Moss Estates Neighbors News
Moss Estates of Myrtle Beach, South Carolina 29588 is a beautiful community of 54 homes and properties, located southwest of Myrtle Beach in the Burgess community, west of Route 17 Bypass and off of Route 707, between Socastee and Surfside in the County of Horry. The Intracoastal Waterway is west of us and the Atlantic Ocean is east.
We are proud of our scenic neighborhood of half-acre or greater sized home sites, some adjacent to protected state wetlands woodlands. Our storm water management ponds, while maintained, are very naturalistic. Our ponds are home to a variety of wildlife, such as blue heron, snowy egrets, turtles, sun fish, blue gill, catfish, mallard ducks, and even a junior alligator nicknamed "George." [Update: While Gator George has not been seen since Spring 2013, Son of George was spotted last summer.] Migrating swan visit each spring and fall. The woods abound with both deciduous and evergreen trees and shrubs, including Carolina pines, water and live oak, star gum, wax myrtle, red bay, jessamine - Carolina jasmine, and wild magnolia.
Beaches, shopping centers, the Socastee post office and the Socastee Library are all a quick drive. There are public boat docks to the Intracoastal Waterway nearby. There is major county government office center and brand new South Strand Recreation Center nearby on Scipio Lane, off Holmestown Rd.We are in the Saint James School District - GO SHARKS!
