Tour to showcase Island homes

Published: Thursday, January 30, 2014 at 04:51 PM.

Just a few doors down is “Webb Feet,” a former one-story three bedroom/two bath home recently updated by builder Joel Ulrich. The renovation features a Brazilian ipe deck and an interior characterized by pops of color in the artwork and eclectic décor.

Moving east, the Tour participant comes to “Ultimate Dream,” a recently completed home built by Gary Ulrich Construction Inc. with dramatic spaces and an ocean-organic color scheme of turquoise, aqua, and lime green. A blend of sleek modern and comfy rustic interior design characterizes this ultimate beach house.

Tour tickets are available at the Lighthouse Gift Shop on St. George Island. To order tickets, call the Gift Shop at 927-7745. Tickets will be available on Tour Day at Lighthouse Park and at the St. George Plantation Clubhouse.

Tour weekend will begin with a Friday evening Kick-Off event at the Jay Abbott Firehouse from 6 to 8 p.m. A highlight of the evening will be a presentation on the early development of St. George Island by James L. Hargrove, author of “The Oyster King.”

Hargrove, author and retired University of Georgia professor, will share his fictionalized story of William Lee Popham, the first man to attempt the development of St. George Island in the 1920’s.

The St. George Island Tour of Homes is sponsored by the St. George Lighthouse Association, a non-profit Florida corporation that preserves, maintains and promotes the Cape St. George Lighthouse. The Lighthouse was restored in 2008 after collapsing in 2005. SGLA also built a replica of the Lighthouse Keeper’s House which is now a museum and gift shop. Proceeds from the Tour of Homes support the on-going maintenance of the Lighthouse, the Keeper’s House and Lighthouse Park.
