Carillon at Tuscany
4073 Belle Terre Blvd., Myrtle Beach, South Carolina 29579
Inviting, Gated 55+ Neighborhood Known as Carillon at Tuscany Boasts Single Family Homes, Fishing Lakes, Tennis Courts and Walking Trails
DR Horton began construction on Carillion at Tuscany in 2012. It is a gated, 55+ neighborhood within the larger all ages development of Tuscany and offers its residents privacy and sanctuary.
At build-out, Carillon will have 85 two and three bedroom single level, single family homes. The eight open floor plans range from 1,460 square feet to 2,747 square feet and include an office, a garage, bay windows, granite counter tops, cherry cabinets, a gas fireplace, and a screened porch. DR Horton's largest model features a loft for arts and crafts or TV viewing. Exteriors have vinyl siding, a pitched roof, an attached two car garage and a recessed entry or covered porch.
Prices start in the low-$200,000s. Please verify this with a Realtor as it may change over time. Monthly HOA fees pay for some lawn maintenance, weekly trash service, and a year of termite protection.
Carillon's 8,000 square foot clubhouse has a swimming pool, sundecks, a game room, a little movie theater, a fitness facility, and two tennis courts. Plans are underway for another pool and a lazy river. Walking trails meander through the wider community and the 60 acres set aside for conservation. More than 40 acres of lake are open for fishing.
There is no shortage of dining, shopping, and golfing in the area. Myrtle Beach has a new boardwalk with a sky wheel. Its state park has almost a mile of Grand Strand beach, and entertainment venues include the Carolina Opry and a speedway. The satellite campus of the Coastal Carolina University offers adult classes through the Osher Life Long Learning Institute.
Grand Strand Regional Medical Center is accredited by the Joint Commission.
This area has summer high temperatures in the 80s and 90s, and winter temperatures in the 30s, 40s and 50s. On average, the area receives 49 inches of rain each year.

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.

55+ Communities and Single People
It often seems as though 55+ communities are full of happily married people. This is not always the case, though, as the demographic fact is that women often outlive their spouses. It is true that newer developments draw couples because newer developments tend to draw younger retirees. This is simply because older communities have residents who moved in longer ago. Older developments have more singles, particularly women, because the residents are often older. As to where to find single men, that is out of our area of expertise.
