Sea Stars Cottage!
History: Sea Stars Cottage (aka the “Judkins-Seay” Cottage to Tybee historians) is an original Raised Tybee Cottage, a unique style of residential architecture that was introduced on Tybee Island after completion of the Tybee Road in 1923. The lovingly restored cottage was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2017! Percy Judkins, the owner of the Savannah Planing Mill Company, built the cottage in 1932 as a summer retreat, but also intended the cottage to serve as an advertisement and showcase for his company’s products. You’ll find his company stamp is prominently affixed to nearly every structural pier and beam on the ground level. Premium building materials were used throughout, from the soft Georgia pine perimeter fencing to the wrap-around lattice, to the interior of the cottage which features the original “Heart Of Pine” woodwork, perhaps one of the last of the Raised Tybee Cottages to remain untouched and in pristine condition.
Newly updated Fall 2016 with a brand new Jack and Jill bathroom!
