1305 2nd Ave Tybee Island, GA 31328

Tybee Train Car Cottage


): Welcome home to a truly inspiring and one of kind beach cottage retreat for the poet and artist in all of us.  You will be swept away to a simpler time and place when you enter 1305 2nd Ave and are greeted by an amazing space built around a Tybee Island Railway Car.  The train car was placed on its permanent foundation sometime shortly after 1929 when the highway was finished, and the railroad was no longer the primary means for reaching the island.  In the early 1950’s the first addition was made to include the living areas and kitchen, preserving the railway car as the centerpiece of this eclectic artists cottage.   Recent additions have created 3 spacious bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms as well as a carport and large storage shed. 


For the savvy investor this home is an amazing find, with a freshly updated exterior, systems less than 10 years old and room to add some sweat equity, without any major renovations.  Tybee Island hosts over 1 million tourists each year that average a stay of 3 to 4 days.  You have a huge opportunity to use your second home as added income through renting this home to visitors for nightly and weekly stays!  Please look at the investor package on this website. 


You will enjoy your visits to Tybee Island with a large screened in porch for early morning coffee and evening cocktails with a sweet summer breeze.  You will love biking and walking the neighborhood which is only a few blocks from shopping and restaurants and The BEACH!
