6 Northshore Drive was built in 1992 and renovated in 2017. Used primarily as a private home occupied by the original owner, it is a warm, welcoming, well-loved family home. It has the feeling of an elegant townhouse, by the sea. The house offers four bedrooms and four and a half baths, comfortably accommodating up to eight guests.
Located in a small, gated enclave on Tybee's northern end, the house fronts Tybee's north beach. It offers views of the ocean and the mouth of the Savannah River, the entry point for the big ships on their way to port. Especially beautiful are the lighted ships passing silently in the night, rivaling only their colorful vibrancy in the sunlight. A private boardwalk to the dune allows direct access to the beach. It is a bit of a climb over the dune, but other options are available.
Entrance to the house is from a covered carport via stairs and/or an elevator to each of the two floors above. Most notable is the large partially covered deck facing the water from the living room. The view is an everchanging parade of sky, light, clouds, beach life, ships, kite fliers, kite surfers, and small family groups on this less populated, more low-key stretch of sand.
The first floor is comprised of an open Living Room, Dining Room, Kitchen, and Sunroom which features a baby grand piano. (Feel free to play!) The fully equipped kitchen has all the basic cooking essentials, and a gas range with wall mounted pot filler, for that Lowcountry Boil you know you want to make!
Also on this level is one of four bedrooms, with twin daybed and trundle, and en suite bath. A screened porch with Weber gas grill, powder room, and laundry closet completes the main floor.
The second floor has three bedrooms, each with en suite bath. The Owner's Suite faces the ocean, with a private sun deck providing views of the beach, Hilton Head Island across the water, and in the far distance eastward, the ships waiting their turn to go up the river.
In the bathroom enjoy a large soaking tub with views of the sky. A large shower, water closet with toilet and bidet, a walk-in dressing closet, and a morning kitchen with coffee maker, mini-fridge, and microwave provide comfort and luxury in this private retreat.
The other two bedrooms on the second floor each have queen beds and en suite baths, as well as private balconies with views of the lighthouse.
After your day at the beach, rinse away the sand in the enclosed outdoor shower with a porthole view of the dune, located just off the carport. And last, but not least, end your evening enjoying refreshments seated around the wood burning firepit situated on the dune-side, white-rock, garden terrace. Welcome to 6 Northshore Drive, Tybee Island, GA!
