SEA ISLAND, Ga., Feb. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Cloister Ocean Residences have sold more than $18.8 million in luxury, shared ownership real estate since summer 2015.

The gated community is now 70% sold out, with some ownership categories having only one or two ownerships left and some being completely sold out.
Randy Burgess, Project Director for The Cloister Ocean Residences, said current owners and potential buyers have shown an increased interest due to limited availability. "Demand for The Cloister Ocean Residences has increased dramatically this past year. We attribute much of that to repeat Sea Island guests recognizing our incredible value, convenience and carefree lifestyle. Potential buyers also don't want to miss the last of this unique opportunity to own Sea Island oceanfront real estate for a fraction of the initial and ongoing costs of traditional whole ownership vacation homes."
Recently, each of the 22 one-, two- and three-bedroom residences was refurbished along with most of the public spaces as part of the property owner association's ongoing commitment to maintain the property at the highest level. New interiors were designed to lighten and brighten the residences in a seaside motif while retaining the elegance of the signature Addison Mizner Mediterranean design seen throughout Sea Island. In addition, a new oceanfront infinity-edge swimming pool pavilion was unveiled.
