Originally built as a single family home and then converted into a multi-family dwelling, this "Tybee Cottage" has no issues maintaining its cozy appeal while on the waters of Tybee Island's Back River. The home was completed in 1928 by James Rourke, which is the son of the Savannah Foundry owner, John Rourke. This Cottage has achieved its Historical status along with 167 other "Tybee Cottages" built on the island at that time. Initially finished as a single-story home, the upper unit, structured with dimensional lumber, became a part of the house around the 1950s. Once covered and protected with carpet, recent renovations revealed the home's original hardwood flooring that is in an outstanding condition. This home also has proven income potential that will guarantee an attractive return. The owners will consider allowing the buyer to keep select pieces of antique furniture that is currently in the home if requested.
