Private Homes house description

The first Grand Home on the Historic Old Demere Road

MAKE A MEMORY ON DEMERE!
August Dates are available...... A wedding, Golf or week away...... Call me today!

Our goal was to provide a comfortable and luxurious 'private home'. We believe, you will agree that we have accomplished this. There are FOUR Entertainment areas and FOUR Private BR's.You can get lost with all the space 2,800 sq'.

The Grand Front Porch of this 'private vacation home' Welcomes the SSI Trolley Tour that passes daily year round. Make sure you wave to the tourists on the SSI Trolley & to the locals as they bike by. Here you will experience True Southern Hospitality! Enjoy your mint julep or a glass of sweet tea. Sitting under the front porch you are shaded by magnificent grand live oaks and protected from the Georgia rains.

The night landscape lighting makes you feel you have arrived at an oasis, outdoor up lights flood the yard and showcase the beautiful palms and century old live oaks.

Parking is not a worry, the private drive leads you to the garage.
There are no other homes towering over the house or deck..

The beautiful front walkway leads you to the Grand Front Porch.Step through the front door to enjoy the naturally sun lite, Open Designed Living Room, Kitchen & Dining Room. This large space allows for all to have a memorable social gathering. Prepare a Sunday Brunch or Family Diner and overflow onto the Front Porch & 2nd Side Deck.

The layout affords privacy and comfort for 4 families. The 3 BR's on the main level have a split floor plan.The Private Master is off the DR. A separate hallway off the Great Room (Other side of the house main level) splits the 2 Quiet BR's/baths.

                          Year Purchased: 2010

                          About the owner: I dabble in art and loved my photography career. I have worked art shows and also critique. My husband is a sales consultant to the telephone industry. We have 4 kids & 2 grandkids. What drew us to SSI was our first visit to Jekyll in 1998. We watched the Sidney Lainer Bridge being built an engineering marvel) and laugh at the times we waited for the old draw bridge to open. My husband said that's how its done... SLOW. We saw some changes but love the building code (no high-rises). There have been many improvements to SSI, one of the best being, NEPTUNE PARK in the village. A well thought out master plan. We watched it being built in Feb 2009. A NEW Water Wonderland for all ages. It features 3 connecting pools with a kids water park, playground, mini-golf and water aerobics. What a view overlooking the Atlantic Ocean & Jekyll Island! Please be assured your stay at this private home will exceed your expectations I am only a email/phone call away to answer ANY questions you have.

                          Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
                          This private home was exactly what we where searching for. It took 4 years to find it and many open houses.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
