The many grand old homes in
Jekyll's historic village tell us that in the late 1800's the
millionaires; Rockefellers, Goulds, Morgans and others found Jekyll
Island an attractive spot to invest in real estate. Jekyll's drawing
card at the time was peaceful seclusion in a pristine atmosphere with a
great climate. Today, folks are still buying Jekyll Island property for
the same reasons.
Restrictions on developing no more than 35% of Jekyll's high land have
ensured that the atmosphere you buy today will still be here tomorrow.
Remodeling and redevelopment
of existing buildings and building sites is a prime concern today. One
such redevelopment is the conversion of the old Clarion Resort site to
soon become The Cottages At Jekyll Island, 122 cottage style townhouse
units on 14 acres of prime oceanfront land.
Many Jekyll property owners
have purchased with retirement in mind. Some already call Jekyll their
permanent home while others have purchased second homes looking to a
future move. These properties have rental potential that can help to
defray the cost of ownership.
