St. Simons Island is a natural paradise, attracting a wide and diverse range of wildlife on the ground, beneath the water and in the air.

In the development of Frederica, it has always been the vision to create a private, intimate Georgia coastal residential community that respects and preserves the beauty of the natural environment while providing an opportunity for generations of families to enjoy an unparalleled experience.

Originally developed by Sea Island Company and the Jones family, Huizenga Holdings continues the original vision for Frederica.  Every step taken here is carefully considered in advance and executed with extraordinary attention to detail that gives us pride and immense pleasure.

Huizenga Holdings embraced a unique opportunity to become part of Frederica's history in December 2010 - and purchased the private gated community.  "It is one of a kind, absolutely fabulous," shares Wayne Huizenga, Chairman and CEO of Huizenga Holdings.  Read more about our Community Developer.      

The Frederica community employs a set of Standards and Design Guidelines for Single Family Lot Development that advance fundamental planning principles to govern the growth of the community, namely:

  • The preservation and enhancement of the natural environment, native forest and wildlife.   
  • The cultivation of a high quality residential community that embodies a sense of permanence and antiquity associated with St. Simons and Sea Island communities. 
  • The achievement of community-wide continuity that embraces residential architecture, varied in style, yet consistent in design quality and craftsmanship.

Tremendous effort has gone into the preservation of existing animal and plant life, including the careful transplanting of hundreds of indigenous Live Oak trees.

When we let Nature lead the way, our own pleasure will surely follow.
