About the Property
4 Bedroom, 4 Bathroom, Sleeps 7-8
This cottage was built by W. Montgomery Anderson as his family’s residence in 1951 and was lived in by them until 2003 when the present owners purchased it. Montgomery, or “Gummy” as he was often called, was employed by the architectural firm of Abreu and Robeson, and was the Sea Island Company’s principal architect until his death in 1979. In addition to Addison Mizner, and together with T. Miesse Baumgardner or “Bummy”, the Company’s landscape architect, they were responsible for much of the early “look” of Sea Island which included the design of this house and its landscaping. In addition to this house, Gummy’s and Bummy’s work included the third Sea Island Beach Club and guest houses such as Hamilton and Demere (all now demolished), and notable cottages including 57, 76, 79, and 151.
Many of the materials used to build this house were salvaged from projects that Gummy was working on at the time of the home’s construction. As an example, the quarter-sawn long leaf heart pine floors in this house were originally used as flooring around the pool area of the second Beach Club or “Casino” as it was called back then. Photos in the Beach Club Lobby and Locker Rooms of the current (fourth) Beach Club depict these boards being installed around the Casino pool in 1928.
Accurately restored in 2004, this fine, sophisticated home has been updated to include the latest in KitchenAid Architect Series II built-in appliances, Sony entertainment systems, and Wi-Fi wireless enabled high speed broadband internet connectivity. The sleek 1950’s design lines in the kitchen include commercial grade stainless steel cabinetry that frame wall coverings created from authentic vintage New Yorker magazine covers installed by the Andersons. The baths and master dressing area include custom designed macassar ebony cabinetry and Kohler and Waterworks fixtures.
The cottage is furnished in the style of the 40’s and 50’s and includes furnishings by designers who produced during that era. Original and reproduction furnishings include those designed by Tommi Parzinger, George Nelson, T. H. Robsjohn-Gibbings, James Mont, Richard Schultz, Scalamandré, Gilbert Rohde, Tapio Wirkkala, Isamu Noguchi, Diego Giacometti, and Edward Wormley. Additionally, almost all of the artwork was created by Athos Menaboni, a celebrated wildlife painter who lived and worked in Georgia during the era. Most of these items were purchased at auction.
Cottage 119 was one of several featured homes in Christ Episcopal Church’s 1st Tour of Homes and Gardens in 1953 and was again featured on the 55th Annual Tour in 2008. Only three families have lived in this cottage since it was built in 1951. The second owners carefully restored this cottage to its original design and era. The home is impeccably maintained for your enjoyment.
