MYRTLE BEACH — Tours started Friday on a house in Grande Dunes that is part of the Southern Living builder program, the first of the magazine’s showcase homes in Myrtle Beach, officials said.
The four-bedroom, three-bathroom house is at 7464 Catena Lane in the Seville community of Grande Dunes. Tours are $5 a person, with the proceeds going to two local charities: Hope House of Myrtle Beach and Coastal Animal Rescue, according to Marketing Strategies.
Tours, which continue through Sept. 23, will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Sundays. A holiday tour is scheduled for Nov. 2-18.
Classic, which built the house and is a member of the Southern Living Custom Building program for more than five years, is among 100 builders chosen for the 19th annual builder program, which is a network of custom homebuilders in the South.
Southern Living selected the “homebuilders because of their commitment to great architecture, and building homes in their communities that families love from generation to generation,” according to the magazine’s website.
Southern Living reviews the homes builders have built for their customers, looking for craftsmanship, excellence in architecture and home building that tells a Southern story, the website stated. Each member is reviewed based on his or her reputation among local building trade and consumers, strength in the marketplace, financial stability and customer service.
Classic has built more than 800 homes in the Carolinas and its founders have more than 50 years of experience in the building business. This is its 149th custom home in the Grande Dunes community.
