Konter Development Company Announces Development of Historic Piece of Property
May 13, 2015 – Konter Development Company recently announced plans to develop a historic piece of land located in the Bonna Bella area directly off of Laroche Avenue. Traditionally known as the German Country Club, the waterfront property was purchased by its previous owners in 1918, and has operated as a social gathering place for many renowned Savannah families over the last century.
Bluffside at Country Club Creek consists of over 20 acres of lush landscape with panoramic views of Country Club Creek which leads directly into the Herb River. Konter Development Company plans to develop the site into a new residential neighborhood, which will entail 7 waterfront home sites, 1 marsh front home site, and 58 interior lots. With respect to the German Country Club’s commitment to family and community oriented activities, the neighborhood, which has been designated as Bluffside at Country Club Creek, will include multiple amenities including an community fishing pier, activity center, and community green and playground.
Konter Development Company has compiled a team of experts to ensure the development of the property pays homage to its history while adding a new market of housing for potential buyers in an ever growing area of Chatham County. The architectural design of homes within Bluffside at Country Club Creek will be similar to other residential projects the company has completed in neighborhoods such as Palmetto Row and Tabby Village, both located within Sandfly, adjacent to Isle of Hope. Wide front porches, authentic shutters, and craftsmen exterior details are just a few examples of the detailed craftsmanship that will be consistent components of each residence.
Harvey Gilbert of Gilbert & Ezelle Real Estate Services, who served as brokers for marketing the property, stated that “the seller’s are very pleased to have sold the property to a highly experienced developer and homebuilder of integrity such as Konter Development Company who will successfully execute a carefully prepared plan for the benefit of the property and surrounding neighborhood.”
With over 50 years of experience in the real estate and construction industry Jerry Konter feels this was an extremely rare opportunity for his company and his family, which includes three generations who currently work with Konter. “As a multi-generational Savannah family business we are excited to develop this unique and wonderful property, with an eye to its history and a vision for its legacy,” says Jerry Konter, President of Konter Development Company.
Construction will start within the next three months, and the seven waterfront lots located along Country Club Creek are now available for reservations through Konter Development Company. For additional information on Bluffside at Country Club Creek, please contact Mark Konter at 912-341-4865.
