Antigua is a small but lavish community of luxury homes just off 82nd Parkway and about a block from Grand Strand Hospital. Though not gated, it has a private entrance and is posted for residents only. With landscaped streets and lush yards, these homes are a local's secret indeed. This community was developed to remind one of Antigua, (pronounced An-tee'ga) located in the middle of the Leeward Islands in the Eastern Caribbean,
The custom homes are two and three bedroom patio homes, from 1400 to 2100 sq ft, and prices from just under $200,000 to the mid $300's. Built in the 80's, many are extravagant showpieces, with indoor and outdoor fireplaces, jacuzzis, and so many windows that some are like living in an indoor/outdoor environment. Some even have pools in the backyard.
A private courtyard with enclosed garden sits in the middle of the homes, and most have sliding doors that open out into it. The atrium has a tumbled-marble glass roof with a fountain that allows tropical plants to thrive in the enclosed temperature controlled environment. 1,750 square feet of imported Italian tiles form the garden floor with underground drainage. There are 5 garden fountains, and a hot spring spa surrounded by tropical foliage and ivy.
If there are children in this community, they will attend Myrtle Beach Primary School, Myrtle Beach Middle School, and Myrtle Beach High School. It's perfect for a couple, a family, or a beautiful retirement home. Call us to tour the available patio homes in Antigua.
