The Story: Located in Huntington Beach State Park in Murrell's Inlet, S.C., this unique home was designed and buiild by Archer M. Huntington in 1931. His wife, Anna Hyatt Hunt, had developed TB, and the vast property was on the ocean beach. They only spent winters here. The design is Spanish and Moorish, with lots of bricks, huge rooms, and outdoor courtyards. It has 30 rooms, laid out on 3 sides of a courtyard. In the center is a 40 foot water tower. Outside, an animal enclosure housed bears, horses, monkeys, and a leopard!
Anna Huntington was a sculptor, renowned for her animal sculptures. She had two art studios in the home. The Huntingtons founded Brookgreen Gardens near their home. Both their home and the gardens are on the National Register of Historic Places.
