Originally designed by Francis Abreu and built in 1936, Cottage 76 has been recently restored and expanded with a thoughtful, integrated design by Jack Davis to become one of Sea Island’s finest retreats. This ground-up renovation and expansion retains the original charm of old Sea Island coupled with modern conveniences and easy living. Cottage 76 is located on 14th Street and Sea Island Drive, steps from the beach (third row, beach side) and a short walk or bike ride to Sea Island’s world-class amenities including the Sea Island Beach Club, Cloister Hotel, Spa and Fitness Center and Tennis facilities. Families familiar with this location seek it out year after year because it is close enough to be convenient, but just far enough to be out of the fray on popular weekends.
Features. Cottage 76 was redesigned to accommodate large families, multiple families, extended families or small groups and provides comfortable space and privacy with the ability to gather or dine together in the main family room. The home centers around a giant 300+ year-old Live Oak tree in a courtyard that provides a canopy to envelop the whole house. Cottage 76 features a grand family room designed for entertaining with a historic chandelier from the old Cloister Hotel serving as the centerpiece of the room’s vaulted ceiling. The large chef’s kitchen flows from the family room and includes custom granite counters, Sub Zero refrigerator, Wolf six-top gas range, double ovens, double dishwashers, double sinks and includes everything you need to host a simple lunch or a grand feast. Everyone can watch the big game on the 70-inch HD TV.
Across the courtyard from the family room is a large den with a giant original fireplace and wood-paneled walls and ceiling with three sets of French doors to access the outside. This room also features a 60-inch flat screen TV and is adjacent to the “monkey” bar, an original galley bar and prep area. Cottage 76 was designed for comfort and the enjoyment of the outdoors and beautiful views of the trees, Sea Island Drive and the large in-ground pool and spa, with four separate balconies and porches upstairs and two screened areas downstairs.
At Cottage 76, it is easy to find a great nook to read a book or share a glass of wine. With a Weber gas grill off the Family Room and Green Egg on the side “fish cleaning” porch, there are plenty of options for cooking and entertaining.
Accommodations: The home has two master suites with king beds (one upstairs and one on the main) and a third junior master suite with a queen bed, one guest room with two full beds, a guest room with a King bed, and a guest room over the garage with twin over full bunk beds and another 60 inch LCD HD TV, which is great for video games (game console not included) or giving the kids a place to “hang out” on the occasional rainy day. Each bedroom features a newly renovated private bath, new mattresses and new bedding with 400-thread count sheets for restful and comfortable sleep.
Cottage 76 offers a one-car garage for rental guests and off-street parking in the front and on 14th Street. An elevator from the garage is available for your use if needed.
Cottage 76 also has a covered storage area at the closest access to the beach to provide a place for you to drop your beach toys and chairs before jumping into the large pool.
Other amenities include child dishes and cups for small children, cable HD television, smart TV, all linens, towels, beach towels chairs and wireless internet access.
