Property description

Vintage River Cottage on 3 acres with view of the Okatie River. Ideally located halfway between Savannah, Beaufort and easy drive to the Savannah/Hilton Head airport. The Lowcountry at its orginal best. Old live oaks, camellia forests, magnolias, a perfect location from which to explore the Lowcountry. This cottage is the original house on the property known as Cedar Bluff, owners live in big house steps away. Still private and quiet.

The cottage shares the property with the owners who live in big house nearby. The cottage features a wonderful screened porch, hardwood floors, ceiling fans throughout. Dating from 1925, the cottage has lots of character, all the necessities, plus some, but keep in mind that it is almost 100 years old so if you are looking for something new and modern, this is not for you. If you want to experience the Lowcountry as it used to be and in some places still is, then this is your place.

The owners also offer a small log cabin in Western North Carolina near Cashiers, Glenville, Sylva, VRBO #300192

Year Purchased: 1984

About the owner: Owners are native to the area. He grew up on the May River in Bluffton and is in real estate in the area. She grew up in Savannah, is an independent fine arts consultant and also works with the local historic foundation.

Why the Owner Chose Okatie:
The cottage was our original vacation home when we lived in the downtown historic district of Savannah, Georgia. Upon making our property on the Okatie our permanent home, we make the cottage available to guests who would enjoy 'old Carolina' or 'old Lowcountry'....It is charming, has all the necessities, not too many fancy bells and whistles, but many amenities such as 'old trees, pristine tidal river, one of the Lowcountry's best screened porches for sitting , reading or sippin'.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
excellent location equi-distant between historic downtown Savannah (1733) and historic Beaufort (1711) and Bluffton....15 minutes off the bustle of I-95. quiet riverfront residential area, 3+ acres.
