Luxe Living: Pawleys Island Style
“Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise, it’s not luxury.” ~ Coco Chanel
Coco would have loved this traditional “Pawleys Island Style” beach house at DeBordieu because it’s about as comfortable as you can get, yet it’s very close to luxurious fine dining, private championship golf, and miles of spectacular beaches.
Located about an hour north of Charleston, South Carolina, Pawleys Island is one of the oldest summer resorts on the East Coast. In the Early 1700s, families of rice planters who owned plantations on the rivers nearby would come to Pawleys Island to escape the heat, mosquitoes and malaria. The seashore was considered much healthier, and much more comfortable. Each year they would come in May, and stay until about November.
Twelve of those original Pawleys Island residences still remain in the historic district where people still come to enjoy a care-free, laid-back lifestyle. Homes and cottages have been built since then in the same casual, comfortable style that is perfect for family gatherings. The term, “Arrogantly Shabby” has been coined to refer to those great older homes and cottages and some of the newer residences that mimic their casual design.
Walk this way: experience the beach at your fingertips
Just a couple miles south of Pawleys, this DeBordieu beach home located at 20 Sea Biscuit Court, it has that same, rustic, comfortable “Pawleys Island Style” that promotes good times with family and friends. Whether you choose to walk the 6 ½ miles of secluded beach, fish in the creeks of pristine North Inlet, or play a round of golf on DeBordieu’s Championship Pete Dye Golf Course, having a comfortable home to return to will certainly enhance your experience.
Boasting 6 bedrooms, 8 baths, and 5400 heated square feet, its located on a huge corner lot on a quiet cul-de-sac. You can watch the sunrise over the ocean from the wraparound screen porch, or the sun deck . While it’s not directly on the ocean front, it is right next to the beach access path providing quick and easy access to DeBordieu’s 6 ½ miles of beach. The drive through garage offers an opportunity to easily store and access your boat for a day in the creek. Other features of the home include: Heart Pine Floors, 2 Living Rooms, Formal Dining Room, Breakfast Room, wet bar with ice maker, 3 water heaters, 2 heat pumps, 2 fireplaces, 2 ovens, 2 outdoor showers, Jacuzzi Tub, Steam Shower, cedar lined closets, abundant storage and plenty of parking.
At the asking price of $1,398,200, 20 Sea Biscuit is one of DeBordieu’s best values, and would be an excellent addition to the DeBordieu Rental Program. Coco Channel would have loved it!
