Shore Acres

The upscale neighborhood of Shore Acres may not be sequestered at the top of a hill overlooking the rest of the island, but it has the same feeling of seclusion and quiet that pervades neighborhoods that are in the highlands. While old-fashioned houses still dot the tree-lined streets of the neighborhood, many new constructions are popping up near the shore, complete with phenomenal views of the Harbor.

History of Shores Acres

Situated in Greater St. George, Shore Acres was formerly a semi-private development of homes tailored to the population's upper class families, given its enviable access to the shoreline and relative seclusion from the rest of the island. Today, many of those older homes still remain, mixed in with newer, more modern builds.
