Year Purchased: 2001
About: Sandpiper Cottage was built in the early 1970s by 2 brothers to share with their growing families. The door frame to the laundry room has the names, dates, and heights of all of their children. When we purchased Sandpiper our children's info was also added, along with a few of our 4-legged family members. Their family continues to travel to St. George Island and we are honored that they still stay in Sandpiper when they visit. Our family purchased Sandpiper Cottage in 2001, we have had fun making Sandpiper Cottage our own. The pool and landscape was the first large project we tackled. When we purchased the cottage, I could not wait for the day I could change the outside color from that 'crazy pink' to a more subdued color. However, that day came in 2008 and we just could not make ourselves change the color, in fact, we chose a color called Caribbean Coral-we always tell folks to look for the pink house with a green roof on East 5th! We consider Sandpiper Cottage a true Florida cottage. But don't let the age fool you, all of the systems have been replaced, along with new duct work, flooring, furniture(inside & out), and of course paint.
Why East End, St. George Island, FL, USA:
Growing up on the Georgia coast a beach town was not a place with resorts and high rise condos. It was a place where you could hop on your bike and not worry about traffic. We spent many years exploring coastal towns from Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, and even California. Our current home is in the Metro Atlanta area and we were looking for a quiet place to get away. The late Celestine Sibley, a long time writer for the Atlanta Journal Constitution, on occasion would write of her travels to her 2nd home on Dog Island Florida in the Gulf of Mexico. Her writings intrigued us and that is how we found The Forgotten Coast. Finally a place to getaway, to leave your worries behind, and at one time, a place where our cell phones could not get a signal. How great was that!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Sandpiper Cottage is on a corner lot, it is positioned across from a beach right of way that cannot be built upon. You walk out your door, cross the street and you are on the dune walkover. There is not a home to our right, left, or behind Sandpiper. The island bike path conveniently crosses the rear of our property-it is great for walking pets, early morning runs, and of course sight seeing on your bike. Bicycle, golf carts are available to rent in numerous locations on the SGI. If you get a chance, during your visit, check out the sunsets on the west end of the island, on the bay side.
