                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: I grew up with a family beach house at Edisto Beach, SC. Love the Carolina coast. Holden Beach is not at all like Myrtle Beach. We built this house and incorporated improvements on the design of our other very nice house, Hold-on-Beach, 177730. We love the East-End of Holden Beach so much, we are now on our third house in the neighborhood. Designed and built Pelican Watch for long-term enjoyment and eventual retirement. Heated pool really extends pleasure to almost 9 months.

                      Why the Owner Chose Holden Beach:
                      Special design and open space, visually from glassed back deck to stunning ocean views from both living levels. Elevator serves top floor (main living level) from parking level. Inverted floor-plan. Private heated (optional) pool id open from March to Thanksgiving.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Pelican Watch is in very lightly developed area of east end of Holden Beach.
