August 08, 2013, 8:00 am -- /EPR NETWORK/ -- The Windy Hill "TreeHouse" in North Myrtle Beach, SC is for sale
Welcome to paradise in exciting and vibrant North Myrtle Beach, SC. Only 500 feet from the ocean, the original Windy Hill Tree House is up for sale . No need for flood insurance with this 4 bedroom/2 bath house which sits high on the sand dunes on 5 lots. The home takes up roughly 2 lots and there are 2, possibly 3 buildable lots in addition to the home. You also have the option of reducing the size of the house by removing the decks that surround the house or removing the home. This home was featured in Sandlapper magazine for its careful and detailed construction. The home melts into the natural environment giving you the feeling of living in the mountains at the Carolina coast. Wide expanses of glass and skylights enhance the feeling of living in nature. This 4 bedroom, 2 bath home has an open layout, high ceilings in the great room and kitchen, and includes everything you need including a newly designed kitchen with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances with a thermodor gas/electric oven, Bosch dishwasher, Amana refrigerator, and new Asian inspired cabinets. Look down and you will see 200 year old pine heart wood floors from a historic church in Beaufort, SC. The ancient pine is visible in the beams of the lofted ceiling and the panels of the mantle piece that go straight up to the new skylights. Each room is drenched in natural light with lots of new Andersen windows and the master bath includes a whirlpool jetted tub, double sinks, and stone/wood walls. The stone walls in the bathroom as well as the stone wall up the exquisite driveway, lit with tasteful lights at night, are Green River stone from Asheville, NC. New decking wraps around the house and includes large live oaks sprouting out making you feel like you're in a nature preserve in the middle of N. Myrtle Beach. Outside every window you can see abundant wildlife. The original builders/owners wanted their home to blend into the natural environment and offer peace and seclusion. They accomplished that goal. The outside of the house is now wooden cedar shingles which really blend into the natural surroundings.
Old timers say this is where the original Windy Hill is located. It sits up high on the Dunes and that's why many say it's like living in a dreamy treehouse on a Hill. The owners kept the original trees on the land and imported the beautiful pine wood floors and Chestnut beam ceilings. The wood is so rare that it is no longer available.
If it's a feeling of privacy and seclusion you want along with a great place for entertaining and enjoying family and friends, you've found it. Photos don't do this beach home justice. Take a look and you will fall in love.
