Brief History of Turner's Rock
"This land…is one of the most desirable pieces of waterfront property left undeveloped near Savannah. The tract was originally a grant from the English Crown to Louis Turner. The Turner’s Rock Tract is considered one of the most beautiful waterfront areas in the county… some of the views on the land itself are exquisite…there is deep water at its shore...
The property will be private and the entrance closed to the public.”
Original 1937 Savannah wrought iron railings flank the park side and waterfront entrances
This estate is located on a point on the gated, private island of Turner's Rock. The island was purchased and settled in 1937 by seven prominent Savannah families who built large homes along the water front bluff.
These properties rarely change hands. This estate, one of the original seven, has been sold only once in seventy years!
Turner's Rock has been gated for over eighty years!
Turner's Rock is considered by many to be
THE most beautiful, private and sought-after community in the area.
