Saint Simons Real Estate: Butler Mews Richness of Beach Life

Saint Simons real estate - Butler Mews oceanfront viewsDid you know that Saint Simons real estatewith oceanfront views is available for sale near the famed fishing pier?

One of the properties is on Georgia Street, which is part of an area known as Butler Mews. What’s Butler Mews got to offer ocean lovers beside panoramic views? How about a little history?

The area was once the stomping grounds of several famous people, including an Astor Cup winner, United States Congressman and culinary industry entrepreneur. They all shared a love of the area and one piece of Saint Simons real estate in particular. Perhaps you’ve seen what remains of their famous home in magazines or on TV. It goes by the name, Strachan Carriage House.

Although the house itself is no longer on Saint Simons Island, it is still a big part of the area’s real estate history.

Why? The famous families that lived there were fully ingrained in Golden Isles life and there’s even been books written about them. For instance, the home’s namesake was featured in J. N. Averitt’s book, Families of Southeastern Georgia. So you can read about his millionaire lifestyle and learn what it was like to live here in the early 1900s.

It’s also possible to buy or rent palatial homes reminiscent of those grand years. The Georgia Street property we mentioned earlier is a prime example of that. Built in the 1980s, it’s perfect for throwing parties that would make any high roller jealous.

There are plenty of ocean views, open space, bedrooms, full baths and cooking areas to accommodate a crowd. They’re all incorporated into 3,800-square feet of living space which sits atop 0.160-acres of prime, beach real estate.

To see the Georgia Street property in person, please contact DeLoach Sotheby’s International Realty. We can help you live like a millionaire for a season or a lifetime. The choice is yours.
