Jekyll Island Club members bought adjacent lots north and south of the clubhouse and soon began building private family cottages. But some club members, including J. P. Morgan, preferred to live in an apartment, rather than the clubhouse rooms or a private cottage. Sans Souci Apartments, a 6-unit, 3-story building, was constructed in 1896. Designed by Charles Alling Gifford, the Shingle Style structure is considered one of the earliest condominiums in the country, since its occupants owned the units. Sans Souci is now a hotel.
