Wild Wing Plantation
1000 Wild Wing Blvd, Conway, South Carolina 29526
Not Far From Myrtle Beach, Wild Wing Plantation Has Attractive Single Family Homes, Golf Courses, Lakes, an Owners' Club and Markets to Baby Boomers
Originally designed as a golf resort with four courses, Wild Wing Plantation is in Conway, a town along the Waccamaw River outside of Myrtle Beach. It is a lovely community open to all ages but markets itself to empty nesters and baby boomers.
At build-out, the community should have 1,100 single family homes with three to five bedrooms and two to four baths. Many properties have lake or golf course views, an attached two or three car garage often at a 90 degree angle to the house, a kitchen with a breakfast nook, a separate formal dining room, a screened porch, stainless steel appliances and hardwood flooring. Traditional architectural styles incorporate Craftsman, Cottage and Cape Cod elements, with exteriors that feature vinyl and/or brick. Many homes have a single level. The Custom Home Program allows qualified buyers to pick their own builder and building timeframe.
Prices start in the high-$200,000s. Please verify these prices with a Realtor as they are bound to change over time.
Wild Wing has 180 acres of lakes and 14 miles of shoreline. Day docks, a boat ramp, and onsite boat storage are available. The golf courses have a pro shop, a restaurant, a pub, a driving range, and a chipping green. The Wild Wing Lakes Owners' Club includes a fitness center, tennis courts, basketball court, a three-pool swim complex, splash zone, and water slide.

Francisco de Gordillo explored the present-day South Carolina coast during 1521 but was unable to establish a town. The French also failed to colonize in 1562. The English settled here in 1670, but they moved on to Charleston when the conditions worsened. The two Carolinas split officially in 1729. The state was the first to leave the Union during the Civil War.
South Carolina was once primarily agricultural and still grows peanuts, watermelons, peaches and tobacco. Today, though, it is mostly known for its textile mills. Wood products, asbestos, steel, pulp and chemicals are particularly important. A commercial tea plantation, and the only one in America, lies on an island 20 miles South of Charleston.
Top attractions include Fort Sumter, which is a national monument, the aircraft carrier USS Yorktown, the Cypress Gardens (located in Charleston), Hilton Head resorts, the Cowpens National Battlefield, the Botanical Gardens and the Riverbanks Zoo.

Designed for Aging
Many new retirement developments are being "designed for aging." What does this mean? While baby boomers have every intention of staying active during their retirement years, living with design elements that make one's living space more accommodating is also a good idea. In homes designed for aging, the home has just one story. The path from the master bedroom to the bathroom is short, well-defined and well-lit. Door handles are levers instead of knobs. All thresholds are flush. Toilets are a few inches higher. Bathroom floors are made from a no-slip material. In a well-designed home, these are just a few of the features specifically incorporated for aging bodies.
