Finding the perfect home takes a little more effort these days, with a market that’s long on demand but short on supply. We’ve checked in with some area Realtors about their current favorite listings and have found some gorgeous properties – all within The Island Club at Retreat, on St. Simons Island, and all with access to recreational amenities such as golf and tennis in addition to being right in the heart of the Golden Isles.

Joe Wills, Berkshire Hathaway Homeservices Hodnett Cooper Real Estate

What’s not to love?

108 Westchester is a knockout with its iconic Colonial architectural elements and symmetry. Keep your interiors looking clean and minimalistic with loads of storage space and walk-in access closets on the ground level as well as upstairs. It features a living room with masonry fireplace, a formal dining room and gleaming oak floors throughout. The home has four bedrooms, including main suites both upstairs and downstairs. This stately brick Colonial has all the elements anyone would love to have in a home, as well as proximity to shopping, recreation and dining.

Who’s the perfect fit? If you enjoy nature - the big sliding doors with floor-to-ceiling windows and a lush, manicured garden - this home screams for the love and attention of someone with green thumbs. Located on South Island - this gem is hidden away from the holiday rush but accessible enough to enjoy the beach. If you’re someone who appreciates classic style and a stately traditional home with oak floors throughout - this beauty is for you. 

What sets this home apart?

The biggest draw for this house is its spaciousness, the beautifully landscaped outdoor space, the sunroom and the tailored finishes throughout the home.
