Shaws Bounty, Devonwood, Wymberly, Vassar Point Real Estate on St Simons Island
In the heart of St. Simons Island, along Frederica Road, four well-established, family-friendly communities will bring joy to any St Simons Island real estate buyer’s heart. Under the shade of countless ancient live oaks, you will find a beautiful variety of homes in a wide range of price points. Each of these neighborhoods has a selection of marshfront properties and generous lots along with some luxury homes.
Shaw’s Bounty is the most architecturally diverse of the four and offers a wider selection of larger homes. It also features a tidal pond, popular with young fishermen. Established in the late 1970’s, Shaw’s bounty sits on a tract of land originally granted by General James Oglethorpe to John Shaw, one of the settlers at Fort Frederica.
Wymberly and Devonwood each extend westward from Frederica Road to the marsh. Shade trees and well-landscaped properties create a feeling of serenity and that easy island lifestyle. Vassar Point runs along a single road to the eastern marsh, with several adjoining cul-de-sacs. There’s little traffic noise to be found in any of these subdivisions.
Because of their central location and easy access to Frederica Road, all four communities are very convenient to shopping, dining and St Simons Island’s endless attractions. Home prices start at about $400,000, and floor plans vary in size, from about 2,500 square feet and up.
Oglethorpe Elementary is the assigned public school for Wymberly, Devonwood and Shaw’s Bounty. Vassar Point is assigned to St. Simons Elementary. All four are assigned to Glynn Middle School and Glynn Academy in Brunswick. Private schools on St. Simons include Frederica Academy (Pre-K—12), St. Simons Christian School (Pre-K—8), and Lord of Life Christian Montessori School (Pre-K—6).
