St. Simons Island, one of coastal Georgia’s Golden Isles, has been a cherished getaway for a more than century, beckoning visitors with Southern hospitality and an atmospheric landscape of live oaks draped with Spanish moss, wetlands and waterways. Now Frederica Estates is offering a limited number of owners the opportunity to build a gracious home or family compound here in a private, gated lakefront community.
The 3,000-acre development bordering the interconnected arms of Lake Frederica encompasses just 21 properties that range from 8 to 43 acres, each with space for a custom estate that could include several residences, tennis courts, stables, formal gardens and even private golf.
Equally important is the chance to bring families and guests together, to slow down the pace of too-frantic 21st-century life and spend precious moments together, sharing experiences and creating lasting memories.
The area is an appealing playground for boaters and fishermen, who will have access to a deep-water dock and boathouse, while wildlife aficionados will appreciate it as a haven for white-tailed deer and extensive bird life, including bald eagles and the wood storks in the federally protected natural habitat of the adjacent Rookery. Horse aficionados will enjoy the stables and other facilities at the community’s equestrian center.
Ownership at Frederica Estates comes with an array of world-class resort amenities, notably a vertical family membership in the Frederica Golf Club,* whose centerpiece is an 18-hole, championship Tom Fazio golf course with a practice facility. The 36,000-square-foot, Spanish-style clubhouse will boast several dining venues, from a fine-dining restaurant to a pub and outdoor pavilion. Tennis and pickleball courts, a pool, a fitness center and a stylish boathouse are all there as well.
With application and approval, estate owners will also become multigenerational members at the century-old Sea Island Club, with an additional roster of five-star amenities. The club is home to three championship golf courses—two of which host the PGA Tour’s RSM Classic—and has access to a state-of-the-art golf academy where professionals train. In addition, there are multiple fine-dining venues, a 65,000-square-foot spa and fitness center, a shooting school and ranges, a yacht club and an extensive arts and enrichment program. The Sea Island Club boasts three pools and five miles of Georgia’s golden-sand beach.
The limited collection of 21 properties is private, luxurious, spacious and perfectly positioned for the active pursuit of sports and other activities. And if the past few years have taught us anything, it is that time is precious. What’s extraordinary about this community is that it offers a chance to realize the home and lifestyle of your dreams and to share it with those closest to you . . . now.
