Waterford Landing is one of Richmond Hill's outstanding residential communities. Developed on 300 acres of Georgia Low Country real estate, it is situated on a tidal stretch of the Jerico River which hosts a diverse list of marine life from oyster beds to shrimp, crab, redfish, sea trout, and dolphin pods, sometimes seen swimming near our boat docks. The expansive landscape of open salt water marshland offers spectacular views and deep water access by way of St. Catherines Sound.
The offshore waters of the Georgia coast are some of the most productive waters along the Atlantic coast for snapper, grouper and blue water species, such as mahi, tuna, wahoo, and billfish. Whether you enjoy off-shore fishing, visiting the beaches of the nearby islands, spending time shrimping or crabbing off the community boat docks, or just relaxing and marveling at the beauty of our setting sun, Waterford Landing is the place you will love to call home when the day is done.
Nearly 20 years ago, Waterford Landing development started with the construction of single family homes along the shores of the Jerico river. Since then, Waterford Landing has completely sold out, and over 300 residences, including townhomes, cottages, and single family homes, now make up one of the finest residential communities in the Savannah area.
The original master plan for the subdivision included amenities such as watercraft storage and docking facilities for boating enthusiasts, and a spacious recreation park with a pavilion, basket ball courts, and jungle gym for use by the community. An independently owned golf course, driving range, club house and community swimming pool were also available to homeowners on a membership basis. During the recent economic downturn, the golf course could not sustain itself and was forced into foreclosure. Homeowner's recognized an unprecedented opportunity and approved purchase of the entire property, swimming pool, clubhouse, equipment, and facilities, for the private use of our community.
Currently, plans and designs are under development for future land use that will enhance the beauty of the common property and expand the amenities available to our homeowners. With the acquisition of the former golf course property, more than 110 acres are now available to ensure that Waterford Landing will be bordered by private property and protected from undesirable development by a "green buffer zone" that lies between the community and any encroaching residential or commercial development. Former golf cart trails that wind their way throughout the community now serve as walking and biking trails available for the enjoyment of all residents. Also, many amenities that were previously available only under terms of an annual membership are now included for use by our homeowners, families, and guests.
Waterford Landing is located just outside the city limits of the City of Richmond Hill, one of the fastest growing communities in the nation. The local road networks in place provide convenient access to the city center, the best schools in the area, parks, churches, local businesses, and supermarkets. Our location affords residents the benefits of the privacy and security of a small suburban community with convenient access to the City of Savannah with its legendary charm and award winning restaurants, Savannah-Hilton Head airport, and points north and south along the I–95 corridor.
Because of the history of Savannah dating back to its founding in 1733, our community benefits from the culture, commerce, architecture, and elegance of this beautiful city long known as the "Hostess of the South".
