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.
