Wilmington Island is a highly sought after area in the Savannah marketplace, buyers covet the schools, fantastic restaurants and well-planned subdivisions. No matter the price point, there is something for every buyer, from affordable condominiums all the way up to multi-million dollar mansions. Young couples interested in raising a family are often attracted to the area because of the masterful public and private schools on the island.
Wilmington Island is one of several barrier islands off the coast of Savannah, Georgia known as the Back Barrier Islands. The communities form a large and affluent suburb of this famously historic city, where most residents work. The island lies east of Savannah between the city of Thunderbolt and the beach community of Tybee Island. Wilmington Island offers a wide variety of housing options including private homes, townhomes and condominiums, some properties are water- or marsh-front.
One of the selling points for living on Wilmington Island is its location relative to the other area islands and the city of Savannah. Located just 10 minutes from Tybee Island, where Savannah goes to the beach, and 20 minutes from Downtown Savannah, Wilmington Island is convenient to all areas of Savannah. With multiple shopping centers, major grocery store chains, banks, hardware stores and restaurants it makes for a convenient lifestyle with doctors and dentists nearby.
The Island also offers great access to a wide variety of outdoor activities like water skiing, tennis, biking, golfing, jogging, soccer and more. Some of the premiere developments include Mercer’s Point condominiums, The Residences on Turner’s Creek , the Wilmington Island Club and more. And just to toss a little star-power in, keep in mind that Savannah’s own Paula Deen lives and films her television show right in the heart of Wilmington Island!
GOLFING ON WILMINGTON ISLAND
In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Wilmington Island was a rural farming area accessible only by boat that supplied crops-primarily indigo and cotton- to the booming city of Savannah. The acclaimed farm of Dr. Arminius Oemler on Wilmington Island was known throughout the state and he also became a well-known promoter of the oyster industry in Georgia. Such was the typical fare for more than a hundred years.
In 1893, the Wilmington Island Pleasure and Improvement Company started a summer community on the south end. More resort development followed in 1927 with the Hotel Wilmington Island (later called the General Oglethorpe), a popular destination for golf. Now known as the Wilmington Island Club, the golf course was recently updated to remain consistent to its original Donald Ross design.
The Par 71, 18 hole championship course provides a very fine, fair test of golf: not overly difficult but a true challenge. Throughout the years, the course has hosted a USGA Amateur Open, The Georgia Open and other local and state golfing events.
The Club has a long, storied past including one of Savannah’s great urban legends revolving around the Teamster’s and Jimmy Hoffa. Today the elegant building is restored as condominiums and stands as the tallest building in Chatham County.
