Our home is on Wilmington Island on the Wilmington River and has a dock on 1.73 acres in a very safe neighborhood surrounded by marshes and rivers. Only 15 minutes from Tybee Beach (on the Atlantic Ocean for swimming, surfing, fishing, kayaking, dining, beachcombing for shells) and 15 minutes from historic downtown (founded in 1730 by General Oglethorpe, one of the original 13 colonies of the United States). Known as a walking city, downtown is filled with beautiful squares and huge oak trees drapped with Spanish moss. There are wonderful antique shops, restaurants, and bars everywhere. Savannah is also known as the most haunted city in the United States!
Our house is single story, spacious and comfortable. Nothing fancy, just good family living. We raised two children, including their friends! and 5 cats in this house. The master bedroom has a screened porch and overlooks the river. There are two additional bedrooms that share a bathroom and another full bath. The kitchen is very modern with two islands and is open to the breakfast room. The patio just outside the kitchen has an outdoor cook station (perfect for cooking the crabs you just caught in the river!) The den overlooks the river and has a large flat screen TV. There is an office with desk top computer. WIFI is available throughout. The house is very open with windows overlooking the river.
You can see dolphins swimming just about every day, even from the windows in the house! Birds and butterflies are everywhere. Enjoy swimming, fishing and crabbing right in the back yard. Our blue crabs are world famous for their sweet meat and are prolific in the summer months. Spot tail bass, salt water trout, and other delicious fish are bountiful. The river is wide and deep and teeming with wild life. We have 8 foot tides twice a day and you will enjoy the most beautiful sunsets in the world! We are a cat loving family and now are down to just two cuties that rule the house! No litter box, though, the cats use a built- in cat door and go in and out as they please. They only need fresh food and water each day and some loving attention. We can offer you a car and bicycles and can tell you where to rent kayaks.
