Just south of Savannah, beautiful Skidaway Island is home to the American Southeast’s premier private communities, The Landings. Now you can take possession of a stunning island that’s just a stone’s throw away from The Landings and all of its amenities, an island that comes packed with its own natural beauty, abundant wildlife, and a long and unique history—not to mention some of the highest elevations in Chatham County.

Granted to an American colonist by England’s King George III in 1762, Green Island quickly passed into the hands of a British Loyalist, who then lost it during the American Revolution. For nearly a century and a half, it served as a family-owned plantation, before being purchased in 1925 by renowned Superior Court Judge Peter Meldrim, onetime chairman of the American Bar Association. In 1958, Green Island was sold to a prominent Savannah businessman, whose family has maintained and preserved it largely untouched ever since. Fascinating ruins dot the island, including the remains of the stately plantation home and a Civil War gun battery, where General Robert E. Lee inspected the troops stationed there in the fall of 1861.

Today, Green Island is maintained as a private preserve, and is outfitted with a hunting lodge, storage buildings, a natural road system and a dock. (The sale also includes a nearby smaller island, which also has one dock.) Boar, deer and fox roam the island, while majestic American bald eagles and ospreys soar overhead, and over 1,000 acres of marshland are home to stately herons, egrets and beautiful sea birds.

For the first time in over 60 years, Green Island is now available, featuring 450 acres of highland, with limitless possibilities for a grand estate. Its proximity to Skidaway Island means that The Landings’ exquisite amenities are always at your beck and call, including two deepwater marinas, a premier wellness center, six championship golf courses and more than 30 tennis courts. Just a little farther afield lies the incomparable charm of historic Savannah, with its unique array of dining and cultural offerings.
