This is locally called a “channel home” located in the Cherry Grove section of North Myrtle Beach. You’ll find a discussion about the need for dredging of channels at THIS LINK. Some of these channels are navigable at high tide. This channel is not. Access is all overgrown by the marsh. Nonetheless, it still is a salt-water tidal channel (rises/lowers with the tide) and you can fish in this channel.
Cherry Grove is a popular tourist section. Many of these channel homes are rented weekly. This property was built in 1979 and appears cosmetically dated. For some, it may be the perfect, laid-back fishing/beach house.
We found six channel-home sales. Like the subject, the one on 29th and the one on Nixon are not navigable. The others are likely navigable at high tide.
At $239,000, this is not a “steal”, but clearly it’s below the average price and currently in MLS, the next lowest priced channel home is priced at $289,900. If you wanted a channel home and didn’t mind a fixer-upper, this is probably worth considering.
