Nestled in a private enclave near the ocean and beyond the wrought iron double entry gate sits a rare Myrtle Beach historic Circa 1926 luxury home. Adjacent to Pine Lakes Country Club, originally Ocean Forest Country Club and listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this home is designed for entertaining. Exquisitely detailed, turn-key home is the work of famous architect Raymond Hood, known for his design of Rockefeller Center and award-winning Chicago Tribune Building. In classic Spanish Colonial style, the home is clad in a terra-cotta and copper roof, front courtyard, circular driveway, wooden doors, gas lanterns, arched windows and doorways, exposed wood beams, original terra-cotta tile and original cast iron tub. This masterpiece features 4500 SF of living space, 3 bedrooms, 3 full baths, 3 half baths, a greeting hall, spacious dining and living rooms, a billiard room/study, and even a telephone room. There are three gas fireplaces inside and one outdoor wood-burning fireplace. The billiard room/study features a gas fireplace, custom-built bookshelves, tooled leather door panels, and coffered ceilings. The chef's kitchen boasts a commercial gas range and griddle, 2 ovens, warming drawer, sub-zero refrigerator, wine cooler, 2 sinks, walk-in pantry, butler's pantry, butcher block center island, pull-out drawers, glass panel cabinet doors with interior lighting, and a breakfast area with outdoor access. Pocket doors usher you from the kitchen into the dining room featuring a gas fireplace and a wall of arched 9 foot French doors leading to the loggia and courtyard. Spacious covered outdoor living area features a custom gas grill and wood burning fireplace. Beyond the brick courtyard fountain, an English garden of Japanese boxwoods, roses, camellias, and over two hundred bulbs is surrounded by decorative fencing and a brick wall to provide a private sanctuary. The master suite features updated, separate HERS and HIS Baths with custom cabinetry, tile shower, soaking tub, elegant marble flooring and a private courtyard with a fountain. In 1996, thoughtful renovations and upgrades to preserve the historic value yet add functionality were completed. Reclaimed architectural features include dining room columns and double doors leading into the study. There is also a home buyer's warranty for service after the sale. From executives of the 1920's sitting around the hearth at 5517 Woodside Avenue to the New York magazine editors who founded Sports Illustrated in 1954 at "The Granddaddy," Pine Lakes Country Club, the history is endless. This is a rare opportunity to own an iconic and historic home with privacy situated along the prestigious Pine Lakes Country Club Golf Course and a short golf cart ride to the ocean in Myrtle Beach. Furnishings can also be purchased.
