Finding Your New Home – Saint Simons Real Estate
Is it time to treat yourself to that beach house you’ve always wanted?
It’s always a good time to invest in St Simons–either as your primary residence or a second home. St Simons offers the best of beach living–long stretches of pristine beaches, and world class golf, shopping and dining–in a quiet haven surrounded by marshes and the Atlantic ocean. It’s the marshlands that really set St Simons apart from other islands–Georgia has 90 miles of coast line and 30% of the country’s marshland.
When you drive over the bridge onto the island, the vista as far as you can see are the Marshes of Glynn (if you’re a poetry buff you’ll recall the Sidney Lanier poem that immortalized the sea grass, ancient oak trees, and marsh).
Georgia’s vast salt marsh is an economically productive ecosystem that provides shrimp, oysters, and crab for your dinner and filters pollutants from the water. Take your kayak out during high tide and tour the tidal marsh, and don’t be surprised if you see a bald eagle, dolphins, or sea turtles along the way.
St Simons real estate has something for every lifestyle–you can be on the ocean, or close to downtown shopping and dining, or on the marsh or a golf course.
It’s a resort community, but the warm south Georgia climate makes St Simons comfortable year ’round. You’ll find most of the residents are permanent, about 75%. That particular detail gives the island the feel of a small town, so if you are a seasonal resident you’ll find real community among your neighbors, and if you decide to make St Simons you’re permanent home you’ll have plenty of company.
