St Simons Island Real Estate offers a lifestyle filled with history, attractions and marshes with fine living at its best on the largest barrier island in the Golden Isles.
Both full and part time home owners enjoy an array of lifestyle options. The Island can be broken down into three areas: the south end or Village area, mid-St. Simons, and the north end. Each has its own flare and unique amenities.
The south end Village area offers a charming and unique selection of shops, plus a variety of restaurants ranging from fine dining to casual outdoor fare. St. Simons Island real estate property owners appreciate the close proximity to these diverse places.
Visitors and residents alike enjoy cooling down and engaging in a little outdoor recreation at Neptune Park and it’s Fun Zone, which includes a public pool, miniature golf and a fishing pier. It is also home to our lighthouse, built in 1872 and still guiding ships to port today. St. Simons Island real estate owners as well as visitors access the beaches from this part of the island, where they enjoy birding, paddle boarding, sailing and all that goes along with fun at the beach. And do not be surprised to see golf carts traversing the streets where they are allowed on those roads where the speed limit does not exceed 35 mph.
The majority of property on the south end Village area consists of condos and second homes and it is more intensely developed. But not to fear, this community is tightly controlled from a development perspective including limiting residential real estate building heights to 35 feet and condos and hotels to 45 feet all in an effort to maintain its charm.
Real estate on the south end of St Simons Island includes beach cottages and classic bungalows which are a common fixture of this older and charming area. Of course, oceanfront homes will be the most expensive. For all these reasons and more, this is the most active section of the Island in terms of property sales.
The Mid area is home to more traditional developments and homes. For the most part this area has been developed since about the late 1940s through today. While almost fully developed, there are still some building lots awaiting homes though with each passing year there are fewer.
Prices in this area tend to be less expensive than on the south end although mid-Island homes overlooking our beautiful marshes will tend to be more expensive than south end interior properties.
The last to be developed, the north end still has large tracts of undeveloped acreage. In fact, the St. Simons Land Trust is currently in the process of acquiring a 800 acre maritime forest peninsular known as Cannon’s Point.
St. Simons Island real estate on north end typically comprise of homes sitting on larger property lots from one-half acre up to 10 acres in Butler Plantation, an estate lot community developed by DeLoach Sotheby’s International Realty.
North home prices are considered to be reasonable allowing buyers to get the most square footage for their money. Because of the larger lot sizes, this area has the lowest density. The entire Island is connected by a wonderful bike path system.
