Nestled among the winding channels and marshes of the Intercoastal Waterway lies one of the most sought-after neighborhoods in Murrells Inlet—Prince Creek. The coveted neighborhood boasts resort-style living through its multiple amenities, and its convenient location just four miles from the beach and twenty minutes from the airport. This 2,700-acre neighborhood is home to the Dustin Johnson Golf School, the Tournament Players Club, Prince Creek Village Center, and several communities within Prince Creek.
PRINCE CREEK’S HISTORY
Construction on The Bays of Prince Creek began in 2003 with the first home reaching completion in 2004. Today, there are over 700 homes built across the seven sub-communities. Prince Creek utilizes a unique conglomeration of builders throughout the sub-communities, both mainstream and local. Some of the nation’s top builders (such as D.R. Horton, Lennar, and Pulte) have all constructed houses within Prince Creek’s beautiful communities. With a growing population and an ever-evolving seller’s market, the houses in Prince Creek have experienced a 20 percent increase in sales prices over the past 16 years. In 2004 Prince Creek’s homes in the Bays fetched $120 per square foot; now, the homes fetch a whopping $148 per square foot, with experts expecting that price to continue its upward incline.
