Minutes from all the conveniences of downtown Ocean Springs.
If it’s really true that the three most important priorities for real estate are location, location, location – and it is true – then the Cottages at Oak Park are super-prime real estate.
Our cottage community is on Government Street across from the Ocean Springs Elementary School and the Coast Transit Authority bus stop. Within walking distance are the Boys and Girls Club, the YMCA, Broome’s Grocery, hair salons, restaurants, and lots of other retail and service options.
Location convenience means fewer trips by car and less money spent on gas. With gas prices rising, add transportation savings to the affordability boosts of lower monthly rents and utility costs. Some folks might even want to do entirely without a car and really help the family budget. According to the AAA’s 2010 estimates, buying and maintaining a typical car costs $9,500 annually. And that was before gas prices began creeping up.
You can feel safe at Oak Park. All the cottages are designed and built to FEMA hurricane-zone standards, capable of withstanding winds of up to 145 mph. All are set on piers and are well above the FEMA flood zone elevation requirements. There are no homes better built in South Mississippi.
We are planning to move in our first neighbors around June 1, 2011.
