Tybee Island, Georgia
This turquoise coastal cottage on stilts, modeled on the traditional island style, was built in 1992, says Joel Solomon, co-owner of Solomon Properties.
The three-bedroom, two-bath "Big Tuna Cottage" was moved to its current site and renovated in 2013, he says.
The 1,450-square-foot bungalow has an open floor plan with vaulted ceilings, granite counters and a dining area with a bay window.
Settled at the edge of a protected marsh and less than a quarter-mile from the ocean, "it has a ton of windows" and a beachy vibe, Solomon says.
A little about Tybee Island
Tybee, a barrier island off Georgia's coast, "is a 1950-something time warp of a beach town," says Cindy Meyer, broker associate with Seabolt Brokers LLC in Savannah. Many of the cottages were built during World War I and World War II, when there was a military base on the island, she adds.
The average home sale is $409,050, according to Realtor.com.
It's a popular summer venue for those who want to "unplug," and enjoy the natural beaches and salt marshes, she says. While the year-round population is about 3,000, it swells to 10 times that during the season, says Meyer.
