Indulge in joyous family moments and cherished memories at "As Time Goes By," a delightful haven boasting wide porches, airy rooms, a spacious heated saltwater pool, and easy access to the beach! This historic gem was named for its original 1920 Tybee Strand Cottage status, preserving its timeless charm while offering modern comforts for an unforgettable stay.
Step inside and immerse yourself in the rich history and character of this home, with hardwood floors, beadboard walls, and tall 14' ceilings adorned with transom windows, welcoming in the island's refreshing breeze. The claw foot bathtub and the wide curving porch on three sides exude a sense of nostalgia, inviting you to relax and unwind in style.
Designed by acclaimed preservationist Jane Coslick, "As Time Goes By" reflects her artistic touch in every detail, from the inviting porch bed perfect for napping, to the cleverly designed built-in bunk room featuring individual reading lights for each bunk. The beautifully curated furnishings exude comfort and beachy charm, showcasing soothing white tones paired with pops of beachy turquoise, pink, orange, and citron through original artwork, vintage furniture finds, and cool lighting from beloved makers such as Stray Dogs Designs and Ro Sham Beaux.
Upon entering, you'll find four steps leading to the main level, where an updated kitchen with island seating for four, a light-filled dining room with space for up to twelve, a laundry area, and a welcoming living room with a large TV. The primary bedroom is also located on this floor, fitted with a king bed and beautiful ensuite full bath. Down the hall, guests will find a guest bedroom with two queen beds and another renovated full bathroom.
Upstairs, a third bedroom with a queen bed features an adjoining reading nook, while the bunk room boasts four twin beds and a shared full bath. The upstairs den beckons with a TV and game table, offering a peek of an ocean view to savor.
The large wraparound porch welcomes you to read, visit, or dine al fresco, complete with a ping pong table for added fun. The large heated saltwater pool becomes the heart of your outdoor experiences, surrounded by a spacious deck with a dining table and an outdoor shower.
Located just one house away from the beach, you can easily access the sandy shores via a private walkway with steps, or opt for the public 13th Street walkover, just a short stroll or drive away.
