Briarcliffe Acres is a premier location for homes in the Myrtle Beach area. One of the first subdivisions developed on the north side of Myrtle Beach, most lots are well over an acre, and each home is unique and elegant. With gentle curving drives, original old-growth forest, and natural landscaping, Briarcliffe Acres is reminiscent of the beauty of the old South.
Incorporated as an independent township, Briarcliffe Acres has its own mayor and police force – and its residents happily enjoy the relaxing sense of community. A gated entry to the beach, along with a private beach cabana and walkway over the lovely marsh area, provides appropriate privacy and breathtaking views.
Nearby to Briarcliffe Acres are several other well-established communities, each offering large lots and beautifully well-maintained mature landscaping. These include Briarwood and The Forest at Briarcliffe, both of which are positioned on the Intracoastal Waterway, and a condominium community known as Briarcliffe West.
This particular part of Myrtle Beach has the remote feel of a lush, wooded area; but in fact, there is ample shopping and entertainment nearby. Located just a mile to the south are the Colonial Mall, Tanger Outlet Center, and a Super Wal-Mart; while to the north is Barefoot Landing. Barefoot Landing offers countless dining options and entertainment venues, including favorites the House of Blues and the Alabama Theater, right on the Intracoastal Waterway. A favorite attraction is the “Barefoot Princess” boat tours which leave regularly from the docks.
Murrells Inlet Just to the north of Pawleys Island is the quiet fishing village of Murrells Inlet. Known for its great seafood and restaurants along the marsh walk, the village has about 6000 residents who call it home. With close proximity to Myrtle Beach, Conway and Georgetown, you are right in the middle of all the excitement. Convenient day trips include Charleston to the south, Wilmington to the north and Florence to the west.
North Myrtle Beach
North Myrtle Beach is home to Vanna White, and the birth place of South Carolina’s state dance, the shag. Locals are keen to teach newcomers the intricate footwork at Fat Harold’s on Main Street.
The city consists of four sections from north to south: Cherry Grove, Ocean Drive, Crescent Beach, and Windy Hill. In 1968, these formerly separate municipalities were combined into the single town of North Myrtle Beach, with Atlantic Beach choosing to remain independent. Not content to stay in the shadow of its neighbor to the south, North Myrtle Beach has spent heavily to attract more business and tourism over the last 10 years, and the city’s population has almost doubled as a result. The wide-open beaches and pristine marshes of Cherry Grove make North Myrtle Beach a favorite of visitors and locals.
