Brighton Lakes of Carolina Forest Homes for Sale
Brighton Lakes Myrtle Beach
Welcome to Brighton Lakes at Carolina Forest, an exclusive, gated community in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, just minutes away from the area’s spectacular beaches, the scenic Intracoastal Waterway, and the area’s famous Grand Strand.
The Grand Strand is the common name given to a more than 60-mile stretch of primarily beach land that not only features stunning scenery and glorious real estate, but also features more than 120 beautiful and formidable golf courses, and a seemingly infinite supply of shopping, dining, and entertainment venues.
Boasting a warm and cozy, subtropical climate, enormous stretches of golden beaches, and a relatively modest population of 27,109, Myrtle Beach is the lively heart of the Grand Strand. The city plays host to about 17 million visitors annually.
Carolina Forest, it could be argued, is the lively heart of Myrtle Beach. A highly desirable enclave made up of peaceful, serene residential neighborhood communities, like Brighton Lakes, it offers master-planned living that’s genuinely second to none. This neighborhood is located near the communities of Plantation Lakes, Summerlyn, Covington Lake, and Waterford Plantation in Carolina Forest.
Here in this officially unincorporated municipality, residents have their K-12 public education needs provided by the Horry County Schools, which are conveniently located near endless sandy beaches, the historic town of Conway, and about 12 picturesque miles inland from downtown Myrtle Beach.
