather at the on-site pub to socialize or play pool.
A separate fitness complex supports an active lifestyle with an indoor heated pool that's open year-round, plus an aerobics studio and state-of-the-art exercise equipment. Additional features include a locker room and a massage therapy room.
Outdoor amenities are perfect for staying fit in South Carolina's beautiful coastal weather. There are two tennis courts and three shuffleboard courts, along with hiking and biking paths that run past scenic lakes and ponds, some of which are stocked with fish.
Conway is a town of about 16,000 that's just east of Myrtle Beach. Residents can shop for necessities in town or pick up fresh produce and local wines, honey and other treats at a farmers' market open May through October. A scenic river walk downtown leads from the business district to the Waccamaw River, where a local outfitter offers guided kayak tours for beginning and expert paddlers alike.
From this quiet neighborhood, it's just a short drive to South Carolina's coast and an almost endless array of attractions. Myrtle Beach is known for some of the best golf courses in the state, including Myrtle Beach National and Wild Wing Plantation, both of which offer creative course layouts and accommodate all skill levels. Residents will also find world-class restaurants, shopping, and water recreation in Myrtle Beach and elsewhere along the Grand Strand, all within easy reach.
Worry-free maintenance, a resort-style environment, charming homes, and a coastal location all combine to provide adults aged 55 and older with an easygoing and active lifestyle at Lakeside Crossing.
