In Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, one quaint community with 152 charming single-family homes stands above the rest. At Meadows of St. Patrick, residents enjoy a prime location with many nearby attractions. Though the community provides the atmosphere of a quaint coastal town, it is located just down the coast from the popular Myrtle Beach area.
Meadows of St. Patrick Lifestyle
As an active lifestyle community, Meadows of St. Patrick is open to residents of all ages, but its ideal location, tranquil setting, and beautiful homes appeal to most active adults. Unlike the area’s other active adult communities, Meadows of St. Patrick does not include a community amenity center or scheduled social activities. This means that the community has very low monthly homeowners association fees, making it a great alternative for those who value affordable living over community amenities. Of course, the lack of central on-site amenities does not keep residents from pursuing healthy active lifestyles.
Golf enthusiasts will have their pick of the area’s many beautiful and challenging public golf courses. Those who enjoy the water can easily participate in fun coastal activities such as boating and fishing, or even going on a dolphin-sighting tour. Nearby Huntington Beach State Park, with hiking trails, marshland and an undeveloped beach, is an ideal spot for nature lovers. Murrells Inlet is also known for its fabulous dining, particularly for its fresh seafood. Locals and visitors alike enjoy dining at Restaurant Row on Main Street. This popular area includes award-winning restaurants, as well as casual and chain restaurants.
Meadows of St. Patrick Homes & Real Estate
Aside from its prime location, Meadows of St. Patrick also offers home customizations far beyond what is available on most production homes. According to Pat Shine, a local South Carolina real estate professional, the community stands out for its design diversity. It does not offer the same “cookie cutter” homes that some communities provide. Each of the 152 resale homes demonstrates the variety of design features meant to suit the needs of many active adults. Homebuyers who want to live in Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, will want to look at the homes for sale at Meadows of St. Patrick.
“Flagship Construction, who is the builder for St. Patrick, builds a customized home at an affordable price,” says Shine. “If you want to make changes they sit down and listen. They want your home to be exactly as you imagined it would be. They will take out walls in the kitchen, change tubs out for showers, turn the screened in porch into a ‘Carolina room’ whatever it takes to make the buying process a pleasant experience.”
For relocating retirees, South Carolina is one of the country's more popular retirement destinations. By settling in Meadows at St. Patrick, retirees on a fixed income can buy a beautiful semi-custom home, without paying the high monthly fees found at larger resort-style communities. There may not be central on-site amenities, but there is plenty to do just outside of the community.
