One of the best kept secrets on the south Strand is the exclusive neighborhood of Mt. Gilead. Nestled within the center of Murrell's Inlet, this distinctive community offers fine older homes and estates, many of which are channel-front with private docks. With mature tree-lined private streets and flowers in bloom everywhere, it is easy to tell the residents here are are a close-knit group and proud of their beautiful old plantation homes. Yet all these homes are surprisingly affordable!
The most expensive homes along the inlet are on the street known as Creekside, and in the much sought-after neighborhood of Mt Gilead Place. Many of these are 5-6 bedrooms, 2-3 stories, with huge manicured yards and access to a created channel at their private back door docks. One look at some of these breathtaking luxury homes will stop you from looking anywhere else for your dreams.
The channels offer access to Murrells Inlet or the Atlantic ocean, for water sports, kayaking, sailing, or deep sea fishing adventures. Other extras many of these homes offer are fireplaces, pools, and even elevators. The most unbelievable part of it all is that they run well under a million in price, averaging around $600-800,000. You won't find another waterfront home for that price.
Less expensive, but just as beautiful in their own way, are the smaller homes not on the water...along Mt Gilead Rd and in another neighborhood known as Mt Gilead Trace. These smaller homes range from 3-4 bedrooms, and in the price range of the upper $200's to $500,000. Each house is unique and exceptionally well maintained, with gardens and blooming foliage all along the way. The perfect place to raise a family or spend a quiet retirement without the snow and cold weather found further north.
Murrells Inlet is just a short drive down the road with some of the finest seafood restaurants in the entire south, as well as the romantic Marsh Walk, offering live music, entertainment for the kids, and local crafters displaying handmade treasures, baskets, and shell creations. Summer nights in Murrells Inlet are always exciting and fun.
Whether you're looking for a waterfront luxury home or a quiet and beautiful neighborhood, Mt. Gilead is a treasure that you don't want to miss. Ask us to take you on a tour and be prepared to fall in love.
