Interested in owning a piece of history? The Walker Lynah Cottage is one of the few remaining Beach cottages constructed between 1900-1915 along the beach and Tybee back river. The secluded south beach setting provides incredible sunsets, short kayak or paddleboard trips over to little Tybee and a short stroll to the islands commercial center for shopping and entertainment. The 2 story elevation with deep set double wrap-around porches surround all 4 sides exhibits strong French Colonial influences with a hip roof on a square footprint, wide overhanging eaves and exposed rafter ends. Sited on one of the largest lots on the island the main house interiors still have the original natural wood walls, ceilings and floors. Each of the first and second story rooms has multiple windows to catch the ocean breezes. No need to use the air conditioning in the spring and fall. This historic cottage survived Mathew in 2016 and Irma in 2017 with no damage to the property.
