Pooler Homes and Growing Neighborhoods in West of Savannah
When tourists think of Savannah, they generally think of the historic district and its tree lined streets, but the area is more than just the city of Savannah proper. Savannah has grown to touch, and sometimes surround adjacent communities. West of Savannah, which includes Pooler homes, Port Wentworth, Garden City and Effingham County, is the fastest growing area in the nation. Building is focused on Pooler homes — especially the areas of Godley Station and Berwick. Also there are a dozen other large master-planned communities such as Southbridge and Savannah Quarters, which are attractive golf communities. West Chatham real estate communities offer easy access to Interstate Highways 95 and 16, as well as to the Hilton Head International Airport, which makes the area a popular choice for commuters.
Another plus for the westside is that the schools in this area are ranked in the top 10% of the state’s best (that includes 8 elementary schools, 3 middle schools, and 2 high schools). Besides great schools, the areas of Pooler and Berwick are both host to a large amount of stores, restaurants, and medical offices. Both Pooler and Berwick, as well as Godley Station, offer gated communities with single family homes, many of which are brand new or have only had one previous owner.
Pooler, Rincon, Port Wentworth — and extending west out of Chatham County into Effingham and Bryan Counties, Guyton, Richmond Hill, Bloomingdale, Springfield, and even Statesboro — are now home to tens of thousands of families whose bread earners work at some of the nearby manufacturing and distribution facilities. As such, demand for housing west of Savannah has spurred a plethora of new housing developments in those areas. Due to the increased industrial growth of Effingham County, many homebuyers are finding themselves with plenty of viable options, such as larger homes, on larger plots of land for lower prices. And since Effingham County is experiencing such a surge of growth, residents are finding themselves with good schools, and more variety of quality commercial establishments.
Combine the job opportunities and housing choices, along with the proximity to the regional airport and the intersection of major interstates I-95 and I-16, and you have a very compelling argument to live West of Savannah.
