Alex Murdaugh’s South Carolina beach house sells again
The longtime South Carolina beach retreat of Alex Murdaugh and his late wife Maggie is under contract to sell again just months after it was quietly sold last summer, the Post can report.
Murdaugh, along with Magee’s estate, sold the Edisto Island home near Charleston for $955,000 in July 2022 — the same time he was arrested and charged with the murders of her and her youngest son, Paul.
The residence was also sold less than a year after he was charged with insurance fraud, conspiracy to commit insurance fraud and filing a false police report.
They listed the home for sale in January for $1.18 million, less than six months after it was sold to Minnesota locals, Jon and Gail Lancto.
The property went under contract last month.
It’s unclear why lactose is selling so quickly. The post has been reached for comment.
Alex and Maggie Murdaugh bought the four-bedroom, three-bathroom Cape Cod-style estate in 2002 for $415,000, according to records obtained by The Post.
It was considered their second home, used as a vacation spot, almost two decades before the tragic family was engulfed in scandal.
As a “once in a lifetime opportunity,” according to the listing, the next owner will see the property fully furnished with designer brands.
At more than 2,300 square feet, the property has been completely renovated – with features including a sun deck, vaulted ceilings, wood flooring, a gourmet kitchen and a wood-burning fireplace.
The sunroom has floor-to-ceiling windows and can be accessed from the living room — as well as the primary bedroom and a guest bedroom, the listing notes.
On the ground level there is an enclosed shower to wash off the sand after a day at the beach, a dressing area, a fishing sink and storage room.
Maggie, 52, and Paul, 22, were murdered on June 7, 2021, at the Murdaugh family farm in Moselle, South Carolina.
Alex was convicted of the murders on March 2. The disgraced former lawyer was then sentenced to two consecutive life sentences with no possibility of parole.
Meanwhile, a separate source told The Post that the family’s 1,700-acre hunting farm is under contract and close to being sold after all of the family’s personal belongings were removed from the property.
“The new buyer is someone who has no connection to the family … none at all,” the insider revealed.
