A classic-look beach house with cozy rooms for all the kids, this property has been completely refurbished over the past couple of years with new windows, doors, walls and paint. Even the old floors were replaced with hardwood and tile.
Outside, there's a nice deck with ocean views. The house is built on pilings to minimize flood damage during storm surges; the rest of the time, the space is used for parking. The ocean side faces south and is flooded with light. A brand new central air conditioning system keeps the house comfortable even during the dog days of summer.
Holden Beach is a barrier island separated from the mainland by the Intracoastal Waterway, the 3,000-mile long, mostly protected route for cargo ships and pleasure boats alike. Boating is big here and you're never more than three blocks from waterway or ocean when you're on the island.For further information: Century 21 Anne Arnold
