PREVIOUSLY OFFERED $5.95 MILLION. NOW SELLING WITHOUT RESERVE! Long views over a freshwater lake, a private boat slip, and access to outstanding country club amenities – this is Frederica, a premiere gated community nestled in Georgia’s “Golden Isles” on St. Simons Island. Frederica offers the best of both worlds: breathtaking natural beauty and exquisite modern amenities, all sited between Jacksonville and Savannah on a sea island teeming with life.
Crafted in the “island-colonial” style, this Property was designed by local architect John Rentz, whose work has been featured in publications such as House Beautiful, Sea Island Living, and Dream Homes of Georgia. It is impeccably built, offering historic touches like 300-year-old beams in addition to a cozy, comforting atmosphere obtained by the use of warm woods, natural stone, and rich colors. Upon arrival, a circular drive lined with tropical foliage leads to a front porch furnished with rocking chairs – the perfect place to relax and sip a sweet tea while enjoying lake and golf course views. Inside, a spacious foyer showcases a two-story stone wall and heart of pine flooring, creating an instant welcome for friends and family. The center of the home is built for entertaining, with an open floor plan that spans a gourmet kitchen, light-filled living room, and informal dining – all of which feature beamed ceilings, custom light fixtures, and ample natural light spilling in through French doors and picture windows.
An impressive master suite completes the main level, and offers a fireplace, custom built-ins and peaceful lake views in addition to separate, spacious walk-in closets, a master bath with stone shower and his-and-hers vanities. A large laundry room is accessible from the master suite as well as the hallway that adjoins the living room. The balance of the main residence’s bedrooms are upstairs, and each features an en-suite bath.
The bedrooms are laid out around a central space that includes a handsome office and well-equipped home fitness center, as well as a secondary laundry room.
Ample parking can be had both in the circular drive and the motor court behind the attached, 3-car garage. An additional guesthouse is located above the garage and offers luxurious accommodations for family or live-in staff complete with 1 bed, 1 full bath, a private balcony, and a kitchenette.

FREDERICA, GA. A community developed around the relationship between humans and nature, Frederica is a unique place. This premiere residential enclave offers 24-hour staffed and gated security for its denizens, who enjoy access to world-class amenities ranging from golf to tennis to fishing on its 400-acre, freshwater lake. An equestrian center adjacent to the community’s 1,700 acres is one of the finest in the state – 4 barns, 64 stalls, and a panoply of horses await both the novice and experienced equestrian. A community garden produces fruits, vegetables and even honey for residents to enjoy, and a +150-acre Rookery allows for up-close-and-personal sightings of bald eagles, deer, and wood storks, setting Frederica apart from the average gated community.
Frederica is located on St. Simons Island, the largest of the four barrier islands that make up Georgia’s “Golden Isles.” Noted for its beautiful beaches, myriad outdoor activities, and shopping and dining options, St. Simons Island offers something for everyone to enjoy. A lighthouse in operation since 1872 is open to the public for tours, and the ruins of Fort Frederica and Cannon’s Point offer cultural enrichment to those who desire more than a walk on the beach or a sunset paddle. The pier on the south end of the island draws anglers and sightseers who have ambled over after indulging in a bite (or some retail therapy!) on Mallery Street, and active golfers will enjoy the challenges of the Seaside Course, which is host to the annual PGA tour’s RSM Classic.
GOLDEN ISLES, GA. Since they were settled in the 1700s, the barrier islands of Georgia and their abundant natural beauty have offered a retreat for the rich and famous and young families alike. Tourism, indeed, is the main economic engine of the Golden Isles: the four islands that comprise the region collect over a billion dollars each year from the day-trippers, destination wedding guests and vacationers that flock to its beautiful beaches, golf courses and wildlife preserves. Located within Glynn County (one of Georgia’s original eight counties dating from colonial times), the Isles also boast a collection of elite communities replete with multi-million-dollar homes overlooking the marshes and estuaries that wind their way to the sea.
Living in the Golden Isles is tantamount to a permanent vacation: average temperatures hover around 70 degrees, and residents and visitors are treated to an array of amazing sights from loggerhead turtles and dolphins swimming in the coastal waters to the many art, music and food festivals held throughout the year. Business here isn’t limited to tourism, however; county development authorities work to recruit new industries to the area with a combination of attractive loan terms, tax exemptions and an evolving infrastructure of industrial parks and sites for commercial projects. Residents of the region benefit from this combination of incredible amenities and activities with pro-business policies that allow them to work and play in paradise.
