The Pawley House
442 Myrtle Avenue – Historic District
Pawleys Island, SC
Don’t miss the extremely rare opportunity to own a true Pawleys Island icon, The Pawley House . Steeped in history, as far back as pre 1800’s, and considered to be one of the first, if not the first, summer residences on Pawleys Island- this home still reflects its true historic charm and character. The dining and living rooms remain authentic to the original structure, along with the porches, stair well and upper bedrooms. The home was moved from the mainland, and barged across the creek, under the direction and supervision of homeowner, former SC Governor, Joseph Blythe Alston. Section by section, and each board numbered, and carefully placed on the land that was once owned by former SC Governor R.F.W. Alston, to once again be rebuilt.
In 1988 the homeowner began rennovations and updates to bring the home into the modern century, yet protecting the history and character of days gone by. You’ll notice the wide wooden plank beams and floors, antique brick and mortar fireplaces with original mantles, museum quality hand feathered faux painted doors, worn stair treds along with well used handrails, and the expansive wraparound porches – all will take you back to the cherished Pawleys Island of the past.
Modern conveniences have been added, such as, private en-suite baths in the 6 bedrooms, central heating and air, updated kitchen with large island for entertaining, a creekside screen porch for outside dining and an elevator to the main floor. Oceanside of the house you’ll discover an elevated walkway through the twisted oaks and maritime forest, providing a rare glimpse of the original and native to the Island landscape. The beachside Necessary is screened, with expansive views of the spacious mid-island area of the beach, and provides a protected gathering room, along with shower and restroom facilities. On the creek dock you’ll enjoy beautiful sunsets, a crabbing and fishing dock, along with a perfect place to launch your kayak or paddle board.
This property offers .88 acres of oceanfront high ground and 1.56 acres of marsh front land. All measurements are approximate, not guaranteed. Buyer is responsible for verification.
