Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I am a creative soul. Living on the island at the end of the world... at least that is what it feels like sometimes. Surrounded by water on 3 sides there is no where to go except Savannah. And what a place that is! Two of my favorite places, Tybee Island and Savannah.

Why the Owner Chose Tybee Island, GA, USA:
The house is lovingly restored, integrity true to it's age. It is in my thoughts, the perfect summer house. Porches and beaded board, bright and airy, the house has many spaces and many amenities not found in modern structures. It has grace and charm of it's own. Located 1 1/2 blocks from the ocean and close to the grocery. Most everything you want on the island is within walking distance.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Porches, an outdoor shower. A porch swing. Privacy and outdoor spaces. Antique home with modern fixtures. Hardwood floors and ceiling fans. A comfortable place to take your shoes off. Clean and lived in, not overly designed.
