Where the joy of coastal living
just comes naturally
Welcome to a place where tidal creeks once navigated by Native
Americans meander beneath ancient trees. Where over five miles
of fresh water lagoons wind gracefully across the land. Where the
intracoastal waterway frames the land and life flows gently with the
tides. Welcome to WaterWays Township.
The Beauty of the Land
It doesn’t take long to notice there is something truly special about the land
at WaterWays. The canopied oaks soothe. The coastal marshlands calm.
The views of Red Bird WaterWay excite. To put it simply, the beauty of this
land is not just around you, it changes you.
A 2,300-acre community located just south of historic Savannah, Georgia in
charming Richmond Hill, WaterWays Township was designed and developed
in respect to the land’s natural vegetation. With a mild climate and rich
coastal soils, this area has some of the most spectacular plant life in the
Southeast. And with 2,000 acres of state wildlife management areas, over
six miles of coastal marshlands and the surrounding Red Bird WaterWay
nearby you can bet that Mother Nature will be one of your favorite neighbors.
Water’s influence is central to life at WaterWays Township. Take the kids crabbing in the coastal marshlands or go kayaking in
lieu of an early morning run. Here, you will find endless opportunities to connect, renew and engage with the beauty of water.
Low Country Living
Whether it’s spending a few short minutes on the porch just before dinner
or enjoying the light breeze on an afternoon bike ride, WaterWays Township
is a place where the simpler pleasures in life are rediscovered.
The kind of place that makes you cherish the little things. Like the slam
of the screen door when the kids get home from school or meeting your
neighbors in the community garden. The things that easily go unnoticed
until they’re gone.
Understated Southern Elegance
Much like historic Savannah, WaterWays offers homes with raised porches,
deep verandahs and exposed rafter tails to represent the simple southern
elegance of the area. And just as this land is unique, homeowners are
encouraged to create residences with extraordinary character and
everlasting appeal to complement a place of such rare natural beauty and
diverse coastal habitat.
WaterWays Township is centrally located to a number of key points of interest. The community is about 15 miles from Interstate
95, a primary transportation corridor serving the entire eastern coast.
Casual Elegance of Richmond Hill
The city of Richmond Hill is located approximately 11 miles from WaterWays Township.
A quiet family community, with top-rated schools, coastal location, historic past and
proximity to the commerce and culture of Savannah have all contributed to Richmond Hill’s
reputation and bright future as a great place to live.
With more than 10,000 residents, Richmond Hill is known for its small town charm and
unique local flair. Offering residents a variety of things to enjoy in the community including
local dining, shopping, recreational programs and entreprenural business opportunities,
Richmond Hill is coastal living at its finest.
Richmond Hill is centrally located at the crossroads of I-95 and Hwy 17 on the Georgia
coast. It is 30 minutes or less to Darien, Hinesville, Midway, Pooler or downtown
Savannah. Within an hour’s drive, you can visit Brunswick, Hilton Head Island,

Experience Savannah’s Southern Charm
From the very beginning, Savannah was destined to become more than
just another quaint southern town. Founded in 1733 by James Edward
Oglethorpe, Savannah is the oldest city in Georgia and an exceptional
example of 18th-century town planning based on community squares.
Today, 22 of the 24 original squares remain, each unique in character
and attitude, with churches, homes and public buildings, along with
expanses of open green space.
A Gracious and Growing City
This vibrant coastal city has been named by Conde’ Nast Traveler as one
of the top 10 U.S. cities to visit. Savannah has also been the beautiful
backdrop for a number of movies including “Midnight in the Garden of
Good and Evil”, “Forrest Gump”, and most recently, “The Last Song”.
Unquestionably, Savannah is a gracious city of the past, and will clearly
be one for many years in the future.
Savannah is also bringing new economic life to the area with the
expansion of its port. Today the port of Savannah is the fourth largest
and second busiest container port in the nation for exports of American
goods. The proposed deepening of the port will generate powerful
economic benefits such as more jobs, opportunities and long-term
business growth for the Savannah and Richmond Hill area.

Stretching back 5,000 years to the first great Indian civilization in North America, the
WaterWays land is practically a walkable history lesson. In fact, many excavations
have been conducted over the years, in which archaeologists have unearthed
Native American arrowheads, pottery, tools and even smoking pipes. What’s more,
automobile icon Henry Ford purchased this property in the 1920’s, including a
homestead called Cottenham Plantation, and some structural elements are still evident
on the land today. To live with such history is rare in today’s world. It’s an experience
that cannot be replicated.
