Built for plumbing magnate Richard Teller Crane, Jr., this Renaissance Revival Mediterranean-influenced “cottage” was the largest and most elaborate home ever built on Jekyll Island. It contained 30 rooms and 17 bathrooms! The grounds and sunken garden are among the most beautifully landscaped public areas on the Georgia coast.
