Property description

Modern comforts abound in this exceptional historic Tybee Island beachfront home which features 6 BR/4 BA and elevator access to all levels, including a newly renovated third floor penthouse with unobstructed views. Showcased on CNN and in Savannah Magazine and the Savannah Morning News, the home has a magnificent 180 degree panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean. A walkway provides direct access to three miles of pristine beach.

The living and dining areas feature the original knot-free heart pine walls, ceilings and floors. A handsome brick fireplace divides two large family spaces.

A CLASSIC TYBEE HOUSE

The entire original interior of the main floor is built of old pine with 10 ft. ceilings, picture windows and abundant light. With 6 bedrooms and 4 full baths, this home is perfect for a large family, many guests or multiple families. The three bedrooms on the main level open onto a wide screened porch that embraces the prevailing southeasterly winds. The home has central air as well as a natural cross-ventilation through opposing windows and doors that keep the cool breezes flowing through the house. The enormous wraparound porch has original cypress flooring and can accommodate large or intimate gatherings.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1966

About: I am a business woman who works in a fifty year old family real estate development company. Besides being a painter, my husband and I are serious photographers who enjoy photographing different cultures. I have been very involved in Savannah’s and Georgia’s arts communities among other civic organizations. The rest of my time is shared with our three children and grandchildren.

Why Tybee Island:
Tybee is a beautiful barrier island just 25 minutes from Savannah where we live off season. This home has been our home for 45 years. It is perfectly situated at the highest point along Tybee’s beach. The view is superb and it is one of the few streets where homes are not crowded together.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Some of the unique benefits that we enjoy are: the location – ocean front, nothing blocking a 180° view of the ocean, fine grained beach sand great for walking, biking, playing bocce ball or handball, wooden walkway over sand dunes for easy beach access, screened porch sitting area and dining area for 20 or more people, all facing prevailing Southeast winds, windows and door opposite each other for cross ventilation when air conditioning is not needed, original heart pine paneling, penthouse apartment with private balcony, two kitchens, 3 refrigerators/freezers, one stand alone freezer, separate HVAC systems for each floor, built in vacuum cleaner system, elevator, handicap ramps. Also nearby grocery store, restaurants, and historic sites.
