About the Property

4BR 3BA Old Family Creek Home

Escape the fast-paced demands of life and find tranquility amid the breathtaking views and salty air this water-front, peaceful creek home offers. Built in the 1950s and having survived Hurricane Hugo and Hazel, Tranquility embodies the ‘creek house’ feel with the view and history to accompany it.

For sixty plus years, generations of our family have built memories from this home playing in the pluff mud, water-skiing, shrimping, and fishing the inlet waters. Gathering under the moonlight on the dock to tell inlet ghost stories of the Gray Man and Alice Flagg has been a favorite past time as the original home of Alice, “The Hermitage,” was just across the water. Tranquility will feed that inner nostalgia for a simpler, beautiful way of life.

Located in the heart of Murrells Inlet on deep water (dredged 05/2017), the covered dock opens to a large floating dock with a ladder for swimming and boat cleats for tie-up. The house features central H/VAC, cable TV, wireless internet, living room/dining room combination, washer/dryer, dishwasher, electric stove, microwave, outdoor Walton Style Dining Table, Grill, Hammock and enclosed outdoor shower. Within the upstairs are three bedrooms. The king bedroom has its own full bathroom and faces creek-side. The two bedrooms with two double beds each are connected by a bathroom. A screened in porch is both on the creek side of the house and the parking side. One large screened in porch includes two dining tables off of the kitchen. The other screened-in porch has comfortable sitting for enjoying a sunrise, reading a book, or drinking your morning coffee. Off of the carport downstairs is a secluded bedroom with a queen bed and full bathroom. A laundry room with a washer, dryer and overflow refrigerator is also off of the carport. Room for parking is plentiful with the ability to fit more than a dozen cars. This house is ideal for enjoying the activities, serenity, view, salty breeze, and much more that Murrells Inlet offers!

Bedding consists of 1 King, 1 queen, 4 Double beds, 1 sleeper Sofa in Living Room
Bathrooms*: 3 full bathrooms. 2 with bath/shower combination and 1 with shower only. *Outdoor shower off of carport.

We live only a couple of miles from Tranquility and look forward to sharing our families home with you.
