I am strongly considering moving a former "beach house" onto my property in Holden Beach. Has anyone done this, or know of others who have? Also, I understand that prices there have flattened out for property. Since I am a part-time resident, keeping up with this isn't always easy. Does anyone know about this?

Default Have moved 2 houses

My husband and I have moved 2 houses. One from the oceanfront and another from second row. We used Milligan Movers. You have to go before the town (Planning and Zoning committee, I think) to get permission and you need a permit from the town. It was a little tedious, because there were a lot of homes being moved at the time, but well worth it in the end.

If you are thinking of moving a home from island to the mainland, keep in mind that the home can not be more than 14 feet high. There have been a lot of neat old beach houses to move over the bridge to what we call the "house graveyard" on hwy 17.

It takes a lot to renovate an old house, but it is nice to save a little piece of history. We live permanently in the second house we moved and are very happy with it.
