In what's shaping up to be one of the exciting Savannah GA gated communities only 30 minutes from one of America's Best College Towns, the WaterWays Township is set along more than six miles of marshlands among 2,300 acres. In addition, 1,600 acres of wildlife conservation area border the Savannah community. This highly-desirable place to live just south of downtown Savannah is developed by Fletcher Management Company who's been satisfying customers since 1962. Their award-winning team is pulling out all the stops to provide an enjoyable, wellness oriented, and protected outdoor playground in the community for families all ages and we've been informed the community is bank debt free. With its unique topography and wildlife habitat, this Savannah neighborhood-in-the-making presents a versatile way of life in one of the best places to retire Georgia.

Surrounded by lush marshland and teeming with an abundance of wildlife, amenities include the unique Bill Dance Signature Fishing Experience where stocked lagoons are a key attraction for fisherman from all over the country. There are more than 450 acres of preserved wide open spaces for recreational purposes, as well as countless hammocks and stately oak trees drapped in Spanish moss canopying the neighborhood. With the best schools in Richmond Hill nearby, families won’t have to commute far for their children’s educational needs or Boomers can take college online courses from SCAD (Savannah College of Art & Design).

Waterways Township consists of three primary neighborhoods, each offering slightly differing homes and homesites in varying price ranges. The heavily-wooded homesites at WaterWays Parkway South are priced from the $60k's. The Village Center-oriented homesites at Long Creek begin in the $50k's and RidgeWood Park along the State Wildlife area is where you'll find cottage-style homes from the low $200k's. Approximately 40 homes are built to date of the 3,000 planned. 

The onsite Dream Finders Homes Design Center is currently at work on the newest Marbella home plan. This features a staggering 4,144 square feet of luxury living nestled in a space so loaded with mature landscaping that it appears timeless. Each four-bedroom home has 3.5 baths and a three-car garage. Copper and stone accents are details which make these must-see residences exquisitely beautiful with a homey elegance. Featured Waterways Township new home builders include C. Pickett Enterprises, Dream Finders Homes, Grant Homes, Keller Enterprises and Lewis-Bashlor Construction LLC. Suggested home loan lenders include The Coastal Bank, SWBC Mortgage, Colony Bank, Fairway Independent Mortgage Corp, Queensborough National Bank and Trust and Regions Bank.

Property owners will never lack inspiration or motivation in the well-connected WaterWays Township community. Their online blog keeps residents up-to-date on opportunities large and small. Brunswick, the U.S. Naval Submarine base at St. Mary’s, and Kingsland are not far away; and only 20 miles from Savannah, Richmond Hill offers a country lifestyle close enough to the city for the best of both worlds. Their annual Great Ogeechee Seafood Festival is a family-friendly event which was initiated in 1999, and brings so many annual visitors it actually doubles the town’s population for a short time period! Don’t forget the Richmond Hill Farmer’s Market, which is open every Tuesday from April to October at the J.F. Gregory Park.

Explore nearby Ossabaw Island and Fort McAllister State Historic Park, or if speed is your style, visit Oglethorpe Speedway. There are numerous waterways in the area, including the Ogeechee, Medway, Jerico, and Bear River Rivers; as well as the Intracoastal. Rainy-day activities might include Fort Stewart Museum, which focuses on Army airfield history; or the nonprofit, membership-based Richmond Hill Historical Society’s Museum. All in all, this is one of the best places to retire Georgia. 

Richmond Hill Primary and Carver Elementary School, Richmond Hill Middle School, and Richmond Hill High School are the closest and best schools in Richmond Hill. The Savannah College of Art & Design is only about 30 minutes to the north although Baby Boomers may find taking college courses online easier.

Developer creditability is a strong description or approach to a question. I marked 3 stars due to the new open gate policy. We purchased our home largely due to WaterWays Township being a gated community. NOT HAPPY WITH OPEN GATE!
